Hallelujah Anyway – New Class

A new class takes place on Sundays at 8:45 am in the West Side Room beginning May 7. We’ll explore “Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy” by Anne Lamott. Fans of Lamott know her as a self-described crab who always finds redemption and mercy in the smallest and oddest day-to-day encounters. If you’re wondering how an everyday person can walk every day with God, Lamott is a wonderful how-to voice. Each class is stand-alone, so come when the spirit moves you. Books are available in the church office for $10 apiece. For more information, please reach out to Jim Horton ( or Mark Babunovic (
