Maranatha Newsletter – July 14-20

Our class was taught by Delene Tegeler on a new version of the 10 commandments. This week she focused on commandments 2 (Thou shall not front.) and 3 (Thou shall not trip.). She will be continuing her discussion of the book "Not Safe for Church: Ten Commandments for Reaching New Generations" by Jasmine Smothers and F. Douglas Jr. Powe during the next two weeks.
