Now at Ascension, EfM (Education for Ministry) classes will begin on September 27 in the ground floor meeting room from 6 to 8:30pm. Through scripture study, prayer and reflection, EfM groups move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God’s kingdom. This is accomplished by reflecting on both Christian tradition and the collective experience of the group’s members. The group will meet on Tuesdays September through May. There will be a cost for materials and commitment of time. For further information, please call Andrew Jones at 646-450-4855 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
