    Tuesday, January 5th, Cindy Carter will begin the study: Our Christian American Heritage. Class will be held in the Family Center Fireside Room from 10:00-11:00. This study looks at a variety of historical resources to see how Christianity has influenced the founding of our nation and the Christian influence in America after that, including the sources and results of the Great Awakenings. Some book excerpts are from "The Light and the Glory" by Peter Marshall (Jr) and David Manual, "Of Plymouth Plantation" by William Bradford, William Federer's "America's God and Country, Encyclopedia of Quotations" and several other books. The series covers from Christopher Columbus to present day and is a very uplifting and encouraging look at our nation and how God has worked in America. To sign up, contact Cindy Carter (360-376-2187) (cindy@orcasonline.com) for more information.
