  • the road back to you: an enneagram study

    wednesdays at 10:00 am beginning may 1st

    room 202

    Have you ever heard of an "Enneagram?" It is an ancient personality type system that can help us learn more about who we are and how we operate. In The Road Back to You, authors Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile access the wisdom of the Enneagram, connecting it with Christian spirituality to help us become our most authentic selves.

    For 5-weeks, Rev. Matt Hall will use The Road Back to You to help you learn more about what drives our behavior and how God created us. 

    The cost for the study is $20 which pays for the book and a study guide. You can bring the money to the first class or bring it by the Church Office. 

    Please sign up for the class by clicking here by April 29th. 

    For more information please contact Rev. Matt Hall at mhall@1stchurch.org or call him at 276-733-5207 .
