COFFEE BREAK


When: Coffee Break meets every Tuesday beginning September

Where: Meets in two locations:

Middle level of Calvary CRC

Wooddale Lutheran Church, 4003 Wooddale Ave. St. Louis Park

Using the Bible and a lesson book, women prepare for lessons on their own before meeting together to discuss and learn from one another. Women are encouraged to invite their friends and neighbors to Coffee Break to further build community and relationships as they explore and share their faith with one another. Childcare including Bible stories and crafts is provided at both locations.
