We're going digital!

Tuesdays  |  7pm  |  Zoom


We will be resuming our Foundations class via Zoom, a platform for web conferencing and communication. For more information, email Pastor Ross (ross@peninsulagrace.org). Or just come check out the Zoom class here!


If Tuesdays at 7pm don't work, we'll be able to record our classes and you can engage at a time that is more convenient for you. (But if you can make it some Tuesday, we'd love to see virtual you!) See below for the corresponding archived video and handouts for that week's class!


Each week has a downloadable version of the handouts that pertain to that particular lesson, but if you'd like the entire workbook for all 11 weeks at once, find it here.
