The Foundations program is your introduction to the teachings of the New Church. This is an interactive experience designed to serve people who are exploring questions about God, life after death, the Bible, and spiritual growth, and are interested in the New Church perspective on these ideas.

This is a seven-week program. Each week will feature a different lesson and reflections.
