How does this work?

After you enroll in the class, the class facilitator will connect with you to get you set up on the group chat. Once the class begins, video links, supporting content, activities, and discussion questions will be posted to the group chat. You will be able to keep up-to-date with the class on a week-to-week basis on your own time!

Can I take this class and another WNA class?


Because FJ101 is entirely online, you will be able to take an in-person class during Wednesday Night Alive concurrently with FJ101.

A Note from the Facilitator

You may have seen me around the Downtown Campus welcoming new families into membership or walking guests around the building toward a worship service. I serve the church as the Director of Welcoming Ministry, so I get the chance to introduce people to this incredible place! I have taught Faith Journey 101 in person during Wednesday Night Alive, and now I am thrilled to facilitate the class online. I will be posting videos, online content, and discussion questions to our FJ101 chatroom, so you’ll be hearing a lot from me in the coming weeks. I look forward to getting to know all of you as we deepen our faith journeys together! If you would like more information on the class, please feel free to write me at barmstrong@stlukesokc.org.
