— Virginia M. Rimm Vassalboro United Methodist Church, Maine "Companions in Christ has really helped me and my group visualize our place in God's kingdom. It's not just a course. The length of it makes it a practice or way of life. We are praying more, listening to God's Word and listening to God speak to us. It is definitely changing our lives as we become more active and obedient to God's will."
