Common but deadly deceptions impact you every day. They can twist your thinking in ways you'd never expect and leave you with a life you never imagined. Your ability to recognize them can spell the difference between happiness and the loss of all you hold dear! Do you see them? Come and learn the truth and stand strong! Everybody is welcome so feel free to bring a friend as we study the book Twisting the Truth by Andy Stanley. This life group will meet for 6 weeks and begins Friday, Sept. 14th at 7 p.m. at the Block's home
Come and join us for a time of fun, fellowship, and family. Bring a friend and a snack to munch on. We'll be spending four Saturdays beginning September 15th bicycling, playing games, bowling, and possibly camping along with devotions and prayer. If you want to get out and move, this is the life group for you! Bring your family and join the fun! See David and Dianne Kelly for more information, and we hope to see you Saturday from 5-7!
In today's world, everybody pays someone to build or remodel their projects. People used to come together for just one day to build a barn. The men, young and old, started work on raising the barn at the crack of dawn. The women, young and old, prepared meals and helped where needed. All worked together and shared in the rewards of the finished project. For 4 weeks, we'll gather to discuss how this method of our ancestors is parallel to the way Christ is building His church! He needs everyone to build His church working together! Come and join us four Sundays, starting Sept. 16th at the Block's home at 4 p.m.
