The Week of Sunday, Jan 13th
- New Classes Starting - The New Year is a great time to jump into a new small group or existing classes. Many of our existing classes are launching new studies. We also have brand new classes beginning including a Disciple 1 study. Bill and Linda McBroom will be launching the brand new Disciple 1 study on Wednesday Nights at from 6-7:30pm. (Disciple 1 is great way to learn about the Bible and how to live as a disciple as it is informational and transformational.) Please check out our Online Beacon for all classes and small groups, and the new opportunities for 2019. If you are interested in joining a class or group see the sign-up table in the back of the FLC, visit io/adultgroups, or call Pastor Faith at 651-0721.
- Stirrings – 21 Days of worship, prayer, and fasting
MAKE 2019 YOUR BEST YEAR YET! Instead of resolutions in 2019, make SPACE FOR GOD to STIR your inner being. Get ready for what God is going to do in and through you. Be filled with God's fullness and deepen your love for Christ. When you put God first, everything else comes into perspective: your time, your finances, your relationships, all your goals. Instead of resolutions, spend 21 days focused on God and the New Year will be a great year. Beginning Jan 7th at 6am in the Sanctuary.
