Thursday

*REAL Life Studies Beginning January 22, 9:00 am

Breath – by Priscilla Shirer
We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing.
It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
Facilitators: Krista Tedrow & Terri Rawls

Victory in Spiritual Warfare: Field Guide for Battle – by Tony Evans

Facilitator: Susan Miller
