Invest Skills Classes

Wednesday Evenings November 29, December 6, & December 13
6:30–8:00 p.m. Beginning in the Sanctuary
No Registration Required.
As we currently undertake a yearlong emphasis on investing all we have for the kingdom’s glory, our challenge is for one family to invest in one family for one year–believing that God will move in their lives. Through this challenge, we trust He will save, deliver, transform, reconcile, and renew the lives of families in our community.
To invest to the max requires that we have a few skills, a few tools, if you will, in our toolbox! That is the aim of our Invest skills classes starting on Wednesday, November 29 and meeting every Wednesday evening for three weeks. We will spend this time considering and honing practical skills necessary to increase the kingdom impact of our individual lives and church ministries.
Classes Include
Building a Strong Family Foundation • Financial Freedom
Natural Evangelism 
We invite you to learn more about each class and choose the one you may be interested in!

Financial Freedom is a class designed to help the individual and the family maximize their monetary investment. The class will be conducted in a highly respectful and practical environment. Some subjects considered will be debt reduction, giving principles, financial planning, and investment strategies.

ROOM 301
Natural Evangelism is a class aimed at equipping the believer to share their faith in almost any environment. This strategy is aptly named, in that it is non-confrontational and draws on the personal experience of the sharer. The learner will have the opportunity to not only learn a strategy to share the gospel, but to also develop your personal testimony, pray specifically for the lost, be intentional in your efforts, and bridge new believers into the church body. Steve believes in the “life changing power of the gospel “, and desires to see every Christian equipped to deliver this most essential of messages!
