  • Becoming New in Christ (Men)  •  Beginning Sept 14 for 19 weekly sessions

    When & Where: Mon  •  Beginning Sept 14 for 19 weekly sessions  •  7:30-8:30 pm  •  virtual via Microsoft Teams meeting platform - link provided at registration

    Sometimes our worship loses its passion. Our prayer life becomes stagnant. We forget why we are serving God. And slowly, subtly, the world's ways become our ways. In this 19-session study, the book of Romans addresses these problems, showing us how we can break out of old patterns and become new in Christ.

    No charge for the class, but please purchase a copy of Romans: Becoming New in Christ.

    A link to the Microsoft Teams meeting will be provided in the registration confirmation email.

    Please contact Taylor Newsom at taylor.newsom82@gmail.com with questions.
