all the way through the week.

GROWTH MINISTRIES
Pastor David Krueger–Associate Pastor, [email protected]
ADULT GROWTH CLASSES
-- Join Any Class at Any Time --
• *NEW* ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD - Sundays 9:30 am When people
encounter God, the come away changed. Such events recorded in
the Bible were significant for the people who were directly involved,
but they also are important for us today. These events reveal God to
us - His character, His heart, His power, His plans. Because of this,
studying the biblical accounts of God-encounters in history can open
our hearts to encounter Him today. Room 204 with Tom Davis.
• BASIC TRAINING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN - Sundays at 9:30 am
(Men) It’s easy to be a man, but it’s hard to be a good one. The
excuses of the weak and the wimpy are endless...Life isn’t fair. The
playing field isn’t level. The rat race of the marketplace gets old fast! Basic Training For a Few Good Men will build you up in order
for you to be free to “be all that you can be,” a man of convictions,
commitments, compassion, and courage. Room 203 with Robert
Proctor.
• BETTER - Sundays at 9:30 am - The Better Bible study is for anyone who
is asking the tough questions of life and wondering if answers even
exist. Questions from your life - answers from the heart of God. Room
105 with Pastor Brad Lockwood
• DISCOVERING WFMC - Sundays at 9:30 am - Find out what we
believe as Free Methodist’s and why we believe it. Take this class if you
are interested in membership as well. Conference Room with Pastor
Dave Krueger.
