NEW WEDNESDAY EVENING CLASS
____________________________________________________________________
Registration is now open for a new coed discipleship class - When the
Game is Over It All Goes Back Into The Box. To register, just go to
pabc.org and click on the Event Registrations tab.

It’s a thrill to win at checkers or Clue or Trivial Pursuit. You sweep aside the
other players and you “own” the board. It’s also a thrill to win a promotion at
work, the new house you wanted, that sports car you’ve always eyed. But, just like the game
cards, the tokens, and the timer, those prizes are temporary. When the game is over, they
all go back into the box. The wisest player remembers that the game is always going to end.
So when everything goes back in the box, you’ll have made what is temporary a servant to
what is eternal, and you’ll leave this life knowing you’ve achieved the only victory that
matters.
Wednesday evenings from February 25th - April 1st at 6:15 pm in Room 1125. Facilitated by
Doug Nix. No materials required - no cost.
