Freedom in Christ
Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019 I 11:30 am I FCC Rm B203
 Are You Ready for True and Lasting Freedom? – The Freedom In Christ small group is designed to help every Christian become a fruitful disciple and to take steps forward from things that may be holding us back in life. The focus is on how to believe, and not how to behave and will help us learn to renew our minds according to who God says we are, and to connect with Jesus in a deeper way.  We will learn how right thinking equals right believing, and this course is especially effective for those facing challenges such as condemning thoughts, patterns of wrong behavior, spiritual struggles, hopelessness. Come join us during 3rd service in Room 202. Sign up on the plaza or online.
