Discipleship Training
Discipleship training classes are Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m. Men will be studying the Five Love Languages. By learning the five love languages, you and your spouse, teenager, and your child will discover your unique love languages and learn practical steps in truly loving each other. The ladies will be doing The Struggle is Real. In this 6-part series, we will explore why life’s a struggle and what to do about it. With God as the hero of the story, a hard day has new meaning. We can find joy in him instead of feeling stuck. And our lives can be defined by redemption instead of struggle.  There are also classes for kids of all ages!
We Have a Village!
Our Moldova Team for 2019 is continuing to form and they will be ministering to the village of Tarancuta. There is a young pastor there who has planted a church, and our team can support him with our projects! Please add this village and the work we’ll be doing there to your prayer list.
