COMMUNING WITH GOD: 
Wednesday nights: 6:30-8:00 PM, 8 weeks from  September 13 – November 1,  Finance office

In learning to develop a deeper relationship with God, two-way communication is the key. He hears and speaks to us; we, in turn, must talk and listen to Him. Today so much information bombards us from many sources. We need to discern His voice so our hearts will become strong and we will become wise as we learn to walk as He guides us. We will be using Pricilla Shirer’s books: Discerning God’s Voice”, &  “He Speaks to Me”. Please purchase both online. Call Jim Curry to sign up by September 13: 240-298-7062
