As I mentioned on Sunday, everything we do here at Freedom has to line up with our core values. If we have it on the calendar then it should be obvious how it helps us to connect, train or impact. Along with that we are working to give each of you more options in each of these categories that don't add more programs but do equip each disciple in their next stage of growth.
With that firmly in our sights, we are mixing up the format of Connecting Point 1 on Wednesday nights. Here's what will stay the same:
Time and Place: Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00, at Freedom
Youth meet in the FCC
KidzConnect for kids in JK to Grade 6
Nursery care for infants and Preschoolers
Group studies and discussion to challenge your spiritual growth
What's changing is your options. Instead of every group doing studying the same content and asking the same questions, you have the opportunity to choose a group that best answers the question: What's next on your discipleship journey?
Here are the options that will begin on Wednesday, January 30 and run for 12 weeks (not including March Break)...
Everything You Need - a study of 2 Peter 1:3-11
led by Pastor Del and Arlene Wells, second group discussion table led by Jim & Kelly Klujber as needed

each week will include a teaching time by Pastor Del followed by small group discussion
NOTE: This course will also be offered online via video teaching beginning in February.

Is it just me or is that VERY exciting? I can't wait to get started.
