New classes to begin ON Wednesday, August 23, 2017  6:00pm 

"House or home parenting" 
TEACHERS: landon & amanda huffer

To say that parenting is a great challenge is a vast understatement.  With so many competing ideas and philosophies, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and paralyzed.  But there is HOPE.  In the midst of all the confusion about parenting, God has given us a blueprint for parenting with clear, timeless truths that still work today.  10 week study - Room 182D.  Materials are available for $10. 

"Love and respect"

"Ignite your passion for god"
