FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY CLASS Is “budget” a bad word at your house? It can be a daunting concept for many of us. But did you realize that a budget is simply telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went! When you go through Financial Peace University you’ll have your own “a-ha” moments. You won’t believe the hope and peace you’ll have when you start learning God’s ways of managing money. Interested, then sign up by next Sunday, December 15th in the foyer between services. Classes begin Sunday, January 5th at 10:45AM in the Stables. Sign up early as seating is limited. There is a small cost for materials. Questions? See Les Willson, Ryan Sanders or Clint Krushinsky.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Would you be interested in working with our children ages 2-3 & 4-5 for 2014 in Children’s Church during the 10:45 morning worship service? If you are interested or need more information, contact Alice Metzger, 717.371.9447.
