WILLING BUT WORRIED: How To Tell Others About Jesus Like You’ve Always Wanted To With Abe & Jordyn Skacel

August 7th        August 14th            August 21st

8:45am-9:45am – Fellowship Hall

We know that Christians should be telling others the Good News about Jesus, but how? What does it look like? How do I bring it up? How do I bridge the awkwardness? What if they ask a question I don’t know the answer to? This special “pop-up” class will address these questions and more. Join us for 3 weeks of practical, interactive training on not just the “why” of everyday evangelism but also the “how”.

*Classes build on one another but are designed so that you can take part in any class you can attend.

Childcare

  • Childcare can be provided.
  • Sign-up for childcare TODAY by filling out the online form in the Lanse Link or on the small bulletin board in the foyer

Childcare Help

Interested in helping with childcare for future pop-up educational classes? We are looking for volunteers to help with this ministry. Adults must be able to obtain clearances. Questions? See Pastor Matt.

Ark Park Meet n’ Play

Moms and their littles are invited each Wednesday for a time to play outside and have fun together! We’ll meet at the Ark Park at 9:00am or come and go as you please. The church building will be open for restrooms and water, and juice boxes will be provided. Event is cancelled in the event of rain.
