Are You Ready To Grow Spiritually?

Over 400 people have made first time decisions or recommitments to follow Christ in the last 18 months!!  If you are one of them, CONGRATS!!You’re at the very beginning of a new life-- one filled with grace, peace, and joy that can only come from knowing God.  You’re invited this June to take part as we are launching a weekly new believer’s class called, “Fresh Start With God.”  This class 4 weeks in duration & will meet each week during the first service & you can join at any time.  It will encourage & empower you as you learn to follow Jesus Christ!  The Bible tells us to “Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be — you get a fresh start, your slate’s wiped clean.”  Psalm 32:11 (MSG)  When you make a commitment of your life to Jesus, not only is your “slate wiped clean”, you also get a “fresh start” – a new lease on life.  This class is designed to help you have a good start to your fresh start.  During these weeks together you’ll discover and begin to unwrap ten gifts that God gives you:

Forgiveness – Accepting God’s Grace
Relationship – Worshipping
Encouragement – Handling Failure
Scripture – Understanding God’s Word
Help – Following God’s Guidance

Shape – Being You
Togetherness – Living in Community
Authority – Serving Others
Recognition – Being Baptized
Testimony – Telling Your Story

This class will provide you with the basics to begin walking with God.  It is the primer for future study.  With the completion of this course you will be prepared to take classes that will lead you deeper in your Christian life.  You’ll have increased confidence and understanding at your next level of study.  It is our deep desire that these weeks will enable you to:  “Grow in grace and understanding of our Master and Savior, Jesus Christ.”  2 Peter 3:18 (MSG)  For more information or to sign-up, email freshstart@freedomlife.tv!
