HIGHER GROUND - 2016 Fall Session
The psalmist wrote, "Lead me to the rock that is higher than I." (61:2b) God is that rock!
On Thursday evenings through November 3 we are hosting Higher Ground. Higher Ground is designed to encourage and support families with ideas and information while enhancing the emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical balance of each life. Classes offered are Parenting, Cooking (Class is filled), and Managing your Finances, Emergency Preparedness and Life Lessons.
The evening schedule is Registration & Dinner 5:00 - 6:00 pm, Classes 6:15 - 7:30 pm. The evening ends with families "shopping" at the Higher Ground Store, using points earned in the class they attend. Children will have their own special area to shop as well.
If you would like more information, please contact Pastor Becky at (231) 796-7771 or email@example.com
