Sharing Jesus Without Freaking Out
June 24th - July 8th, 2018
Does the thought of having a conversation about your faith with a non-believer freak you out? Would you like to be able to share what you believe through normal conversation?
Join us as Dr. Daniel Overdorf leads us in a 3-week study of the book, "Sharing Jesus Without Freaking Out". In this class we will learn how to share our faith with others through normal, everyday conversations and how to lessen the anxiety that we often feel.
We are making the book available at the Welcome Center at a discounted price of $10 (while supplies last) or you can purchase it on your own prior to the start of the class. To purchase the book from the church, choose the option to purchase the book as you are completing your Registration or bring $10 to the Welcome Center Sunday.
