Equipping God's People Courses now being offered

Take the next step in ministry.  The Equipping God's People classes are being taught so that we can learn, pray and consider how God may use us at this incredibly important time in history.  This fall all 8 sessions will be taught on Thursday nights. Growing Effective Churches is a focus for our Susquehanna Conference.  It is through this emphasis that the class is made available to us. The purpose of the class is to give members the experience, purpose and tools for continuing to make UM congregations VITAL for our mission with God to love the world. 

Join us for this class.  Ephesians 4:12 calls us to this work - ”to equip God's people for the work of sharing and building up the body of Christ...”
