Resolving Everyday Conflict
Sunday Evening Seminar
Starts September 8 at 6 p.m.
Conflict shows up everywhere in our lives-whether it is with a co-worker, family member, friend or complete stranger. Maybe it's not a big blowup but just every day difficult situations that wear us down, cause us to build up walls and tear down relationships. We can't pretend it doesn't affect us.
What does God have to say about conflict? Discover God's ways of resolving conflict, so you can approach conflict as an opportunity to make relationships closer and stronger, and best of all, pleasing and honoring to God!
Join us as we begin a new evening series, "Resolving Everyday Conflict" with Pastor Mark on September 8 at 6 p.m.
Coming back from summer vacations and travels means this is a good time to get settled into an Adult Bible Fellowship. If you haven’t found an ABF home yet, or if you would like to visit a couple, September is a good month to do it. Also, new Growth Groups will be forming and sign ups will be available soon!
