Men’s Group: Wild At Heart

Wednesdays 6:00-8:00 PM, 7 weeks    

A man needs adventure…in his work, in his love, and in his spiritual life. Deep in his heart he wants a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue because that’s how God created him. The problem is that deep wounds from earlier years have taken away his confidence, and in some cases, his masculinity. This 7-week study we will look at what makes a man come alive and what stirs his heart.

I Was Broke Now I’m Not

Wednesdays 6:00-8:00 PM, 6 weeks

We’ve all experienced the stress and frustration that comes from finances or a lack of finances. In this 6-week study, Joseph Sangl shares his struggle and how his family went from being broke, with an average bank account balance of $4.13, to living a fully funded life. Joe knew there had to be a better way to manage his money and he resolved to discover it. Over the course of the next few years, he was able to eliminate his debt and begin living a fully funded life. This study focuses on the very principles and tools that allowed Joe to take these life-altering steps.
