Mastermind by Craig Groeschel
Too often we’re prisoners to our thoughts: those voices telling us to worry, that we aren’t good enough, or that we can’t ever change our behavior.  But Mastermind , a four-part series shines a light on the strongholds that hold us down and gives us the tools we need to shatter them. Through the healing power of Christ and some practical applications, we can rewire our brain to become the person God designed us to be.  Free.  A 4 week video series.  More information in the lobby on the weekend.

Dec. 2:  Our Annual Christmas Show.  Two performances on Sunday.  Tickets available soon.

Christmas Breakfast with Santa and Santa Games, Saturday, December 15@8 am.  Sponsored by MenTooBoys and WomenTooGirls.  Free!
