SUMMER session 2015

Thursdays, June 25 - September 17, 6:45-7:45pm

Looking for lasting weight loss and a closer relationship with God?  Many diet experts agree that developing self-control is a key part of weight loss and weight management. But the Bible says that believers develop self-control only when Christ is at the center of their lives. The secret to self-control is giving up control to God!  Learn positives steps toward letting God take over the management of your mind, emotions, body and spirit for true, lasting balance in this 12 week study, Giving Christ Control, with orientation on June 25th.  The cost is $100 for new members (includes Member Kit & Study) and $25 for returning members. To register, call 570-729-7011 by June 10.
