24/6

November 15 – December 13, 10:45 am
Dining Room, Led by Dan Bransom

In a 24/7 world we need a 24/6 solution… and there is one. We will spend five weeks studying Dr. Matthew Sleeth’s book, “24/6” on finding space in life for a true Sabbath experience. This is not about guilt… this is about freedom. Time is God’s gift to you and Sabbath is how we receive it. So join us and get back the time God wants you to have.
