Treasures of the Transformed Life will be the primary source for the upcoming study and will include daily readings. Through the study, you will learn how to live a more fulfilled, rich, meaningful, and joyful life. Small group meeting days and times are varied, and it costs nothing to attend.

“We hope that you will come out to our 8:30 a.m. service or our 11:00 a.m. service and hear John Ed, and then join us for a campaign kickoff luncheon immediately following the 11:00 a.m. service. We would love to have you be a part of one of our groups for a more in-depth study of Transformed Living,” said Dovey. For more information, contact the church office at (334) 566-3881.
