Rhema Christian Center
A new growth group, Seeing Beyond Failure, began Wednesday, Jan. 3, and will run for 13 weeks from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Join Pastor Stewart Farley and Dave Beavers for an in-depth look and discussion about failure, something we all deal with. You’ll learn how to re-define failure by looking at it from God’s perspective. If failing has been hard for you to deal with in the past, join Pastor Stewart and Dave for this 13 week study and learn to not only redefine “your” failures, but learn how to use them as stepping stones toward the life God has planned for you! After this study, you’ll never be the same again, because you will never see yourself and what you do the same again. Sign up online at TheRhemaLife.com or call the church office at 304-645-6999.
