Lenten Bible Study

We all hunger for long-lasting, life- giving relationships. For many, they are a struggle to establish or even maintain. We all desire a deep relationship with our spouse, parents, children, coworkers, friends, and others around us. In reality, the quality of life we live is directly related to the success or failure of these relationships.

In Building Successful Relationships, Michael Fletcher gives seven practical keys that will help build strong relationships throughout every area of life. He shows the central issue in every relationship is the hearts of those involved. When the seven principles are applied, you will begin to see your heart and the hearts of those around you grow closer. This series will enable you to see an increased level of intimacy in your existing relationships, help you develop new relationships, or repair a damaged relationship from your past.

Join us on March 3, 12, 26, and April 2 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
