NOVEMBER 6 - 7 // CHRIST COMMUNITY CHURCH
COVID-19 is a generational global catastrophe that will create significant disruption for many. But COVID-19 is just ONE example of a situation when the plans we have made, may have fallen apart, totally outside of our control.
This conference is for the man who has experienced failed plans or lost confidence in God, His people, and His promises. The good news is that we have hope! This weekend we will study these issues through the lens of Scripture and the examples of godly men throughout history who have gone through similar or even worse situations in regard to their finances, relationships, health, and careers. We hope you will join us! Register by Monday, November 2.
