PURPOSE CLASS
Growth Track 301 - "Purpose!" - begins THIS Sunday in the Red Room from 9:45 - 10:15! If you completed Growth Track 201, this is the next step for you! Join Pastor Lesh and find out how your gifts can help fulfill God's calling for Family Church in our families, in our community, and in our world! 

WHY?
By getting involved in the Growth Track, you are growing as a Christian. It’s through service that you become part of the mission of the local church. You are part of the church when you are saved and become part of God’s family. But you grow in relationship with the local church by joining your gifts, your talents, and your callings with other believers. In 301 of Growth Track, you will discover your giftings, and how your passion can push forward the cause of Christ. You’re important to God and to Family Church. We need your help to fulfill the vision of Family Church. With your help, we can fulfill God’s calling for us in our community..until everyone has heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sign up for Growth Track 301 here! http://www.familychurch.net/growth-track We’ll have the donuts and hot coffee ready for you!
