Have you ever wondered what you were created to do? You may think you have an idea but aren't positive that you are fulfilling the purpose for which God created you. Once you find the will of God for your life, then you will have the assurance and joy that comes from knowing exactly where God wants you to be. Putting God first in all that we do is the number one way we learn to follow God's will. When you put him first, then the desire of your heart changes to match up with his. His word is his will for every believer, however seeking him first will ensure he will speak to you, and lead you to the pathway he has for every choice and decision you must make. Once you find his will. following and fulfilling the will of God becomes a lifelong journey. We would like to invite you to join us for this life-changing series on "How to find, follow and fulfill the Will of God."

Around the year 95 AD John the Disciple was on the island of Patmos. One morning while he was worshiping the Lord he had an amazing experience. The veil that separates Heaven and Earth was rolled back and he was permitted to view past, present, and future events from God's perspective. He wrote down what he saw and heard in what became known as the Apocalypse which in Greek means Revealing. It became the final book of the New Testament. You know it as the book of Revelation.

In a world that seems to reject everything we believe, how do we walk closely with God without caving to pressure or alienating those we hope to reach? In this class, we will examine the life of the prophet Daniel, who persevered in a corrupt culture that closely resembles our own—and emerged as an influential force in God’s redemptive plan. We will learn how to hold firmly to biblical beliefs without becoming obnoxious, insulting, or mad. Additionally, we will learn how to stand strong while still loving others. Because standing for truth isn’t about winning the argument; it’s about winning hearts. And when we learn the secret of connecting before correcting, we will discover that we can respond to today’s hard questions without compromising grace or truth.
