It’s God’s desire to make us more like Himself and sex within marriage is often a powerful training ground for godly character. (Class Cost $10)

Winter Study Series
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Jesus displayed these excellent qualities throughout his life on earth, because they reflect the character of God himself. From the moment you received Jesus as your Savior and Lord, that “fruit” has gradually and increasingly begun to appear in your life. This study helps you recognize these truths and how you can increasingly allow the Holy Spirit to work through you to bear good fruit in all walks of your life.
