MAKING CHANGE

Abundant Life

Making Change is a Wednesday evening course that begins October 28th, 6:00 - 8:00 pm. We will meet in the Decision Hills worship center for large group teaching led by Pastor Jeff, then break up into smaller groups for application of the material and prayer.

Jesus said he came so that we might have "abundant life" (see John 10:10). Yet so many Christians feel stuck, unable to experience all God wants to give us. What keeps us in bondage? The Bible outlines several ways we can keep ourselves from God's abundance. Judgments, lies we've believed, inner vows, and much more can keep us trapped.

This seven-week course teaches biblical ways to deal with the roots that keep you from abundant life. Each week includes solid biblical teaching that connects to daily realities. Then trained leaders will meet in small groups with participants, inviting God to make changes in individual lives. Each week also includes homework for deeper study and growth.

If you have been following Jesus for a while but know God desires to give you more, Making Change is for you. This experience will happen at the Worship Center at Decision Hills on Wednesday evenings, starting October 28th.

For more information or to sign up, contact Pastor Jeff by October 20th. Email him at pastorjeff@opendoornewlondon.org or text 612-812-1783.

A small group from our Prayer Ministry went through the Making Change course last summer. Here's what three of them had to say about this experience:

This course created in me the desire to know God on a level that I have never explored before. The rigid, distant god that I grew up with has become the tender ever-present Father that I have always yearned to know on a very personal level. Thank you, Jeff, for teaching this course and cultivating in my heart questions and answers that I  never knew I had. The freedom that has been set in me is more profound than ever before!!! This is a class that should not be overlooked - it's a must for everyone who is longing to see yourself the way God see you!

I found myself taking this course simply because a friend invited me. I was looking for connection with other believers and hoping to learn something in the process. I wasn't expecting to be released from a hidden unforgiveness I had been harboring. This course was intense, yet gentle and effective. It shed light on lies I believed and allowed me to let go of what God never intended me to have. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to experience God's lovingkindness.

I was privileged to take the Making Change course this summer. I believe that anyone who wants to dive into the "deep end" of the faith pool, will benefit immensely from this course. You will find out things about yourself, and your relationship with our Father, that you may not have realized previously. You will also benefit from the exploration of your prayer life. Highly recommend!
