Today, April 11, we begin our 5-week video Bible study called “Dream Big” by Bob Goff, meeting in Westminster Hall at 9:15 a.m. and livestreamed on our Facebook page. If you would like to volunteer to teach one of the sessions, please let Cyndi know by emailing her at email@example.com.
Here's the book description:
God has given you gifts, talents, abilities...and dreams. Unfortunately, many of us have been told that pursuing those dreams is impractical, incorrect, or impossible. Bob Goff is on a mission to shake you free of this mindset and help you step into the version of the life you dreamed about when you were young. In this five-session video Bible study, he draws on principles from the Bible - and a lifetime of dreaming large - to help you reconnect with the passions that God has placed inside of you. You can step out of your comfort zone, take big risks, and have the confidence that God will be there with you on the journey.
