Men's Fellowship-Fall Series

Posted: 11/12/2013

This Friday will be the last presentation in our fall series of the Men's Fellowship Group. I hope you will join me to hear the inspiring story of Amy Purdy, a 19 year old girl who was confronted with a horrendous and crippling illness but was able to use her imagination to dream, visualize her dream, get creative and work incredibly hard to make her dream come true. It's a truly inspiring story with lessons that we can all benefit from. I look forward to seeing you on Friday morning.

Doors open at 6am. Fellowship and a great breakfast by Bill Haljun and Warren McKenna at 6:15. Program begins at 6:30 and ends at 7:30 with small group discussions. It's a great time. In fact, we did a little survey on Program #1-93% liked the video content (a lot!!!) and found framework for discussion to be very helpful. So come join us this Friday in the Great Hall!
