Dare to Dream Sermon Series
At the beginning of January many of us take time to explore goals, dreams, or intentions for the New Year...and sometimes we are left wondering... Are my goals too small? Am I on the correct path? Does God have a greater dream in store for me? Alongside Rev. Mike Slaughter's text Dare to Dream the TUMC Family will share in a six-week study on Moses to learn that we are part of a dream far greater than we could ever imagine.February 24 — Dare to Dream: Perseverance ~ Deuteronomy 34:1–12
A series of Alzheimer’s Training Classes will be presented by the Alzheimer's Association, Central and North Chapter starting in February. Classes will be held during the Sunday School hour.
