Over the course of three talks, Jim will guide and coach us in “Getting a Grip: Laying hold of God’s plan for your life!”

Getting a Grip

Talk #1: Where’s the Hook?
Who’s the main character in your story? What does he want more than anything? What is he willing to do to get it?

Talk #2: Some Assembly Required

If children came with some assembly required, would you follow the instructions or wing it and hope for the best? By faith in Jesus, we’ve become body parts—members of the body of Christ—and Romans 12 provides our assembly instructions. So, let’s not wing it.

Talk #3: Discovering Your Calling

Ephesians 2:10 claims that your Creator has already prepared your work. Have you discovered it yet?
