Small Group study (all are invited) led by Michelle Ibsen and Valarie Moses.  “The Daniel Dilemma” will be studied.  “As Christians, how do we not only stay engaged with the ever-shifting, ungodly culture around us but also influence it for good? How do we stand strong without becoming brittle and dogmatic? How do we love people vastly different in their attitudes and lifestyles without compromising our biblical beliefs? These questions are being asked by Christians today from breakfast tables to water coolers to Bible study groups. The book of Daniel provides us with clear answers.” Class will be held in the library on Thursday at 10:00 a.m.  Please email Michelle (fpumcf@bellsouth.net) if you need a book.  Start date is January 25.
