That Man is You

TMIY (That Man is You) men’s group is beginning its fall season Saturday, September 11, and the lineup of ten speakers is incredible! The season theme is Thy Kingdom Come. The first meeting kicks off as Mark Hartfiel helps us enter into an eternal perspective right from the start with Kingdom Living. Discover that the kingdom of God is not of this world but in your midst and within your heart. Overthrow the power of sin and usher in a new way of living. Cultivate an eternal perspective as a prerequisite for kingdom living.

Each session begins at 8:30am with a light breakfast in PLC Rooms 7-8 and ends at 10:00am. It is open to all of the men of the parish.

For more information please contact: Vince at 847-858-9566 or vince@fpsc.com.
