Being a Blessing is Not Always Easy

CLASS LEADERS NEEDED!!!!!

CLASS LEADER REQUIREMENTS

The main goal of the Class System is to assist the Pastor with member communications through the use of small groups.  This system helps us to keep up with members so no one goes unnoticed. (Ex.  The member was sick and the church did not know; the member had a death in family and the church did not know, etc.)  You will be the primary person to contact an assigned list of members on a monthly basis.  Please see Rev. Higgins (Dance4Lord69@gmail.com or 860.916.7298) for more information.
