Brave Enough to Lift the Veils: Finding the Freedom God Wants for You
Presented by Eleni Jakub and Lesley Hackman
“We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of God, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
(2 Corinthians 3:18)
Veils that we wear prevent us from beholding and reflecting the glory of God, and they keep us from becoming the women God created us to be. Many of us wear veils of shame, fear, lies and resentment. Are you brave enough to engage with the Lord and let Him heal your heart, transform your mind, and set you free? Are you brave enough to put down those things which weigh you down and prevent you from achieving the intimacy you want with God and others? This interactive and prophetic workshop will set you on the healing path of God.

Brave Enough to Look Within: Spring Cleaning for the Soul
Thursday, January 31, 7:15-9:00 p.m., Concourse
Presented by Barbara Ryan
Psalm 51:6 reads:, “Thou desirest truth in the inward being.” Do you know the truth about the residual darkness in your heart? Unacknowledged sin clogs the arteries of our souls, whereas confession and repentance lead to greater freedom and joy. In this seminar we'll look at the inward sins, the dark dispositions of our hearts that eventuate in outward sins, and we'll learn how to declare war on besetting weaknesses in our flesh.
