opportunity for YOU (believers of all ages) to reignite your faith in Jesus Christ and find power
to live a life that radiates His love. How? Through the Christian Life and Witness Course
(CLWC). This three-session training equips you to apply God's Word to everyday life,
pursue spiritual maturity, share your faith with others, and, if you choose, serve as Rock the
River counselor. Not only is it designed to equip you in your Christian life but it's fun and
FREE and no registration is necessary! When is it? CLWC classes will be held on Tuesdays-
Saturdays at various locations in the Ottawa region between May 22-June 9. For example,
you can go on Wednesday nights from 7-9:30pm for three weeks at the Life Centre. For more
