                        the weapons of our battle are not of flesh but are enormously powerful, capable            beginning time
                          of destroying fortresses. Look at what confronts you.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4, 7a)

                          We will examine the very real battle that continues between good and evil. Who is at war and
where do we stand on the battlefield? Knowing the tactics of the enemy and the abundance of weapons of grace we have
 available to us are things that every Christian needs to know. This evening of teaching and discussion is intended to
              strengthen you to engage in the daily spiritual battles with confident hope in Christ’s victory.
                                            All are invited. Refreshments will be served.
