FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY

Imagine yourself DEBT FREE!

TLC is offering Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) – a 9-week class that presents biblical, practical steps on how to get rid of debt, manage your money and spend & save wisely. The average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 within the first 90 days! Past FPU participants/TLS parents Haley & Joel Meier said: “We never really knew much about finances and just thought we were doing the right thing. After FPU, we learned how to save and now know where every penny goes every month. It has truly been life changing!”

Classes begin Sunday, January 14, 2018 @ 9:30am. Your investment (per family) is $109. Sign up online here: Financial Peace University or call Stewardship Chairman/TLS parent Adam Smith at 414-254-6444.

BIBLE INFORMATION CLASS LAUNCHING 1/17...

A new session of Trinity’s Bible Information Class is starting Wednesday, January 17, from 7-8:30 pm in the church conference room and you’re invited. It’s free, fun, biblically informative, and free child care is even offered. One night a week, ask questions, receive Bible-based answers to help you better understand the main teachings of the Bible shared in only 12 weeks. While this class is designed for new people interested in what our church/school teaches, any member is welcomed to join.

To register or for more info, contact Pastor Oelhafen 262-442-8568 or go to www.trinitywels.com/bic to sign up. Begin the new year with a resolution to stay close to God and bring God’s love to someone else.

NEW WINTER SESSION OF GROWTH GROUPS LAUNCHING...

A new Trinity favorite is Growth Groups, launching for five weeks starting the week of January 22-28. Last week, Trinity members addressed our congregation encouraging us to participate - and with 85+ signed up, this is the MOST people who've signed up at this point. But spots are still open! This fun, social Bible study meets primarily in member homes and is based on the weekend Trinity sermon. Organized by age groups, get to know new friends as you grow in Christian faith. It’s also the primary way we welcome our newest members. Over 200+ Trinity members have already participated. To get your preferred date, sign up NOW at http://bit.ly/TGG18January Have any questions?
