Primetimers Ministries

PrimeTimers Sunday Class @ 9:20am in W129/130. Join us as we continue to study: "Heaven: What's Next?"

Heaven: What's Next? What will heaven be like? Many people imagine it as one long worship service where we will all be gathered around God's throne. We will indeed worship our great God before His throne, but heaven will include many other things, places, and activities. In fact, the Bible gives us a surprising amount of detail about where we will spend eternity, and what it will be like for us. This exciting study is taught by Pastor Rick Moe.

Events: Visit goldenhills.org/connect/senior-adults for more info--11/4 Fallon House Theatre/White Christmas.

UPCOMING TRIPS/SOCIALS:

Please register online at goldenhills.org by 11/12. Our Converge PacWest Women's Conference 2018 speaker is Andrea Coli. She will be speaking on, "Following: A Life Where Jesus Leads." Andrea has been described as "having the ability to transform a room into a fun atmosphere while tempering it with the truth of God's Word." She uses her background in improv comedy and her biblical knowledge to inspire others to discover God's unique call for their lives. Andrea is always on the lookout for God's truth in everyday places. When you listen to her, you might find yourself laughing, crying, or a little bit of both. We trust that, more than anything, you will have heard from the Lord afresh and will respond to His leading. Join us for a wonderful weekend of God's Word and the company of other women. This conference is held at The Hyatt Regency Resort in Monterey, CA.
