The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind

Beginning Tuesday, September 10 - Tuesday, October 29, 8 classes

6:30 pm Abiding Place Cafe

Co-led by Pastor Charlie and Pastor Laurie Goessler

Many Christians believe in miracles, but they are not accessing the supernatural as a normal way of life. Is this you? Are you ready to experience the miraculous lifestyle that Jesus made available to you because of the Cross?

In this dynamic curriculum, Pastor Bill Johnson delivers eight powerful and practical teaching sessions, revealing how you were designed to bring heaven to earth and how it all begins with your thought life.

Learn how to enjoy complete forgiveness from sin, let go of guilt, access the open heaven over your life, and position yourself for future breakthrough. Your access to a lifestyle of signs, wonders, and miracles starts by changing the way you think.

This eight-week class will be co-led by Pastor Charlie and Pastor Laurie Goessler. Our desire is that every class would be a Holy Spirit encountered meeting. You are strongly encouraged to purchase the book and the study guide.

We all want to be more at peace, to be happier and healthier, but we often don’t know how to go about it. Everything we try seems to fall short of true change. Dr. Caroline Leaf helps you apply the science and wisdom of Switch On Your Brain to your daily life so you can detox your thinking and experience improved happiness and health.

Each of the keys in the Switch On Your Brain Workbook pairs science with Scripture, asking penetrating questions in order to guide you in understanding the impact of your thought life on your brain, body and lifestyle. We recommend strongly purchasing the workbook for this class, and we will make the book available as well. Purchase the workbook and/or book below using the drop down menu, which will also register you for the class.
