Leaders: Victor Burbulys & Doug Jamieson

Thursdays, 1pm at Hope La Grange, starting February 2nd

YAH will be doing a 5 session study entitled: When God Doesn't Fix it by Laura Story. 

In the midst of tragedy, we just want everything to return to "normal" or the way it used to be. But is it possible that good things can come out of broken dreams? Can we learn to walk in God's plans instead of our own? Join us and let's together learn how to trust our good, good Lord, even when circumstances are not to our own liking. We will meet for 5 consecutive Thursdays starting February 2, 1-3 PM, at Church. Light refreshments will be served.  Contact Victor at 630-469-2759 or roseandvic@sbcglobal.net.  Doug at 708-482-8713 or jami73s@yahoo.com.
