WILL YOUR TAXES AFFECT YOUR RETIREMENT?

WILL YOUR TAXES AFFECT YOUR RETIREMENT?
Strategies to help you work toward a lower tax bracket in retirement. When you retire, you leave behind many things— the daily grind, the
commute to work, and maybe even your previous home. However, one thing that will always remain is a tax bill. Income taxes are different for the various retirement investments you may have. It’s critical to have a solid understanding of the tax status of your investments so you can make informed decisions and avoid paying more than your fair share.

DROP IN TO DISCOVERING LIFE!

EVERYONE WELCOME! DROP IN ANY TIME, FOR ONE OR ALL SESSIONS!

Discovering Life Part 2: Practices of a Maturing Disciple will begin on Sunday, February 2nd.

In addition to people who have recently completed Part 1, the class is open to those who may have previously attended Part 2 but maybe missed a session(s).We will be announcing each week what the next week’s topic will be so people can “drop-in” on the classes they are interested in or may have missed previously. Also, if someone was unable to yet complete Part 1 but wants to attend Part 2, they are welcome to do so. Pt 1/Pt 2 does not need to be taken in order.

This 13-session class teaches and reinforces the basic disciplines of spiritual growth in the life of a follower of Jesus Christ. You will learn how to start and maintain habits that are fundamental in pressing on towards spiritual maturity; discover how you were gifted and created to further God’s Kingdom; how you can live evangelistically; and gain clarity and understanding of our Gospel mission.

 

The topic for Sunday, February 2nd is:

  • OVERVIEW OF THE BIBLE – We will be introducing some basics about the Bible (who wrote the Bible, it’s central message, the makeup of the Bible, and how reliable it is). We hope you will join us in learning about what is so amazing about the Bible.
