  • Every ordinary life can make an extraordinary difference for the Kingdom of God. Steve Moore, president of Mission Exchange, wrote this: “If you have ever wrestled with questions like ‘Can God use me? Or ‘Could I really make an eternal difference?’ --- and all of us have --- this practical and powerfully illustrated book gives a resounding yes! Dwight Robertson makes a compelling case answering both why and how every believer should get ‘off the sidelines and in the game.’” In this study, you will discover that you are God’s Plan A … and there is no Plan B! There is a cost for the materials: reading book is $13.00 and the study guide is $10.00, if you are a couple, you could share and work together during the week in preparation for the study.

This class will expand conversational ASL skills as well as help grow sign-to-voice skills and develop voice-to-sign skills. This class will use lots of video examples as well as in class practice. The heart behind this class is to help build our sign language skills to communicate with our Deaf friends in all settings and to effectively communicate the Word of God in ASL. As the teacher I am growing and learning with you. Let's encourage each other while we have fun learning more of the Deaf Culture's heart language.
