Disappointments. Shattered dreams. Unforeseen plan/goal changes. They happen to all of us. And sometimes it’s just downright painful.

This unique class is designed for women who are experiencing transition from either a recent move, foreclosure, bankruptcy, financial devastation, job loss, and other circumstances where they have been forced into a situation that was not “their plan.”

When our plans and dreams change beyond our control, we find ourselves in a new place we call “Plan B”.

Come join other women who have experienced a “Plan B” situation – We will come together in an encouraging, supportive weekly class and uncover some powerful, spiritual truths that will clear your head and lighten your heart! This 9-week study will help you move past the feelings of crisis, panic, fear, paralysis, and over-control and begin to see God in your circumstances.

Class begins August 24/25 and is offered Wednesday AM 9:15-11:15 or Thursday PM 6:30-8:30 Online registration at Click on Ministries/Womens/Plan B $20 fee includes book & all materials

9/11 service planned

A special recognition and memorial service to honor those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, as well as members of the armed forces who have fallen in the war against terrorism, is held at 7 p.m., Sept. 11 at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church, 9248 E. Riggs Rd. The event, organized by Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation and the Sun Lakes United Methodist Church, features the choirs from both organizations and inspirational messages from Rabbi Irwin Wiener, Rev. Jim O’Neal and Rev. Don Bommarito. “The value of coming together for an occasion such as this is not only to remember, but to commemorate the lives that we lost,” says Wiener, who with O’Neal invites active members of the military and their families, as well as local fi rst responders, to attend.
