DIABETES PREVENTION CLASSWe are partnering with the YMCA to host a class for people at high-risk of diabetes!  It starts January 21 at 1:00PM.  WHY?  13% of people over age 20 in Muskegon County are diabetic.  Many more don’t even know they are at risk of becoming diabetic where your life will dramatically change, especially your insurance rates.  For many, this can be prevented.  Contact Pastor Matt or the Muskegon YMCA at for more information about this class.
