Jesus uses money as a tool to reveal our true priorities. Central to our faith is the fact that God created everything and it ultimately belongs to Him. We are stewards (or managers) of God's resources-this includes our money. Stewardship isn't just an aspect of the Christian life; it is the whole of the Christian life.
In the Book of Acts, the early church had an encounter with the Person of the Holy Spirit that changed their lives forever. This Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowered them to build the Kingdom of God in ways they could never have done on their own. We believe this same baptism is available to believers today. You may ask: What exactly is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit? How do I ask for it? How do I know I've received it? Join us as we discuss this wonderful gift from God, and explore Scripture to answer pressing questions.
Psalm 23:4a "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death" Perhaps not the most appealing subject, but one we all experience. In fact, suffering may be one of the few guarantees you have in life - it will come. Why does it come? How should I respond when it comes? What hope do we have? What is God going to do about it? All good questions! We will look at how the Bible can equip us to walk through it and help others walk through it.
If you have the slightest connection or passion for missions - whether to go or send others to go - this session is for you! Through biblical texts and modern day testimonies, you will walk away from our time together full of faith that God fulfills His promises and His name will be made great among the nations!
If you are in a serious relationship, want to be in a serious relationship, or are trying to figure out what went wrong in your previous serious relationship, this breakout session is for you. We will explore, time permitting, TEN areas of concern for every couple. Don't miss out on a great future.
What comes to mind when you think about yourself? Kindness? Love? Acceptance? Shame? Resentment? Condemnation? The Lord has created us uniquely and in His image, but all too often our negative views of ourselves and our pasts keep us from seeing ourselves the way God does. During this breakout we will take time to process how we see ourselves, how God sees us, and why those two often don't line up. Our prayer is that God would bring breakthrough from shame, self-hatred, and unforgiveness into the realization of who the real you is in Jesus.
Changing life seasons can be difficult, especially graduating from college after you've been well-connected in a community of faith. Finding a church, navigating unmet expectations, and establishing new community where you can be discipled and disciple others are just some of the challenges graduates face. Join us as we discuss how to transition well and live life on a mission.
