Gospel in Life:  Grace Changes Everything

Join author Timothy Keller in a video-based study of the gospel and how to live it out in everyday life.  Be challenged to connect what we read in the Bible with how we live in our city, our church, and with our neighbors.  From studying the city, our home now in the world that is, to the eternal city, our heavenly home in the world that is to come, we will learn how the gospel can change our hearts, our communities, and our lives in this world today.

Facilitators:  Heather Malkinson and Ute Staus

The Magnificent Obsession:  Embracing the God-Filled Life

Through the strong biblical teaching of Anne Graham Lotz and engagement with Scripture at home, we will examine the life of Abraham, discover what brought him into relationship with God, how we can follow his example, and how to know God as our personal friend.  Come nurture this magnificent obsession to know God, and make him known.

Facilitators:  Carla Olsen Draper and Julie Lee

Raising Kids for True Greatness

While we all want the best for our kids, Dr. Tim Kimmel suggests we aim our kids at greatness. ¬†True greatness is an internal evidence of attitudes and a heart known for humility, compassion, graciousness, and enthusiasm. ¬†Kimmel identifies three critical and life-changing decisions that will make the difference: ¬†preparing your child to wisely choose their mission, their mate, and their master. ¬†This video-based series (Part 3 of Kimmel’s Grace-Based Parenting) helps parents guide their children toward rich lives of eternal value and significance.

Facilitators:  Andrea Christensen and Stacey Odlund

Trusting God

Learning to really trust God can be one of the hardest disciplines we experience as followers of Christ. ¬†Author Jerry Bridges struggled to understand God’s sovereignty during a time of adversity, and shares three key things he learned: ¬†God is completely sovereign; God is infinite in wisdom; and God is perfect in love. ¬†As you gain knowledge of who God is, you will find yourself trusting him more completely–even when life hurts.

Facilitators:  Karen Thomas, Jen Dormer, and Leone Thomas
