Single & Parenting

Room 202 Led by Melinda Lowder

Wednesday Evenings

At a Single & Parenting group, you’ll participate in video seminars that explain how to:

  • Wisely encourage your kids to obey
  • Help your hurting child
  • Eliminate debt
  • Deal with verbal onslaughts
  • Figure out what your emotions are telling you

Plus, you’ll develop meaningful friendships with other single parents, who, like you, are tired of hectic mornings and chaotic evenings, the kids fighting, and a never-ending to-do list.

Take the guesswork out of parenting alone.

The Art of Parenting

Room 204 Led by Jim & Barbara Lowder

Over the years, we have found that life change happens best in community. With that in mind, we created FamilyLife’s Art of Parenting™ Small Group Series. This 8-session, video-based study is designed to not only help parents find new ways to integrate faith into everyday parenting moments, but also to create an environment where moms and dads can shoulder burdens together, celebrate breakthroughs, and relate to one another’s day to day parenting journey.

 

* This study offers a participants guide that is $12. It also offers the book, "The Art of Parenting" by Dennis Rainey available for purchase for $15. Payment due on the first night of class. 

The Book of Judges

Room 102 Led by Adam Hatley

Wednesday Evenings
September 11 - December 11  |  6:00pm

The book of Judges cracks a window into depths of the human soul. Watch a nation struggle with its identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arise, who seem to have the potential to save Israel. But in the end, each proves to be a broken savior that cannot deliver.
In this series, pastor and author J.D. Greear wades into the book of Judges to shine a light onto the muddy waters of human rebellion. The stories and truths within are not just archaic tales with no relevance for us today. Rather, J.D. works through each chapter unpacking the truth of God’s grace in the midst of human wickedness, and shows how only the divine can redeem the fallen.

The Book of 1st Corinthians (Women's Study)

Room 101 Led by JoAnne Burleson & Mildred Russell

Wednesday Evenings
September 11 - December 11  |  6:00pm

Christianity calls us to sacrifice instead of living for oneself. We have to choose one or the other—we can't do both. The Christians in Corinth tried to live the Christian life in a worldly way. Paul wrote the letter of 1 Corinthians to a divided and self-centered people to remind them to follow Jesus and only Jesus.
In this 12-part series, author and speaker Jennie Allen walks into the messy lives of the Corinthians and takes us through Paul’s words to the conflicted church. We'll see how the truth of the gospel and the Spirit of God can empower us to choose to follow Jesus every day of our lives.

 

* This study offers a participants guide that is $25. You are not required to purchase it to take the class. Reduced prices can be requested if you cannot afford it. 

It's Not Supposed to Be This Way (Women's Study)

Room 101 Led by Pam Knighten

THIS STUDY IS ON SUNDAY AFTERNOONS
September 22 - November 3  |  4:30pm

Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? Bible teacher Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands daily disappointments and life-altering loss. By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.

With solid truth, vulnerability and honest humor, Lysa will help you:

  • Find peace and hope for the future when you feel like your life is not what you expected.
  • Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
  • Train yourself to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so you can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.
  • Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give you more than you can handle.
  • Shift your suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing you.
  • Know how to encourage a friend and help them navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.

* This study offers a participant guide that costs $11. It also offers the book, "It's Not Supposed to Be This Way" for $12. Please indicate when you register if you want either book. Payment will be collected at the first class.
