Mama Bear Apologetics | W

Led by Courtney Adams

Mama Bear Apologetics is the book you’ve been looking for. This mom-to-mom guide will equip you to teach your kids how to form their own biblical beliefs about what is true and what is false. Through transparent life stories and clear, practical applications—including prayer strategies—this band of Mama Bears offers you tools to train yourself, so you can turn around and train your kids.

Support Group: Imitating the Incarnation of Christ: Weeping with Those Who Weep | C

Led by Jennings and Helga Riley
Begins Wednesday, August 17
10 weeks |  6:30 pm | Room 215


This group is designed to teach empathy skills and distinguish sympathy from empathy. We will learn how to help loved ones who are going through hard times by perspective taking and communicating that perspective in a loving manner. These practices can help us support people experiencing almost any struggle including grief, anxiety, depression, addiction, fear, loneliness, and interpersonal conflict. Accordingly, empathy is one of the most important tools we can use to help ourselves heal and help others heal. Sympathy in contrast fuels shame. When people hurt, they are rarely receptive to advice or problem solving. Instead, they need someone who feels with them and understands their pain. Join us in learning empathy, boundaries, differences in personality styles, conflict management, and emotional intelligence. Learn the 4 steps of empathy and develop a wonderful tool for maintaining and building healthy supportive relationships.

Jonah: The Sovereignty of God in the Life of His Prophet | C

From childhood, the story of Jonah being swallowed by the great fish has captivated our imaginations. However, the book of Jonah is not about the prophet, Jonah, nor is it about the fish. The book of Jonah is about the sovereignty of God and the ways in which He works among people. Come join us for an "adult" look at this familiar story.
