Faith and Authority: A Biblical Perspective on Spiritual Warfare
Jesus said to His disciples, “I give to you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” What are these keys Jesus spoke of and how do I put them to use in my life? In Faith and Authority, learn what it means to walk in your God-given authority, the power of God’s word in your mouth, and the strength that comes to a life surrendered to God.

It’s hard enough to train kids to behave, but good behavior isn’t what Jesus calls for in the Bible. He wants hearts and souls that are shaped in vibrant faith and love toward God and others. How can parents cultivate this in their children? Spiritual Parenting will empower parents to be the primary nurturers of your children's faith and teaches you how to create a home environment God can use to work in your children's lives. Families will be transformed as they learn how to create space for God-encounters in everyday life.
LEADER: Pastor Cayla Greene
SESSION REQUIREMENT: Spiritual Parenting Book (Purchase at www.alibris.com or www.amazon.com)
Men’s Campfire Nights
How do I live as a man of God in today’s culture? How do I overcome sin, my past, and anger? How can I be the husband and father that God has called me to be? There is a cry from men from all walks of life to know what real manhood looks like. Our culture has tried to paint an image of manhood that falls short and leaves men frustrated and confused. Join us where manhood started, in nature (around a campfire), as we tackle the tough topics that men face today.
LEADERS: Don Perdue and Dale Whitt
GriefShare, Part 2
If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. Whether you have recently experienced the death of a loved one or have been processing the loss of someone for years, Grief Share will help you face these challenges and move towards rebuilding your life. Grief Share does this through opportunities for personal study and reflection, counsel from grief and recovery experts, and guided group discussion to help you process grief and feel less isolated in your journey.
LEADER: Carol Perdue, Shirley Swindle, Mike Owens, and Mary Eaker
