We will be offering childcare for children up to age 12 we but you will need to register online by September 7th. This is mandatory. We need to know how many children will be coming so we have enough workers. For questions regarding childcare, please contact Thanh Pham at [email protected]
Sisters In Christ includes worship, bible studies, testimonies or ministry speakers, classes (both spiritual and practical) and fellowship every week. This session Karen Stevens will be teaching on "From Overcome to Overcomer". Key verse: 1John 5:4-5 "for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God."

Empowered to Love The Unlovable led by Kirsten Strawn Are you willing to die to have the most amazing life ever? Not a physical death, but dying to your old ways to experience true love. Perhaps you're ready to throw in the towel on your marriage, kick a defiant teenager out of the house, or leave your job due to a difficult co-worker. Have you done everything in your power to love that person who seems to know how to push all your buttons? Do you feel abused, betrayed, deceived, or used? If you're shouting, "No more!" then it's time to stop the old way of doing things and try something new.
For a moment, examine your thoughts. If frustration has turned to hatred, which has turned to hopelessness and despair then the enemy is seeking to decieve, destroy, and distract you from God. These thoughts and feelings are common. Jesus spoke of them, we all struggle with anger and "what ifs" and thinking like would be better if that person was out of your life. But consider that the difficult person in your life is there for a purpose. There's a reson why you work where you do, why that person irritates you, why you married who you did, or why your child isi actinf out and being disrespectful. Just maybe God wants to use that person in your life to give you an abundant life. Come learn nine biblical principles to be EMPOWERED to love the unlovable. No book required.
Made to Crave led by Myrna Harrison Has food become more about frustration than fulfillment? Are you looking for the "want to" in how to make healthy lifestyle changes? Do you have a desire to be healthy and an even deeper desire to have the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen? Do you long to satisfy your deepest desires with God not food? If you answered yes - then join us on this journey as we learn together how to...
Break the Cycle of "I'll start again on Monday," and feel good about yourself today.
