God made you, and yet as we look around we are all different in personalities and interests. But now there are some amazing tools to help us better understand the person God created. The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In this group, we will look at practical, comprehensive ways of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with our life with Christ for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God.

Take hold of hope, beauty, and life in a hurting world. Maybe you’ve been whiplashed by an unexpected crisis. Or fear has gripped you, causing you to bury your dreams. Perhaps a sad ending has filled you with loss or hopelessness and made your faith waver. Don’t despair! God means for us to have JOY–a joy from Him that is defiant in the face of this broken world.  
 
 



 




 
The Book of Ephesians (Led by Bill Cole)

Location: in the church -
Parlor

Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well—we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world. 
 

 














 

 PARENT 2 PARENT (Led by Rebecca Bowles)

Meeting Dates: Wednesdays 6-7:30 PM (Feb 6, 20; March 6, 20)
Location: in the church -
Parlor
Kickoff Date & Audience:   (All Adults Welcome) - Childcare Available  


Let's be honest, none of us really know what we're doing raising our little humans. We look at everyone else and assume that's what we'll have, the good and the bad. Reality is, each parent and child is unique in who God has designed them to be which makes it nearly impossible to predict any situation at any given time. This group is designed not only as a way for us to grow in our spiritual walk as parents but as a support group for the times (and there will be many!) that we hit bumps and get bruises, both literally and figuratively, with our kids and the impact on the rest of our lives. Let's enjoy learning, laughing and crying together as we grow together in this group.
