Co-Ed

Conflicts! They can be big or small, long-standing or short-lived, anticipated or spontaneous. But they are certain to happen in life.

Join us this summer for an 8-session series on Resolving Everyday Conflict from Peacemaker Ministries. This video-based series is Biblically based and will be offered in a live, online format.

In this 8 week study you will learn to:

Parenting is hard. Yes, we love our kids, but they know how to misbehave and push our buttons. We want to raise them to love and obey God, but we can’t even get them to obey us!  Here’s the good news: we can learn to respond to our kids with love, firm boundaries, and grace-based discipline, even when their behavior lights our fuse.

In this study you will learn how to:

  • Stay calm, even when staring down toddlers
  • Set rules based on God’s priorities - not yours
  • Apply consequences that really work

Facilitator:  Twila Simmons-Walker

Day / Time:  Saturdays (begins June 6), 6:00pm

Resources: 

1. Grace Based Discipline by Karis Kimmel Murray

This is a 12-week study related to Jerry Bridges' classic book, The Pursuit of Holiness.

“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do?and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

Facilitators:  Larry & An Heimann

Day / Time:  Thursdays (begins June 4), 8:00pm

Resource:  The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges  [includes study guide]

The Freedom in Christ course is for every Christian. It is designed to help you break through to a greater level of spiritual maturity, uncover any areas of deception holding you back, resolve personal and spiritual conflicts, and learn strategies to renew your mind and break free from negative thinking and unhelpful patterns of behavior.

The course does not focus on how to behave but on how to believe. It will help you grasp the amazing truth of your new identity in Christ, teach you to uncover and resist the enemy’s deception, and help you move on. It’s not a “quick fix” but it’s likely to revolutionize your Christian life.
