THE BEST IS YET TO COME

School, relationships, sports, and Instagram!  Even as God’s sacred people, it can be hard to keep our eyes on eternity. Come and see what Jesus has in store for you on this side of heaven. Oh, we’ll have Oreos too!

SACRED SPACE

Time spent with God is my favorite! Singing to Him, exploring the Bible, hearing Him speak to me through His words,  and another absolute favorite is prayer!!! What ways do you like to pray? I want to learn from you. Lets share some time together & grow in our prayer stories.

I HOPE YOU HAVE A SPIRITUAL STROKE

Everyone deserves a second chance but what about a 5th chance? Let’s talk about what it really means to be: people who forgive, and friends who give second chances. Because if we don’t treat them the same way we used to, have we really forgiven them?

SACRED COWS AND DIRTY BIRDS

2 Corinthians 4:1-15, We will be looking at the looseness within which the world lives and the over-tight structures that sometimes defines church expectation (membership and experience of church). The goal is to find a middle ground and be excited about it: to kill some cows and wash off some birds (figuratively speaking of course).

RIVALS: SONQUEST CHALLENGE

Coke and Pepsi.  Gryffindor and Slytherin.  Florida and Florida State.   These rivalries were born on the basis of comparison.  How do we measure up?  How do we compare?  And why are we wasting our time asking these questions of ourselves?  Let’s see what God has to say about comparison.  We might just find that we’re sacred.

"A DAY IN THE LIFE OF JOE / JANE CHRISTIAN"

What would our day look like if we intentionally implemented our faith daily? This is the question we hope to answer in this interactive class that will focus on how Christianity is played out at home, school, and at work or extracurricular activities. Warning: There may be roleplaying involved!

BEAUTIFUL SACRED ACCIDENTS

Gallium is the chemical element Ga and has similar properties of other metals like aluminum. Gallium is uniquely different in that it melts at such low temperatures. In this encounter experience, you will be able to melt gallium in your own hand witnessing just how malleable gallium is. Discussion to follow of just how important it is to be malleable with our God. Some plans can be counterproductive of God’s leading if it keeps us from depending on Him. In this class, we will explore how we can leave room for God to have His way in us.

THE HEART OF TAFITI: WHEN THE SACRED BECOMES BROKEN

We all have sacred things in our lives. And sometimes, those things get broken. Using (in Corey’s opinion) the best Disney movie of all time, we will talk about why it is so easy to allow hurt to define our lives and why it is so important to find our true identity in the One who heals the hurt.

ADULT RESOURCE CLASS - Raising a Generation of Faith (2 Separate Sessions)

Raising a Generation of Faith (2 SESSIONS)

There are a lot of discussions that can be had about teens, culture, families, and youth ministry philosophies. However, there is a bottom line question that we all must answer, “What does it look like for parents, youth ministers, youth volunteers to grow students with a vibrant and lasting faith in today’s culture?”

Session 2 will include a Q & A.
