CONNECT GROUP | The Path Between us

Kendell Smith | Room 207

Most of us have no idea how others see or process their experiences. And that can make relationships hard, whether with intimate partners, with friends, or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in others—and in ourselves. This book from Suzanne Stabile on the nine Enneagram types and how they behave and experience relationships will guide readers into deeper insights about themselves, their types, and others' personalities so that they can have healthier, more life-giving relationships. Books and study guides will be available for purchase. All women are welcome to join this group!

Starting September 4th.


Women Walking With Jesus | Heaven

Vickie Taylor | Rm 105

We all have questions about what heaven will be like. Will it be boring? Do people really turn into angels? Will I have to learn how to play a harp? Does God really have a room ready for me in a mansion? Author Randy Alcorn helps answer some of these questions by sharing from his extensive research on the topic--all from a biblical perspective. His writing will surprise and stretch us beyond what we’ve imagined heaven to be like. Heaven will help readers live for eternity while fully engaging while here on earth. Vickie will also pull in research and information about heaven from other sources, so this will be a well-rounded look at something we are sure of but have lots of questions about – eternity! Workbooks will be available for purchase.

Starting September 4th.

Navigating our Digital World

Shonda Ayers | Fireside Room

This two-session workshop will help equip parents with ways to navigate parenting their kids and teens in this digital, tech-savvy world.  The goal is to have great relationships with our kids, yet we have to acknowledge that in today’s world, digital media will be involved in our relationships somehow. Rather than a divider, media can be a common ground where families connect, and we’ll talk about ways to do just that. Discussions will also address questions like -- how can our family create healthy media rituals and routines that fit the pace and flow of our unique schedule? How do we guide our kids and teens toward digital maturity, trusting them to make good decisions and set their own boundaries? And how do we determine what’s a constructive and healthy approach to digital safety for our family?

September 11th & 18th.
