Finding Purpose When Life Doesn't Make Sense
Instructor: Rick Corliss
Class begins September 11, runs for 8 weeks
You think you make good life decisions. You always want those decisions to align with God's road map for your life. Yet, you are encountering unexpected detours & distractions as everyday life happens. Did you miss something? Let’s look at Joseph and see how God diverted Joseph’s life, tested his resolve, delayed his desires, and tried his faith through hardships, adversity and suffering. We will discover Joseph’s work ethic, choices under pressure, his burden for his nation, his heart faith, and his legacy. God devoted 14 chapters of Genesis for Joseph’s story to make sure we know He has our plan in place and assure us He is walking with us.

Habits of the Household
Instructors: Carly Taylor
Class begins September 11, runs for 8 weeks
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, God parent, or parent in Christ, we invite you to join this session to read and discuss Habits of the Household by Justin Whitmel Earley. Together, we might discover meaning in the daily chaos of raising children and learn to practice the story of God in our everyday rhythms. From the author: “If you’re anything like me, you find your days infiltrated by chaos. The daily chaos of dishes and dusting, laundry and brushing teeth. With two young kids, just the task of supplying snacks seems like a full time job in and of itself right now. And each new stage brings new challenges and chaos. I love the satisfaction of crossing these tasks off my list. But what if there is more to them than just another item to check? What if there was formative power in these tasks? What if, by leaning in, these tasks could form me into the likeness of Christ and provide space for my family to encounter Him?”
