Alpha Parenting Children LIVE

Focused on parenting children up to 10 years old, this class will provide a space to meet  and chat with other moms in the community.  Sessions include teaching and facilitated discussions on topics such as building strong foundations, setting boundaries, love in action, and growing a confident child.  This course is helpful for both those who are confident with their parenting skills and those who feel they are struggling.  The Alpha Parenting Children Course is based on a Christian perspective, but is designed for parents with or without a church background—a great class to invite friends and neighbours!

Colossians/Philemon:  Gaining a True Knowledge of Christ So No One Deludes You (Precept Upon Precept)

There are many people claiming to know the truth, saying they are telling the truth, promising that their way is the best way.  But what is the truth?  Is there a true truth that will stand the test of time?  Study Colossians and Philemon with us as we learn God’s truth and how we will use this knowledge to stand against all the false truths that surround us.

Facilitator: Karen Thomas and Leone Thomas

Proven:  Where Christ’s Abundance Meets Our Great Need (Book of John) (Jennie Allen)

You don’t have anything to prove.  Jesus has already proven everything.  Do you sometimes believe that you are not good enough, talented enough, or spiritual enough?  The truth is, we will never be enough, but thankfully, we don’t have to be.  Proven walks us through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how Jesus is enough.  By looking to Jesus, we can take hold of what has already been given to us in Christ, overflow with His abundance, and extend life to others.

Facilitator: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper and Daryl Ginter


The Quest:  An Excursion Toward Intimacy with God (Beth Moore)

Have you ever wanted to sit down with God and ask Him a few questions?  Dialogue with Him?  Respond to Him and be responded to?  Beth Moore’s new study invites you to do just that.  There is no Quest without questions.  A question is an invitation to vulnerability and intimacy, and the Bible does not shy away from such an invite.  Over and over we see the people of God asking questions of their Creator.  We also see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation.  The Quest is a challenge to accept the invitation.  In this study, questions from Scripture lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best.  Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God and to bring your questions before Him.  This in-depth study will find you digging deeper into God’s Word and going deeper in your relationship with Jesus.
