Week #3 – July 4 – 10, 2020
“The Overflow Principle – Growing in the Love of God”
Steve Thomason
If you are a follower of Jesus then you’ve probably asked yourself things like, “What am I supposed to do?” “How am I supposed to live my life?” Jesus gives us an answer in John 15 where he teaches on the Vine and the Branches. The key is to understand that we cannot love God and love others on our own strength. It’s not about doing something or working really hard. It is about believing and opening up to God’s love. Using a holistic approach to healthy discipleship, Steve will lead us into an in-depth study of opening ourselves up to God’s love — Mind, Spirit, Body, World and Church.

Week #4 – July 11 – 17, 2020
“The Psalms as Tools for Prayer”
Kathryn Schifferdecker
The Psalms explore the depths and the heights of human existence. They thus have been used for thousands of years by both synagogue and church in liturgy and song. We will explore how the Psalms can guide our own prayers in the midst of life, with all its sorrows, longings, joys, and thanksgivings. We will discuss how these ancient prayers can inform our own lives of faith and become for us a living Word of God.

Week #5 – July 18 – 24, 2020
“We Are Family”
Brian & Michelle Spahr
God wants relationship with us. That has always been true. You can see it in the creation story in Genesis all the way through the end of the Bible in Revelation. There are several types of relationships – friendships, business associates, acquaintances… but none of these really capture what God is after. Instead, God thinks of and treats us as family. So what might it look like to treat ourselves fully as members of the family of God. Join us as we explore together, through scripture, stories and experiences.

Week #6 – July 25 – 31, 2020
“Ready for Vision”
Nate & Joy Hoff
Exploring and applying 5 Kinds of Gifts God uses to help us see more clearly: WORD, PRAYER, COMMUNITY, SABBATH and SPIRITUAL GIFTS.
