Growth Seminars


Guidance: Knowing the Will of God - Led by Jeff LeDuc

There's a time to pray, a time to consult, a time to gather information, but there is also a time to decide. Sometimes this is forced upon us, and sometimes we must decide and get on with living out our Christian lives and trusting God. Sometimes we're asked to make decisions – even large ones – based on less information or confidence than we'd like. But we need to remember that God is sovereign, in control, and He loves us. He is about the business of spiritual growth and maturity—and sometimes we simply need to make a decision to the best of our ability and trust Him for what happens.


What's the Difference? (World Religions) - Led by Kevin Godin

In this 4 week seminar, we will take a look at 4 of the most common world religions that you will likely encounter in your neighborhoods and work places: Catholicism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witness, and Islam. In our time together, we will learn the core tenants of their belief system, discover the primary differences between these and Christianity, and discuss how you might engage followers of these religions in gospel conversations.

Ministry Tools for the Church Member - Led by David Gibson

Ministry is not only reserved for the professional clergy. Every member in the Body of Christ is called to minister to each other. In fact, a healthy church will operate as every member ministers to the needs of those inside the church. There is also a tremendous door that opens up for presenting the Gospel when believers seek to minister to those outside of the church in their time of need. In this seminar we will take a look at a number of ministry suggestions for caring for the caregiver, hospital visits, bereavement visits, and more.

 

The Gospel at Work & Home - Led by Troy Jackson

"My Father is working until now, and I am working" (John 5:17). Since the beginning, God has been working-creating, pursuing, and redeeming. We are created for work as colaborers with God; whether that work is at home or in the marketplace. We are called to work as heirs in the Kingdom of God - to love our families, neighbors, and enemies. During this study, we will look at the theology of work, calling, and vocation. We will learn how to practice our faith and live the gospel. So that in everything we do, we do for the glory of God (1 Cor. 10:31).
