Loving Our Kids On Purpose is a class meant to help you train your children in the way that they should go. It will help you not to just tell your children what they should do because you are the parent and that is why. We as Christian parents need to help your kids to grow up in a way that gives them freedoms and teaches them that they have choices even now as children, and when they get into the world they will have choices to make. These choices can eitehr give them freedom or take their freedom away.
Craving isn't a bad thing, but we must realize God created us to crave so we'd ultimately desire more of Him in our lives. Many of us have misplaced that craving, overindulging in food instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction. In this class we will work through the Made To Crave DVD and book series as well as the Action Plan series. If you're struggling with unhealthy eating habits, Made To Crave will equip you to: 1. Break the "I'll start again Monday cycle" and start feeling good about yourself today. 2. Stop beating yourself up over the numbers on the scale and make peace with the body you've been given. 3. Discover how weight loss struggles aren't a curse but, rather, a blessing in the making. 4. Replace justifications that lead to diet failure with empowering go-to scripts that will lead to victory. 5. Eat healthy without feeling deprived. 6. Reach a healthy weight goal while growing closer to God through the process. The Action Plan series will give us 5 to help us put realistic everyday healthy choices into practice and will encourage you on your journey to healthy living.
God has gone to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about - the story of the Bible, God's great love affair with humanity.

Using the clear, accurate, and easy-to-understand text of the NIV, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel. And like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption.
Through The Bible is a weekly study that is designed to take students through the Bible once every seven years. It is not a book by book study but rather a series of topical studies from various book overviews that provides fresh concepts and studies relevant for today presented in an easy to understand format and down to earth teaching. Keep a notebook handy because we usually have a lot of related Scripture added in for reference material for studies on your own.
Our theme is prayer - answered prayer according to God's will and in His timing. We believe God's word holds the key and when activated by our belief system answers will be advanced, and His will be done. We believe all things are possible when Jesus' name is invoked. We are also studying and applying blessings through prayer and studying scripture. The Wednesday night meeting is called "Walking to Emmaus". In this meeting we use "fire power", which si the Word and all the weapons.
