WHAT WE'RE TEACHING

During our Sunday Gathering (5:00-7:00 PM)...

A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE BOOK OF JAMES ON LOVING OTHERS


SERIES OVERVIEW:

When Jesus was on earth, he had a lot to say about love, but not everyone loved him. Instead, Jesus’ opponents hated him, attacked him, and saw him as extreme — dangerous — revolutionary — a radical. And they had a point! The things Jesus taught about loving God and loving others challenged the status quo and changed the world forever. That’s pretty radical. In this 4-week series from the book of James, we’ll look at four ways Jesus invites us to love according to his revolutionary example. These ideas might seem simple, but when we choose to listen more than we speak, refuse to play favorites, watch our words, and fight for peace, we’ll see just how radical Jesus’ teachings really are.

TIP OF THE MONTH

Have you ever found yourself feeling frustrated because your teenager doesn’t consistently seem to open up with you in conversation? Having conversations with teenagers can be complicated. The structure that leads to a great conversation one day may be a complete dud the next. There is no one solution that will work every time. . . but there are some really helpful tips that are worth trying this week.

RESOURCE OF THE MONTH

Parenting is complicated. The lessons we teach (and lesons we learn) are not always what we expect. There are many resources that discuss how parents change their children, but SACRED PARENTING turns the tables to talk about how God uses children to change their parents.
