June 18
Starting from Scratch
Jan Loyd

Are you trying to earn something more with God by fulfilling a Christian “to-do” list? Are you struggling to experience communion With Christ day-by-day? We’ll explore Christ’s amazing invitation to focus on Him and experience rest and communion with Him.

June 25
Scripture Meditation
Sue Brixey

One of the best ways to slow down and spend time with our Father is to practice the spiritual discipline of meditating on God’s Word. It takes time and intention, but one that brings great benefit to the soul. Let’s go on a journey together and discover just one simple way to better know our God.

Welcoming the Stranger

Pam Everly

This discipline of engagement is more than greeting new people at church or practicing hospitality. Whether you’re an extrovert or an introvert, this workshop can help you understand how to recognize and relate to the strangers God places in our life.

July 9
Silence and Solitude
Sulu Farmer

Do you long for a closer walk with God? Do you sometimes want to escape from our noisy, wordy, pressure-filled world? Come hear how to be refreshed and renewed by practicing the disciplines of silence and solitude.

July 16
Discipleship - Carolyn Armstrong

Someone has said that you can’t teach others what you don’t know yourself. In this session we’ll examine four spiritual disciplines (no, discipline is not the same as legalism) that will move us along in our desire to “know Christ and to make Him known.”

Connecting with Jesus through Art - Suzanne McNeil
Take a closer look at Jesus through the beautiful medium of art accompanied by guided scripture meditation. Each piece of art deals with personal interactions it he Bible between Jesus and others. You will be encouraged to linger over the thoughts that the art evokes in you and take them to God in prayer.

July 23
Confession, Self-Examination, Humility
Tina Knowles

In this session we will explore ways to draw closer to God through reflection, self-examination, and confession as we spend time in His word. As a result we’ll also hope to have a renewed appreciation for His amazing love, mercy and grace.

Kathe Bricker

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Come and explore various ways to connect with God in prayer.
