Essential Keys to Healthy Relationships
Led by Sarah Springer, Leadership Residency Director & Organizational Development
April 4 – April 23
We all can agree that relationships are complex—whether with family, friends, a spouse, co-workers or strangers. In this workshop, we will break down some basic challenges in relationships and work through practical solutions, so you can find increased joy, peace and connection with others. Each week will have a teaching component, table discussion and personal reflection activity. Topics include: Give and Take, Listening and Asking Good Questions, Believing the Best, Embracing Needs, and more. This is a great step to take to deepen your relationships with others.
The Sermon on the Mount
What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? Matthew’s gospel opens with three chapters containing Jesus’ longest recorded message – a sermon given to His disciples early in His ministry to articulate what the life of a Christ-follower would look like. It was a message intended to turn upside down every expectation His closest followers might have. Both practical and profound, the sermon asks of us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? What is the nature of true righteousness?
In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right – a study on blessedness, a reflection on the Lord’s Prayer, a meditation on lilies of the field. But what if we navigated these three chapters as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification? This 9-week study led by Jen Wilkin does just that. Seat yourself on a mountainside to learn at the feet of Jesus. Ask for ears to hear and a heart to respond to the teaching of our King.

2 Samuel / 1 Chronicles – The Life of David – A Man After God’s Own Heart – Precept Upon Precept
January 10 – April 30
Arguably, King David was the most famous, most beloved character in the Old Testament. As a type of Christ, a beloved hero and leader, a notorious sinner, and a musician, he captured the heart of his people. Most important is the fact that he was a man after God’s heart, a faithful and fearless follower of his God. In the chaos and unpredictability of our current times, join us in studying and emulating this faithful man of God in the Books of 1st and 2nd Samuel.
