154424Colossians: The New Old Perfectly Imperfect You
Paul’s letter to the Colossians speaks of a transformation so deep and profound that it can only be described as dying and coming to life again.

Paul’s letter to the Colossians in the first century A.D. may be the most important letter you will ever read! This brief letter has affected many millions of people around the world for many centuries. It speaks of a transformation so deep and profound that it can only be described as dying and coming to life again. In this letter we discover the one in whom all things hold together, the one who transforms us and makes us new—Jesus Christ, the living Son of God—so that we can live for and with God forever.

Includes five inspirational readings that follow each lesson. You will love learning this”discovery” method of Bible Study.  A five lesson series begins 9/25/16   No preparation required.

Friendship Club begins!

OUR FIRST MEETING WILL BE HELD ON MONDAY SEPT. 19th

The purpose of the Friendship program is to nurture the spiritual growth of people with intellectual disabilities in the context of personal and meaningful relationships. Here’s how it works:

  • Sessions often start in a large group with singing, sharing, and prayer.
  • Next, a Bible lesson is shared. This usually includes group participation, often in drama format.
  • This is followed by a time where mentors and friends meet to discuss the Bible lesson and pray together. Often this time includes activities related to the Bible study.
  • Finally, the group gathers again for social time and a closing prayer or song.

Friendship is not a ministry to people who have intellectual/physical disabilities. Rather, it is a ministry with them. We refer to “friends” and “mentors” rather than students and teachers. Mentors often find that they learn as much as their friends and receive more than they give.
