Tuesday Bible Study

   The Tuesday bible study will be completing the study of the Gospel of Mark with a DVD of the Gospel. We will be showing this on  February 6 and February 13  Even if you were unable to do the study with us feel free to come see the DVD. It is fascinating to see the Gospel come to life.

   On February 20 we will begin with Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. This letter hits home for many of us as we face many of the same struggles the Christians of Corinth faced. Paul offers us solutions on how to live for Christ in a corrupt society. This study will take us through March. Everyone is welcome.

   Join us either Tuesday mornings at 9:15 am at Westview Acres or Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm at Faith.

calling Parents of All Ages! 

Please join Pastor Christine for our 5-week parenting Institute  on Wednesday Nights starting in April (just following Lent) to discuss the book,   “how to raise an adult:   Break Free of the Over parenting trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success.”

  • Do you want to make sure your child is ready to launch at the appropriate time?
  • What strategies can you use to raise children who take responsibility for themselves?

Join us Wednesday nights during BYG and Confirmation from 7:00-8:00pm in the Fireside Room to discuss the excellent book, “How to Raise an Adult:  Break Free of the Over-Parenting trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success,” by Julie Lythcott-Haims.   Haim’s foundational book exposes the harms of helicopter parenting and sets forth an alternate philosophy for raising preteens and teens to self-sufficient young adulthood.  She draws on research, conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a student dean to highlight the ways in which over-parenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large.

While empathizing with the parental hopes and, especially, fears that lead to over helping, Lythcott-Haims offers practical alternative strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success.  This book is relevant to parents of toddlers as well as of twentysomethings–and of special value to parents of teens–this book is a rallying cry for those who wish to ensure that the next generation can take charge of their own lives with competence and confidence.

Time:          Wednesday Nights following Prime Time worship (during

                    confirmation and BYG) starting after  Easter from 7:00 – 8:00pm (5
