Adult Christian Education News-February 2020

Men’s Group Ministry: 

Has Christianity become little more to you than a series of responsibilities and a list of requirements? Do you feel alone in the depths of your soul? Do you have a sense of your desperate need for God? Do you desire greater intimacy with Him? In his book Radical Reliance: Living 24/7 with God at the Center, Dr. Joseph Stowell reminds you that God wants adoring devotion and complete dependence. When God is at the center of our lives 24/7, this is radical reliance -total trust- and it’s the way God meant it to be. Dr. Stowell traces the history of our human tendency to seek fulfillment in the creation rather than the Creator. Follow the author on the road that will take you home to the God who will completely satisfy, sustain, and secure you as you connect with Him in the right relationship that He intended for you!

Gather with us for coffee and fellowship at 10:15am on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Every man is welcome; just “come and see”!

Please join us for an evening of fellowship and Bible study. 

Christian Living

“Be quick to listen, slow to speak.” (James 1:19) In this noisy, distracting world, it is difficult to truly hear. People talk past each other, eager to be heard but somehow deaf to what is being said. Listening is an essential skill for healthy relationships, both with God and with other people. But it is more than that: listening is a way of life! In his book “The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction”, author Adam McHugh places listening at the heart of our spirituality, our relationships, and our mission in the world. By cultivating a posture of listening, we become more attentive and engaged with those around us, and more able to minister to those in distress. Our lives are qualitatively different -indeed, better- when we become listeners. Heed the call to the listening life, and hear what God is doing in you and the world!

We meet at 10:15am for coffee and fellowship on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Everyone is welcome!

All classes are held in the Taylor Room of Price Hall.
