Sunday Nights Classes

Finding Contentment - Embracing the Difference Between Needs and Desires
To experience inner peace and contentment, we must understand the difference between our God given emotional needs and our many human desires. Without realizing it, we routinely violate this distinction, resulting in such struggles as anxiety, depression, discord, bitterness, and addictions of all kinds. This three week class will give biblical insight, practical tools, and many personal examples to explain how and why we violate the difference between needs and desires and what it takes to find true contentment in God.

Teachers: Gary and Karen Baker
Where: Rockford Portable 3


Parenting
Parenting is a class intended to help us find some anchor points in this challenging adventure of raising kids and teens. The class will focus on categories like Vision, Prayer, Dialogue, Conflict, Boundaries and Third Party Voices. We know there are a thousand different questions and challenges that each of us face as parents, so we hope that these categories will help ground us in what God has called us to as parents and invite us to lean in to Him for the growth that He alone can accomplish. Bring your struggles and questions as we process together with each other and hear biblical wisdom from a variety of different speakers.

Facilitator: Steve High, with various guest speakers
Dates: March 20 - May 5
Where: Rockford Portable 2
