Joseph in the Old Testament

 The realities of pain and suffering are often far
greater than we could have imagined. And even though God has promised to work all
things together for good, sometimes it can seem as if that's never going to happen.
Using the book, God's Mysterious Ways, by Gary Inrig, this class walks through the OT
story of Joseph, offering fresh perspectives on one of the most insightful examples of
God's divine care. Join us for an in-depth study of the Story of Joseph

Living Your Strengths

We are fed the idea in our culture that to be acceptable we need to be well-rounded.  Though that is the prevailing notion, a closer look shows how untrue it actually is.  People who are really effective and really excited about life are generally those who have discovered what they do best and have found great ways to do it.  That is the idea of the Living Your Strengths journey. Visit the Living Your Strengths page for more detailed information.

 

Contact Sue von Fange to express interest. 

 

Let Your Life Speak

Participating in Living Your Strengths makes people hungry to know— what are the good works God prepared beforehand for me to do? Am I doing them? What would my life be like if I found them, and if I did them?

Kathy Reither designed and facilitates this seven-week class to help Living Your Strengths “graduates” explore these questions. This class is discussion-based and is designed as a group process, like Living Your Strengths. For more information, visit the Let Your Life Speak web page.
