Parenting Class: Guiding Your Kids to be Wise in a Digital World

This class will help equip you to engage in meaningful conversation, offer practical tips to make wise decisions about the computer, and overall, how to make wise decisions in a digital age. Join us as we learn together how to raise godly kids in a media-driven world. Study Guide, $15
Living as a Christian in a Post-Christian America
Robert Suarez – Portable 29
In light of recent culture wars, and the rising number of Americans identifying as non-religious in recent Pew and Barna studies, the United States has shifted toward secularity. It is fundamentally rejecting Christianity as its dominant worldview. What will a post-Christian America look like? How do people insulate themselves enough to survive the influences and societal pressure of living in a highly secular context, while balancing their witness in a healthy and contextualized way? What options do churches have moving forward in a post-Christian setting? This eight-week course will discuss these questions in light of various topics: secularism, atheism, pluralism, dystopia, totalitarianism, Marxism, Critical Race Theory (CRT), Christian nationalism, persecution, apologetics, and missiology.

Moms, we see you! We all share common struggles, and each season of motherhood holds new opportunities and challenges. We want to embrace moms in every season of momming, to make real connections and friendships, while growing in their relationship with God in a safe and supportive environment. There is joy and victory in surrendering our struggles to Jesus and asking Him for the power to keep going!
