Strength for the Journey: A Study of Hebrews

Have you ever struggled in life? Have you ever experienced persecution? Have you ever felt like you are at the end of your rope and you barely have enough energy to hold on? Many centuries ago, some of the earliest Christians would answer “yes” to all of these questions. Many had left their families, their culture, and their friends to follow Jesus. Years into their new commitment, however, they were beginning to wonder if it was all worth it. Perhaps they should just go back to what was comfortable! In the midst of their struggle, they received a letter of encouragement, reminding them why Jesus mattered. We are privileged to have a copy of that ancient letter today, and it continues to provide us strength for our own journey. Join us for our Sunday morning adult classes this year as we study the letter to the Hebrews. In studying this book together, we believe we will find encouragement and strength to survive and thrive in our walk with Christ.

Getting to the Heart of Parenting—A Video Series with Paul Tripp

Jerrod & Ana Crawford

Moms and dads of kiddos ages 0 to 18, come and join us for this ten-week video and discussion class! Parenting is hard, but there are few things in life that rise to this level of importance. God has chosen parents to be primary instruments in the shaping of a human soul. So often we get it wrong by using power to get our children to behave in certain ways. We establish laws and then play the role of police officer and judge. As Christian author, Paul Tripp, explains, parenting is so much deeper than rules and regulations. A biblical view teaches that parenting is all about the exposure and change of a child's heart. Come and learn how to become an instrument of heart-changing grace in the lives of your children!

Depression: Breaking the Silence

Dr. Seth Cowan & Various Speakers

Followers of Jesus are supposed to be happy, right? Then why do so many of us who love God have such a difficult time finding joy? Depression is a reality in our world. Many of us suffer from depression, and many others have been touched by depression’s effects through a spouse, a child, or a close friend. Instead of keeping depression hidden, we need to be open about its impact on our lives. We need to find help. During this six-week Wednesday night class, Dr. Seth Cowan will present information about depression from his own life experiences as well as from his vast research on the subject. Guest speakers from our area will also offer their expertise to the conversation. If you or someone you love suffers from depression, we invite you to join us as Dr. Seth Cowan, along with area guest speakers, share from life experiences and extensive research. Space is limited to 15 individuals. To enroll, contact Kay Pleasant at (903) 570-7823.

City on a Hill—A Video Series with Matt Chandler

God saves people from all walks of life, but He doesn't just save us. He saves us into a body of believers called the Church. God is using His Church to spread the gospel, as we are called to be the salt and light of the world. To live out this calling, we must allow the gospel to change and shape every aspect of our lives. Join us on Wednesday nights, beginning February 28 as we listen to Matt Chandler discuss the City on a Hill.

Pure Gold was founded over four decades ago by a group of senior adults who enjoyed spending time together. Their main interest was traveling to see fall foliage, hence the name "Pure Gold." Pure Gold is open to anyone age 55 or over. We meet on the third Thursday of the month for dinner and activities. There are other trips and activities scheduled throughout the year as well. Come join us for fun and fellowship.
