"The Critical Relationship" by Tim Lozier

Do you feel like something is missing in your spiritual life? So many Christians talk of a relationship with God but do you actually know what that relationship looks like on a daily basis when no one is looking? It’s so easy to put on a front and pretend that you are spiritual, religious and an all-around good citizen, but when no one is looking you are the exact opposite. The Critical Relationship workshop is based off of the brand new book “The Critical Relationship, Our Relationship with God behind Closed Doors” and will help you discover what a personal, intimate, practical, genuine and daily relationship with God looks like from the beginning of time, to the present, and beyond. In this workshop you will learn important information and gain practical tools to help you grow deeper in your critical relationship with the Almighty God.

"What's So Amazing About Faith?" by Debbie Fero

Can you picture Jesus being amazed at anything? As recorded in the gospels, He was amazed twice and both times it involved faith. Once He was amazed because of a lack of faith and another time because of a person who had great faith. In this workshop we'll explore in a fun and creative way, some basic principles about faith. We'll start with a definition of faith and a demonstration of how we receive it. Then we'll discover things like how do we get more faith, how can we truly walk by faith and what obstacles sometimes get in the way of our faith journey. Let's amaze Jesus with our mountain-moving, "All In" faith.

"Why Can't We Be Friends?" by Katie Bernier

Single. Married. We are all people, but sometimes our relational statuses seem to create a ravine in our friendships we don’t know how to bridge. Suddenly friendships with similar schedules and activities change when a 3rd person enters the equation and priories shift. Leaving questions of “what now”? “Can we still be good friends?” And all to often the friendships drift apart or cease all together. 

This workshop will focus on answering the question “How do single and married friends relate when our life circumstances, challenges, and focus are so different?”  If you want to learn how to nurture deeper friendships with your married friends and family, join Katie as co-teaches this workshop with her best friend (who is married). They will share their journey of friendship and the lessons they learned along the way. 

"Treasuring God's Word" by Jim Carl

“How can a young man (or woman) keep his way pure?  By keeping it according to Your word.  With all my heart I have sought you.  Do not let me wander from Your commandments.  Your word I have treasured in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:9-11 

When Pirates came upon valuable loot after a successful raid, they would then need find a safe, remote island on which to bury and hide their treasure.  Then, when the time was right, they would then come back to dig up their treasure and enjoy its benefits.

We can do the same thing with God’s word.  According to Psalm 119 verse 11, if we treasure (hide) God’s Word in our heart, then the Holy Spirit can dig it up at just the right time. The benefits - this treasure will keep us walking according to God’s Word and keep our way pure. But first, we must hide God’s Word in our heart.  The Holy Spirit can’t dig up what wasn’t hidden (treasured)! 

This workshop is for those who would like to learn some simple “How To” steps for memorizing God’s Word, including learning how to use Flashcards Deluxe for smartphones and tablets.
