We are a community seeking the God's Kingdom gifts of connection, love, joy, freedom and hope on earth while exploring together the spirituality of brokenness in ourselves and the world and how God speaks healing and wholeness into our lives through a safe, authentic Christian community. We are primarily a book discussion group coming together on Sunday mornings to discuss suggested selections we have read on our own during the week. Reading selections are chosen to enhance our tools for living out a relationship with Jesus in a real and challenging world with our very real attachments, hurts and addictions. We would love for you to join us in this rich, deep encounter. Come give our community a try!
Now in our 7th year of exploring together how God speaks healing and recovery into our lives through a safe, authentic Christian community, we are pleased to currently be discussing Unlocking Your Family Pattern: Finding Freedom from a Hurtful Past (Cloud, Townsend, Carder, and Henslin.
Principles of our group:
• Authenticity and safety to be heard
• No advice giving
• Searching for Biblical answers
• Practicing living out our learning
• Weekly helpful reading assignments
In sum, our study offers a a safe, authentic community and a biblical approach to discerning how God speaks healing into our lives.
