April 8 - June 10 :: Spring Connections
COLLEGE/YOUNG ADULT (18 to late 20’s)
Life can be pretty crazy sometimes. It is dangerous to go alone. Take this: “For the word of God is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword.” Grab a cup of coffee and come and see how God’s word equips us for the road ahead.
Led by Zach and Jill Riley
Meets in the Front Room
THE BRANCH (30’s to early 40’s)
I’d Like You More If You Were More Like Me
With engaging video input from John Ortberg, we will explore the key building blocks of deep, enriching relationships. God created us to be connected to other people but it’s often not easy. Come learn from the Bible and gain new skills in strengthening your relationships with friends, spouses, fellow Branch members as well as God himself. Anne Dunn will be leading our study.
Meets in 201D
BUILDERS (40’s to early 50’s)
Our spring focus will be, “Parenting for the Launch.” The practice of parenting evolves as our kids grow and develop. Each new phase of child development means requires skills from us as parents. A crucial parenting task is launching our kids into the adult world. For some, this will be preparing for what is to come; other Builders are in the middle of this phase. Ed and Sara Martin will be leading this study which will help you with the launch.
Meets in 203D
LIVING STONES (50’s to early 60’s)
The spring, our focus is called, “The Way Back” with the subtitle, “How Christians blew our credibility and how to get it back.” The church began with 12 no bodies but in a short time became the world’s most influential religion but now, Christianity is under retreat. Our study will explore how this has happened but more importantly how we as individuals and congregations can pursue the biblical practices that will turn this trend around.
Led by David Woodford
Meets in 105D
WISER TOGETHER (60+)
The spring focus for Wiser Together is called, “Covenant Affirmations.” A few of us grew up in Covenant churches but most of us have been part of other kinds of Christian churches. In our study, we will unpack the Covenant Affirmations, the core values of the Evangelical Covenant Church movement to see how we are alike and as well as different from other Christian churches and to better understand our contribution to American church life. Betty Hansen will be leading our study.
Meets in Pearson Hall
GENERATIONS (all ages)
Psalm 145:4 proclaims, “One generation commends your works to
another; they tell of your mighty acts.” Come share life and wisdom with adults of all ages. The conversation will center on the pastoral message of the day and ask two big questions: What is God saying, and what are we going to do about it?
