Topic“Restless” (Jennie Allen)
Description:  Our lives are full up to the brim with jobs, children, homes, family, friends, and church, to name a few. Yet, we often feel empty, bored, and restless. Our hearts yearn to know that we're fulfilling the purpose we've been put on this planet to accomplish.  Jennie Allen gives practical advice on how to identify our gifts and passions, even our suffering, to help us discover and embrace God’s purpose and plan for our lives.

Facilitators: Iris and Sue

Topic“Wired --- (by God)”
Description: There's something in us that wants to know that the world isn’t random - that somehow it's wired, and we're wired, to work in a certain way. That someone or something has our back. It all begins with Creation. God is making a point of letting us know that it was not by accident. This study will provide your teens with evidence and answers to many tough questions!

Facilitators: Chris Butler and Lynn Wilson
Day/Time: Thursday, 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Topic“Wired---(by God)”
Description: We are all uniquely wired by our Creator and called by Jesus to love God, ourselves, and others. In a connected world, we can feel disconnected; we all need to know that what we do and who we are matters. This study is designed to show our children that we are connected to something greater and linked to Someone bigger than ourselves who has created us for a special purpose. 

Co-Facilitators: Chris Butler, Cally Butler, Serena Bettez
