- Gardening and Growing with God -Do you like to garden and play in the dirt? In this class, we want to focus on basic gardening skills, soil, plants, and flowers. In John 15:1 we read, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.” God shares with us throughout the Bible great lessons related to farming and gardening, which we will explore. We will discuss growing vegetables, blueberry and blackberry plants, and other various types of plants.
- Prophecy: "God's Hourglass" - Biblical prophecy takes us immediately into the world of coming events. Study with us about who, what, where, when, why, and how the future will unfold. All prophecy is a miracle! It is God at work in our world. It is exciting and it is certain. It is tomorrow's headline today!
- The Search for Significance - From life's onset, we begin searching to satisfy an inner, unexplained longing. Often unrecognized, we attempt to fulfill this hunger with acceptance and praise from others. The need is self-worth (or self-esteem), it is God-given and can only be satisfied by Him. Understanding this need will open the door to understanding our actions and attitudes. The purpose of this class is to better understand, apply and experience God's truth in our search for self-worth. Concepts in the book, 'The Search for Significance' can be used to mentor others. The class is offered to those interested in mentoring, but also those interested personally are invited.
