- Five Lies That Ruin Relationships: Wrong Beliefs Produce Wrong Behaviors – Have you ever looked back over a circumstance or relationships in your life and wondered how they became so messy or difficult? God longs for us to have right relationships with Him and our spouse, family, and friends! He longs for intimacy, peace, love, and joy to reign in our hearts for our hearts are the wellspring of life. So, what is getting in the way of experiencing that kind of intimacy in your relationships? In this video-based study, by Chip Ingram, we will unpack five lies from the book of James that have the potential to ruin relationships with those we love. There is power in knowing and applying God’s truth, when confronted with these lies, and discovering the freedom He longs for us to enjoy in our relationships. We’ll also examine the source of quarreling, how our words can wound others, how not to make decisions, and why better things don’t always make things better. A workbook is needed for each family and will be available in class for $10. If paying by check make payable to: Triad Baptist Church.
- Basic Sign Language – Have you ever wanted to learn sign language? Have you learned it in the past, but need a refresher or desire to add to your knowledge of sign? We are offering a Basic Sign Language Class. We will use the book, Talking with your Hands, Hearing with Your Eyes, by Gabriel Grayson. Used copies may be purchased from Thriftbooks.com or Amazon.
