Adult/High School Gatherings
Here is a schedule of adult classes for the Fall 2019 session of Wednesdays at Willow:
Study the Gospel of John in Espanol (Room 603). Facilitator: Nelson Rivera.
Come learn who Jesus is and discuss essential truth's of the Christian faith as Nelson Rivera facilitates a Bible study for those who speak Spanish. The class will include elements of food, fellowship, and fun, along with prayer and practical application of God's word.
Seeing & Sharing God's Amazing Story (Room 604). Facilitator: Pastor Drew Taylor.
In our daily life, it is often difficult to see all the good God is doing. This offering is designed to look through the lens of scripture to see God's plan for you, for his church, and for the world. You will discover what He has called you to in this life, and will learn practical ways to share your story with others. This class is discussion based and very relaxed. Come check it out and bring a friend!
First Place for Health (Room 606) - Facilitator: Marcia Southard. First Place for Health is a Christ-centered total-wellness program that helps you achieve emotional, physical, mental and spiritual wellness. You can buy Forever Changed, a First Place for Health Bible study, here.
The study will focus on the Word (lots of scripture!) and the importance of putting God first as it relates to our health - particularly food and activity choices. In other words, this is an ideal group for anyone wanting to address their weight loss and health/fitness goals depending upon God and in community with others!
Strategic Business Prayer (Crossroads Cafe)- Facilitators: Dawn Whitestone and John Szydlowski. Harness the power of prayer for your work-life with Strategic Business Prayer. Ephesians 2:10 tells us that God has good work that He planned in advance for us to do. Learn to listen in prayer, ask the right questions, and find the direction you are looking for in business. Cost for curriculum: $13 plus tax.
GriefShare (Room 605). Facilitators: Gaye Butler and Julia Miller. Staff contact: Jeff Smith. It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Register here.
Leadership Training (Senior Pastor's Study). Facilitator: Pastor Kevin Labby. In this second module of leadership training, we will cover the entire Westminster Confession of faith as well as several practical aspects of biblical church leadership. This course is open to all, but required of all those considering service as elders, deacons, or women's ministry leaders.
