SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION through SACRED RHYTHM
-  Rev. Dr. Howard Griffin, Rev. Dr. Murray Gossett

Parlor

“Spiritual transformation is the process by which Christ, is formed in us - for the glory of God, for the abundance of our own lives, and for the sake of others; it results in an increasing capacity to discern and do the will of God.”(Ruth Haley Barton) Throughout history, God has used certain spiritual practices to help shape and transform God’s people. As we seek to arrange our lives for Spiritual Transformation, we will learn about and practice different spiritual practices that have helped shape God’s people for centuries. We will use a video-based curriculum where best-selling author and spiritual director Ruth Haley Barton will guide us through different spiritual practices as we read and discuss her book Sacred Rhythms: Spiritual Practices that Nourish Our Soul and Transform Our Lives. Books can be purchased online or on the first night of class.

 

Rhythms of the New Life -  Rev. Kim Talley, Emily Wood, & home group leaders

Fellowship Center (1105 Room) and Home Groups

This Spring, we’ll all eat together in the Fellowship Center (1105 Room) and then our ‘at church’ class will stay in that room for the study. There will be

Home Groups that go to homes after dinner for their study/discussion time. We will look at the early church in the book of Acts and study their spiritual practices. We’ll also study historical spiritual practices and discover how to apply them to our personal and corporate lifestyles. We will utilize readings from the following books: Richard Foster’s Celebration of Discipline; Ruth Haley Barton’s Sacred Rhythms; Peter Scazzerro’s Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.

Empty Nesters – A Full Season of Life -  Jennifer & Dwayne Roberts

Room 202

You've been married a while, you've raised kids a while, the kids have moved ‘out of the nest.’ So now what? This group focuses on how to navigate the ‘empty nest’ season of parenting adult children and reconnecting with your spouse. Life is an adventure, and it's definitely not over when the kids

move out! Share your life and be encouraged by other couples in the same full season of life as you.

 

Parents of Little Ones (Parents Time out) -  Mentor Couples
