Solomon’s Wisdom: Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon
Teacher: Dr. Scott Moore and Chip Smith
Two books of the old testament, written by the same author, but very different in nature. The first half of the semester, led by Pastor Scott, will focus on “The Preacher’s” search for meaning in life. The second half, taught by Chip, will look at the celebration of intimacy found in the Song. A great opportunity for some in-depth Bible study.
Grief Share: Your Journey from Mourning to Joy
Teacher: Abby Boerner
After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues, and you feel alone. Often, friends and family want to help you, but they don’t know how. That’s the reason for Grief Share. This group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel, because we’ve been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.
Girls are Pearls (For Ladies in Youth)
Teacher: Dory Moore
Young women today are told many conflicting stories about who they should be. Between school, friends, television, and social media, it’s hard to know which way to choose. God’s desire is for you to understand how valuable and beautiful you really are. The development of a healthy self- image and healthy relationships is essential to becoming a woman of God.
Boys 2 Men (For Men in Youth)
Teacher: Brent Wiley
These are difficult times to be a young man. Temptations abound that didn’t exist a generation ago. Pornography and sexual promiscuity are so commonplace, they are no longer considered shameful. The postmodern culture defines right and wrong in terms of personal preference, which makes it harder than ever to follow Jesus. And at this age, you make decisions everyday that will affect the rest of your life. This course will help you along the path toward becoming a man of integrity.
