THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW

Sanctuary | Pastor Ballestero & Pastoral Staff
Matthew presents Him as King. Mark presents Him as a Servant. Luke presents Him as the Perfect Man, and John presents Him as the Perfect God. In this series, we will seek to expound on the first gospel and
complete an overview of Matthew.

OVERWHELMED

Pastor’s Study | Akil & Sarah Thompson
No one ever said like was going to be easy. Between financial struggles, marital issues, health scares, and the run-of-the-mill problems of everyday life, it’s easy to fell weighed down and trapped by your circumstances. In times like these, it’s tempting to just throw in the towel and quit.

Well, don’t do it!

In this class, we will share keys to unlocking the chains of anxiety and despair once and for all. Building on the premise that everything changes when we shift our focus from our circumstances to Christ. This Midweek Connection Class will walk you through a life-altering plan for overcoming stress, worry, depression, and anxiety so
we can be free to embrace the abundant, joy-filled lives we were created for. God knows we’re frustrated. He knows we’re tired. He knows we’re struggling, But He also knows how things are going to turn out. He is greater than anything you’re going through… so don’t give up on God. After all, He has never given up on you!

RAISING KINGDOM KIDS

Chapel | Rob & Sherri Rorie
It’s far easier to SHAPE A CHILD than to REPAIR AN ADULT. Parenting is tough, and life today is busy. Creating a kingdom mind-set in your home may sound like more than you can handle. But by starting small and starting today, you can produce benefits that will last a lifetime.

Raising kids who recognize and retain their identity as children of the King launches healthy adults who have the capacity to stand strong in their faith. In this Midweek Connection Class you will learn practical, step-by-step strategies to:
• Create an atmosphere where your kids can maintain their identity in Jesus Christ despite the culture around them.
• Grow in confidence as you discover your worth as a parent, based on God’s Word and not on your kids’ actions.
• Experience the freedom of influencing your children rather than the futility of trying to control them.

A WOMEN WHO DOESN’T QUIT: 5 HABITS FROM THE BOOK OF TRUTH (ladies only)

Choir Room | Alison Barden
Every woman eventually faces the decision whether or not to give up, but there’s something special that happens when a woman decides to persevere in the face of problems or pain. A woman who refuses to quit influences her world in ways she could have never dreamed or imagine. Perseverance is one of the greatest skills but also the hardest lessons we will learn in our lifetime. We are living in a day where we are encouraged to do life based on how we feel, but the problem is that most days we don’t feel like doing anything challenging. In this Midweek Connection Class, you will learn to follow through on your commitments despite your feelings and embrace the grace of refinement rather than the relief of release.
