Perspectives helps believers from all walks of life see how they can get threaded into God’s story of redeeming people from every tribe, tongue, and nation to Himself.

From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus Christ to the early church, and Constantine to today, you will see how God has been moving, how the global Church has responded, and what the greatest needs in world evangelism remain today. 

 

It isn't a class about missions, but a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into the story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.

 

Learn firsthand from the global experiences of pastors, professors, biblical scholars, mobilizers, theologians, and missionaries from the field.

GriefShare, a 13-week grief recovery program, will be held Tuesdays this fall.

 

GriefShare is a special grief recovery seminar and support group.  GriefShare is built around three components: video seminar, a support group, and a workbook.  This program provides tools to guide participants in sorting through their thoughts and emotions  and in learning what the Bible says about grief-related topics.  All three components are essential for promoting healing.

 

Grief is the cost of loving someone.  It is inevitable that during such a loss we would be deeply impacted, shocked, or wounded by it.  Grief is the manner in which we work through this loss.  Grief recovery is not simply feeling better, but the ability to find joy in life.  It is to treasure the memory of loved ones, to miss them and to live better because of the time in your life that you spent with them.  

 

For more information or to pre-register for the fall, contact Joleen by phone, email, or visit the GriefShare website.
