Less Hustle, More God: intentional patterns of spiritual disciplines
Angie Likens

Session B

When is the last time you dedicated time to engage with God? When you weren’t being interrupted by children or spouse or the always-present to-do list calling your name? We can get buried under the never ending to-do list and stay wrapped up in working so hard to make “stuff” happen. Sometimes you are faced with getting it done anyway you can, one day at a time. You may get stuck in the “doing” of everyday life and forget how powerful and necessary it is to step away and take time to focus on and engage with God. He is the author of the story we are called to participate in, and he can be trusted with every detail. Let’s learn to stop the hustle and focus on Him.

The fine art of Discipleship
Jean Klughart

Session C & D

The goal of discipleship is captured well in this quote by R. T. Williams:  "The reproduction of the life of Christ, on the canvas of every day life…is the finest of the fine arts “

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus describes a true believer as being "the salt of the earth" and “the light of the world". Come unpack what those descriptions of our identity in Christ mean and how they are essentially our primary purpose for existence. Regardless of age, sex, marital or socio-economic status, or even our roles or titles (or lack thereof), we all have a high calling, which we are also called to reproduce in our generation and in the generations to come. Want to know what Jesus calls YOU to do with YOUR life (as a result of who He has MADE YOU to BE)—not just theoretically, but in your real daily life, starting today? Come hear answers straight from His Word!

Your Body Matters to God: Developing a Biblical and Theological Understanding of the Physical Body for Ourselves and Our Teaching
Alexandria Ford, Ed.D.

Session A & B

How are we to understand ourselves, including our physical bodies, from a Christian perspective? As believers, we recognize that we are created in the image of God and Scripture testifies to how God’s hand is intricately involved in each aspect of our creation.

Ministry of Humility, Hope and Love in Suffering and Pain
Angie Durham and Kim Turpin

Session A

We can plan ahead, work to be healthy, comfortable, wealthy and successful, and live with the full knowledge that at some point we will still face suffering. Within the story of God lies our true understanding of suffering and how to walk through life with this reality. Do you ever feel insecure about your ability to encourage those around you during their hard seasons? As women in discipleship relationships you have a unique role in helping those around you connect the Gospel to their own pain and suffering.  It is important to understand the root of pain and suffering as well as how to walk with others in grace and love as they navigate through this life. Join Kim Turpin and Angie Durham in a discussion centered on how to (and how not to!) walk with the hurting and offer the hope of the Gospel.
