Elective #1: "Gospel Clarity" with Jay Pound
Many of us find it difficult to talk to others about the gospel - even when we want to. Could it be that we may not understand it as clearly as we assume? Communicating anything effectively begins with understanding it clearly. Join pastor Jay Pound as we look again at the good news of the gospel in order that we might understand and communicate it more clearly. (Runs all 3 weeks).
Elective #2: Resources for Ministering to the Next Generation
Week 1: Hear from Brad Houdashelt, a member of CRU's (formerly Campus Crusade) national staff as he shares about CRU's efforts to minister in the digital age through social media, technology and the internet.
Week 2: Are you the parent or grandparent of a teen? Do you work with students? Have you ever looked for ministry resources, only to feel overwhelmed by the options? Join our student pastor Jason Pensa as he shares some great resources for students.
Week 3: We know it can be hard to sift through all the resources out there for children and families. Join our children's ministry director Beth Brown as she shares some of her favorite choices with you.
