Significant Others, with Monte Cox

Our world is becoming increasingly pluralistic. Even in West Texas there is an increasing variety of devout religious adherents living in our own neighborhoods! In this video series, Monte Cox will walk us through understanding the basics of the world’s leading religions. More importantly, he will equip us to have meaningful conversations with our neighbors of other faiths. Monte has served as a foreign missionary, and he has taught World Religions at Harding University for many years. Each Sunday, we will listen to Monte teach, and then we will have some time for discussion.

Trusting the Holy Spirit

Our faith heritage has struggled with the Holy Spirit because…well, the nature and work of the Spirit is mysterious…and we are uncomfortable with mystery! But the Holy Spirit is central to the Christian life and ongoing Mission of God in the world. So when we neglect the Spirit, we also neglect God’s mission. Join Ryan Porche on Sundays this summer as he guides us through material from Leonard Allen’s book Poured Out. Can we grow in our trust of God’s Spirit at work within us and around us? Can we grow in our comfort with mystery?

The Good & Beautiful Life

All of us live our lives according to a story. We live according to a larger narrative of what we believe to be true and what we imagine will build the best life. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus makes a distinction between different narratives: “You’ve heard it said…, but I say.” On Sunday mornings this summer, Doyle will lead us through conversations based on the book The Good and Beautiful Life by James Bryan Smith. These conversations are designed to help us examine the narratives driving our choices. Are we driven by Kingdom narratives which cultivate Godly character? Or are we driven by false narratives promising a happiness they cannot deliver?

The Change Moment
June 5 - July 31


Change is hard, but God created us to change - to transform.  So, how do we navigate change in our lives? What can we learn from those earliest disciples about how God changed them and might that help us?

We will use Jerry’s book, The Change Moment as a resource. Join us as we learn to embrace the experiences that change us in a healthy way.

It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way, by Lysa Terkeurst
What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful? Whether we’re dealing with daily disappointments or life-altering loss, we can find unexpected strength as we learn to wrestle well between our faith and our feelings.
