Life after College: Navigating the Transition to the 'Real World'

Transition: does anyone do it well? The transition from college to the working world is one of the biggest transitions there is, and also the most difficult to navigate without majors fears, confusions and hardship. This workshop will help you begin to answer the questions: what can I expect from my first few years after college? How do I establish myself spiritually and relationally in a new season of life? How can I trust in the midst of transition and unrest?

First session only.

Gospel-Centered Disciplemaking

God’s great love story with humanity: a brief overview of the story of the Bible.

The Bible isn't a random collection of thoughts, sayings, and ideas. It's a carefully woven narrative by the Master Storyteller - who chose to include us at the heart of the story. Come and see how this central theme runs through every piece of Scripture!

Daily Living in the Gospel

Think: what does your life tend to revolve around? Chances are good it revolves around YOU, but God has so much more in mind for our lives! He wants lifestyle and hearts that are centered around Jesus and His gospel. Come learn how to trust Christ with all that we are, and to believe the gospel anew every day.

The Gospel of Sex

Many of us grew up with a Christian background that has either been silent about sexuality or have only communicated negative messages about sex and sexuality (‘You don’t have sex before marriage’). But why has God created our sexuality, what did He had in mind when he created us man and woman and why is it good? No matter where we are coming from, our sexual orientation, our sexual history - Jesus calling on our sexuality as followers of Him is good news! During this workshop we will dig into the scriptures to discover the Gospel message of our bodies, gender, and sexuality.
