Belong to God's family

The Bible teaches that each follower of Jesus plays a part in helping God's church to grow, thrive, and flourish (Ephesians 4; 1 Corinthians 12). God has made each one of us part of His Body and we have a role to fulfill.

We grow and mature as we commit to belonging to one another in deep and meaningful relationships. Superficial relationships are not something God encourages us to have, but instead, Christ-centered relationships that help to build life, honor, healing, wholeness, and spiritual maturity in our lives that make us more like Jesus. Being part of a church family is not only the way that God designed for us to grow in life, it is the way God designed for us to thrive in life.

The Best Yes by Lysa Terkeurst:

Lysa Terkeurst has learned firsthand that there's a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. Drawing from applicable scriptures and her own personal experiences, Lysa teaches us that if we know and believe that God has a plan for each of us, we'll live it out--serving as living proof of His never-ending grace and kindness.

Over the course of six meet ups, through The Best Yes, Lysa will give you the practical tools you need to:
- Stop people-pleasing by embracing a biblical understanding of love
- Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no
- Overcome the agony of hard choices by grounding your decisions in wisdom
- Grow closer to God as you sharpen your own discernment
- Learn to be intentional with your time, your choices, and yourself

It’s Not Supposed to be This Way by Lysa Terkeurst:

Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.

Lysa TerKeurst has discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. Over the course of six meet ups, this book helps us to:

- Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
- Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.
- Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give us more than we can handle.
- Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us.
- Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.
