Life Training Groups

 

Life Training Groups are designed to equip the body of Christ with wisdom and understanding of kingdom principles to apply to our life.  Life Training Groups are designed with you in mind.  The first training groups are designed to build community while learning how to break the chains of bad decisions, habits, and hangups.  Each group will incorporate a plan that can be implemented during the 9 week schedule and applied for a lifetime of freedom.  Along with our life training groups we will also offer two life groups that will connect believers together as they learn and study the bible by word, discussion and prayer.

Our Life Training Groups include:

  1. Financial Peace University:

We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God’s ways of handling money.  Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!  In fact, did you know the average household will pay off $5,300 in debt and save $2,700 in the first 90 days?

FPU classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for nine weeks. Class begins April 10th at 6:00pm and costs $95.00 to attend.   Currently, this class is SOLD OUT!

  1. The Power of your words:
In The Power of Your Words training group you will learn that there are three types of people:
(1) those who think before they speak; (2) those who think while they speak; and (3) those who think after they speak.Which one are you? If you were told that God records every word you speak, would this help you to think before you speak?We all know that words carry enormous power:

  • the power to heal or to wound
  • to encourage or to dishearten
  • to praise or to criticize.

They can be the key to our success or the reason for our downfall. So, how do we harness that power? How do we learn to use our words to their greatest potential?

The Power of Your Words training group will take you on a journey of discovery into more than just the obvious physical and emotional impact your words can have. This is a journey that will help you understand the spiritual force inherent in every word you speak. Find out how to live more freely; how to connect more meaningfully; how to undo the damage of your words; and, most important, how to pause, ponder, and then pray before speaking.

  1.  How to study the Bible:

During the 9 weeks of this Life Training Group you will discover how to mine the gems of God’s Word, prayerfully, and intentionally.  Topics covered in each session include:
