As God is our Father we will renew our unique relationships with Him, bring glory to Him by becoming like Christ.

Purpose Driven Life (Russian) by Rick Warren


Этот класс будет строиться на книге Рика Воррена «Целеустремленная жизнь». Он поможет нам обновить осознание себя как уникальных Божьих детей, чья жизнь не является случайностью, исследовать цель свой жизни в соответствии с Божьим планом для неё. Бог является нашим Отцом, и мы обновим наши уникальные отношения с Ним, став больше похожими на Христа. Эта точка зрения поможет нам справляться с ситуациями стресса, принимать решения, восстанавливать разрушенные отношения и воссоздавать себя, свою семью и сообщество, принося больше радости Богу и больше удовлетворения в свою жизнь.
Книги: Библия, Рик Воррен «Целеустремленная жизнь»

Love and Respect (Korean) (Women)


Leader: Yeonah Lee Moon


Location: Online only


Time: Friday 9:30 am EST


Class code: FLL-LKW


Ephesians 5:33 teaches us that God wants wives to live by respecting our husbands. However, can I respect my future husband even when he is acting unreasonably? When you get blessed, give birth, and raise children, it isn't easy to always be a loving and respectful mother. What should I do then? Let's think about it together! Let's study the words of the Bible about love and respect, cry and laugh together, and be filled with the Holy Spirit of God.
