The Future of Our Faith: A Kingdom for All Generations

Have you heard people say that the church is dying? Why do older and younger Christians often get stuck when talking about things that are important to their age groups? Have you noticed the gap between your generation and others? If you’ve ever had questions like these, then come and join us for a journey into God’s word and its impact on the generations. We will learn about how each generation “ticks” and the common places where we all get stuck from time to time. We’ll study practical and helpful advice on the best ways to grow together and move forward. You won’t want to miss it! This workshop is best designed for at least eight weeks on Wednesday nights, but can be made available in a variety of formats.
