Who Is This Man? The Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus: Adults for Christ

Learn how you can follow in Jesus' footsteps today.

Feasting on the Word

How does my faith formation and my worship integrate with my knowledge and experience of the world?  Adults see the world through the filter of life experience and life transitions. Adults enter Bible study and worship bringing with them this variety of views. Feasting on the Word materials will engage adults in a deeper exploration of biblical texts. Christian faith will be enhanced when the Scriptures read and proclaimed in worship are reinforced and expanded on what they have

been considering in their educational time. Education and worship can be mutually supportive in helping God’s word in Scripture come alive in the Sunday morning experience.  This is a 9 month study that coincides with what the children will be studying in their classrooms throughout the year. *A second class will be offered, if this one fills up*

Prayer Worth Repeating

Prayer Worth Repeating is a Stonecroft Ministries study designed for women who have adult children eighteen years and older. The “the hands on “stage” of parenting is past and while mothers will always be a significant influence in their adult children’s lives that influence now takes a different shape. The purpose of this study is to connect mothers with God on behalf of their adult children who are not actively engaged with Him. This study will help moms focus their prayers and encourage them to trust God more deeply as He works in the lives of their adult children.  A PAC (Parents of Adult Children) sponsored study.

Feasting on the Word – ROCK Youth

How do I live my life as a disciple of Jesus Christ?  Youth are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. Feasting on the Word materials provide opportunities for this age group to explore their personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God’s amazing, unconditional love, youth will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ’s disciples. Each session includes a media connection section that ties the week’s Scripture passage to a film, video, song, or Web site.
