F3:FAMILY-FAITH-FORMATION WINTER SESSION CLASSES

THE ART OF NEIGHBORING
Meets Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 PM
Led by Pastor Rob Goodwin

What would happen if every believer in your city made an attempt to build relationships with the people in the 8 households that are closest to them? Imagine what God could do through those relationships. The smartest thing that we can do collectively as Jesus’ followers to impact our city is to actually live out Jesus’ command to love our neighbors. Join us as we learn the Art of Neighboring and grow together in living out three “neighborhood practices” that will help us take practical steps towards becoming great neighbors. There is a book for this course at a cost of $10.00 (available at the first class).

BIBLE STUDY: PHILIPPIANS
Meets Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 PM
Led by Daryl Allen

Things don’t always go the way we intend. Paul, writing to the Philippians from prison, certainly knew what it was like to have plans interrupted. But he maintained robust confidence in God’s overruling power, even when everything seemed to be going wrong. Join us as we learn together from Paul the art of seeing God’s purposes working out through problems and difficulties and deepen our own confidence in God’s will. There is a study guide for this course at a cost of $8.00 (available at the first class).

SPL KIDS F3 – PreK-6th Grade
Meets Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 PM
Led by the SPL Kids Team

All will meet in the SPL Field House for a few minutes of open gym and fellowship, head to the Great Room for a large group time of Bible teaching, prayer, and God sightings, then go to breakout rooms where they can enjoy fellowship over Godly Play materials, games, or study hall.
