Living Faithfully Despite all of the Noise (Trillia Newbell)

If we are honest, there can be times when we wonder if our life matters at all. Is our everyday work enough? Through God’s Word and the lives of those who have gone before us, God has a message for you. In this session, author Trillia Newbell will encourage you to live faithfully as we cling to the One who sees, cares, and delights over us.

 

How to Navigate Today’s Culture (John Mark Comer)

What does it look like for us to be the Church in today’s culture? How do we be Christians that aren’t hiding from the world, but also aren’t swayed by it? Join Pastor John Mark Comer as he unpacks how we live a life that reflects God when the world around us is reeling.

You Don’t Have to be Just Like Her (Sadie Robertson Huff)

We get caught up in a game of comparison all the time when we scroll through social media or watch someone else gain a platform and a following. The comparison game can get ugly when it distracts us from what God has in store for each one of us. Join author and speaker, Sadie Robertson Huff, as she reminds us where our identity comes from and how to quit playing the comparison game.

Relationships Every Leader Needs to Prioritize (Jo Saxton)

We’re all leading in one way or another, and figuring out our priorities can be a huge challenge. Leadership coach and mentor, Jo Saxton, will remind you what matters, and more importantly, WHO matters as you lead.

What role does the Church play in racial reconciliation and what are the next steps to take? Join Be the Bridge founder, Latasha Morrison, and Arrabon Executive Director, David Bailey, for this conversation on racial justice and the Church.

As a mom of preschool-aged children, you can easily feel isolated and lonely.  Flourish (formerly MOPS/Mothers of Preschoolers) is a place where you can be connected with other moms in a similar season of life, while learning from mentors who have thrived through motherhood.

Flourish meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month (September – May) from 9:15- 11:30am. Childcare is provided for children 6 months to 5 years old. Cost is $65 for the year and scholarships are available upon request. Throughout the year, we will hear from speakers on a variety of topics relevant to moms of littles, like marriage, parenting, mental health, and many others. We will also have crafts and games and good conversation – all while your little ones enjoy some fun time with their playmates!

Our group has about 40 moms who are divided into smaller groups of eight. These groups of eight will be meeting in separate rooms this year due to social distancing guidelines. We will also be wearing masks in accordance with church requirements.

Moms do not have to be a member of Grace Community Church to attend Flourish.

Registration Notes: Once you have registered yourself, you will receive a confirmation email which includes a link to register your children.  Your child WILL NOT have a spot in one of our childcare rooms until you finish registering them.
