Living Like Christ: The More of Less (Women’s Study)

Wednesdays 9-11:30am, Sept 5 – Oct 31 (9 weeks)
Room 221, $8, Led by Sherri Wirt
Based on writings from several authors, this class begins with an exploration of what the Bible
says about living a simpler life. We’ll discuss whether or not Jesus purposely lived a minimalistic life and if the New Testament actually calls us to do the same. Author Joshua Becker says, “We feel the weight and burden of our clutter every day. It redirects our greatest passions to things that can never fulfill. And it distracts us from the very life we wish we were living.” In addition to examining scripture, the study will provide practical, feasible steps toward managing those things that clutter our hearts and homes. Please RSVP for childcare: 1 child = $25 for entire course; 2+ children = $35 for entire course.

Connection Classes

Connection Classes are often the first level of connection at Concord. These meet year-round at 9am on Sunday mornings (much like your traditional Sunday school classes) and last about an hour. The goal of Connection Classes is to help you connect with others at Concord who are in a similar life stage and/or share your interests. These classes provide opportunity for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer support and will help you begin to put down roots at Concord.

Support Groups

Support groups bring together people with common interests and experiences that can relate to what you are going through and keep you from feeling alone. A support group can help you affirm your thoughts and feelings and help you connect socially. As members of a support group share their personal experiences, offer emotional comfort, moral support, and tips to help one another through their situations, stress, anxiety and fear can be reduced leading to happier, healthier lives.
