“INDESTRUCTIBLE JOY” Advent Series starts December 2.
Christmas is not new to us. Once a year, we try to grasp as much joy as we can in the rush of the season. But what if the gift of real joy has already been given and all we need to do is receive it? The angel said, “Behold, I bring you good news of great joy.” (Luke 2:10) Not a little joy, but “great joy.” John Piper’s Advent book is called The Dawning of Indestructible Joy, because when you open your life to God’s joy, the Bible promises: “No one can take your joy from you.” (John 16:22).

“small things BIG DIFFERENCE” Series starts January 13.
Major resolutions and huge goals – when we want change, we want it now. Buy maybe taking life in a new direction has more to do with little things. Too often, our big plans and major resolutions become a burden to us and not a blessing, especially if we can’t fulfill them. Join Dr. Gardner as he teaches us to make small, manageable, incremental changes that really add up. Simple things like choosing our words, training our thoughts, taking a small step to a new habit, can incrementally add up to long-term change.

“SHINE: Authentic Faith” Series starts February 10.
The Bible talks a great deal about the power of light in familiar verses. Psalm 119 says, “Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” But much of the daily news makes it sound like a dark and fearful world. In Matthew 5:16, Jesus reminded us that we each have light to shine: “Let your light so shine that people may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” Dr. Gardner says, “When I was thirteen, I was given that Bible verse and it has been my anchor for all these years, calling me to shine my light.” In a world filled with uncertainty, we can learn to shine our light.
