Adult Workshops:

____Dating or Courtship? (Lead by Steve & Kim Whipple)

Einstein said that the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting the results to be different.” Dr. Tommy Nelson, pastor and author, says that “we in the church want to attract and date the way the world does, but because we are ‘Christians’ we expect the results to be different.” What does the Bible say about dating? Is courtship “old fashioned” and “out of style”? Just how “different” and “set apart” are we supposed to be in this area anyway? What does a biblical model of dating/courtship really look like? Come explore this topic as we discuss some practical ways parents can help their teenagers make wise, biblical choices in regards to relationships.

____Who’s on First? (Lead by Mike & Mary Pinkerton)

What does baseball and discipleship have in common? Ask yourself, "What do I need to do to get up to bat? Who is on first? How can the game of baseball relate to discipleship within the family?" Join us as we take a look at the importance of discipleship within our families and gain some practical tools to making discipleship a reality in our own homes.
