What is God's will for me?

One of the most common questions I get as a pastor is, “What is God’s will for _______.”  That blank can be filled in with anything.  A relationship with a loved one. A job.  A house.  People want to know how to pursue God’s will in life but we all feel desperately inadequate at discerning what that will is. 

On Monday nights in June, Scott will lead a series of conversations that will guide us in how to think about discerning God’s will for our lives.  6:30 pm at NSC.  For those of you coming from work, there will be snacks available.  Show up a little early if you want to eat, chat, and hang out a bit.

In May, we'll be watching the movie Inside-Out.  Normally we ask the parents to drop off the kids so that the kids can have a safe environment to share thing they might not want to share with their parents.  But, in May, we are encouraging parents to attend to watch this movie.  Going forward, we'll use this movie as a foundation for conversations about self-awareness and emotions during difficult times.

Holiday Service Work (for Healing place and Prison Ministry) and Movie Night

Every year we get together and stuff stockings for the guys at the Healing Place.  If you don't know what this means, we basically pack bags full of useful stuff like toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks, gloves, winter hats, etc. so that all 200 hundred guys down there have what they need to get through winter.  We also will be writing cards to all the people who have participated in our Prison Ministry recovery correspondence course.  This will happen at 6:30 pm on Saturday December 17th.  

While this is going on we will have a fun Christmas movie on in the background.  

And, if that weren't enough, we'll also do our annual cookie exchange.  Bring a fun batch of cookies to trade!

Richard Grosse: Crisis vs. Life Event

Our favorite psych expert will be at NSC at 7:00 pm to discuss the difference between a "crisis" and a "life event".  Often, we think every bad thing that happens to us is a "crisis" and we want everyone else to respond to us as if each thing is a crisis.  Richard is going to help us find some perspective on that.

The Work

Millie Cain and Shirl are friends and co-collaborators who guide people in an exercise called “THE WORK”.  Those interested in seeing how a simple exercise that involves asking yourself 4 questions can be helpful in getting us “unstuck” from old patterns of thinking that are not helpful.
