    Summer Study
    Various dates & times

    From the time we are born, relationships are constantly shaping who we are and how we engage with the world around us. Beginning with how we see ourselves, we develop a view of God and others that impacts the way we relate to our parents, navigate friendships, dating relationships and marriage.

    Relat(able) looks at relationships the way God intended them to be. Because He has gone to extraordinary lengths to relate to us, we have the potential to build incredible relationships with one another. Embracing God's love and receiving His grace changes the way we relate to him, our family, our friends, and ourselves.

    Pastor and author, Louie Giglio explores the fundamental question of what makes us relatable to others. He shows how God can change our perspective on relationships, bring us peace in the midst of conflict, and help us restore relationships that seem broken beyond repair.

    Week of June 26–week of July 24
    $10 per person/$15 at the door ($5 if you already have the study guide)

    Childcare will be provided for Nursery–age 8. $5 for 1 child; $10 for 2 or more children. Only one childcare registration per family is needed. Childcare costs cover all 5 weeks of the study.

    Inspiration

    We know the challenge doesn't stop here. Gather some inspiration from others to keep you going!

    Angela:
    Let me start at the very beginning of my journey. During the summer of 2014 I was admitted into the hospital for emergency abdominal surgery. This however was not my first surgery but in fact my second in six months. My first surgery had been messed up so badly that it created more issues causing me to have to undergo another 4-hour long procedure in Kenya, Africa. After my second surgery, I remember my doctor… continue reading

    John:
    My daughter and son-in-law gave birth to their first child. I was a new grandpa. I've entered a whole new season of life. Shortly thereafter I had my yearly physical. I was 51 years old, 320 pounds and having a conversation with my doctor as to whether or not bariatric surgery is something to consider. I was looking at high blood pressure and cholesterol medication… continue reading

    Mary:
    Is there such a thing as “food addiction”? Hi, my name is Mary and I’m a food addict! To some people, this may seem crazy. What? How can you be addicted to food? However, for some of us, this term “food addict” really hits home. We do not understand why we cannot stop eating; we hate our bodies and ourselves because we cannot stop. If this resonates with you, I invite you to read my story of experience, strength, and hope… continue reading

    Jeff:
    Bondage. That’s the only way I can describe being obese and out of shape. No matter how you look at it, bondage is not a good place to be. I don’t think I ever felt like I was NOT in bondage growing up for some reason. I never felt truly free until recently. It’s a journey I’m so grateful for. The easiest way for me to describe this journey is… continue reading

    Amy:
    I heard the sirens behind me; I looked up and saw the flashing lights of the police car. A wave of relief came over me. Getting out of the car, I exclaimed in slurred speech, “Boy, am I glad to see you”. I was drunk, lost and almost out of gas. I was disoriented and had been driving aimlessly on the back roads of Ohio for over 2 hours. I was arrested for DWI with a blood level of .19. This was the absolute best day of my life… continue reading

    Annamaria:
    In November 2008, I started having health problems. It was the week after Scott and I came back from Las Vegas, I was having bad headaches and pain on my right eyelid. I thought maybe I had a stye on my eyelid so went to the Doctor. They gave me drops but it wasn't going away… continue reading

    Rick:
    When I was growing up, staying in good physical shape and avoiding over-eating were not things that I ever worried about… because these things kind of took care of themselves! Eating healthy and getting plenty of exercise was the norm in my life. Getting plenty of rest, now that may have been another story since my life was very full of activity… continue reading

    Shawn:
    I need this challenge to work. I have completed I don’t know how many biggest loser contests, diets, and exercise programs only to find myself in the same unhealthy lifestyle. You see that is how I do it, I work hard for two to three weeks, and then once I see any results I stop. I have a unique story when it comes to health and fitness because it has been a part of my life for the past 20 plus years, yet I continue to find as many excuses as I can to why I do not exercise or eat better… continue reading

    Vincent:
    Here's a little background. My 26yr old daughter has "IgA nephropathy" (nuh-FROP-uh-thee), which according to the Mayo Clinic is also known as Berger's Disease and is a kidney disease that occurs when an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) lodges in your kidneys. This results in local inflammation that, over time, may hamper your kidneys' ability to filter wastes from your blood. There is no family history, no environmental factors that can be pointed to, and no lifestyle factors… continue reading

    Ben:
    My wife, Kari, and I started working towards healthier living in February (before it was cool). We removed carbs from our diet, reduced portions and cut our calories to about 1,000 a day. We also started exercising for 30 minutes a day using a DVD, 21 Day fix. Then, about a month ago… continue reading

    DivorceCare

    DivorceCare for Adults

    We know how difficult it can be to go through a separation or divorce. That's why we offer this seminar to provide you with ways to heal and a supportive group full of those of us experiencing the same things. Because each week is self-contained, you can start at any time.

    Divorce Care is currently taking a short break. Please contact Mary Bach at 410-877-1824 to find out when our next session will be kicking off or if you have any questions. You'll be able to register for our next session here soon!

     


    DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K)

    Separation and divorce can be difficult times for kids as well. This session runs at the same time as DivorceCare for adults so your children are learning at the same time as you. We'll help your kids understand their feelings, express their emotions appropriately, and develop coping skills. DC4K is for kids 5–12 years of age.

    DC4K is currently taking a short break. Please contact Mary Bach at 410-877-1824 to find out when our next session will be kicking off or if you have any questions. You'll be able to register for our next session here soon!
