Video Discussion Series: When Changing Nothing Changes Everything

We are facing change here at KOG and our personal lives are full of change. We often face circumstances that we cannot change: a job we are forced to keep; a relationship that did not work out; a decision we cannot take back. In this 8 session series, Laurie Polich Short reveals how even if we can’t change our circumstances, we can still make a change in our life by the way we see it. With the help of 4 “lenses”, she shows how to access God’s perspective on our circumstances, which can impact the way we live. In each session, Laurie opens the scriptures to reveal how this broader perspective can shape your decisions and impact. The study is full of biblical wisdom and personal stories. The accompanying book is available from many vendors and forms. A Discussion Guide will be provided. Pr. Rachael will have a limited number of books available for $10 donation.

Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Skeptics dismiss the Jesus of the Gospels by claiming there is no evidence in the case for Christ. Lee Strobel disagrees. The former legal journalist and one-time atheist knows to ask tough questions. His own search for truth about Jesus led him to faith in Christ.

In this revised six-session study, participants will journey along with Strobel on a quest for the truth about Jesus. Rejecting easy answers, you will sift through fascinating historical evidence as you weigh compelling expert testimony.


A Parent’s Small Group & Bible Study

Wednesdays |7:00-8:15pm | in the Multi-Purpose Room

The goal of this group is to provide each other with support and advice for pre-k thru prom, as well as a time set aside to pray for our kids and each other. We will meet during guitar ensemble & Youth Challenge night on Wednesdays.

During our study & prayer time, we will be studying the same passage from the book of James as the youth attending Challenge (grades 7-12) will be. The hope being that you will then be able to have a follow-up discussion with your teen. Teen not required!
