New Coed Grief Share Group on Monday Nights, 6:30pm at the Pellissippi Campus

New Coed GriefShare Group on Monday Nights, 6:30pm at the Pellissippi Campus starting Monday, August 27, 2012.

Join us at fp CELEBRATE on Monday nights for this new Coed CelebrateU Growth Group study led by Kathleen Pyatt and Patsy Williams.

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments and on-location video.

After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Celebrate on Monday nights starts at 6:00pm with great food, then a time of awesome worship and a challenging message from a variety of engaging speakers, such as our very own Chad Funk the leader of our fp Celebrate Ministry. Following our corporate time together we have several Celebrate Recovery and Celebrate Growth Groups for you to plug into to be ministered to and help you navigate your next steps toward growth and in your walk with God.

New Coed Celebrate Growth Group on Monday Nights, 8:00pm at the Pellissippi Campus

New Coed Celebrate Growth Group – “Gospel Revolution: Recovering the Power of Christianity” by J.D. Greear starting Monday, June 18, 2012.

Join us at Celebrate on Monday nights for this new Coed Celebrate Growth Group study led by Davin Emerson.

Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this study, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God’s gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God.

The book’s core is a “gospel prayer” by which you can saturate yourself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release in you new depths of passion for God and take you to new heights of obedience to Him. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God will use you to bring His healing to the world.

Based on Greear’s newest book, Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary, the teaching centers on the idea that “the gospel is not just the way we begin in Christ; it is also the way we grow in Christ.”

Gospel Revolution is a DVD-driven 8 session study. Each of the sessions is a combination of live teaching and studio segments that enhance the message. At 18 to 23 minutes long, the session length works because the teaching is very compelling and will keep group members engaged. In addition, the Member Book includes a Video Guide (note-taking section) and Video Feedback (an opportunity to process and discuss the video). Check out this Video Trailer.

New Women’s Celebrate Growth Group on Monday Nights, 8:00pm at the Pellissippi Campus

New Women’s Group starting Monday June 18 @ 8:00 pm – “So Long, Insecurity” By: Beth Moore

Join us at Celebrate on Monday nights for this new Women’s Celebrate Growth Group study led by Allison Dunford.

So Long, Insecurity, by Beth Moore, will strike a chord with women everywhere. Beth speaks truth into the lives of readers, showing them how to deal with their innermost fears, rediscover their God-given dignity, and develop a whole new perspective – a stronger sense of self. Women of all ages and backgrounds will resonate with this message of security and discover truths that will free them emotionally and spiritually and lead them to a better life as they walk with God.

In today’s image-saturated society, insecurity among women is reaching epidemic levels. We worry about everything-from our looks to our finances to our relationships. But it doesn’t have to be this way. It’s time to say, “So Long!” to insecurity and focus instead on becoming the Wives, Mothers, Sisters, Daughters and Friends God intends us to be.

fp Women come join us in this 10 Week study and learn how you can say “So Long, Insecurity”

New Women’s Celebrate Growth Group on Monday Nights, 8:00pm at the Pellissippi Campus

New Women’s Group starting Monday June 11 @ 8:00 pm – “Women With An Attitude”

Join us at Celebrate on Monday nights for this new Women’s Celebrate Growth Group study led by Luana Blanton.

Ladies you don’t have to let negative or unhealthy attitudes control you.

Many things in life can impact our attitudes: relationships gone bad, cross words between friends, difficulties with our parents, frustration with our children. But lingering anger, resentment or negativity usually hurts the one feeling it more than anyone else.

You can overcome negative attitudes and use attitude positively in your life. In this group, we’ll learn to:

•accept the truth of your attitude
•examine where it comes from
•be honest about how you use it
•be open to change
•be willing to forgive–even yourself
•be willing to feel something other than negatives when it comes to attitude

We also focus on other emotions as well such as shame and guilt. We discuss self-talk and how that effects our emotions, the use of “I” statements, and negative barriers to good communication. Other topics include perfectionism, forgiveness of others and ourselves, and making healthy choices in nutrition.

In addition to “Every Woman’s Guide to a Managing Your Anger, the facilitated discussion draws on materials from Joyce Meyers, “Healing Damaged Emotions” by David Seamands, Andy Stanley’s ” Enemies of the Heart”, and “Prayer Portions”.

This New group can help you face your attitudinal issues, move beyond them, and live the life you were meant to live. A life with greater peace…Just as God planned it.
