Parenting Workshop: The Character of God

We believe that parents are called to be the primary influencers of their children's spiritual lives. We also believe that it is no easy task! Depending on your own upbringing you may or may not have a clear vision of what it looks like to lead your child toward God. You may wonder: "How can I help my child gain a clear and true understanding of what Christianity is? How do we bring God into the conversation naturally? How do we answer tough questions?"As your church community, we hope to partner with you in answering those questions and giving you the confidence you need to lead your child well. That's why we are offering new Saturday morning workshops where we invite you to bring your child with you to see family discipleship in action and practice it for yourself. In each workshop, we will spend some time looking at a single topic we can impress upon our children, and we'll discuss how we might approach it with our young kids. Think of it as a peek behind the curtain into what they are experiencing in MecKidz each weekend for you to see and do at home!Our March workshop will focus on how we can lead our kids to know the character of God. If our desire is for them to choose a life long relationship with God, we need to start by helping them know what God is like. This month's workshop is recommended for kids ages 3 - 8 years.Note: This class is designed for an adult caregiver to attend alongside their child. We will lead you through some activities and crafts as we model how discipleship might look in the ordinary parts of your day. During the last part of our time together kids will have some playtime while we debrief class as adults.

The Writings (Big Picture Bible Study)
Mecklenburg Community Church
The Writings (Big Picture Bible Study)
In The Writings, we’re going to backtrack a bit in our chronological study of the Bible to tackle some poetic books and wisdom writing; specifically, we'll read the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs. We'll dive into the historical and cultural contexts of these books and learn how to properly interpret wisdom literature. This class is offered at two separate times:

-Mondays at 7 p.m. beginning January 22, Online (no class on 2/19)
-Thursdays at 10 a.m. beginning January 25, In Person and Live Streamed

*Participants can also opt to receive the class recordings rather than attend the live classes.

NOTE: The Big Picture Bible Study is an in-depth, chronological study of the whole Bible. In its entirety, it comprises 10 separate studies spread out over a two-year time frame. "The Writings" is the sixth study in the series, but new students will get caught up in the first week.
