Difference Makers

Start Date: Sep 19, 2021

This 8 week class will focus on providing you with practical direction for influencing those with whom you are connected, at your workplace, in your neighborhood, or with your family and friends. This is about ordinary people making a kingdom difference in every day life, whether you are a stay-at-home parent, a mechanic, a grocery-store stocker, or any accountant. We will learn together what it means to show others a Jesus-looking God so that they might be naturally drawn to God’s love. You might be surprised by the simple ways that God can move through you to share God’s good news of freedom and life.

This eight week class will cover topics like:
• Sharing the Good News of a Good God
• Working together to share God’s love
• Paying attention to how God is at work in others
• Praying for others
• Responding to God’s leading
• Remaining present to people who need God’s love
