 Living Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God

Do you truly believe - in a life-altering, awe-inspiring, dream-changing way - that the God of the universe loves you? Living Crazy Love will help you embrace God's intense, relentless love and watch that love transform every aspect of your being.

Francis Chan's thought-provoking teaching will help you pursue God as you never have before as you grapple with the hard question about the love of God and how that love would change the way you live. After all, the Christian journey is about so much more than what we've made it to be - and once we truly encounter God's love, we will never be the same.

Living Crazy Love will assist each individual to move beyond the status quo and pursue the relentless, all-powerful love of God! In this insightful workbook study, Chan offers thought-provoking teachings that will help you live like never before - selflessly and Christlike.

At First Place 4 Health, we believe, committed, authentic community changes everything.  Without someone to lean on when things get tough, we are often tempted to be too hard on ourselves, or even quit entirely.  We're more able to press onward in the face of difficulty.  We believe that after Christ, community is the most powerful catalyst for tangible, sustainable change in our health.  It's the difference-maker in nearly every area of our lives; as Ecclesiastes says, a cord of three strands is not easily broken.  Walking hand-in-hand motivates us, encourages us, and unites us in our journey toward wellness. 

What’s unique about First Place 4 Health?

  • Christ-centered priorities: Bible study, prayer and Scripture memory
  • Choices for health: Addressing the whole person—emotions, mind, body, and spirit
  • Community: Support and accountability through small groups

First Place 4 Health offers a series of bible studies that address many issues of everyday life and provide opportunities for growth in Christ. Members complete a weekly Bible study which—combined with prayer and Scripture reading—helps to impart God's strength, empowering members to overcome temptation and make long-lasting lifestyle changes.

How to join our First Place 4 Health group

The First Place 4 Health group can be joined at any time, during either semester.  They meet on Sundays from 5-7 pm in Room 5.  Please call the church office at (979)798-2340 to sign up.

 

 

Find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce

DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone.

DivorceCare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You will learn how to heal from the deep hurt of divorce and discover hope for your future.

You don’t have to go through it alone

Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before.

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

A Seminar with Experts

During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, and on-location video.

A Support Group with Focus

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

How to join our DivorceCare group

The DivorceCare group can be joined at any time, during either semester.  They meet on Sundays from 5-7 pm in Room 8, for 13 weeks. Cost is $10.  Please call the church office at (979)798-2340 to sign up.

 

 

It hurts to lose someone. Find help at GriefShare.

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

How GriefShare works

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. GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

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

Video seminar with experts

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 television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus

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.

Personal study and reflection

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.
