Growing Strong in your Christian Identity: Being Instead of Doing

#SummerStrong Elective

Second and Fourth Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, with Jim Pennington

Too many Christians view their conversion to Christ as the end rather than the beginning of their Christian walk. They know how they came to Christ, but not what is supposed to happen next. But, if you want to grow to become a mature Christian, you need to view your faith story as a dynamic path to maturity. This elective will take a deep dive into what it means to be one with Christ. Hint: God’s positive and optimistic plan for your identity isn’t about doing; it’s about being.
