In the Secret Place: Finding Our Father in Spiritual Disciplines (Options: 50 minute seminar on one topic or 3-5 seminar sessions/retreat)
Dive into Jesus’ teaching about Kingdom living and the “secret” to having a deep intimate relationship with God through a study of Matthew Chapter 6. Here Jesus instructs us on seeking, knowing and serving the Lord through practicing the spiritual disciplines as Jesus prescribes:
When you pray go to your Father in secret… When you give do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing so that your giving may be in secret…When you fast put oil on your head and wash your face so that it will not be obvious to others, but only your Father who sees in secret… And your Father who sees in secret will reward you!
It is In the Secret Place where we find Jesus is our One True Treasure, Our One True Friend and Our One True Love!
Forgiveness: The Ultimate Victory Dance (Options: 1 session of 50 minutes or 2 sessions of 30 minutes)
Why is forgiveness so hard? How can we triumph over un-forgiveness God’s way? Did you know that Forgiveness is both a condition we have in the Lord and a mission we have from the Lord? Learn to embrace the condition and embark on the mission— through this you will not just gain reconciliation of your relationships, but the chance to do the Ultimate Victory Dance!
No Greater Love:
There is no greater love but to lay down our life for others just as Jesus. This is a Bible study seminar that looks at Jesus’ encounters with individuals. We examine how Jesus’ main concern is compassion and life restoration for those in a broken world. In each encounter we see Him laying down His life and his rights in small ways in exchange for the life of others. The aim of these sessions are to behold the majesty of Jesus’ character and be moved to allow Him to shape us to His likeness in our interactions with the people we encounter in this broken world.
(This session will be shaped to your groups needs, but Monica works from a list of Jesus’ encounters with a wide variety of specific individuals.)
