Breakout Sessions

As Christians, do we anticipate heaven with excitement? Do we know what the Bible says about heaven? How are we preparing for eternity during our lives on earth? Will we have meaningful worship, work and fellowship there? In this session, Melissa will explore these questions and more.

Heaven, Our Eternal HomeMelissa Franklin

It’s often easy to see God’s hand on us during good times. But is He faithful to us during times of hardship or tragedy? Come listen to Rachel’s personal testimony and be encouraged to know Christ’s blessing and joy through all circumstances of your life. .

God's Faithfulness: A TestimonyRachel Wiltse

In a time of gender confusion, we need clarity. The world's voices are loud but what does Scripture say about gender? And how are we, as Christians, to respond to people in our lives who are gender confused?

The Truth about GenderWendy Foulke

We know our young kids grow up quickly, but sometimes the days seem challenging and long. In this session, Audrey will motivate us to find joy in our motherhood and to have fun with the little ones God has given us.

As Christians, we have 24/7 access to the Lord of the universe. Yet we often struggle to pray consistently in the midst of our daily distractions. In this breakout session, Marlisa will focus on the power of prayer and will equip us with tools to jump start a vibrant prayer life.

Moving MountainsMarlisa Sanchez

Whether you have been married for 6 months or 60 years, this breakout session is for you. We all want our marriages to be blessed and vibrant, but that doesn’t “just happen.” Rachele will focus on how to keep our marriage fresh, even in the midst of daily living.

Keeping the Spark in your MarriageRachele Mickel

We all need to eat. But food can become more than something that simply nourishes us. In this session, Julie will consider how to transform destructive eating patterns–like compulsive overeating, constant dieting, food focus and emotional eating–to habits that are healthy and glorify Christ.

Viewing Food RightlyJulie Morgan

As we are in relationships with others–with our family, friends, or church–we inevitably will suffer hurt of various types. Erin will explore how we can deal with this hurt in a biblical way and find victory through Christ.
