Downtown Equipping: Soul Care
Apr

to May 20

Downtown Equipping: Soul Care

Sundays, April 15 - May 20 | 9a
Soma Downtown | conference room

Scripture teaches that, as the body of Christ, we depend on one another as we follow Jesus together. Because we need one another in our walk with Christ, Scripture calls us to care for one another's spiritual well-being. This is part of what we call soul care.

This equipping course will teach a simple but profound model of how people change and equip you with practical skills to help others grow in Christlikeness.

We'll use Paul Tripp's Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands as a reference through this cohort; you will need to buy your own copy.

Email David Webb with any questions.

Recovery Workshop: Portraits of a Family

When: Saturday, February 24 | 9-11:30a
Where: Soma Midtown | 2815 E 62nd St

Our adult narrative began with our families’ backgrounds and legacies. This framed a picture of who we are and what the world is through our family roles, rules and relationships. But it may not be the right story - the story of our lives as God sees it. Maturing means both understanding and owning how our families have shaped us, and letting God reshape us with his grace, his truth, and his movement in our lives.

During this workshop we will:

  • Acknowledge our family background without having that define your life
  • How to rework personal and family dynamics to bring about godly movement and grace
  • Understand the way that we are able bring a new expression of God’s truth into our daily lives

Childcare will be available for this.

Justice 101

Justice 101 is designed to offer a biblical perspective on poverty and share practical tools for walking in relationship with the materially poor. Phil will cover topics such as: Where do I direct a poor person when they approach me for help? How do I serve a poor person with dignity? How do I engage the materially poor in meaningful relationships?

Training time will include lunch; but childcare will not be available.
