Are you longing to discover where you are going on your spiritual journey and how you will become a deeply committed Christian? Whether you are new to the church or a long time Christian, this 3 week course is for you. We explore God's big picture for the world, embrace the message and mission of Jesus and engage in the great commandments -- to love God and love others.
Embark will assist you with the "why" of our church's mission, the "what" of your next steps and the "how" of your participation with God's redemptive plan in the world.
Tuesdays May 16–30 | 6:30-8:30pm | Room B206 | Building B
Led by: Chris Folmsbee

• Has your relationship with your spouse gone stale and you need a boost?
• Do you want to know how to build healthy relationships with a future mate?
• Would you like to relate better to a sibling, child or co-worker?
Building and maintaining healthy relationships are central to everyone’s contentment. How we relate to God, how we relate to ourselves, and how we relate to others is intertwined.
Join us for an interactive workshop as we discuss healthy relationships and maintaining healthy connections through different seasons of life. Sessions led by Grant Wood and Greg Ferguson, licensed counselors. Material will be the same on all three dates so choose the one that works for you.

As summer approaches and life slows down a little, it’s a great time to catch up on some reading in a warm spot on the patio or sitting poolside. Not a reader, or don’t have time to read? This is still for you!
Our Discipleship team will present four recommended books for you to enjoy and to help you keep growing. A great way to read while on the move is by audiobook. Check out Amazon, Kindle, Audible or a local library. Books are available for purchase in the Well Bookstore.
All four events will be in the Student Center, 6:30-8:30pm. Also live-streamed at online.cor.org. (please note: this is a different location from Sunday online worship). The class will be recorded and posted here, in case you miss a session!

One of the most often used and least understood phrases in the Christian faith is “the Kingdom of God.” Jesus spoke most often about it and we pray for it every week in our church services. However, what did Jesus mean when he talked about this kingdom? What did his followers understand when they heard him refer to it? Join Rev. Jeff Kirby for an informative study on this often ignored and misunderstood concept.
