The Mission of Jesus Study - Lake Park

Adult Class, Lake Park
Wednesday, Mar 08, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesdays, March 8-April 12
6:30-8pm
Location: Lake Park Campus
Leader: Ray Butler
Cost: $11 (plus a small convenience fee)

It's easy to think of the Bible as a collection of short stories, but each one makes up a greater story ­- one of a God who created the universe and entrusted it to human beings to care for it. They were unfaithful, and the earth fell back into chaos and sin. But God didn't give up on His creation; He decided to redeem it, preparing the way through His covenant with Israel and later sending His only son, Jesus, to become the cornerstone of it all through His life, death, resurrection and ascension.

What did this mean for a people oppressed by the Roman Empire, and what does it mean for believers today? Follow the rabbis through the world of Jesus, hiking through the Galilee region, exploring the ruins of Rome and kneeling on the stones of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as you discover how the Gospel of Jesus confronts the gospel of Imperial Rome. 

There will also be a showing of the film, "The True Easter Story," by Ray Vander Laan.

1) Social Connection – A grown-up tea party! A place where women can talk, laugh and enjoy just being together while also enjoying yummy drinks and treats.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

3) Spiritual Connection – Teacup swap! Each woman will bring a teacup and will place a personal prayer request inside of it. At the end of the evening, every woman will take home someone else’s teacup and prayer request and will pray for that woman over the next month.

The Mission of Jesus Study - Lake Park

Adult Class, Lake Park
Wednesday, Mar 15, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesdays, March 8-April 12
6:30-8pm
Location: Lake Park Campus
Leader: Ray Butler
Cost: $11 (plus a small convenience fee)

It's easy to think of the Bible as a collection of short stories, but each one makes up a greater story ­- one of a God who created the universe and entrusted it to human beings to care for it. They were unfaithful, and the earth fell back into chaos and sin. But God didn't give up on His creation; He decided to redeem it, preparing the way through His covenant with Israel and later sending His only son, Jesus, to become the cornerstone of it all through His life, death, resurrection and ascension.

What did this mean for a people oppressed by the Roman Empire, and what does it mean for believers today? Follow the rabbis through the world of Jesus, hiking through the Galilee region, exploring the ruins of Rome and kneeling on the stones of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as you discover how the Gospel of Jesus confronts the gospel of Imperial Rome. 

There will also be a showing of the film, "The True Easter Story," by Ray Vander Laan.

As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ so that He is seen in us. Christians should be the most humble people on earth, but we must understand that humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less. It's easier said than done!

The Mission of Jesus Study - Lake Park

Adult Class, Lake Park
Wednesday, Mar 22, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesdays, March 8-April 12
6:30-8pm
Location: Lake Park Campus
Leader: Ray Butler
Cost: $11 (plus a small convenience fee)

It's easy to think of the Bible as a collection of short stories, but each one makes up a greater story ­- one of a God who created the universe and entrusted it to human beings to care for it. They were unfaithful, and the earth fell back into chaos and sin. But God didn't give up on His creation; He decided to redeem it, preparing the way through His covenant with Israel and later sending His only son, Jesus, to become the cornerstone of it all through His life, death, resurrection and ascension.

What did this mean for a people oppressed by the Roman Empire, and what does it mean for believers today? Follow the rabbis through the world of Jesus, hiking through the Galilee region, exploring the ruins of Rome and kneeling on the stones of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as you discover how the Gospel of Jesus confronts the gospel of Imperial Rome. 

There will also be a showing of the film, "The True Easter Story," by Ray Vander Laan.

Ever tried to run away from God? Can a mere man hide from the presence of an all-knowing, all-powerful God? God used a reluctant prophet to tell an evil city of His compassion for them. When God calls you to deliver a message to someone you don't love, will you run, get angry, or comply? Would it take a great calamity, earthquake, or flood for God to get YOUR attention?

Join us in this class as we earnestly seek to hear His voice.

As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ so that He is seen in us. Christians should be the most humble people on earth, but we must understand that humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less. It's easier said than done!

The Mission of Jesus Study - Lake Park

Adult Class, Lake Park
Wednesday, Mar 29, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesdays, March 8-April 12
6:30-8pm
Location: Lake Park Campus
Leader: Ray Butler
Cost: $11 (plus a small convenience fee)

It's easy to think of the Bible as a collection of short stories, but each one makes up a greater story ­- one of a God who created the universe and entrusted it to human beings to care for it. They were unfaithful, and the earth fell back into chaos and sin. But God didn't give up on His creation; He decided to redeem it, preparing the way through His covenant with Israel and later sending His only son, Jesus, to become the cornerstone of it all through His life, death, resurrection and ascension.

What did this mean for a people oppressed by the Roman Empire, and what does it mean for believers today? Follow the rabbis through the world of Jesus, hiking through the Galilee region, exploring the ruins of Rome and kneeling on the stones of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as you discover how the Gospel of Jesus confronts the gospel of Imperial Rome. 

There will also be a showing of the film, "The True Easter Story," by Ray Vander Laan.

What is Teacups?

This is a monthly gathering of women with the purpose of connecting in three ways:

1) Social Connection – A grown-up tea party! A place where women can talk, laugh and enjoy just being together while also enjoying yummy drinks and treats.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

3) Spiritual Connection – Teacup swap! Each woman will bring a teacup and will place a personal prayer request inside of it. At the end of the evening, every woman will take home someone else’s teacup and prayer request and will pray for that woman over the next month.

Growth Mindset and Emotional Intelligence - Pathway to a Healthy Life

Charlotte Campus, Life Care Center
Saturday, Apr 08, 2017 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Location: Lower FLC
Cost: $30.86 (includes maintenance fee)

God created people as emotional beings. Nothing stirs emotions like the dynamics in relationships, but interactions and reactions are often based on a fixed mindset and mismanaged emotions. God desires for us to learn and grow in relationship to Him and each other.

Dr. Shelley Thompkins, a nationally known speaker and member of Central, will explain how a “growth mindset” can help one navigate through life’s challenges. She’ll also offer strategies for developing emotional intelligence through self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management – which all lead to a healthier and more enjoyable life.

Thompkins' topics of expertise include "Leading with Emotional Intelligence," "Thriving Through the Holding Patterns of Your Life," and "Pursuing Your Purpose With a Passion." She has designed, developed and delivered more than 600 trainings/seminars worldwide, and serves with various community organizations throughout Charlotte.

You will gain more from this seminar by taking a free online assessment, found here. Please print your results and bring a copy.

Leader: Karen Shue

Women of Grace, formerly known as Women of the Word, will continue the same Anne Graham Lotz format as we study "10 steps to Humility."

God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ.

As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ so that He is seen in us. Christians should be the most humble people on earth, but we must understand that humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less. It's easier said than done! Come join us for a 10-week study on 10 Ways To Humble Yourself.

The Mission of Jesus Study - Lake Park

Adult Class, Lake Park
Wednesday, Apr 12, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesdays, March 8-April 12
6:30-8pm
Location: Lake Park Campus
Leader: Ray Butler
Cost: $11 (plus a small convenience fee)

It's easy to think of the Bible as a collection of short stories, but each one makes up a greater story ­- one of a God who created the universe and entrusted it to human beings to care for it. They were unfaithful, and the earth fell back into chaos and sin. But God didn't give up on His creation; He decided to redeem it, preparing the way through His covenant with Israel and later sending His only son, Jesus, to become the cornerstone of it all through His life, death, resurrection and ascension.

What did this mean for a people oppressed by the Roman Empire, and what does it mean for believers today? Follow the rabbis through the world of Jesus, hiking through the Galilee region, exploring the ruins of Rome and kneeling on the stones of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as you discover how the Gospel of Jesus confronts the gospel of Imperial Rome. 

There will also be a showing of the film, "The True Easter Story," by Ray Vander Laan.

Tuesdays, March 21-May 23
6:45-8:30pm
Location: Family Life Center Seminar Room
Cost: $15
Leader: Karen Shue

Women of Grace, formerly known as Women of the Word, will continue the same Anne Graham Lotz format as we study "10 steps to Humility."

God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ.

As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ so that He is seen in us. Christians should be the most humble people on earth, but we must understand that humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less. It's easier said than done! Come join us for a 10-week study on 10 Ways To Humble Yourself.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

To help women connect in a deeper way with God, each other, and themselves (see Matthew 22:37-39).

What is Teacups?

This is a monthly gathering of women with the purpose of connecting in three ways:

1) Social Connection – A grown-up tea party! A place where women can talk, laugh and enjoy just being together while also enjoying yummy drinks and treats.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

3) Spiritual Connection – Teacup swap! Each woman will bring a teacup and will place a personal prayer request inside of it. At the end of the evening, every woman will take home someone else’s teacup and prayer request and will pray for that woman over the next month.

If you would like to take part, please register and you will be contacted by a teacup ministry leader.

Tuesdays, March 21-May 23
6:45-8:30pm
Location: Family Life Center Seminar Room
Cost: $15
Leader: Karen Shue

Women of Grace, formerly known as Women of the Word, will continue the same Anne Graham Lotz format as we study "10 steps to Humility."

God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ.

As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ so that He is seen in us. Christians should be the most humble people on earth, but we must understand that humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less. It's easier said than done! Come join us for a 10-week study on 10 Ways To Humble Yourself.

Tuesdays, March 21-May 23
6:45-8:30pm
Location: Family Life Center Seminar Room
Cost: $15
Leader: Karen Shue

Women of Grace, formerly known as Women of the Word, will continue the same Anne Graham Lotz format as we study "10 steps to Humility."

God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ.

As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ so that He is seen in us. Christians should be the most humble people on earth, but we must understand that humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less. It's easier said than done! Come join us for a 10-week study on 10 Ways To Humble Yourself.

Issues we'll address include anger, loneliness, financial survival, kid care and forgiveness - to name just a few. Whether you've been separated only one day or divorced 20+ years, this is a great place to start your healing.

You will hear from nationally recognized Christian experts in the field of divorce and recovery. You'll also receive a guidebook to be used while viewing the video presentations, and you'll be connected to a small group for discussion time following the video.

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Tuesdays: January 31, February 28, March 28, April 25 and May 23
Leader: Sherry Harris

Come empty, be filled … with food, fun, fellowship and faith.

To help women connect in a deeper way with God, each other, and themselves (see Matthew 22:37-39).

What is Teacups?

This is a monthly gathering of women with the purpose of connecting in three ways:

1) Social Connection – A grown-up tea party! A place where women can talk, laugh and enjoy just being together while also enjoying yummy drinks and treats.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

3) Spiritual Connection – Teacup swap! Each woman will bring a teacup and will place a personal prayer request inside of it. At the end of the evening, every woman will take home someone else’s teacup and prayer request and will pray for that woman over the next month.

If you would like to take part, please register and you will be contacted by a teacup ministry leader.

Women of Grace - Tuesday Evening (spring session)

Charlotte Campus, Women
Tuesday, May 23, 2017 6:45 pm - 8:30 pm
Tuesdays, March 21-May 23
6:45-8:30pm
Location: Family Life Center Seminar Room
Cost: $15
Leader: Karen Shue

Women of Grace, formerly known as Women of the Word, will continue the same Anne Graham Lotz format as we study "10 steps to Humility."

God wants us to find fullness in Him, not the things of this world. We will do this by trying to understand the depth of His love for us, which comes by realizing the importance of reading His Word, along with prayer, worship and knowing the Holy Spirit in all His fullness so that we experience a deeper, richer relationship with Christ.

As we study together, our ultimate goal is to be filled to where we are overflowing with Christ so that He is seen in us. Christians should be the most humble people on earth, but we must understand that humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less. It's easier said than done! Come join us for a 10-week study on 10 Ways To Humble Yourself.

We hope you’ll join us and see how God will inspire, encourage and strengthen us all as we gather on these Sundays. There is much in store for you … including a great light breakfast. Couples with children, you can drop them off at the nursery or their respective CSM venues before coming to Couples Connect. CSM workers will be aware that children may be dropped off after the typical 8:30 starting time.

This Sunday, we'll hear from Central's own David and Ruth Marino, who are missionaries in Greece. They'll be sharing their story.

CSM workers will be aware that children may be dropped off after the typical 8:30 starting time.

This Sunday, we'll hear from Central's own David and Ruth Marino, who are missionaries in Greece. They'll be sharing their story.

There’s a buzz around Central’s Charlotte campus about an opportunity for people just like you! Couples Connect is designed to provide a forum where young families (20s & 30s is the guideline, not the rule) can connect and grow together in Christ. We meet together once a month on Sunday mornings from 9-10am in the Varsity Café.

We hope you’ll join us and see how God will inspire, encourage and strengthen us all as we gather on these Sundays. There is much in store for you … including a great light breakfast. Couples with children, you can drop them off at the nursery or their respective CSM venues before coming to Couples Connect. CSM workers will be aware that children may be dropped off after the typical 8:30 starting time.

This Sunday, we'll hear from Central's own David and Ruth Marino, who are missionaries in Greece. They'll be sharing their story.

Oh, one more thing: Go ahead and invite other young couples you may know to join us! We can’t wait to see you there!

Couples Connect

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus, Couples, Marriage Enrichment
Sunday, Feb 11, 2018 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Second Sundays of the month, 9-10am
Location: Varsity Building Cafe

There’s a buzz around Central’s Charlotte campus about an opportunity for people just like you! Couples Connect is designed to provide a forum where young families (20s & 30s is the guideline, not the rule) can connect and grow together in Christ. We meet together once a month on Sunday mornings from 9-10am in the Varsity Café.

We hope you’ll join us and see how God will inspire, encourage and strengthen us all as we gather on these Sundays. There is much in store for you … including a great light breakfast. Couples with children, you can drop them off at the nursery or their respective CSM venues before coming to Couples Connect. CSM workers will be aware that children may be dropped off after the typical 8:30 starting time.

This Sunday, we'll hear from Central's own David and Ruth Marino, who are missionaries in Greece. They'll be sharing their story.

Oh, one more thing: Go ahead and invite other young couples you may know to join us! We can’t wait to see you there!
