Summer is almost over! Isn’t it amazing how time flies? We hope you had a great summer filled with memories that will linger as we transition to the fall and all the back to school–and back to work–activities.

 

And just as those seasonal transitions are kicking into high gear, we’re kicking off our fall programming.

 

We’re excited to introduce you to all that’s happening at The Moody Church this Fall. Get involved in your church!

Parenting in a Sexualized World

Wednesdays beginning September 13, 6:45–8:00pm in Room 307

In this over-sexualized era, it is more vital than ever to raise up our children in biblical truth. Join us Wednesdays this fall as we seek to understand how to help our children hold to biblical guidelines for sexuality in a culture that denies the truth of the Bible. We’ll touch on relevant topics such as gender dysphoria, same-sex attraction, pornography, the sexualization of advertising, and more—all from a biblical worldview. And we’ll address the delicate balance needed to model loving responses to those in our lives who hold and promote unbiblical views.

Men's Ministry

Thursdays beginning September 14, 6:00–7:30am in Room 108

 

Have you examined your life lately?

 

We all need to pay the bills, have some fun, get ahead, and connect with other people. So, between the commuting, working, and hanging out, we find ourselves with very little downtime. We stay pretty busy – so busy that we don’t usually take the time to look ourselves in the eye and ask the hard questions.

 

Man In The Mirror gives the opportunity to do just that – ask the questions and take some action so that the guy looking back at us has a sense of rightness about the trajectory of his life.

 

Hot breakfast provided. Cost $12 for the required workbook.

Saturday Mornings, 7:30am, Room 103

 

King Solomon once said, “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” This gathering is an uncomplicated time of encouragement from God’s Word, sharing our journey, and encouraging one another in prayer.

The coffee is good; the company is better.

Compassion Ministry

Our mental health ministry seeks to provide support for persons with mental health diagnoses and their loved ones. We have the conviction that it is possible to live well in spite of having a mental health challenge because of the hope there is in Christ.

Our ministry utilizes Living Grace, a 16-week workbook that is a Christ-centered resource providing simple, innovative and grace-filled mental health solutions and community support for those experiencing a personal journey with depression, anxiety, or bi-polar.

This 16-week curriculum is split into two 8-week sessions. Once the curriculum has been completed participants are encouraged to join a peer-to-peer Thrive Group. 

Next Sessions:

Wednesdays | Room 301 | 6:45-8:00 PM

  • September 12 – October 31, 2018
  • March 6- April 24, 2019
