Breakout Options

1 - Revive Youth Ministry
Facilitated by Pastor Leah Neimetz & Team
Students 6th-12th grade

2 - Topic of Study: Discerning the Voice of God
Whisper by Mark Batterson
Facilitated by Pastor Michele Thompson
Open to everyone

Many people have a tough time believing that God still speaks. We’ve learned from Scripture that God spoke to His people in ancient times and in mysterious ways, but how do we hear His voice now? The truth is God still communicates with His people, but He often speaks in a whisper—not to make it difficult to hear Him, but to draw us close.

In this 4-session series, Mark Batterson teaches what it means for Christians to discern the voice of God in their lives. He will introduce the seven love languages of God—each of them unique and entirely divine. By learning to tune in and decipher each language, Mark equips believers to hear God’s guidance and grow closer to Him.

God is speaking. Do you know how to listen?

3 - Topic of Study: The Five Passions of Authentic Manhood
Five Star Man by Neil Kennedy
Facilitated by Chuck Thompson & Pastor Jordan Neimetz
Open to men only

When God created Man, he placed within him a deep reservoir of purpose. Flowing within that reservoir is a commodity worth more than gold. It truly is the currency of your life. If you can gain understanding of it, you will never again be concerned about the subsistence level of living–clothes, cars, and cottages. You will be able to focus on what really matters–which is the purpose of your existence as an authentic man.
