Workshop 1: Creative Bible Study
How can you get excited about the word of God? How can Bible Study become important to you again? These are some of the questions we will be answering in this workshop. We are not going to just talk but try out several ways of Studying the Bible. Finding what best suits you because we are all different and what fits with one does not excite another.
Workshop 2: Girls for Christ – Mentoring Program
In research done by George Barna it was discovered that investing in the lives of our young people on a personal level is one of the best ways of keeping our young people in the church. If someone other than their parents or the pastor invests in them it can make a life changing difference in the lives of our young people. We are looking for women willing to invest time and energy to be that person. We will teach you how to do it and also what you can do. The Girls for Christ club is a wonderful way of connecting with our young girls.
English/Finnish translation will be provided (program in English).
Unfortunately this time we will not have babysitting.
