Seminar Title: Being salt and light in politics
Details: The election is over. Let the politics begin. Thousands of believers have been inspired by the “SHOW UP” videos, but will we again default to the role of commentators and critiquers, or will we SHOW UP? Featuring material from Andy Flannagan’s book “Those Who Show Up”, discover the Biblical mandate, the open mission-field, and inspiring stories of those who already have. Including interactive and multi-media material – politics doesn’t have to be dull!
Seminar Title: Relationships & Sex Education: How can we protect and equip our children?
Details: Christian parents have the privilege and responsibility of bringing up their children in the training and instruction of the Lord. There are always challenges in doing this! How can we protect our children in their tender years and as they grow older, equip them to engage biblically and confidently with contemporary views in our society? How can parents work constructively with schools who may have different aims?
