A Life of Worship
Worship is so much more than a song or a church service. It's a powerful encounter with God that fundamentally changes us. We'll be exploring the effects a life of worship can have for you and how you can incorporate it more into your own rhythms. We will have a time of Q&A at the end.

Modern Slavery: Human Trafficking
Human trafficking exists and is happening all over our world. People are being sold, abused and exploited. If you are interested in learning about this epidemic and how you can get involved in raising awareness, come to this work shop! ““The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord 's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭61:1-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Reaching the Nations with the Love of Jesus
Today, there are still 2.8 billion people who have no access to the Gospel. 66,000 people will die today without ever having heard the Good News. That’s crazy! In some towns in the United States there are churches on every corner. What can we do to change this reality? In Matthew 28 Jesus calls us to “Go and make disciples of every nation.” We have a part to play in helping people know Jesus. 
Do you feel like God has placed a calling on your heart to reach the nations? Or are you just curious of what God is doing among the unreached peoples of the earth?  
Come find out crazy ways you can join God’s awesome plan for reaching every tribe, tongue and nation!

Rule of Life
Christian disciples follow Jesus. But what makes discipleship run deep? Is it following Jesus by whim? desire? Brilliant ideas? Or is there an order? A Rule of Life is an orderly path of discipleship. The Anglican Way of following Jesus offers a brilliant Rule of Life to disciples of all ages—it is the Life of Christ Himself: as a prism can refract a beam of light into a rainbow spectrum, and as an architect shapes a room which in turn shapes its inhabitants, so the life of Christ, refracted into the spectrum of the Christian Year, shapes those who embrace a Prayer Book Spirituality. The best things in life tend to the real, rather than the virtual—and thus there are lots of lonely people in a hyper-connected world. Young Americans seem hungry for a Rule of Life that involves other people in real community—along with a faith to believe and a place to belong. Learn how God’s Old Testament calendar finds its way through the prism of Jesus into a colorful Prayer Book Spirituality which Young Anglicans can adopt as a meaningful, lifelong, catholic, and evangelical Rule of Life.

What’s The “Big Deal” About Abortion, Anyway? The Real Culprit That Is Deteriorating Family, Relationships, and Life
Choice is a flattering word – we see it all over the news, especially lately with abortion restrictions being passed in several states. Whether you know nothing about abortion, or you consider yourself an expert, we’ll hit on all the basics and dig deeper into what the “big deal” is with abortion, especially as a Christian. Because here’s the truth: behind every abortion is a little boy or girl, whose life was brutally ended in the name of "choice." In this workshop, we’ll take a real look at what abortion is doing to our country, and how being against abortion is not about choice – it’s about life, protecting it, and protecting our relationships, families, and those that Jesus cares the most about.
