Instructor: Matt Sherman
Starting Date: February 4th
Meeting info: Sundays: During 2nd service @ FFC
Description:  Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn—traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO RESPOND TO ALL THIS?

In Counter Culture,  author David Platt shows Christians how to actively take a stand on the most pressing social issues of our day. Drawing on compelling personal accounts from around the world, Platt presents an unapologetic yet winsome call for Christians to faithfully follow Christ into the cultural battlefield in ways that will prove both costly and rewarding.

SP18-08 – Girl Gone Wise by Mary Kassian & Brush Calligraphy Tutorials


Instructor: Kayla Berleth
Starting Date: Feb 12th
Meeting info: Mondays 6:30pm @ FFC in the Fellowship Hall
Description: Girls have gone wild! And we're not just talking about someone from a romance novel or a star from the latest hit movie. She's the girl next door, your best friend, or someone in your family.  She may even be you.
That's because the longing, the thrill, and the fun is real. Very real.  
Mary Kassian isn't naive to that.  But she knows there's another side to it--the devastation and heartache being wild can bring.  Her insights from Proverbs on the differences between a saucy, seductive Wild Thing and a smart, biblically-savvy Wise Thing is a must read. Every minute you spend here will help you--or someone you love--replace the emptiness and guilt of being wild with the power of living out God's spectacular design for women.   
 But be prepared.  This isn't your grandmother's handbook on etiquette.  It's God's Word powerfully unfolded by someone He's commissioned to speak the truth in love.  You'll be captivated, challenged, and impassioned to be far more than the world's model of the perfect woman.  You read this book and apply its principles and you'll become something your Heavenly Father and Friend has always intended you to be:  A Girl Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild.
