Would you like to connect with people at church? We want to help you meet new people, eat good food, drink good coffee and learn about a new study opportunity. It’s all in a relaxed atmosphere in our Fellowship Room (near the gym. We’ll have greeters to guide you.) on October 21st, 2018 at 10am. We’ll have biscuits from Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits, coffee from Starbucks Coffee and of course Wally’s brownies. This group is designed with parents in mind, but is open to all.
You’ll have time to mingle and hear about a new study facilitated by Pastor Will called, “Happy? What is and how to find it.” It’s a video study by Pastor Matt Miofsky which means you don’t need to do any homework. Come check it out. You can read more below. And click here to let us know you’re coming.
Happy? What it is and how to find it
We all dream of being happy. If we could just lose the extra weight, get the job, buy the house, we could truly be happy. But over time, it begins to seem as though lasting happiness is unattainable. Despite our best efforts, true happiness will never be a reality for us. So how do we find lasting happiness and contentment in our lives? Maybe the answer isn’t in our own lives at all.
Matt Miofsky connects the existential question, “Am I happy?”, with basic theology and unexpected biblical texts. Starting with the book of Ecclesiastes, considering if any “thing” can make us happy, he explores the value of relationships, a forgiving lifestyle, living in the present, feeling gratitude, and learning to release control.
