EYE OF THE STORM SHORT-TERM GROUP
Join us for a 5-week short term group as we make connections and have conversation and discussion around our new series Eye of The Storm. 2020 has been the year of STORMS. We are in the midst of at least 4 right now - health, financial, social, and political. When storms hit our lives (and they are hitting now), Jesus invites us into the eye of the storm, which is a place where He gives us peace, provision, power and purpose. The storms are bigger than us, but they are not bigger than Jesus.

In the Eye of the Storm
By Max Lucado

If you've ever wondered if God in heaven can relate to you on earth, In the Eye of the Storm weaves together the four gospel books to illustrate how God knows exactly what it feels like to face a storm in one day: Jesus's crucifixion.
Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
By Angela Duckworth
In this instant New York Times bestseller, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed—be it parents, students, educators, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.”
Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Duckworth, now a celebrated researcher and professor, describes her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.

For those who follow Christ, there is one area in particular that deserves attention. It is giving into the temptation to turn inward, to give ourselves over to our emotions and felt needs in ways that aren’t spiritually healthy.
