Change Your Home, Change Your Life

with Rhonda Bennett 

It’s never too late for a makeover! Change the word “home” for “life” and all these interactive exercises will help us look back, assess, create and formulate a plan to change our lives this year.  We will have a home and a life that truly reflects God’s purpose and design.

"All that Rhonda shared is just too good to keep to ourselves. I have already shared the message with four different people and would love to share it soon w/the women from my church. I can't thank you enough; the weekend was another life-changing event." York, Maine participant

A Journey With God's Presence: The Holy Spirit and the Temple of God

with Jewel Hyun 

The Holy Spirit and the Temple have been the marks of God's presence with his people since Creation. God's indwelling Spirit is crucial to Christian living. However, the Holy Spirit is probably the least understood member of the Trinity. We will study the significance of God's presence and make important applications to our lives and ministries.
