2016 Workshop

21st Century Issues: When Church Hurts

3/5/2016

When we are part of a local body, sooner or later we will be hurt. We will be hurt by leadership. We will be hurt by each other. We will be hurt as something we love is changed and as our expectations for what the church is supposed to be is challenged. We become disappointed, heart-broken and many times we feel betrayed. We get angry, depressed and either disconnect or retreat. Many never recover and fade into a luke-warm Christian existence. Others try sticking it out but never fully heal. There must be a better way! In this class Pastor Matty will be sharing biblical insight as well as personal stories and examples of dealing fruitfully with hurts in the church.
