So often we think of prayer as something we do to break through to God - to get His attention and get Him to listen to us. But intimacy with God is His idea and prayer is His gift to us. Prayer is our response to the One who has called out to us and desires to be in a relationship with us. In this study, we will learn to respond to God's invitation to a life of deeper intimacy with Him.
Parenting is both a delight and a challenge. During this time of COVID, there are numerous added challenges: boredom, fighting, fear, etc. This class will be a place to share the challenges we are facing and ideas how we as parents can better deal with these issues.
Thursdays 6:30pm - Youth Room
led by Barbara (Ward) & Ray Hogan
Each of us mourns the death of a loved one differently. Whatever you are experiencing, you don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. Comfort can be found in sharing the pain, anger, depression and other emotions with others who have also experienced loss. This support group will be a space to care for each other and walk alongside one another as we process our pain.
Wednesdays 6:30pm -
Rosewood Worship Center
led by Prof. Kenya Davis Hayes & Pastor Bonny
Here is an opportunity to take a fresh look at the history of this nation, and trace the roots of systemic racism. Participants will watch one documentary each week pertaining to the church, slavery, wealth, and voting, and then get together to listen and share with one another. We will wrap up the class by discussing the book "Letter from the Birmingham Jail" by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Deep down, everyone wants to make a difference. But it is difficult for students to get past their own issues, problems, and distractions to see that their lives can count right now. Based in part on the book of Acts, we will see how God has uniquely created students with certain passions, talents, and interests to impact the world for Christ. Students share real-life stories on how they've spoken up, stepped out and made a difference around them.
Wednesdays 6:30pm -
Rosewood Social Hall
led by Devin & Gaby Mulder
We live in a world filled with chronic anxiety. Teenagers are bombarded with pressure from school, social media, a need to succeed, friendships, money, etc. This class will provide a much needed space to talk about life and faith in such an anxious world and will provide resources that offer transformation and hope.
The action starts at 6:30 p.m. for the entire family with an energetic worship time with Brad and the praise team and a drama performed by our own Rosewood players. This will be followed by time to get all of you settled on your streaming device (smart phone, tablet, iPad, chrome, laptop) where you will be invited to join a meeting with a small group leader in a class with your age group. SFN provides us with a wonderful opportunity for faith formation and fellowship with our Rosewood family.
Our theme this year is “In God’s Family,” where children will be learning from the book of Acts that God’s family is diverse and yet unified in Christ, a family that works together, cares about each other, grows in His Word and shares the Gospel with others as we gladly welcome new members.
