IT STARTS WITH ME
"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you?"
- 2 Corinthians 13:5 NIV
Join us for a 5-day journey of self reflection as we grow as Christians, individually and collectively. Students will access readings and materials on our online event page then join their facilitator and peers nightly for lively discussion and thought provoking exercises.
This sessions' classes are described below:
Class A: Behind the Mask with Min. Deborah Wilson
It's one thing to wear a face covering during this pandemic, but altogether another to allow the past to mask our hopes, dreams and who we are purposed to be in Christ. This class will encourage us to unmask strongholds that keep us in bondage and identify ways God can use our past to help ourselves and others find freedom.

Class B: Transformation: Change ME, Oh God! with Rev. Kathy Bonapart
Things are drastically changing around us (COVID-19, police brutality, violence in Charlotte, etc.), many of which we have no control to change. But have we invited God to change things within us? This class will talk about change, vulnerability, and what God is trying to do in our lives.

Class C: Am I Christian? with Rev. Tara Gibbs
How can both liberals & conservatives, racists & anti-racists, pro-life & pro-choice, hateful & loving people all claim to be Christian and serve the same Jesus? Let's re-frame this time of social distancing from self-isolation to a time of self-inspection. It's time to self examine our beliefs. This class will help you define your theology (what you believe and don't believe about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Bible).
