Your 6th-12th graders are invited to participate at Harvest Youth during this time.  Child care is provided for infants through 5th grade.

DESCRIPTION:
 “Have you ever thought of Jesus as the greatest philosopher to ever live? Me neither, until I listened to a lecture series on the world’s greatest philosophers. Who better to tell us how to find peace and happiness than our Creator. He made us, and he knows how we think.
If you ask a hundred people what they want in life, you will get a hundred different answers. When you analyze those answers, you will find that everyone wants the same thing: to be happy, and their answers are what they think will bring them happiness. But, very few people ever find true, lasting happiness. Why not? Because they are looking for happiness in the wrong places.
Jesus tells us how to find that happiness in the Bible, but he taught using parables and it is up to us to interpret those parables.
The group will discuss the teachings of Jesus to learn the steps to achieving lasting happiness. It is a process, not a one-time, dramatic experience. It requires daily prayer, meditation, and study. And, it requires that we change. It isn’t easy, but now is the time to get started.
By discussing the scriptures in a group, you will learn that you are not alone in how you feel. Many people share the same experiences, concerns, fears, and misunderstandings.
This group will focus on parents with children at home. You will find that by sharing your experiences and studying together, the members of the group will form bonds that last a lifetime.
It is up to you to take the first step. Register or ask questions by contacting group co-facilitators Vicki or Ron Buchanan (see above). Please commit to attend for at least four weeks to gain enough insight to begin to see the overall concept. Be patient. It takes time to change but think about the rewards of leading a truly happy life. Think about how your attitude impacts your spouse, children, friends, neighbors, and even strangers. It will be worth the effort.” -- Ron Buchanan, group co-facilitator

GOALS: 

  • Learn Jesus’ road map to happiness.
  • Share experiences, joys, fears and concerns. (You are not alone.)
  • Bond with other parents.
  • Support one another.
  • Socialize together.
