On Thursday evening, October 3, we’ll meet again here at First Assembly for the chance to learn more and go deeper with people from our congregation!  We’re trying to connect with all the different places people are finding themselves in life.  We’ll have breakout sessions taught on the following subjects by the following speakers–

Thursday Evening (6:30pm to 8:30pm):
Dynamic Worship and Topical Breakout Sessions

Re|Engage:  *married couples (Gary and Juanita Thayer)
In Re|Engage you will explore ways to build communication, strengthen love and romance within a Christ-centered marriage.  Discover practical ideas for growing your relationship with your spouse.

Impress:  *parents (Tracy Bradford and hosted by Pastor Robby Bradford)
No one has more spiritual influence on the life of a child than parents!  Yet, many parents feel under-qualified and ill-equipped for the task of leading their children spiritually.  At the Impress breakout session, you will discover how dynamic families are led by parents who have a Deuteronomy 6:4-9 mindset.  Come discover practical ideas for at-home discipleship. 

Resolve:  *adults (Pastor Dwight Johns)
The Resolve breakout session takes a vulnerable, in-depth look at the root issues that feed relational conflicts in our lives and families.  You will hear stories of struggle, biblical obedience, and of relational redemption.  You’ll be encouraged and equipped to move forward and find wholeness for your life and relationships.

La Vida Hispana *Para Adultos (Carlos Garcia)
Esta sesion es para que adultos Hispanos puedan conectar y aprender del discipulado-en-casa para familias.  Los materiales y lideres van a comunicar en Espanol y enfocarse specificamente en los desafios unicos de como construir una casa centrada en El Senor.

The Empty Nesters *adults
Congratulations!  You’ve raised your kids and they are out of the nest!  Now What!?  At this breakout session you will uncover the blessings and challenges of the Empty Nester Life.  We’ll take an honest look at realities of parenting our adult children, grand parenting, and caring for our own aging parents.

Merge: *adults 20’s – 30’s (Pastor Adam & Sarah Howard)
This breakout session is for adults who are merging from post-high school life into early adult college and career and young married life.  You’ll learn practical principals for successful living as you merge into a life situation that includes the joys and challenges of home ownership, career and wealth building, dating and engagement, as well as marriage and family building.

1Life: *single adults (Pastor Linda Seiler & Angie Verissimo)
This breakout session is for adults who want to connect with other who are living the single Christian life.  In this session we will explore the in’s and outs of living the full life as a single adult both inside and outside of the church.

After this evening of learning and focus on Full Life for adults in different seasons, we’ll come back together on Friday evening with comedian Bob Smiley.  While the Full Life Conference is an event intended to be open to those outside our church, this event we expect to see well attended by people from throughout our region of Indiana.  Bob is nationally well-known for his explosive comedic gifts.  We’ll be laughing from 7-9PM that Friday night.  Details about Bob Smiley can be found by clicking here.

I’m really excited about this event, which I expect to take us to new heights in regard to family and healthy, full living!  You can learn more about children’s and student tracks, as well as details about registering by clicking here!  DON’T WAIT!  Click now!
