The Gospel of Matthew DVD
Facilitated by Allen Black, Eric Gentry, and David Jackson
This movie is one of the best presentations of Jesus, based on a word for word dramatization of the NIV translation of Matthew’s Gospel. Just over four hours long, showing it over a 9 week period will leave time each week for highlighting key aspects of Jesus’s life and teaching.
The Family You Always Wanted
Wouldn’t you love just one week without any conflict in your family? Have you ever stopped to figure out where the conflict and tension comes from? Chances are it isn’t because your kids are the worst in the church. We are going to spend six weeks together learning to love, lead, and discipline our children according to the way God made them, then set them free on a radical pursuit for God’s kingdom.
(Womnen) The Armor of God DVD by Priscilla Shirer
Facilitated by Nancy Black and Kaitlyn Frizzell
Every day an invisible war rages around you – unseen, unheard yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. The enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, mind, relationships and your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. Learning his strategies and being prepared are crucial for us as Christian women. This DVD study is Priscilla Shirer at her best and we hope you will join us. Workbooks will be available in class.
Teens: The RISING
The Rising is designed to be a refuge for students from all over the city. HYG opens its doors at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays during the school year for food and fun. The Rising is not offered during the summer because of the many mission trips, outreach opportunities, and group activities. Students can eat, play video games or sports, and hang out with friends and mentors. We gather together from 7:00-7:45 p.m. for exciting worship and a lesson designed to encourage and challenge. We want The Rising to be a time when students are empowered and equipped to make God the focal point of their lives. And we want it to be fun!
During the school year, our Nursery-6th graders have both small group and large group activities each week. They are involved in age-appropriate games, skits, and devotionals that help them understand God’s teachings. During the summer, they meet as a large group for active learning. Running shoes and comfortable clothes are a must for this age group! Group-led games include relays and other high action activities. Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man… That is our goal for this group. We work their minds and bodies, and we provide settings for them to build close relationships that will continue throughout their adolescent years.
