The Union We all have a story to tell, and we’ve all pondered the question of what legacy we’re leaving. Have you ever thought of telling your story as a film? A film is one of the few things that immortalizes our creativity. One of the hardest things about a creative project is often figuring out how and where to start. Join Ron Newcomb, The Indie Film Coach, for a day of exploring and training on how to write a screenplay. Ron will also be joined by a local professional screenwriter, Katherine Craddock, for an hour-long question and answer session. Living Faith members will be offered this workshop for the special price of $50.00. To register, please email Ron at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the discount link. For more details, see Pastor Leslie.
Releasing His Presence Worship Art
Many of you may not be aware but Pastor Barry has a hidden talent – he’s quite the accomplished artist. This month, Worship Art is excited to have him as our guest artist. Pastor Barry will be teaching on “Acrylics: Just the Beginning.” Some of the topics he will be covering include: starting to paint, brushes to use and their care, different acrylic mediums, canvas prep, palette layout and how to use a color wheel.

Beginning September 23, we’ll be hosting a Co-dependency group. Do you know what co-dependency is? Some of its characteristics are: bending over backwards to take care of others, not trusting our own feelings, feeling guilty for not doing enough, staying quiet to avoid arguments, staying in bad relationships or even sabotaging good ones, and having trouble with emotional intimacy. If you find relationships difficult, it may be that the root of the problem is co-dependency. If you experience any of these trends in your relationships, consider joining us - it is possible to have healthy and satisfying relationships! We’ll be meeting on Saturday mornings at 9am, September 23rd through November 18th. The cost to attend this group is $50.00 which covers the material. Please register online or at the Information Desk. For more details, contact Pastor Sally.
