Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every hindrance and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith. For the joy that lay before him, he endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
What is refocus?
Each of us faces issues and situations in our lives that may seem hopeless. There are times where our lives seem beyond control. For some it is an addiction that cannot seem to be shaken. It may be a struggle with depression, anxiety, or emotional health. For others, it may be dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one or the pain of a traumatic event that keeps haunting you. Whatever it is, we can learn to ReFocus our eyes and our lives on Christ, our hope. ReFocus aims to help people who are experiencing hurt, brokenness, and dysfunction in a variety of ways that life presents a chance to re-discover their purpose and identity in Christ and have hope despite their circumstances.
When does refocus meet?
ReFocus will meet on Tuesday nights from February 6 until May 22. There will be a large group gathering that will feature a time of worship and a teaching on our topic of discussion for that night. Following the large group session, there will be a small group time for the different men's and women's groups that meet.
WhAt Groups are Available?
ReFocus takes a different approach to group ministry than the support groups or recovery groups that you may be familiar with. Rather than separating people into specific groups based on specific issues, we try to place people into diverse groups with people struggling with a variety of issues. Groups will be gender specific.
What should i expect?
You are coming to a place where you will be free of judgment. Each of our leaders has experienced freedom through Christ from a variety of backgrounds and issues. We believe that God wants to meet you here to have a life-changing encounter. Our goal is to point you to Christ. You can expect to experience the warmth and love of Jesus through our leaders and volunteers. You can expect each week to hear the Gospel taught with direct application to dealing with life's struggles and our personal hang-ups. You can expect an intimate encounter with Jesus through prayer and worship. You can expect to be with other broken people seeking hope, redemption, and restoration through Christ. Come expecting.
