Storyline Group @ FBCSLO Wednesdays, July–August
What am I here for? What is my life all about? These are questions we all have. And we don’t just want general answers (“love God and others”)—we want to know, what part do I play in all of this? Do I have anything to offer? Could God use me for good? Could he turn my pain into a blessing for others? The Storyline group will help you explore those questions in the context of a fun, safe community. Each week will take you through a paradigm shift, changing the way you view your life and the world. Once you complete Storyline, you’ll have clarity about who you are Class Sessions and what you want out of life, and people with clarity tend to July 3: What is God’s Story? be more impactful than those July 10: Plot-Turns in My Story who live in a fog.
