Small Group Studies


    Seekers and longtime believers alike wrestle with finding their true identities. We get swayed by how well or how badly things are going and get caught up in other people’s opinion of us. The truth is, God’s love for us is constant—even when we are at our worst, nothing changes the fact that we are chosen by Him.

This 4-week sermon series is written by Adam Weber, senior pastor of  Embrace Church, one of the fastest-growing UMC churches in America. Its purpose to help both believers and seekers understand the purpose and call of God on every person’s life.

Through these topics, you will help your members discover the life-changing truths that exist in an identity rooted in Christ.


This ALL CHURCH study will begin Wednesday, Feb 6 at 645p led by Pastor Todd.  Book orders available.





“It just shouldn’t be this hard “

Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a day where everything that could go wrong does go wrong–you lock your keys in the car while it’s running, lose control with your kids, make a mistake at the office that results in hours more work. And just when you think not one more thing could possibly happen . . . well, fill in the blank.

The struggle is real, friends. It may not be major stuff. Lives are not on the line here. But it makes us feel awful . . . and then we feel guilty for stressing when other people have “real” problems that are so much more serious.

Yet the fact remains: We live in a world that often feels harder than we think it should be. And so it can be easy to believe the stories we tell ourselves–that we’re doing it wrong, that we’ll be stuck in this place forever, that God doesn’t love us. We struggle to practice gratitude, to make godly choices, and to live our daily lives with confidence and contentment. So what can we do?

Join popular Bible teacher and counselor Nicole Unice to discover why the struggle is real . . . and what to do about it. Nicole offers practical tools to help you navigate the daily ups and downs, and ways to rewrite your struggle into a new, God-centered life story. The Struggle Is Real is an invitation to take the hard, hurtful, and confusing moments and turn them into opportunities to grow in wisdom, strength, and joy.
