Character Workshops

In each of these independent workshops, we’ll journey deeper into our winter message series, Breaking Bad—Becoming Good. Discover timely insights on the topics of virtue, morality, and character formation in the Christian life. Attend one, two, or all three.


Character Formation for the Next Generation

Sunday, January 26 • 5:00-6:30 pm • Life Center
Aaron Anderson & Pastor Brian Rice

As our culture is rapidly changing, morality is changing as well. How do we instill virtue in the next generation? How do we pass on a Christian moral framework that is inspiring and empowering? How do we help the next generation discern and make wise choices for how they will live? And how do we do this when many of the institutions of our culture are increasingly inadequate for that task?

Deep Change: How Character Transformation Takes Place

Sunday, February 9 • 5:00-6:30 pm • Life Center
Pastor Brian Rice & Rebecca Rice

We live in the midst of incredibly divided times—sharp, partisan, and polarized. How does the follower of Jesus engage in meaningful and constructive ways with people who hold divergent views? This workshop will provide practical steps to creating civil conversations with the goal of building deeper relationships with others.

Mr. Rogers, Civility, and a Way Forward Together 

Sunday, February 16 • 5:00-6:30 pm • Life Center
Pastor Brian Newman

Change is hard. Character change is very hard. But that is the message of the Christian faith. By God’s grace, we are transformed from the inside out. Yet, we have a vital responsive and cooperative role that joins in with the work of God. This workshop looks at the biblical, spiritual and psychological dynamics of how deep change takes place in your life and what you do in partnership with the powerful presence of God with you and in you.
