Title: Baptism Orientation
Category: Baptism
Taught By: Pete Creamer

"Pete" Creamer, husband to Marla, is the father of three children and a proud grandpa. Pete received an undergraduate degree at Kentucky Christian University as well as a double Masters in Christian Leadership and Christian Ministry. For 29 years, he served as Teaching Pastor for The First Church of Christ in Xenia. He and Marla have attended SouthBrook since 2008, and Pete is probably most recognizable as one of the bass guitar players in our Worship Arts Ministry. But, you'll also find him teaching our Baptism Orientations every now and again. Pete is perhaps best known as "Randy Creamer's brother."

Description:

The topic of baptism often raises many questions. Simply, baptism is a physical act that reflects the state of our soul and what we believe as the truth. More simply, Jesus said to do it. However, we don’t want to pressure anyone, but merely assist them as they investigate and inquire about this monumental step in a relationship with God. Our Baptism Orientation class meets on Wednesday, October 18th from 7-8 pm.

Title: epic High School DR Mission Trip
Category: Students
Description:

As the first city founded in the Americas, Santo Domingo is a rich blending of European, African, and native Taino Indian cultures. Spanish is the official language of the DR, although the locals blend Spanish with Dominican elements—making it “Dominicanese.” Engage has a unique partnership with International Justice Mission (IJM) and you will have the privilege of visiting their field office in Santo Domingo. The team will do some tangible projects in the local community that will have a long-term impact. You will teach VBS at Pasitos de Jesus, and visit Lily House, where young women who were once enslaved, are now receiving training in a safe and loving Christian environment. You will also have the incredible opportunity to spend time with Fausto and El Circulo, where Engage will be involved in outreach evangelism, as well as a soccer camp. Come join this team and experience God’s redeeming love and grace for His people in the Dominican Republic. The trip will take place in partnership with CIY Engage from July 7-17, 2018.

God seeks to train up men who are Oriented—men who can guard their hearts, fiercely love their families, loyally protect their friends, and engage their lives in a large and weighty mission. This is a Kingdom mission that has found them and is calling them to band together with other like hearted men. Men who are summoning courage, heart and wisdom. Men who are standing together against the evil that opposes. Men who are staying together for the freedom that will come if willing to fight for it.

Title: PLAY Study (1st in series)
Category: General
Taught By: DVD-Driven
Description:

We want God to use our Personality, Learnings, Abilities and Yearnings to go into the world and make it as He intended. Personality is a combination of characteristics that make us! Learnings are accumulated data and wisdom from pain experiences that grow, mature and refine us. Abilities, combined with the Spirit in us, make something special come out of us to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Yearnings are bringing God into the world as our gifts intersect with the world’s real needs. When God is in us, there will be places in our soul that burn with His desire to set the world right. Upon completion, we recommend the Player Profiles Study.

Title: Player Profiles Study (2nd in series)
Category: General
Taught By: DVD-Driven
Description:

As a PLAY Study follow up, we look at biblical characters that have discovered their shape—who embody and exemplify how God puts people into PLAY to illustrate the spiritual abilities in Scripture and teach about the heroic players in the history of our faith.

In this study, we come to know ourselves better and see how God can use our lives for His bigger purposes. In an Assessment, we determine Spiritual Abilities—gifts that, combined with the Spirit in us, make something special of Him come out of us. We discover these divinely enabled Abilities that we may not know we have since surrendering our lives to Christ or that may be hidden because of not yet surrendering.

Title: Provoke
Category: General
Description:

Leadership is a series of events or teachings we have either learned along the way or if humble enough, have learned from someone else. By listening to others who humbly share their experiences, we would be amazed at how quickly each of us would pick up our own problems. Yet often, leaders are not vulnerable enough to let others see their weaknesses. Sharing those fears quite simply reminds us that we are not alone and together, we can accomplish so much more.

Some of us are too comfortable. Life is good. No big problems.
Could we be Provoked to do more?

Some are tired, worn out, and Provoked by life’s circumstances.
Could we be comforted and shown that we are not alone?

Through our Provoke leadership sessions, we'll look closely at these questions. Although geared toward business people, it's open to anyone as we meet monthly on the first Tuesday from 7-8 a.m. in the Small Theater. No cost or registration required.
