From unexpected circumstances to on-going challenges and persistent struggles, people are facing trials of many kinds, and many are not okay! If we love, we care! “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you” (John 15:12).
Difficult life circumstances are frequently what spark people’s faith and reveal their need for God and the church – our brothers and sisters in Christ. “But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.” (1 John 4:12).
The care you need. The information you can trust. After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues and you feel alone. Often friends and family want to help you, but don’t know how. That’s the reason for GriefShare. Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future. Check Upcoming Events below for the next GriefShare class.
When we are holding our newborn in our arms, we think about what they are about to become – great athletes, super talented, looked up to by all the kids in their class and graduating Magna cum-whatever – and that’s just kindergarten! The problem is these little “18 year wake up calls” have a mind of their own, a personality of their own and a deep seated sin nature that can thwart all of our best-laid plans and intentions. Each year Pastor Will Wilson and his wife Lindy offer a Christian based parenting class to help parents learn the biblical philosophy of parenting that is written through the pages of Scripture. Please see the Upcoming Events below for future class dates.
Christ set us free! So why do we continue to allow student loans, credit cards, and car payments to enslave us? During Financial Peace University, you will discover a world of freedom by using proven, biblical principles to permanently break free from the bondage of debt. EFCC usuallys hosts this class two times a year. Please email frontoffice@efcChico.org for information on the next available class. Free childcare is available.
If you’re a single parent, you’re probably tired, overwhelmed and feeling a bit under appreciated. At a Single & Parenting group, you’ll participate in video seminars that explain how to:
- Wisely encourage your kids to obey
- help your hurting child
- Eliminate debt
- Deal with verbal onslaughts
- Figure out what your emotions are telling you.
Plus, you’ll develop meaningful friendships with other single parents, who like you, are tired of hectic mornings and chaotic evenings, the kids fighting and never-ending to-do list. Take the guesswork out of parenting alone.
Do you know it takes more preparation and testing to get a driver’s license than a marriage license? Did you realize that people invest time in preparing for a career, learning a new skill, or developing a talent yet they often marry believing it will “just come naturally”? Who teaches us how to succeed in marriage? Where do we go to find out how to not just survive, but to thrive? Well, we believe it’s always best to go to the source. Who created marriage? That’s the one who should have the answers! Each year we offer a course to help strengthen your marriage based on God’s blueprint for marriage. He wants us to thrive in the covenant relationship of marriage that He created. Check Upcoming Events below for the next marriage class.
