The Gospel and your Testimony: A Time Travel Tour! (Katherine Allen)

The church is true, the book is blue ... but don't let your testimony feel like a zoo! Have you ever wondered about the real difference between the church and the gospel? NO?? Well start wondering because it's important! With so many different ideas out there, it's enough to make you feel like a bunch of monkeys got loose in your head. Come learn about the difference between the church and the gospel and what it means to be covenant sons and daughters of God. We will travel through each dispensation of the gospel starting with Adam and Eve and their crazy encounter with the reptile exhibit, then take a ride on Noah's floating zoo, and stop by Egypt for a visit with Moses and his plague of frogs. We will learn how the church has changed during each dispensation and see that, despite the differences throughout time, it has always worked to help each of us receive and live the gospel and learn how to feed His sheep. Because, as every zookeeper knows, you can't forget feeding time!

Balance and Moderation (Nicole Freeman) Combined class with adults

The key word for this class could be STRIVING. Striving for balance and moderation. It’s a journey, not a destination. We strive for the ideal. Our goal is to keep balance and moderation in view and move forward as imbalance and indulgence enter. Life constantly moves from order to chaos to order again, balance to imbalance, and back to balance, moderation to indulgence to moderation. What are we learning in the process? Recognize that you are spiraling up. You are doing better than you think!
