HSBW Elective Registration

You will be able to select 2 electives to attend during the weekend.


Where are all my besties? - Billy Meenan

When God created the world he declared everything He made to be good.  However, there was one thing that was not good.  “It is not good for the man to be alone” (Gen. 2:18).  We were created for relationships both with God and people!  Without both we are not able to function properly.  Thanks to technology and social media we are able to communicate with hundreds, even thousands, of people each and every day.  While this seems like it should be good news, despite all the interactions we are able to have with others, many people are experiencing a profound sense of loneliness.  A major reason for this loneliness is that we have lost the true understanding of what friendship is supposed to be, and making close friends has become increasingly difficult.  In this elective we will explore how the Bible defines friendship and learn the amazing blessing that true Biblical friendship can be. If you like having good friends, and being a good friend, then come join the conversation!

 

How To Study The Bible for Yourself - Knowing Philemon - Bryan Villarreal

You know you should read your Bible. You know it’s a good thing to do. You see others doing it but you just know how to do it yourself. Or maybe you’ve started but got distracted or lost along the way. This class aims to equip you for a lifetime of reading, studying, and enjoying the Bible. Also, we will see the fruit of a lifetime of reading the Bible.

 

Motivations of the Heart - Christian Graham

Why do we do the things that we do? By studying Jesus and His life among His disciples we can learn why we do what we do. The life of Jesus reveals what should be behind our actions and invites us to walk with Him, even like Him in our daily lives. 

 

Repentance & Forgiveness - Blythe Coker

Repentance & forgiveness are big words that we hear all the time...but what do they really mean? What does it actually look like to repent and to forgive? What does it mean to live as forgiven people? Acts 3:19 says, “repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Repentance and refreshment go hand in hand according to God’s word. Repentance leads to forgiveness, reconciliation and renewal. Isn’t that what we are all looking for!?! To be refreshed and renewed!?! Come join me as we consider what it means to repent and to forgive as we seek the promise of Jesus that we will be refreshed when we turn toward Him.
