YQ Party with Purpose

Option Session 2 - Saturday @ 8:45-9:45A

Brandon Crain (Library Study Area) - Light in Dark Places

Darkness. It finds us all. It causes fear. But light always breaks through. Jesus is our light and he calls the church to be the light. We will explore what it looks like to be light in a dark home, school, community or situation.

Brittney Murrey (Reimer Hall) - In a Broken Family

Abuse, mental health, divorce, strife… The list goes on of hardships that many people experience in their families today. Join me as we discuss struggles inside the home and explore how God calls us to respond and walk in the life that He has for us.

Levi Fraser (S113) - A Story Of Sexual Confusion

This seminar follows Levi's personal story through sexual abuse which led him to feel sexually confused and struggle with an addiction to same sex pornography. It will tackle hard issues of homosexuality, pornography, sexual addiction and abuse all within the church context. His story opens up a dialogue and pushes us to question how we should respond.

Taylor Rayburn (S111) - Our Brokenness for His Beauty (Girls Only)

Everyone has their own story of brokenness, but that brokenness is not something to be ashamed of or avoided. Our brokenness is meant to be surrendered, redeemed, and ultimately displayed for the glory of God. Ladies, I want to encourage you, with my own story, of how brokenness can be transformed into beauty. This seminar is intended for girls only.

Nathan Scott (S111)- Jesus' Healing Touch

The description: Although Jesus healed many people, when he touched them something more than just healing happened. Jesus did not have to touch someone to heal them, just like he does not have to touch you or me, but when we come to him in faith and ask for his touch something more than healing happens. Come find out what the big deal is with Jesus' touch.

Option Session 6 - Saturday @ 9:00-10:00PM

Marv Penner (Library Study Area) - How to Help Your Friend Who Cuts

Your friend trusts you enough to share their deepest hurts and pains with you. Unfortunately they have chosen self harm as a way of managing all that hurt. This practical workshop will equip you to help your friend who self injures.  The more you understand about what drives this behaviour the better equipped you'll be to love your hurting friend through the darkness they are experiencing.

Nicholas Piollett (S111) - Opening up to God's Work in Our Lives

It's pretty natural to unintentionally limit God from helping us through our brokenness. We often do everything but open up to the one source of hope that will get us through. The question for us is: How do we open ourselves up to everything God wants to do in our lives?

Please give us your feedback. We'd love to hear from you!
