WORKSHOP #1 / 10:45 - 11:30 AM
Beholding God in Corporate Worship
Is corporate worship merely an experience? Or is there something greater to behold in worship? Come behold God and hear about the deep theology in worship songs. Then, in response to these truths, we will spend time actually singing and praising God in worship. No musical talent required.
- Rob Terracciano, Worship Leader at Lincroft Bible Church
Beholding God in a World of Distraction. There is so much competing for our attention. Our lives are filled with so much noise. It is difficult to behold God if we cannot be still and know Him. This workshop will explore the how to have an effective “quiet time” in a world filled with noise and distraction.

Behold the God Who Is With You: God is not absent in suffering. God sees. God knows. But sometimes it doesn’t feel that way. Come behold the God who is with you and learn how to find hope in the midst of suffering and how to help others who are suffering.

WORKSHOP #2 / 2:00 - 2:45 PM
Beholding God Leads to Being Bold for God. Knowing God in his judgment and in light of the good news of his salvation motivates me to share with family, co-workers, and classmates. But what does this actually look like? How does the gospel help me overcome fear and uncertainty? How do I actually share the gospel? Come and learn how to be a faithful witness for Christ in your conversations with others.
- Kevin Doucett, Missions Pastor at Grace Bible Church
Beholding the Mercy of God: God is a God who weeps. Since God is rich in mercy, He is full of compassion toward those who are lost, marginalized, and oppressed, and in His justice, He acts on their behalf. Come and learn how to practically serve the needs of the poor, marginalized, and oppressed.
Behold Our God - Not Me: Our lives are filled with self-absorption. Our primary considerations in life are our own comfort, pleasure, and leisure. Consequently, our lives are filled with stress, anxiety, fear, and loneliness. The prescription for all of these things is a heavy dose of knowing who God is, and how He is worthy to be the center of our lives. Come behold the greatness of God by exploring His attributes and see how it leads to a more joy-filled life centered on God.
Small Group Discussion. This workshop is an opportunity for to process all of the messages and content given thus far. We will also be considering how we can practically apply what we have learned and how to share it with others.
