“Speaking the Truth in Love” is a 13-week class beginning Sunday, February 12 during the 9:30 hour in Room 102. Based on the book Speaking the Truth in Love: How to Be an Assertive Christian by Rev. Dr. Kenneth C. Haugk, founder and Executive Director of Stephen Ministries, this offering will be led by Rev. Nikki Passante. The goal of this class is to develop a Biblically-based assertive lifestyle. An assertive lifestyle includes thinking that focuses on the truth, identifies and challenges irrational beliefs, and celebrates what God has done and continues to do. Participants will learn how to discern the truth and focus on the truth. Participants will develop a closer relationship with God, personal relationships will undoubtedly improve, and the ability to express your own preferences while honoring the choices of others will be gained.
