Faith Cafe meets on Sunday mornings for coffee and conversation. No registration is required and new participants are welcome at any time. 


Blessed Peacemakers: How Christians Handle Conflict

Jesus said “Blessed are the peacemakers,” but what does that mean in our everyday lives when we are dealing with conflict and broken relationships? Peacemakers are people who breathe grace. They draw continually on the goodness and power of Jesus Christ, and then they bring his love, mercy and forgiveness to the conflicts of everyday life. God delights to breathe his grace through peacemakers and use them to dissipate anger, improve understanding, promote justice, and encourage repentance and reconciliation.


When people lock horns in a courtroom, a congregational meeting, the bedroom, or the workplace, relationships are often severely damaged. Conflict robs us of time, energy, money, and opportunities. It can destroy our Christian witness.


This class is designed to teach you how to use the principles of biblical peacemaking in your own life and relationships. It is based solidly on God’s word and is effective in every conflict. 


Ken Sande is founder of Peacemaker Ministries, a certified Christian conciliator, and a certified emotional intelligence instructor.  The class is based on his book, The Peacemaker.  


Here are the weekly topics:

  • Session 1:  “Conflict Provides Opportunities”
  • Session 2:  “Live at Peace”
  • Session 3:  “Conflict Starts in the Heart”
  • Session 4:  “Confession Brings Freedom”
  • Session 5:  “Just Between the Two of You”
  • Session 6:  “Take One or Two Others Along”
  • Session 7:  “Forgive as God Forgave You”
  • Session 8:  “Overcome Evil with Good”

We will meet April 8 through June 3 at 9:15 in Multi-B. Coffee, goodies, new friends, and good conversation! No registration needed. It is recommended that you purchase The Peacemaker, but it is not required.


Please contact Anne Havrilla with any questions.

Unhitching from the Crazy Train: Finding Rest in a World You Can't Control

You have a picture of how life should go. We all do - the dream job, close friendships, loving, grateful children, a perfect marriage. But, more often than not, life doesn't go according to plan so we corral and control, determined to make our picture come true. Our emotional, spiritual, and even physical wellbeing are taken for a crazy ride as our very sanity becomes dependent on how closely reality matches our expectations. No wonder we're exhausted! We're hitched to a crazy train, and we want to get off. But how? 


"Come to me," Jesus says, "and I will give you rest." Join author, counselor, and teacher Julie Sparkman as she explores Jesus' gentle yet costly invitation to true rest that is dependent on the finished work of a Savior who will never leave us alone. 


To learn more, contact Michelle Richardson
