A. Encourage One Another - Robin Sink
Hebrews 3:13 "But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "today", lest any of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin." The Enemy seeks to keep us all from God, making sin look desirable. But as we are strengthened by the Word and our love for Christ, we can bear each other's burdens. How will you encourage your sister? How can you help to bear her burden?
B. Daily Meditation - Christy Arden
Psalm 1:2 "But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night." We have all heard the word "meditation" and have seen it in Scripture. Have you struggled with understanding what true meditation is? We will discuss what meditation is, what is involved, and its immeasurable benefits.
C. The Divine Armor - Melissa Walker
Ephesians 6:13 "Therefore, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything to stand firm." My accuser does not go on vacation and relentlessly attacks. Let us learn to be battle-ready each day with the divine armor God has provided.
D. Prepare Today - Dana Burk
Matthew 24:42 "Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming." It's easy to float through life not really giving God our best. How can we prepare today for Christ's coming?
E. Parenting - Tammie Johnson
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 "And these words that I command you shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children..." From birth to their 18th year we have less than 7,000 days with each of our children- to love them, to teach them, and to guide them in giving their hearts to God. Let's be intentional with our time by modeling how to put God first and by preparing our children for the eternal outcome of their daily actions.
A. Daily Forgiveness - Theresa Craig
Luke 17:4 "And if he sins against you seven times a day, and returns to you seven times, saying 'I repent', forgive him." Jesus places great emphasis on forgiveness saying that we must forgive from our hearts if we hope to experience God's forgiveness. What does true forgiveness from the heart look like? How can we guard against an unforgiving spirit?
B. A Focused Life - Athena Reed
John 9:4 "We must work the works of Him who sent Me, as long as it is day; night is coming when no man can work." Looking at the life of Jesus, we see that He was always focused on His Father's mission. We are too consumed with life's busyness and easily distracted. Let's learn to move forward each day with purpose and live like there is no retirement plan in God's Kingdom.
C. The Gospel Lived Out in the Community - Beth Works
Acts 2:46 "And day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and in breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart." Jesus and His 1st century followers lived life in community. Our culture is uniquely isolated and has lost the "community feel". We'll discuss the importance of living the Gospel together and how to go about sharing our lives together.
D. Renewal in the Silver Years - Sue Bronger
2 Corinthians 4:16 "Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day." The aging process can lead us to feel unproductive and unneeded in our "silver" years. How can we daily renew ourselves to combat losing heart in these years?
E. Teen Class: Prayer - Marie Edwards
2 Timothy 1:3 "I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience the way my forefathers did, as I constantly remember you in my prayers day and night." Prayer is an effective weapon that links us with Divine help. How often am I utilizing this gift for myself and on behalf of others?
A. Daily Bread - Meredith Sink
Matthew 6:11 "Give us this day our daily bread." In our culture of self-sufficiency, we often feel disconnected from the biblical picture of a shepherd leading his sheep through the wilderness to find sustenance. We will explore the ways God provides for us daily so that we can learn to depend only on Him.
B. Focusing on Today - Pam Blissitt
Matthew 6:34 "Therefore, do not be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Either by dwelling on the past or concerning ourselves with the future we are not trusting God in the moment. Let's discuss our culture's epidemic of anxiety and worry.
C. In His Time - Nina Gosser
Psalm 27:14 "Wait for the Lord; BE strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord." One's faith can sometimes be tested when continual and fervent prayer to God seemingly goes without answer. God's timing is not bound by our strong, or even noble desires, but it is perfect. How can we increase our faith and trust in His perfect timing?
D. Marriage - Wendy Kincaid
Proverbs 31:12 "She does him good and not evil all the days of her life." As we carefully and prayerfully consider our daily actions toward our husbands, can we honestly say we are doing him good and not evil? First as a Christian, and secondly as a wife, what does "doing good" look like on a daily basis?
E. Teen Class: Under Pressure - Ashley Morgan
Philippians 4:6-7 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." The expectations to excel academically, athletically, socially, and spiritually can become overwhelming. When the pressure to succeed causes anxiety and stress, where do I turn?

Q: What does social distancing look like this year?
A: We will have 6- 30 minute sessions and will meet all together in Kampen Lodge, while being socially distanced. In the event that we should need to do contact tracing after the Getaway, we feel this will make that process easier. While outdoors, you may mingle as you wish.
