168 Workshop: “Critical Conversations About Money and God” 

A key component in knowing and following Jesus all 168 hours is "Gospel Saturation." The big picture story of God can be used to navigate all life's situations. Regardless of our starting point financially, all of us interact with money. This workshop is designed to provide a biblical view of our bank accounts and practically point us towards healthy habits around saving and spending for long-term financial flourishing.

We organize our discipleship workshops into 3 levels: GreenBlueBlack. (More on this at centralheights.ca/168)

This tilts towards a Blue level experience that will contain some content that is at an intermediate level of teaching, but will be very helpful if you are new to and/or exploring Christianity.

A former Certified Financial Planner will be joining us from within our church family - our very own Lead Pastor Tim Klassen!

When: August 15, 7:00-8:30pm

Where: Nikkel Hall, Central Heights Church

How: Reserve a spot by registering registering here (space is limited!)

Who: Tim is most excited to see people come to know Jesus and grow in their relationship with him. He loves building into others and developing leaders who will follow Jesus with courage and love others with compassion. Family, food, and skillfully made lattes are gifts of life that TK thoroughly enjoys. Playing sports is a big favourite too as he works hard to keep ahead of his son-in-laws now nipping at his heels.

168 Workshop: “True Community In A Digital Culture”

A key component of knowing and following Jesus all 168 hours is "Connecting to and Investing in Community." Yet, the biblical vision for community can be difficult to experience in our everyday lives. On the one hand, our culture is hyperconnected by digital technologies and constantly interacting online. On the other hand, many of us suffer from significant isolation, loneliness, and fear—especially during a global pandemic. How do we connect to and invest in a community when "community" seems to be constantly digitized and happening somewhere other than where we are right now? This workshop explores barriers to true community and shares practical steps to overcome these obstacles in a digital age.

We organize our discipleship workshops into 3 levels: GreenBlueBlack. (More on this at centralheights.ca/168)

This is a Green level experience that contains introductory content that is helpful for any stage of life and/or faith.

168 Workshop: "When The Gospel Doesn't Seem To Work"

A key component in knowing and following Jesus all 168 hours is "Gospel Saturation." The big picture story of God can be used to navigate all life's situations. Sometimes this is challenging in the real time experiences we have that are marked by difficulty and doubt. This workshop is designed to sharpen your knowledge of the gospel and learn how to apply it amidst the struggles and uncertainties we face.

We organize our discipleship workshops into 3 levels: GreenBlueBlack. (More on this at centralheights.ca/168)
