PG Event July 9th 2022

PG - An Evening with Fellow Parents

Saturday, July 9th from 6:00-8:00pm

At the last PG event, one thing discussed was a danger of parenting: raising our kids to be experientially rich but relationally poor. The three main questions we need to continually ask are:

• What am I doing to enhance my child’s relationship with ME?
• What am I doing to advance my child’s relationship with GOD?
• What am I doing to influence my child’s relationship with PEOPLE outside the home?

That last question is highly significant but often overlooked — our child’s relationships with other adults.

The truth is that the people in our life shape our life. Think back in your life -- who were the people who were instrumental in influencing you? Probably it was a coach, teacher, mentor, youth leader, or Bible study teacher. Other than our parents, other adults influenced who we were and what we did.

That truth is so important to us that we design our ministries to intentionally create opportunities for adults to be influential in our children’s lives. We should be so thankful that other adults care about our children and are speaking the truth into their lives. Together, we want to raise a generation of children who love God and influence the world.

We hope to see you as we share some great teaching, fellowship, and food! Please register by clicking the button to help us determine the food and childcare needed.

Bridges to Hope (updated)

Bridges to Hope

Wednesday, Sept. 29th 7:00-8:00pm

"What is mental illness?"    "How does it impact individuals, families, and communities?"   "What resources are there to help?"   "When should I call 911, and what should I expect?"    "What about medicine?"     "What good is talk therapy?" 
These are some of the questions to be discussed by a panel of guests that includes: Angelina Hudson, Parent and Interim Executive Director NAMI; Omar Sesay, M. Ed., LPC-S, NCC, Top Level Counseling Center; Mike and Susan Schultz, Caregivers; and Fort Bend County Sheriff Eric Fagan.

Mental health affects everyone. Nearly 60 million Americans are affected by mental illness each year. Religion and spirituality can have a positive impact on mental health. Religion gives people something to believe in, provides a sense of structure and typically offers a group of people to connect with over similar beliefs. These facets can have a large positive impact on mental health—research suggests that religiosity reduces suicide rates, alcoholism and drug use.
   Bridges to Hope
        • Initiates social connections with other members
        • Creates a sense of belonging to a group
        • Offers trustworthy and safe social engagement
NAMI is here to provide the unique support, encouragement, education and advocacy that is unique to those with the lived experience.
Mental health is not only a social issue, but a public health issue. 50% of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14 and 75% by age 24. So, these are conditions of youth that for many continue through the lifetime. Early identification and intervention are key—and the tragic outcomes of failing to intervene with treatment and support are dire. Suicide is now the 2nd leading cause of death in youth ages 14-24.

Parent Unscripted

Parent Unscripted

Saturday, September 25th
6:00-8:00pm

The title "Parent Unscripted" comes from the observation that there is no perfect, neat script that every family follows when it comes to parenting. Unscripted is a time for our parents to get together and be fed physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. Imagine a white tablecloth, candlelit dinner, free childcare, meaningful conversations, laughter, and replenishing encouragement, along with an informative discussion on The Phases of Parenting. Parents -- Unscripted is for you. No matter the age of your children, you will receive practical suggestions for all phases of parenting! Please register so we can be prepared for childcare and the dinner to serve.

Chris Singleton

Chris Singleton Speaks on Forgiveness

Sunday, January 19th at 10:30am

Chris Singleton is a former professional baseball player in the Chicago Cubs organization as well as an inspirational speaker who has traveled the country passionately speaking to over 35,000 students. Chris has also spread his message through various different media outlets and has been featured on ESPN’s E:60, Sports Illustrated magazine, CNN, and USA Today. His mother, Sharonda Coleman Singleton, was murdered along with eight other victims at Mother Emanuel AME church in Downtown Charleston, South Carolina on June 17th 2015 by a white male who wanted to start a race related war in the United States. Chris inspired his city and the nation by forgiving the man who murdered his mother and stating that “Love is stronger than hate.” Chris inspires his audiences through his personal experiences of adversity and his belief that God can guide you through any storm you will ever pass.


EMANUEL

Friday Night at the Movies

Friday, January 10th at 7:00pm

EMANUEL
National headlines blazed the story: CHURCHGOERS GUNNED DOWN DURING PRAYER SERVICE IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA. After a 21-year-old white supremacist opened fire in the church, 9 African Americans lay dead—leaving their families and the nation to grapple with this senseless act of terror. 48 hours later, in the midst of unspeakable grief and suffering, the families of the Emanuel 9 stood in court facing the killer … and offered words of forgiveness. Their demonstration of grace ushered the way for hope and healing across a city and the nation. The documentary weaves the history of race relations in Charleston, the significance and impact of Mother Emanuel Church, and the hope that somehow emerges in the aftermath. EMANUEL is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness.


Due to the serious content of this documentary we advise that its viewing be for adults and older youth only. Childcare available starting at 6:45pm.

Markos_Louis HBU (2)

An Evening with Dr. Louis Markos

Sunday September 15th at 6:00pm

WHY CHRISTIANS SHOULD READ THE PAGAN CLASSICS
In this talk, Dr. Louis Markos, based on his book From Achilles to Christ, offers a powerful argument as to why Christians should read closely and prayerfully the pagan literature of the Greeks and Romans. He reasons that Christianity is not the only truth, but the only complete truth, and that fragments of God’s Truth can therefore be found in pre-Christian literature that point forward to the coming (and full) revelation of Christ, the Bible, and the Church. Biblical examples for reading and examining non-Christian classics include the truth that caused the journey of the Magi, Paul’s speech at the Areopagus, and Jesus’ conversations with pagans.

An Evening of Jazz with Kyle Turner (2)

An Evening of Jazz with Kyle Turner

Sunday August 18th at 6:00pm

Kyle Turner is one of the most creative, innovative and accomplished musicians to come out of Houston. So we invited him to bring his saxophone and his band to Sienna Ranch, to play before The Audience of One, allowing us to listen in as he renders his best before the Lord Jesus Christ. Kyle’s God-given talents and abilities for music, and especially jazz, were nurtured at Jackson State University and Texas Southern University where he was honored with numerous awards. Following graduation he toured nationally and shared the stage with Luther Vandross, Regina Belle, Joe Sample, Bobby Lyle, Al Jarreau, Will Downing, Terence Blanchard, Eddie Levert and Kirk Whalum, just to name a few. Kyle has recorded six solo CD’s including “It’s Time”, “Wrapped Tight”, and his latest 2018 release “Kyle Turner Live”. He is the host of the radio show “The Jazz Club” which airs on weekday afternoons on KTSU 90.9 FM. He and a friend founded the Bayou City Music Group recording label. Kyle invests a great amount of his time teaching, developing, and mentoring young musicians. Due to his success as a musician and a music educator he has been honored 4 times by Who’s Who in Black Houston. It has been said about Kyle Turner: “as his music moves through his soul, his audiences embark on a spiritual journey”. Come and experience jazz as played before the Lord Jesus Christ.

Unanswered:

Lasting Truth For Trending Questions
by Dr. Jeremiah J. Johnston


Wednesday Evenings 6:30-8:00
Beginning April 24th

Author Jeremiah Johnston here in person on April 24th and May 29th!


Dr. Johnston will be with us at Sienna Ranch Wednesday April 24th and Wednesday May 29th to discuss Unanswered with us in person. The BBC surveyed England asking why so many people were leaving the church. The number one answer they heard was: “the church will not answer my unanswered questions”. In America, the church fails to answer the unanswered questions because the church does not even know the questions that are being asked.

Dr. Jeremiah Johnston has traveled across the United States the past six years asking people to share with him their unanswered questions. After receiving over 4,000 questions he identified six reoccurring, trending questions. In his book Unanswered, Dr. Johnston tackles these six tough issues:

God on Mute: What Do I Do When God is Silent?
Body of Proof: Why Can I Trust the Bodily Resurrection of Jesus and How Does That Change Things Today?
My Invisible Disease: What Christians Must Understand About Suicide and Mental Health
Paranormalcy: Understanding Spiritual Darkness and the Paranormal Allure Among Americans and How To Escape It
Bible-ish Christianity: Why Most Christians Know Just Enough About The Bible To Be Dangerous
Becoming Job: Why Suffering, Me-centric Christianity, and a Concierge-God Don’t Mix

“We, as believers, must be aware the questions our culture is asking of our faith and we must be prepared to demonstrate why Christianity is believable, acceptable, worthy of our trust and obedience, and overall, a force for good in the world,” says Johnston. “The mission of Unanswered is to provide the essential training to transform and enrich believers who are committed to escape the tendency to offer trite answers to the unanswered questions of a skeptical world.”

Dr. Jeremiah J. Johnston is a New Testament scholar, apologist, and sought-after speaker at universities and churches. He completed his doctoral residency in Oxford and received his PhD from Middlesex University (UK). He also earned advanced degrees in theology from Acadia University and received his M.Div. at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Johnston has distinguished himself with publications in both popular and scholarly books and journals. He has appeared as a theological and culture expert on CBS This Morning, numerous network affiliate television stations, and repeatedly quoted in USA Today and their associated Faith and Reason blog.
