GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays

11.11 | 9 - 11:30 AM | West
The holiday season is upon us. However, for many, a season that is normally marked by celebration and joy can easily become overwhelmed with sorrow and dread due to the death (recent or past) of a loved one. So the goal often becomes a sense of, "I just need to survive the holidays, and get through this." We don't want you to do that alone or without help. When you are grieving a loved one's death, the holiday season can be especially painful. Our Surviving the Holidays seminar helps participants prepare for the holidays and even discover hope for the future. The cost is $5. Register at citylightomaha.org/sth.

Grassroots Apologetics for Parents

Mondays | 6:30 - 7:30 PM
West Location Conference Room

A Bible-centered ministry that works with local churches to equip parents with a deeper understanding of the Christian worldview and apologetics (how to make a case for and defend the truth of Christianity). Their passion is to help close the “GAP” that exists for parents between knowing the world will challenge their kids’ faith and knowing what to do about it. Join us as we begin our 10-week study together with Keeping Your Kids on God’s Side by Natasha Crain. We’ll cover 40 of the most important faith challenges parents and kids need to understand today. For more information and to register, contact christincmcdermott@gmail.com.

Summer Baptism Celebration

8.9 | 10:30 AM | Live-streamed from Midtown
One of the most exciting and celebratory things we have been able to do every year is to celebrate new life in Jesus and the work he is doing through our combined family baptism celebration. We have decided not to host a combined Citylight Family celebration this Summer in an effort to aid in the reducing of the spread of this virus. Instead, we will be live-streaming our baptism celebration from the Citylight Omaha Midtown location. Jesus is still changing lives and we look forward to hearing testimonies and baptizing many new believers. More at citylightomaha.org/summerbaptism.

Baptism Class

7.26 | 9 AM | Midtown & West
Citylight will be gathering for summer baptisms on August 9. If you're interested in getting baptized, attend a baptism class. Class offered two weeks in a row, but you only need to attend once. To sign up for a class, register at citylightomaha.org/baptism.
