November Elective

Transgenderism, Culture, and Christ's Kingdom

Taught by: Jonathan Kittel

Fellowship Hall | 9:45am

The phrase, "I am a woman trapped in a man's body..." would astound most people just one generation ago. Today, while most of us understand what this statement aims to convey, we are likely still confused on how to interact with and respond to those in the transgender community and their allies.

What has led to the development and progression of the Trans movement? How do we honor Christ in the midst of this cultural shift? What does it mean to share God's love and truth in the world today?

Join us each Sunday this month to better understand transgenderism, our culture, and Christ's kingdom.

Stephen Ministry at Mitchell Road


You may or not be aware that Stephen Ministry is a well-respected caring ministry being used by our congregation and thousands of others across the US as an outreach to hurting people. Stephen Ministers are congregation members who attend approximately 50 hours of training to provide confidential, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in and outside of the congregation. 


Each Stephen Minister is matched with a hurting person, men with men, women with women, and commits to meeting weekly, as needed, with that person to listen to, care for, pray for, and encourage them on a long-term basis. Stephen Ministers care for those dealing with issues such as grief, divorce, job loss, hospitalization, financial struggles, loneliness, convalescence, terminal illness, and other life difficulties. You don’t have to have experienced any of these issues to be an effective Stephen Minister. To learn more about who Stephen Ministers are or who have been the recipients of Stephen Ministry, visit the links below.


If you're interested in being trained to be more effective in ministry to hurting people, with or without becoming a Stephen Minister, or have questions about Stephen Ministry, please call Curtis DuBose at 864-268-2218 at the church or email him at


The training times and dates have not been determined yet, but are scheduled to begin in January 2024. We will do our best to accommodate as many of you who are interested as we can.
