Forever-Why You Can't Live Without It

DEXTER, MO- The Sweet Prospect General Baptist Church young adult Sunday school class will be starting a new study titled, Forever, why you can’t live without it.  

In this new study Paul David Tripp will answer questions such as: 

Why is it so hard for us to be satisfied? What do so many of our marriages struggle? Why do we have such a hard time getting along with family and friends? Why are we in so much debt? Why do we stand in front of full closets and say we have nothing to wear?  Why do we look into fully stocked refrigerators and say we have nothing to eat? Why do so many of us spend more than we earn? Why do we struggle with envy? Why do people disappoint us so much? Why does life in the here and now never seem to deliver what we hoped it would? Where do you go to find answers to questions like this? What helps you understand life?  

Tripp says, "We are all looking for meaning and purpose in our life. No matter who you are, where you are, and how old you are, you long for the perfect world and struggle with the fact that the address where you live is anything but perfect."

In Tripp’s video and book he points out that we can find the answer to these questions by focusing on eternity or forever. The class will study and explore the possibility that maybe this present life is not a destination, but a preparation for our final destination.  Young Adult class leader Rod Jetton said, “We will consider that how we live our lives has real consequences in the next. We will learn that God created us to live forever and that we can't make sense out of our present life without considering eternity.”  

Pastor Ray Rowland mentioned, "The first class will start this Sunday at 9:45.  A light breakfast with donuts, coffee and orange juice will be available.  We also have children's classes for those who have kids." There is a $10.00 charge for the class to help defray the costs of books and videos.  If you cannot attend the first week don't worry, this is a study you can drop into anytime and not miss a beat.

It is a ten week study and each Sunday participants will watch a short video then join a group discussion on the key points.  During the week students will also be reading the book, "Forever, Why you can't live without it." 

Jetton added, "I've enjoyed reading the book, and watching the videos.  It really helped me reflect on my life and what is really important.  I'm looking forward to going through the class with others were we can talk about life's big issues and encourage one another."

Sweet Prospect is located at 1201 E. Elk St. in Dexter across from Tyson.  The class starts at 9:45 am on Sunday Morning's before their worship service at 11:00 am.  The "young" adult class is for married couples or singles ages 20 to 50.  For more information call, text or email Rod Jetton at 573-225-4444 or               

Jetton concluded, "If you are looking to join others who are searching for the right answers to the big questions in life while trying to make a positive difference, then I hope you will consider attending our class.  We are far from perfect, but we are a small and friendly bunch that cares greatly for one another."
