Marks of a Christian

This Summer's Combined Study is "Marks of a Christian."

There are 13 marks/characteristics we will go through. 
They are the Fruit of the Spirit - FoS (Galatians 5:22-23) and several key virtues from a book entitled Time for the Talk - T4T  
This book is very helpful in leading your son into manhood, but the 6 virtues are good ones for parents to teach and model for their boys and girls. You can read the link for a better understanding of the book.  During the July combined parents/children time, the focus will be on using those four virtues in parenting.
If you want to read more about this book go to

The basic premise of each class will be 
  • Share a simple explanation/definition of the characteristic (Some examples and other resoures )
  • Teaching about the characteristic - This teaching can be developed from
    • Scripture about the characteristic (click HERE for PDF resource) 
    • the character of the Trinity
    • as it relates to the Fruit of the Spirit, a contrast to Galatians 5:19 - 21
  • Some discussion and prayer on living this characteristic out
