Labeled Study - Six Week Small Group Study
If you’ve ever walked into a large conference you know there is one thing you are going to get, a nametag. But what if that nametag had more than just your name on it? What if it revealed the way you think about yourself or the way others think about you? I wonder if we’d last a whole day at the conference.

Labels are powerful things. In this study we are going to explore how the labels we wear shape our lives. We are going to challenge ourselves to examine those labels and either replace or throw out the untrue labels with the truest ones.

The Search for Significance by Robert S. McGee
“When I fail at something, I feel lousy about myself. When others do not approve of me, I can’t seem to get over it. Sometimes it feels like I’ll never measure up.”  These are the universal lies that trigger the cycle of self-doubt, robbing you of joyful living. Now, you can free yourself from these self-defeating lies. One by one, The Search for Significance confronts these lies, dismantles them, and points you to a higher truth that is the source of life’s meaning. It points you to Almighty God—the source of life itself.

Enough About Me: Find Lasting Joy in the Age of Self 
by Jen Oshman
“ Women today feel a constant pressure to improve themselves and just never feel like they’re “enough.” They live their daily lives disheartened, disillusioned, and disappointed. That’s because joy doesn’t come from a new self-improvement strategy; it comes from rooting their identity in who God says they are and what he has done on their behalf. This book calls women to look away from themselves in order to find the abundant life God offers them—contrasting the cultural emphasis on personal improvement and empowerment with what the Scriptures say about a life rooted, built up, and established in the gospel.“

But these challenges also create abundant opportunities to stand strong for Christ and shine light to those hurt by the darkness of our day.
