At Starview UCC, we believe that Christian Education (Faith Development) is a very important part of our spiritual lives and our relationship with Christ and one another. Therefore, we offer not only Sunday morning Christian Education classes, but also mid-week studies and a Vacation Bible School. Topics and the material used to study those topics are quite diverse. For example, on Sunday mornings, our youngest children are learning different Bible Stories and discussing how they are relevant in their lives - even at their young age. But here is the REAL KICKER - they are learning how to create and edit their own "videos" of the biblical stories and then posting them as a witness on YouTube.

In this five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores God's promise in Philippians 4:4-8 and shows that while anxiety is part of life, it doesn't have to dominate life. As you follow God's prescription for worry - celebrate his goodness, ask for help, leave your concerns with him, meditate on good things - you will experience his peace. You can stop letting anxiety rule your day and find true calm and contentment in Christ.
