These values flow from our mission to prepare God’s people for completeness in Jesus. As a class, we will talk about knowing Jesus personally, following Him as our Lord, growing in our experience with Him, and living out our faith each day so others can see His presence and power in our lives.

Breathe & Psalm 23 – Women’s Bible Study

This is a Women’s Bible Study. We will begin with Breathe and end with Psalm 23.

Breathe by Priscilla Shirer – In this 5-week Bible study from Priscilla Shirer we will learn the value of Sabbath. As women, we are in bondage to busyness which, in turn, hinders us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. In the Old Testament, God gave the Israelites many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Watch this video to learn more about Breathe!

Psalm 23 by Jennifer Rothschild – In this 7-week Bible study from Jennifer Rothschild we will take an in-depth look at Psalm 23. This psalm gives us more than comfort in death; it gives us confidence in life. We will gain fresh insight and encouragement as we learn that vulnerability is not a liability and that we can trust Jesus as our Shepherd through each season of our life.

Gripped By The Greatness Of God

Are you bored with church? Is your view of God more like a grandpa than the King of Kings?  Are you tired of hearing the same stories that you heard in Sunday School as a child and not being moved to Worship? God is not safe, and He will not be squeezed in to a neat, respectable Sunday discussion. To know God is to allow Him to explode from the pages of Scripture into the mundane of our lives. We will learn to be Gripped by the Greatness of God in our common existence as we unpack His attributes as depicted in the book of Isaiah as well as engage in  class discussion that will help apply these lessons to our everyday existence. Audio recordings of this class will be available online.
