Love And Respect

What is the issue when the issue isn’t the issue? Marriage is hard and despite your best attempt, conflict is unavoidable. This study will provide insight into how God has uniquely designed men and women and how you can embrace those differences in marriage. As you come to see the heart behind your spouse’s complaints, you will better understand the place for both love and respect with each other. Rather than becoming another statistic, you can break the cycle and have a thriving marriage according to God’s good design.

Men’s Bible Study – Know What You’re For

Today, people are often known more for what they are against rather than what they are for. God is for the people in our world. He is for breaking down unnecessary barriers that keep people away from experiencing his love. As his followers, he calls us to be husbands, fathers, friends, leaders and employees who do the same. Through this study we’ll discuss what we are for and how to be for others in our lives – at work, home and in our community.

  • Led by Scott Ensminger and Peter Buckland
  • Wednesday Night at 6:30pm, begins February 3
  • Class Length: 10 weeks

While We’re Waiting

When a parent loses a child, you are faced with the reality of many years ahead of you before you are reunited with that child in Heaven. As you face those seemingly interminable years, we have some choices to make… Are you going to abandon or apply your faith? Are you going to allow grief to make you bitter, or allow God to use grief to make you better?

These, and many more questions, are discussed at the While We’re Waiting support groups. Here you’ll find other parents who have gone through the same life-altering moment of losing a child. Here you’ll find others who have found hope on the other side.

  • Led by Ward and Tanya Thomas
  • The first Thursday of the month at 6:30pm, year round

Women’s Bible Study – Jonah

Jonah by Priscilla Shirer

Interruptions. They’re aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. What do we do when God interrupts our lives or when he wants us to go in a different direction than we had planned? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this study, Priscilla Shirer redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God’s invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. It’s an opportunity to do something more than we can imagine for ourselves. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was a revival in an entire city!

  • Wednesday Night at 6:30pm, begins February 3
  • Class Length: 7 weeks
