You Don’t Have to Prove Anything. Jesus Has Already Proven Everything.

An 8-Session Study from Author Jennie Allen

“Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don’t measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don’t have to be.

In this 8-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don’t have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. Discover how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the Living Water.”

 

 

 

Women’s Weekly Wednesday Evening Study:

January 10 – March 28       6:15-7:30p.m.       Meets in the Lounge

Wednesday Evening Women’s Study (Lounge)

Do you stay busy to avoid deep connections? Do you resist community for fear of being judged? Do you need to reconcile a relationship?

“There are messy parts in all of our lives that we would rather not reveal—like strained relationships, sinking finances, and cluttered living rooms. We keep the doors of our hearts and homes closed for fear of being exposed. But what if we invited others in and experienced the beautiful acceptance and deep connection of Christian community?

Author and speaker Shauna Niequist is passionate about living life in community. In four intimate sessions, she walks through Scripture, challenging women to step out of isolation and fear and pursue relationships rooted in rest, grace, and reconciliation. As you learn the benefits of living an authentic life with others in Christ and watch real-life stories of women who have experienced freedom in meaningful community, you will discover why God designed and delights in relationships.”

 

 

Men’s Weekly Wednesday Night Study:

January 10-March 28       6:15p.m.        Meets in the classroom off the gym.

“We’ve all had an “aha moment” in our lives, an insight that changes everything. With everyday examples and testimonies, author Kyle Idleman draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements – awakening, honesty, action – can produce the same kind of “aha!” in our spiritual lives. In trademark City on a Hill style, the AHA Small Group Study marries straightforward bible teaching and cinematic storytelling. In it, three modern-day prodigals seek life apart from the Father, find themselves alone and desperate in their own distant country, and are faced with their AHA moment. ”

Faithwalking

Faith WalkingTwice a year we partner with other area churches to provide Faithwalking Retreats.

Faithwalking is creating a community of disciples of Jesus who are being personally transformed and who are catalysts, mobilizing Christians to become the functioning body of Christ in their neighborhoods, workplaces and 3rd places – to serve the poor, the marginalized, and those in need; to work for the common good, to restore individuals, social systems, communities and nations to God’s design.

It starts with the Faithwalking 101 retreat where we explore the meaning of radical obedience to God, the power of a reflective life with God, and the characteristics of an authentic community that reflects God’s Kingdom. After the retreat, the Faithwalking 201 series becomes a path of freedom as we begin to walk in obedience and fully experience these realities in our lives.  201 is offered over a period of 24 weeks during the Sunday School hour and is a combination of large group learning and weekly coaching appointments.  The 201 experience can also be done within triad relationships.
