Women’s Wednesday Evening Bible Study – Wednesday evenings   6:15-7:30p.m.

The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth. Meaning God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever.

Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

 

 

 

Men’s Study: Fully Alive, by Ken Davis

Men’s Weekly Wednesday Night Study       6:15-7:30p.m.        Meets in the classroom off the gym.

St Ireneaus said, “The Glory of God is man fully alive.” That’s exactly how you were wired to live.  Yet sadness, depression, feelings of apathy and helplessness often characterize our lives. We survive but not thrive. This book is a treasure map that leads from monotony to adventure.  From boring mediocrity to thrilling risk. Here are detailed directions to take hold of the power to live the kind of life you were created for and your soul longs for. Fully Alive uncovers signs of life that lead to physical, mental, social and spiritual empowerment.

  • Discover the adventure hiding in the middle of the mundane.
  • Exchange the pain of unmet expectations for the joy of living with expectancy.
  • Get unstuck and take the first step that will lead to a new body, mind and spirit.
  • Kick guilt to the curb and experience real freedom.
  • Drive a stake into the heart of your everyday fears and live again.
  • Tap into a power that will protect you whether you’re crawling through the valley or standing on the mountain top

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.
