 Women’s Weekly Morning Study:

The Armor of God” by Priscilla Shirer

Women’s Monday Morning Bible Study   Monday Mornings beginning 9/18    10-11:30a.m.  Childcare will be available

“All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.

But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.”

Me, Myself, and Lies” by Jennifer Rothschild

“…this women’s Bible study that encourages (women) to clean out the junk in their minds and replace hidden negative thoughts with positive truths from God’s word.

Words are powerful. Especially the words women speak to themselves. All too often, what they say to themselves when they lie in bed at night or look in the mirror in the morning is not even close to the words God wants them to speak to their souls. According to Rothschild, what we think about often has a ripple effect on nearly every area of our lives.”

 

Men’s Weekly Wednesday Night Study:

September 20-November 15       6:15p.m.        Meets in the classroom off the gym.

“Fear. Rejection. Addiction. Anger. Comfort…must fall.

It’s likely you have a threatening giant in your life…an adversary or stronghold that’s diminishing your ability to live a full and free life. Frozen in the grip of rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction, we lose sight of the promise God has for our lives. Demoralized and defeated, we settle for far less than his best.

God has a better plan for you, a plan for you to live in victory. That’s why he has silenced your giant once and for all.

In Goliath Must Fall, pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath. The key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer – Jesus. Put your hope in him, and watch Goliath fall.”

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.
