Fall Studies September 3rd and 5th through November 21
TUESDAY 10am-noon: "1 Peter, 2 Peter, and Jude: Steadfast in the Faith" by Sarah Ivill.
These New Testament books offer a timeless message of hope to Christians living in a post-truth culture that seeks salvation in false, futile saviors and rejects Jesus Christ as the way, the truth, and the life. In this ten-lesson Bible study, Sarah Ivill provides students of Scripture with an in-depth look at these three small epistles filled with great truths that will encourage them to remain steadfast in the faith in a world hostile to believers. Book Cost $10.
TUESDAY 6-7:30pm: "The Envy of Eve" by Melissa B. Kruger. This study will help you to understand how desires grow into covetousness and what happens when this sin takes power in our hearts. Covetousness chokes out the fruit of the spirit in our lives, allowing discontentment to bloom. The key to overcoming is to get to the root of the problem: unbelief--a mistrust of God's sovereignty and goodness. Book Cost $8
THURSDAY 9-10:30am: "Becoming MomStrong Bible Study:A Journey to Discover Your God-Given Calling" by Heidi St. John. (**childcare available by reservation)

"In All Things: A Nine-Week Devotional Bible Study on Unshakeable Joy" by Melissa B. Kruger. (**childcare available by reservation)
How can women in today's hectic world possess unshakable joy, peace, and contentment? You'll find the answer in the power-packed words of the apostle Paul, found in the book of Philippians. In this 9-week devotional study, Kruger walks you through Paul's words about the secret to no-matter-what joy - and shows you how you can find contentment and unwavering peace every day. Book Cost $10
THURSDAY 10am-noon: "Twelve Extraordinary Women: How God Shaped Women of the Bible and What He Wants to Do With You" by John MacArthur.
Celebrated for their courage, vision, hospitality, and spiritual giftedness, it's no wonder women were so important to God's plan revealed in the Old and New Testaments. It wasn't their natural qualities that made these women extraordinary but the power of the one true God whom they worshipped and served. Their struggles and temptations are the same trials faced by all believers at all ages.
These 12 women were not ancillary to God’s plan, but they were at the very heart of it. We’ll explore the amazing stories of the following women: Eve, Sarah, Rahab, Ruth, Hannah, Mary, the mother of Jesus, Anna, The Samaritan woman, Martha and Mary, Mary Magdalene, and Lydia. Book Cost $10
"The Envy of Eve" by Melissa B. Kruger.
This study will help you to understand how desires grow into covetousness and what happens when this sin takes power in our hearts. Covetousness chokes out the fruit of the spirit in our lives, allowing discontentment to bloom. The key to overcoming is to get to the root of the problem: unbelief--a mistrust of God's sovereignty and goodness. Book Cost $8
"James: Faith/Works" by Matt Chandler.
James had a unique earthly relationship with Jesus, but his letter clarifies what the Christian life should look like for us all. The Book of James is filled with practical wisdom for Christians, calling us to live out genuine faith through good works, but it is also rooted in rich theology. Perhaps more than any other book in the New Testament, James emphasizes the application of Christian belief.
The study examines the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works. In our own ability, we cannot stand in the face of adversity. Without faith we could never find the strength to trust God. We would never be able to see above the trials we meet and to keep our eyes focused on the King while counting our trials as joy. This is the essence of James. We don’t work to be saved; we work because we are saved. Faith apart from works can never be sustained. Book Cost $12
