Women's Bible Study
THURSDAY 9:30 AM - Vessels of the Word
Hospitality Suite, Jan Mingee & Joy Biggers
God’s plan for us is abundant life, even in the middle of a pandemic! He has given us great and precious promises in His Word, and He wants us to apply them to our everyday life. We will be looking at these promises each week and applying them to our daily living. Join us as we grow together through His Word and through our fellowship with one another!
TUESDAYS 9 AM - Women of the Word - Begins Tuesday, September 15
Hospitality Suite, Carla Bryan and Women’s Ministry Team, Study Guide is $12
The Bible warns us of “giants in the land” – and whether they’re literal like Goliath, or figurative ones like fear, loneliness, and temptation, their goal is the same: to crush God’s people. Giants plague today’s church and, while they may not wield spears and shields, they are fearsome, causing far too many of God’s children to stumble in their walks. In Slaying the Giants in Your Life, Dr. David Jeremiah challenges us to stand valiantly against the giants that seek to terrorize today’s believers.

Chapel, Ioni Castillo, John Ringleb, and Cynthia Foster, Registration $25
Everyone gets angry - whether it is directed inward or vented on another. An unhealthy approach to anger is harmful to you and your relationships. This support group will work through understanding the difference and will include regular speakers on sources of anger and paths to healing. This group is good for anyone, as it clarifies our personal boundaries, and the lies we believe about ourselves and others, while focusing on hope and healing in Christ.
SOUL – SURVIVORS OF UNTIMELY LOSS
Mezzanine 6, Terri Johnson
The journey through grief for a survivor of a suicide loss is difficult due to feelings of guilt, awkward encounters with those who do not understand the depth of the loss, and dealing with the stigma that surrounds suicide. If you are a survivor of a suicide loss, please join our SOUL Support Group for weekly conversations toward hope and healing with fellow survivors. Together, we can encourage, support, and pray for one another. The door opens at 6 PM for fellowship followed by group sharing from 6:30 to 7:45 PM.

Prayer Room, Esther Haas, All Ages Welcome
For some, the thought of the book of Revelation evokes memories of sermons referencing the mark of the beast, extreme fear of being left behind when Jesus comes, and classic Christian videos depicting what is often a director’s imagination of what the end-time scenario might look like. Though the book of Revelation definitely touches on all of these things, it’s easy to overlook its true focus: The Revelation of Jesus Christ.
Family Life Center, Room 116, Dr. Michael VanDoren
This class offers in-depth Bible instruction from a former SEU professor, everyday life application, and creative discussion. Our class is friendly, as we believe in supporting, encouraging, and praying for one another. You will be kept updated with newsletters, and an e-blast.
