Bible Study & Prayer Groups

Women's Bible Study

TUESDAYS 9 AM - Women of the Word: God of Deliverance
Begins September 14;
Hospitality Suite, Carla Bryan and Women’s Ministry Team, Study Guide $16

This fall, we will be studying God of Deliverance by Jen Wilkin. In this 10-session verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1–18, Jen Wilkin shows us that Israel’s story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God.

Wednesday Electives @ 6:30PM

NEW! The Holy Spirit...Take 2!
Mezzanine 1 | Rachael Butler

We began 2020 embarking on a journey through Scripture to discover what God's Word teaches regarding His Holy Spirit. However, we were interrupted at the halfway point, putting many things on hold for a while. This fall, we have the opportunity to resume this life-changing journey. If you are curious about the nature and role of the Holy Spirit, this class is for you. If you hope to encounter the Holy Spirit, or perhaps feel uncomfortable just saying those words, this class is for you. Whether this is your first time to attend, or you are returning to finish what we originally started, come and receive. Please join us as we discover together what the Bible teaches regarding the person of the Holy Spirit – learning to embrace His ministry to us and through us.

Are your thoughts out of control—just like your life? Do you long to break free from the spiral of destructive thinking? If so, God's truth can become your battle plan to win the war in your mind! Replace self-doubt and negative thinking with joy, peace, truth, prayer, and praise. Groeschel shows you how to take the necessary steps to remove damaging lies, rewire your brain, renew your mind, reframe your vision, revive your soul, and restore a healthy perspective.

NEW! Don't Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table by Louie Giglio
Mezzanine 5 | Kathi Palmer & Victoria Singer, Study Guide $15

Find freedom when you let Jesus lead the battle for your heart! Scripture makes it clear that Satan will do anything to tempt you into poor decisions and self-defeating mindsets---including anxiety, rage, lust, and despair. But, by examining Psalm 23 in fresh ways, Giglio helps you reject enemy voices and receive encouragement, hope, and strength.

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.
