THURSDAY 9:30 AM - Vessels of the Word,
Hospitality Suite, Jan Mingee & Joy Biggers
This winter, we will be studying the book of Acts. This study will be about the dynamic works of the Holy Spirit in the early church. The disciples of Jesus came alive after receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit. As they ministered in the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the early church, the lives of many people were eternally changed. Our lives can be changed today as we encounter the living Lord and allow His Holy Spirit to flow through us. This study will strengthen our walk with the Lord. All ladies are welcome.

NEW! ELIJAH (Faith and Fire by Priscilla Shirer)
Mezzanine 1 | Jade Bryant, Study Guide - $15
Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness, and faith, that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet, few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness, emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire. Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah.

NEW! The Minor Prophets of the Old Testament
Café | Richard Cooke
This quarter, Pathways Class will be following a 12 week series covering the 12 minor prophets of the Old Testament. Written during a period of time, ranging from the ninth century B.C. to the fifth, they present a progressive testimony of God's activity in the history of Israel and in the kingdom of God. Although they ministered for more than three centuries during some of Israel’s most tumultuous days, the Minor Prophets remain a mystery to many Christians in the 21st century.
This will be one of the premier classes for those seeking an accessible, but mature, level of class discussion. Since we are located in the Café, purchase your coffee and donut, and join in on the learning and fellowship.
Family Life Center, Room 116 | Dr. Michael VanDoren
