Bible Study & Prayer Groups

Women's Bible Study

THURSDAY 9:30 AM - Vessels of the Word
Hospitality Suite, Jan Mingee & Joy Biggers

This summer, 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.

Experiencing God
Mezzanine 1 | Craig Butler, Workbook $10

Over the years, God has used the truths of Experiencing God to awaken believers to a radically God-centered way of life. As a result, many have come to know God intimately, to recognize His voice, and to understand His will for their lives. God is inviting you to experience Him in an intimate love relationship through which He reveals to you His will, His ways, and His work. This Bible study will help you know when God is speaking to you, recognize God’s activity around you, adjust your life to God and His ways, and identify what God wants to do through you.

Through their stories, discover how God uses the lives of ordinary people, for His glory, and the good of His people. Strengthen your faith as you walk alongside these larger-than-life
figures who all chose to obey God no matter the circumstances.

ANGER MANAGEMENT
Mezzanine 4 | 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 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.

PATHWAYS
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.
