1st Peter, A Living Hope in Christ

Wednesdays, March 4 – April 29 ● 10:00am – 12:00pm ● Room 213 ● Led by Melanie Kappler ● Book Fee: $15.00 ● Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. This is a women study.


Wednesdays, April 8 - May 13 ● 6:00pm – 7:00pm ● Room 212 ● Led by Dyroma Burroughs and Mallory Alberti ● Book Fee: $17.00 ● When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we're more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It's then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God

Sunday Night Classes

Understanding the Anger of God

Sundays, January 19 – March 8, 2020 ● Led by Nicole Vaughn ● 3:50pm – 5:00pm ● Room: 213 ● These were the last prophets to the Southern Kingdom of Judah before Judah was taken captive to Babylon. Each prophet cried out to a nation which needed to heed the Word of the Lord about judgment. Any nation, Assyria or Judah, which chose to worship idols rather than God, would be judged by God unless they turned to Him in repentance, but God would warn them first.These three prophets will teach you how God deals with those who turn away from Him and how He gives a warning to turn to Him rather than perish. This is a women study
