We offer weekly Bible studies, support groups, and special events. Please feel free to reach out to me, Brenda Garrison, with any questions or comments.

    Women's Study (Starts 1/10/2024)
    Front Porch (Room 116)

    Leader: Amy Walters
    Rooted Women

    The prophet Hosea had a strange assignment from God: marry a cheating woman so that his marriage can be a living picture of God's faithfulness to a faithless people. In this class, we will study verse by verse through this Old Testament book, noting together the repeated cycles of judgment, repentance, and redemption. Through the graphic language of Hosea's life, we see our own tendency to wander and the miracle of God's relentless love.

    Rooted Women Bible-Only Bible Study | Jorie Dahlin | Acts

    Acts continued from the fall semester. Have you ever wondered how the early church loved well and shared the Gospel from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth? Would you like to learn how you can do the same? If so, please join us for this Bible-Only Bible Study on the book of Acts. Each week, we will read a chapter of the Bible together and discuss it using a series of thought-provoking questions. We will gain a fresh perspective on how God worked in the lives of the early church, and how He works in our lives today.

    Lifestyle Evangelism | Elizabeth Holt, Lori Holt

    How to Talk About Jesus by Sam Chan
    Most of us are familiar with Jesus' Great Commission, as he tells his disciples to "go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." We would agree it is important for Christians to share their faith. Yet, when we look at our own lives, we realize that is often difficult, intimidating and something we just don't know how to do. This study will help us link arms as believers and learn practical ways to share our faith as we follow Jesus in our day to day lives.
    Cost: $14

    And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
