Death and Resurrection of the Messiah by Ray Vander Laan

Financial Peace University
Wednesdays, January 17 - March 14 | 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. | Community Hall | All
Tom McGee and Peter Weaver – Facilitators
Does the topic of finances ever come up in your home or is it avoided at all costs? What does the financial future look like for you and your family? Discussing finances, developing budgets, and creating a financial plan for your life can be difficult if you don’t know the steps to take.
Every year Church of the Servant offers a 9-week course called Financial Peace University (FPU) that will teach you the financial steps to take! It teaches God’s ways of handling money. This is a class which millions of people have taken. They have pulled worries off their shoulders and put on confidence. They have rewritten their futures and secured their futures. On average those families have paid off $5,300 in debt and saved $2,700 in the first 90 days. That is an $8,000 turnaround.
Are you ready to carve out 9 weeks in your schedule to learn the steps to get where you want to be? You can do it! You just need a plan.
Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!
FPU will be held at Church of the Servant from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. beginning Wednesday, January 17 through March 14. Tom McGee and Peter Weaver will be instructing the 9-week event. For more information and to register, click the registration link below.
Companions in Christ (Closed Group)
Tuesdays, September 12, 2017, 9:30-11:30 a.m. (Ongoing for 28 sessions) | South Adult Center, Rooms 1 & 2 | All
Sherrie Price – Leader
Beginning Tuesday, September 12, men and women are invited into a 28-week Spiritual Formation experience that will change the way to relate to God, to others, and to themselves, opening the door to a lasting impact on your heart and God’s Kingdom. In a spiritual formation experience, our goal is spiritual growth. It is more about transformation than information. Together we will explore different types of prayer; looking at ways to connect our spiritual life to our everyday routine, allowing a deeper awareness of God in our daily being and doings. We will look at scripture and how it connects and illuminates our lives and our experiences. The spiritual disciplines of prayer, scripture, study, worship, ministry, and conversation are explored as ways to meet Christ, renew our faith, and deepen our love of God. Perhaps we will even begin to see ourselves and others differently in God’s light.
This class is closed to new enrollments.

This is a small group of women, where you can know others and be known. In Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz Curtis Higgs explores the “slightly bad” lives of a few Old Testament women. Far from evil, yet slightly bad, these women from the book of Genesis stubbed their toes along the rocky path of righteousness. Sound familiar? These ancient sisters aren’t a whole lot different from us. Laced with humor and built on solid research, this book will bring you to the realization that God loves you just the way you are.

He Speaks to Me: Preparing to Hear From God, by Priscilla Shirer
Do you want to develop a more intimate prayer life? Even more, do you want to hear from God in practical ways? Let Priscilla Shirer prepare you by giving you a deeper understanding of the Holy Spirit. Based on the life of Samuel (who first heard God’s voice while still a small boy) and packed with practical examples from Shirer’s own life, He Speaks to Me speaks directly to the need to develop a richer prayer life and a deeper, more intimate relationship with God and to learn how to comfortably share your experience of God with others.
James: Mercy Triumphs

Led by Elizabeth Johnson
James: Mercy Triumphs by Beth Moore
James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic. See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple. Bible scholars compare James to the prophet Amos. In other ways, James more closely resembles the Book of Proverbs than any other New Testament book. Topics in this study include: joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer. Member study books available at LifeWay.

The Women of Easter by Liz Curtis Higgs

With unforgettable insights and powerful life application for today’s women, Liz Curtis Higgs delves into the biblical text to help us view Easter through the eyes of three women named Mary, each of whom has a life-changing encounter with Jesus: Mary of Bethany, who prepares the way for the Lord’s burial when she anoints His feet and fills the air with her perfume; Mary of Nazareth, who remains by His side from His first breath to His last, her loyalty unwavering; and Mary Magdalene, delivered of seven demons, who bravely supports her Teacher through His darkest hours, then proclaims the glorious news of His resurrection.

Lively working women in all walks of life make up this study. In Trusting in Christ, author Sarah Young invites readers to explore what the Bible has to say about relying on God for all their needs. As they rest in God’s presence and encounter Him through the Word, they will discover the truth of the apostle Paul’s words when he said, “My God will meet all of your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus”(Philippians 4:19).

Embrace Grace by Liz Curtis Higgs
The forgiven life. The grace-filled life. It begins with an embrace. Wherever you are spiritually and whatever you have been through emotionally, Embrace Grace brings the welcome, life-giving message that you are already enfolded in the arms of One who believes in you, supports you, and treasures you. God is waiting for you to embrace him in return, to accept the gift he’s offering you, and to listen for the whispered words you’ve longed a lifetime to hear: “You are loved. All is forgiven.” Join Liz Curtis Higgs as she helps women let go of past mistakes and disappointments. Learn how you can accept the gift of divine mercy—and embrace the joyful freedom that grace provides. (Not meeting on March 23 and March 30)
