Disciple Fast Track
Sundays, 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. | Jan 13 - Mar 17, 2019, New Testament | North Adult Center, Room 12 | All
Led by Rev. Matt Patrick
Have you ever wanted to read the Bible but found it overwhelming and that you don’t even know where to begin? Disciple Fast Track is a new and accelerated version of the popular Disciple Bible Study series. If you are looking to take a deep spiritual dive into the entirety of scripture, this Disciple Fast Track study is for you. The 10 week study of the Old Testament took place this past fall, but we are about to spend 10 weeks in the spring covering the New Testament. Our newest minister, Rev. Matt Patrick, will be leading it, and he says this: “I’m so excited to be teaching Disciple Bible Study this fall! Throughout my life, I have watched countless people be transformed by this wonderful class. In fact, as a child I watched this class transform the way my parents viewed their faith. I hope that you will consider committing to this class. I can promise that together, we will dig deep into the Bible and ask the tough questions that, in the end, will drive us closer to Jesus Christ.” Cost of Materials (available at September 16 class session): $35. Childcare will be available. Register here

“JOB! A Story of Unlikely Joy” by Lisa Harper
Tuesdays, 10:00-11:30 a.m. | September 25 - November 6 | South Adult Center, Room 3 | Women
Led by Lou Ann Morris
Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. Just ask Job, the man from UZ who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this study, discover the redemptive facet of Job’s suffering. Learn to view pain as a way to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and trust in the Lord. Because His province will never take you to a place His grace will not sustain you. Books will be available the first class session for $13. Click here to register.

Companions in Christ
Wednesday Afternoons, 12:00 noon - 2:00 p.m. | beginning September 19, 2018 (ongoing for 28 sessions) | North Adult Center, Room 1 | All
Led by Sherri Price
Beginning Tuesday, September 19, men and women are invited into a 28-week Spiritual Formation experience that will change the way you relate to God, to others, and to yourselves, 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. Books will be available the first day of class for $20. Click here to register.

Fridays, 9:30-11:30 a.m. | beginning January 11, 2018 | 13.2 Coffee Shop | Women
Friday Moms Group – Led by Holly Browning and Paula Thomas
Often, idols are obvious — money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of sweet loved ones, Instagramable interiors, and busy seasons of ministry. If your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, they are taking up space meant for Him alone. This study will challenge women to evaluate the modern-day idols in our culture and embrace a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus. Childcare available.
