“JOB! A Story of Unlikely Joy” by Lisa Harper
10:00-11:30 a.m., beginning September 25 for 7 weeks
Led by Lou Ann Morris
South Adult Center, Room 3
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. Register here.

Wednesday Mornings

“Making Sense of the Bible” by Adam Hamilton
9:30-11:15 a.m., beginning September 12
Led by Patricia Hocker/Debbi Marshall
South Adult Center, Rooms 1 & 2
In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible. The book begins with foundational questions such as, “How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? And, Is the Bible ever wrong?

” From there, Hamilton considers the real questions people frequently ask that continue to divide Christians and denominations alike. In approachable and inviting language, Hamilton addresses these often misunderstood biblical themes leading readers to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

9:30-11:30 a.m., beginning September 7
Led by Kim Bilger and Meghan Thompson

In today’s busy world, we’re wired to be “fine,” warding off authenticity for pleasantries; shielding ourselves from misunderstanding or judgment; hiding in the shadows of our busyness to escape intimate friendship with the women God places in our lives.
