None Like Him

Description: This will be a six week book study on None Like Him by Jen Wilkin. Jen leads us on a journey to discover ten ways God is different from us--and why that's a good thing. In the process, she highlights the joy of seeing our limited selves in relation to a limitless God, and how such a realization frees us from striving to be more than we were created to be.  Homework will be reading 2 or 3 chapters each week. We will gather on Tuesday mornings for discussion, prayer and sweet fellowship. We would love to have you join us!

Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler

Description: There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. And there are times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing to offer. Throughout it all, God shows us His steadfast love. Psalm 107 is a call to worship. It reminds us that each season of life is an opportunity to reveal the anchor of our souls. In this 7-session Bible study, learn to face both storms and deserts with courage and trust in Jesus, and discover how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts. For there is no fear for the one who fears the Lord, the one whose soul is anchored in His steadfast love.

Loving God, Loving Others – Precep

Description: What does God really want from you?  It’s easy to get confused about how to please God.  Centuries ago, in answer to this question, Jesus simplified all the rules and regulations of the Law into just two great commands:  love God and love people.  This Bible study looks at how these two commands define the heart of Christian faith.  This study will challenge you to live these commands out and discover how obeying Jesus’ simple commands will transform not only your life but also the lives of those around you. This is a 40- minute Precept class with NO HOMEWORK!  Perfect for every person, but especially you busy moms that want to get into God’s Word but, have limited time.  Of course, you can dig deeper into scripture from the lessons when time permits.
