Invitation to Romans: A Short-Term Disciples Study

8-week study
Led by Julia Walker

Thursday Mornings

9:30 - 11:30

Begins Jan. 6

Meets on Zoom

Book Available Here

It has been said that if you want to know about the risen Christ, study Paul - he met him.  It is difficult to overstate the importance of Romans in the Christian tradition.  Romans had a huge effect on Augustine, Luther, Calvin, and Wesley to name only a few.  Exploring how people have interpreted Romans through the ages is a good lens to view the history of Christianity itself. In comparing what Paul writes in Romans to what theologians like those mentioned above have written about what Paul says we will gain a deeper understanding of the path Christianity has taken and what the book now means to us today.

Breakthrough: Finding Freedom in Christ

6-week Women's Bible study 
Wed. Mornings, 9:30 - 11:30 am
Begins Jan. 12
Meets on Zoom
Led by Kim Carroll

Book Available Here

Many women feel they must be the perfect wife, the perfect mother, the perfect sister, daughter, employee…the perfect Christian. Why do we feel we must constantly measure up to be good enough for God? In this six-week study of Galatians, Barb Roose shows us that even the believers in the early church struggled to let go of rule-keeping in order to embrace God’s free gift of grace. We’ll learn that the Galatians had the same performance issues as we do. Learn to stop trying to measure up in God’s eyes and instead accept God’s grace, distinguish between lies and truth, and embrace God’s promise of freedom. 

Conversations at the Round Table

Meets In Person, Zoom Available
Led by Kim Carroll

In January our pastors will lead us in a sermon series entitled "God’s Round Table- Open, Inclusive, Uniting, Invitational, Diverse." You are invited to join the conversation at the round table on how we can be more welcoming and accepting as individuals and as a church. During this 6-week study, we will use a variety of study and prayer techniques to dive deeper into the Sunday mornings scripture texts to discern what God might be saying to us about we can better love God and our neighbors.

From constant waves of negative news to meeting family, career, and community needs, women today often feel more anxious than ever. Amidst the clamor of the world and the internal longings for peace, our overwhelming need is for more of God’s extraordinary presence, peace, and power in our lives. Join Becky Harling for a 6-week study that looks to Psalm 94:19: “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy!” The Extraordinary Power of Praise will help you put into practice the two-step process for soothing an anxious heart: finding joy to replace anxiety and learning to pour out our hearts to God in praise.
