For 10 sessions on Wednesdays from 6:30 - 7:30 PM our Women's Bible Study will go through Jenn Wilkin's study Better: A Study of Hebrews. It’s a verse-by-verse study that explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Books are available for purchase online (click here) but optional and not sign up necessary - come as you are 🙂 Contact Jess Grider with any questions jgrider@ptd.net. We'll meet upstairs in room 202.

James: Faith / Works

For 13-sessions on Wednesday Nights from 6:30 - 7:30 PM Men's Ministry will examine the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works. In our own ability, we cannot stand in the face of adversity. Without faith we could never find the strength to trust God. We would never be able to see above the trials we meet and to keep our eyes focused on the King while counting our trials as joy. This is the essence of James. We don’t work to be saved; we work because we are saved. Faith apart from works can never be sustained. No sign up necessary, come anytime! We'll meet upstairs in the Conference Room.

"Following Jesus in Demanding Times"

A study of Acts. An exegetical study through the book of Acts - a look behind the scenes of the early church. This study takes us through many stirring narratives of what life was like for the early church, and how it went through challenging times to begin the mission of following Jesus.

"Behavioral Manual for Uncertain Times"

A study of 1 & 2 Thessalonians. These two New Testament letters of the Apostle Paul balance the prophetical - Second Coming of Christ - with the practical - How to live out our faith in the light of Christ's return in our uncertain times.  The return of Christ is more than a doctrine to be studied - it's a dynamic to be lived out in our lives and in our church.
