Good to Great: Growing Your Marriage
Sun, 9AM, Gallery, Ongoing Class
by Phil & Eva Rees
Join other couples in lively discussions on matters no one told you about before the wedding. We’ll talk about romance, disagreements (because toilets aren’t self-cleaning), forgiveness (because taking out the trash can trash a couple), and other topics. The content from the pages of Gary Chapman’s book "Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married" will really hit home and challenge you! Through it all, you’ll discover the richness God intended when He established this bond called “marriage.” Contact facilitators Phil and Eva Rees for more information.

Walking with God
Sun, 9AM, Room 213, Jun 1-Jul 27
by Gary Cain
What is the focus of your life? Does that focus bring you fulfillment, or are you tired of running after dreams and goals that seem less than satisfying? Are your life’s dreams being met or are you frustrated, weary, burned-out, or discouraged? For what purpose do you pursue what you are pursuing anyway? Is life really supposed to be complicated, or is it possible to simply enjoy each day, no matter what the terrain may be? Jesus said “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” His purpose in coming is meant to be our purpose for living. Does this seem complicated? If so, please join us for an eight-week study that is meant to help us refocus our focus on Jesus, allowing Him to take us into a life that walks with God. For more information contact Gary Cain.

by Troy McCanless & Jared Adams
Every one of us is in a fight for our lives. The enemy is real–and so is the danger. But powerful forces convince us to ignore the spiritual war surrounding us. And that willing surrender ensures the total destruction of all we hold dear. But a new generation of God’s men is beginning to engage with the tools and training to take the fight to the enemy and respond with boldness and duty. This book by Kenny Luck is the manual for recognizing the deceptions about doing true spiritual battle, realizing the roles men play at the front lines, and rescuing the captives from the enemy’s stronghold. Cost: $10, for more information contact Jared.
