The Indwelling Life of Christ
Begins Sun, Oct 15, 9:15 AM, Room 212/213
by Gary Cain
….the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:26, 27
Have you ever considered what this great mystery, “Christ in you” means? Is this just a religious concept that cannot be understood, or is it possible to know the presence of Jesus as a reality in our everyday life? If you would like to investigate this mystery further, please join us for this 10-week study. We will read Major W. Ian Thomas’s book “The Indwelling Life of Christ: All of Him in All of Me.” Gary Cain will lead the discussion focused on living victoriously as we embrace the living Savior’s presence within us.

Holidays can create fresh memories of our loss and a fresh experience of pain and grief.

The Armor of God
Tues, Sept 5-Oct, 9:30-11 AM, Rm 219
by Shirley Webb
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this Priscilla Shirer study may be for you. Email Shirley to reserve one of the books ordered. Cost: $16
