When you pray, who is the one you pray to? In this study Praying the Attributes of God by Ann Spangler, we will delve into the character of God, and with that knowledge, deepen our relationship with God and one another.Knowing all the attributes of God as a whole is like someone who has heard the sounds of our world all their life in bits of static, and suddenly gained the ability to hear the full range of sound. And then to hear a beautiful piece of classical music for the first time!We invite you with your busy schedule to join us on Thursday night each week. There is minimal homework and abundant grace. Each lesson stands on its own just in case if you have to miss a week.

What Love is: The Letters of 1,2,3
Meets Thurs, 6:30-8:00PM, Jan-Apr, Room 204
by Janet Hepplewhite and Cheryl Robinson 

Kelly Minter, author of “What Love Is” is passionate about women discovering Jesus Christ through the pages of Scripture. The letters of 1, 2, & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. In this study, you will be challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus. 

We've Saved You a Seat
Meets Thurs, 6:30-8:00PM, Jan-Apr, Room 208
by Ruth Bethka and Darcey Carney

In today’s busy world, we’re wired to appear “fine,” warding off authenticity and shielding ourselves from judgment. We hide behind the hum of busyness to escape intimate friendships with the women God has placed in our lives. But we do want a seat at the table. We yearn for authentic relationships and the opportunity to be the opposite of “fine” with people who cheer for us. But comparison, envy, and entitlement often stop us from pulling out a chair at the table. Friendship can be hard, making new friends even harder, and maintaining genuine friendship the hardest of all. In this Bible study, Lisa-Jo Baker explore our relationship with Jesus as the ultimate model for authentic friendship. Nothing shapes us like the impact of a friend—it’s how Jesus radically and intimately connects with us. So instead of chasing perfection, overcome your fear of being known and find the courage to connect.

 NEW! A Life Beyond Amazing
Begins Tues, Sept 11, 9:30-11:30 AM
by Shirley Webb
This study by Dr. David Jeremiah reminds us again that Christians are to develop the character of Christ, not only for our benefit but for the benefit of those whose lives we touch. Paul in Galatians 5:19-21 draws a distinction between “normal” people and Spirit-filled people, and how Christians should reflect the presence of God. How do we know when Christ is living His life fully through us? When our lives show the fruit of the Holy Spirit: when our lives are loving, joyful, peaceful, enduring, compassionate, generous, faithful, humble and self-disciplined. When we live a life like that, we will be living a life that is beyond amazing. Dr. Jeremiah gives us nine decisions that will transform our lives today.
