NEW BIBLE STUDY FOR
WEDNESDAYS | STARTING NOVEMBER 1

Detours

Weekly on Wednesdays - Begins 11.01.17 | 9-11 am | Room 211 | $15
Led by Dianna O'Connor

"Detours" is a DVD study by Pastor Tony Evans examining the life of Joseph and God's Sovereignty. God is at work even when life seems to be going wrong. Joseph endured betrayal, abandonment, injustice, and confusion before understanding God’s sovereign plan to redirect him from the pit to the palace. Even today it’s easy to wonder why God would allow calamity to happen or if He’s in control at all. Whether through uncontrollable circumstances or the pain of personal relationships, everyone has experienced unforeseen changes in life. This study helps believers navigate detours that may take you through trials, injustice, and even betrayal. You will be comforted and encouraged when you learn to rest in God’s redemptive plan and the hope found in God’s sovereign will. This study will be led by Diana O'Connor.

This book isolates key events that provide a framework for understanding the history of Christianity. The book presents Christianity as a worldwide phenomenon rather than just a Western experience.

Treasures from the Parables

Weekly on Tuesdays - Begins 9.12.17  |  7-9 pm| Room 110 | $13
 Led by Janette Dickerson

Treasures from the Parables covers selected parables of Jesus that deal with subjects such as lost things, what to do while waiting for the Lords return, God's invitation, and the temorary vs. the eternal...

The parables are very exciting and challenging portions of Scripture. Like a mystery novel, there is always something veiled, something hidden within them; thus they are enticing and challenging. Hidden clues encourage us to investigate and discover the hidden truths, which will become real treasures that enrich our lives and deepen our walk with the Lord when we apply those truths to our lives.

All Things New: 2 Corinthians

Weekly on Wednesdays - Begins 9.13.17  |  9-11 am | Library | $13
 Led by Dianna O'Connor

Dianna will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant.

Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

Come discover what many women in our church have called the most important study they have ever done:
