July 19, 2016  - Sandra Harris will teach Higher Than Me by Claudia Stewart Farrell.
Higher Than Me is a true story of faith: a three-generation account of a family. Follow the thread of a young woman, who devoted herself to the Lord, allowing Him to lead her on the path that she should go. The story book romance of this seemingly unlikely couple met unexpected resistance as their plans to marry were revealed, but they raised three talented children whose lives fulfilled a prophecy spoken before the youngest was even conceived.
It's a tale of victims becoming over-comers. It's a tale of God's love and faithfulness. In Higher Than Me you will learn the process that took three young kids from Highland, New York, to worldwide recognition on America's Got Talent. This is a classic beauty from ashes story. Claudia Stewart Farrell is a writer with a single record the manifestation and magnification of the goodness of God in people's lives. She has been dubbed a "Scribe for God". Books ($15) available Sunday mornings in classroom 244.

August 23, 2016 - Roberta Damon will teach her book A Voice Beyond Weeping.
This is Dr. Damon's autobiography. In it she shares the story of her three mothers, the relationships of her childhood, and God's call on her life.
From her heart as an innocent child to the understanding of her heart as a professional counselor she shares the stories of her life. She recaptures the enchantment of a more innocent time, and shares her story as she gives us insight into tools that allow us to asses our own stories of pain, suffering, and victory. Contact Bev Carroll to borrow a copy of this out-of-print book or visit the church library for a copy.
