Bible Study Opportunities
Monday Morning Bible Study, 9:30 a.m., Suite 280, Led by Bev Carroll
God Chooses People Like You by Bev Carroll 9/11 – 11/13
Book is $10 (will have available for intro session on 9/11)
The heroes of the Bible weren’t any more gifted or powerful than you are. They were flawed, ordinary people living ordinary lives and doing ordinary things. Their struggles and temptations were no different from ours. But they allowed their ordinary lives to be interrupted by God, who is anything but ordinary. They chose to obey God when they did not necessarily see a happy ending. And when they did, what we see as a remarkable hero in the Bible is just an ordinary person reflecting the glory of God. Our capabilities are far less influential than the choices we make, and our choices become the stories of our lives. We can continue to serve the pain of our past and be held captive by what we wish we could change, or we can let our belief in the power of God overshadow the size of our enemy and the depth of our weakness. God doesn’t need heroes. He wants you. His power and glory are most evident in your weakness. Your past is never too complicated or too far gone for God to redeem into something beautiful - resurrection is His specialty.
You Don't Have to Prove Anything. Jesus Has Already Proven Everything. by Jennie Allen 11/13 – 1/15
Book is $13 (available for intro session on 11/13) (we do not meet 12/18, 12/25, or 1/1)
Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don't measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don't have to be.
In this eight-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don't have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. Discover how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the Living Water.
There is childcare provided for the Monday morning Bible Study. Please register your child by contacting Suzanne Mason. Childcare is $5 per child per session, $8 per family. Money is collected at the end of each month.
