September 12-October 31, 2016 - Jeremiah: Daring to Hope in an Unstable World by Melissa Spoelstra - video study
Create hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of your life. This six-week study examines God's words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides you with six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as you surrender your will to God's and put your hope in Him alone. Combine study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application.
November 7, 2016 - Anything: The prayer that unlocked God and my soul by Jennie Allen - book study
Safe. Comfortable. Happy. Words we all love. Feelings we want, even crave. We may love God, but being that He’s invisible, words like comfortable seem to feel better faster. We are all chasing something. Our hearts were made to run hard and fast after things that move us. But as a generation, we are all beginning to stir and wake up, identifying that these words don’t satisfy for long, especially when compared to God. If God is real, and we are going to live with Him forever, shouldn’t He be everything? Caught in this familiar haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie Allen and her husband Zac, prayed a courageous prayer of abandonment that took them on the adventure God had written for them. “God, we will do anything. Anything.” Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move us to stop chasing things that just make us feel happy and start living a life that matters. A life that is... Surrendered. Reckless. Courageous. If we truly know a God worth giving anything for, everything changes.
