1 Peter by Jen Wilkin

The Quest Tuesday Mornings
September 11th – November 13th
9:30 – 11:30 am

Humility, submission, and our identity in Christ.

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ, challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.

God left heaven to save you, heal you, and redeem you. He knows your struggles, vulnerabilities, and pain. He knows you cannot change yourself. You can’t, but God can.   

In this Bible study, we will explore the practical side of redemption and what it means to experience the grace to live every day better than before. In this study you will:  Discover the beautiful theology of being redeemed and what it means for your everyday life, set your focus on Jesus for His help and hope as you continue being redeemed, and engage in 40 days of prayer as you read through the Psalms

Recovering Redemption By Matt Chandler

Wednesday Mornings
September 12th – December 5th
9:00 – 11:00 am

Christ changes everything. God has more. We’re settling for less.  

The bible is clear that God intends for His people to experience life abundantly. So why are things such a mess – even for Christians? We will get to the root of brokenness and our destructive patterns of behavior. We must reorient our lives around a right understanding and application of the gospel. No more settling for less than life abundant. No more treating symptoms instead of seeking health. It’s time to grow up into spiritual
maturity, living every day in the hope and freedom of Christ.

Led By: Tiffany Bagge + Taryn McNie 

Cost: $20 Room: 102

Acts By Gerrie Riihimaki

Wednesday Mornings
September 26th – November 14th
9:30 – 11:30 am

Living Spirit empowered, transformed lives.  

We live in a hedonistic and idolatrous world, yet God calls us to live a Spirit-filled life. The early Church had the same dilemma. The book of Acts tells the story of the early Christians and their life changing encounter with God’s Spirit. In our study we will learn from their experiences and how the Holy Spirit wants to empower and transform us to share His good news and bring Him glory.
