Study of Isaiah  
Led by Ken Vandergriff
MEETS WEDNESDAY EVENINGS at 6:10 (8 Week Course)
Have you ever felt despair, thinking that life can’t get any worse?  Seems like no news is good news, and if that weren’t bad enough, God seems to be paying no attention?  Maybe that’s what many have felt for over a year now.  How do we cope with that?  Where do we find new strength to go on?  We can find hope in the second part of the book of Isaiah, chapters 40-66, commonly known as Second Isaiah.   A prophet brought God’s message of hope to a despairing people who had lived for decades in exile, forced to live in the land of their conquerors after seeing their homeland demolished.  The prophet spoke of unexpected newness, restoration, vocation, hope — which is a pretty good reason for us to study this text. (Wednesday nights from Jan 5 to Feb 23)
 
 
“Parenting Beyond Your Capacity”
Based on book by Reggie Joiner and Carey Nieuwhof  
Led by Michelle Anderson
MEETS WEDNESDAY EVENINGS at 6:10 (8 Week Course)

Did your child come with parenting instructions?  Mine did not, but it sure would be helpful at times!  Parenting can simultaneously be our greatest joy and our biggest challenge in life.  Thank goodness we don’t have to do it alone! Come join other parents as we learn, explore, and share along this journey of parenting together!  We will gather for 8 weeks on Wednesday evenings from 6:10-7:10pm beginning January 5.   We’ll discuss the importance of faith and community, the power of relationship, communication, and more!  Our study will be based on the book Parenting Beyond Your Capacity by Reggie Joiner and Carey Nieuwhof.  If you would like a copy you can order one from Amazon, but it is not required to participate in the study.  (Wednesday nights from Jan 5 to Feb 23)

Troublesome Texts:
Unfamiliar Stories That Ask Big Questions    
Led by Tony Cartledge
MEETS WEDNESDAY EVENINGS at 6:10 (8 Week Course)
 
The Bible contains many apparent inconsistencies, narrative tensions, and complicated characters. We’ll look at a selection of puzzling passages, not to solve all the issues, but to consider interpretive principles for dealing with troublesome texts.  (Wednesday nights from March 9 through May 4)

 

“Strong Words; Big Promises”
A Study of the Book of Amos  
Led by Mike Eddinger
MEETS WEDNESDAY EVENINGS at 6:10 (5 Week Course)

Are you ready to have your comfort zone disturbed? Maybe a better question is do you NEED to have your comfort zone disturbed? If you’re open to the possibility that God might want to broaden and deepen your attitude, your worship, your relationship with God, your idea of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ, then Amos is for you. As we study the book of Amos, we’ll hear God’s strong words to his people, and we’ll also hear God’s promise of restoration spoken through the mouth of this Non-Prophet Prophet. (Wednesday nights from March 9 through April 6)
