Antidotes for the Out of Control Life

Wednesdays, 6:10 pm

Are you busy all the time? Do you find yourself exhausted at the end of most weeks? Ever feel overwhelmed by the expectations and obligations in your life? It may surprise you that the Bible offers relevant answers that have the power to change your life.

He Chose the Nails

Wednesdays, 6:15 pm

In this five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores the many gifts Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross, but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brow, the nails that tore his flesh and the seamless robe that he removed for us. The empty tomb is where he forever defeated sin and death.

Covenant Bible Study

Wednesdays, 6:15 pm

Are you ready to join an in-depth Bible study? The Covenant Bible Study group will be starting Covenant 3: Trusting the Covenant on Wednesday, March 15. Even if you have not taken Covenant 1 or 2 yet, you are welcome to join us for this, the last of three 8-week studies that explore the Scriptures through the lens of God’s covenant with us.

Lenten Study – Questions Jesus Asks Us

Wednesdays, 1:00 – 2:00 pm

Truth Seeker Class: Fear Of the Other

Thursdays at 12:00 pm

We live in a culture where fear is used to manipulate us and even, in some ways, to control us. This study by William Willimon will help us discern what is the Christ-like way to respond to others and how to live that out in a world that is hostile to Christ’s teachings on love.
