Take Your Faith to Work – Beginning Wednesday, August 20, 6:00-7:00 p.m., room MP246
Dare to be a Daniel! Daniel worked for decades among “coworkers” who did not know the true God. Far from his place of worship and removed from likeminded people, his faith made him a frequent target of hostility. Yet his work and life left a lasting mark, and he was able to successfully carry out God’s agenda. Join Leroy Hurt for this 12-session video-driven study (divided into three Bible studies – join one or all) based on the book, Job-Shadowing Daniel; Walking the Talk at Work by Larry Peabody. Let Daniel be your mentor and learn how to reconnect Sunday and your workplace! Study books are $10.00 each.
Ready to Launch: Jesus-Centered Parenting in a Child-Centered World – Beginning Wednesday, August 20, 6:00-7:00 p/m., room CC309
Based on Psalm 127, this seven-session video-driven study by J. D. and Veronica Greear plumbs the wisdom of the Bible about the goals of parenting, the stages of discipline, the role of the church, and strategies to shape the heart toward the gospel. Christian parents are not seeking mere behavior modification in their children but the growth of truly godly passions. "Training a child up in the way he should go" must be done intentionally, with the mind and heart of God. Join Joe Armour for this special study. Study books are $12.00 each.
Culture Shock: A Biblical Response to Today’s Most Divisive Issues – Beginning Wednesday, August 20, 6:00-7:00 p.m., room CC303
Where do you stand on issues like: Right or Wrong, Sex, Abortion, Homosexuality, Environment, and Politics? More importantly, what does God say about these issues? This six topic-study (with Parts 1 & 2 on each topic) from Chip Ingram will help you develop convictions on these issues based on research, reason, and biblical truth. Join Michael and Stephanie McGuire for this study and discover the power of bringing light – not heat – to the core issues at the heart of society today. Study guides are $10.00 each.
In His Image with John Stonestreet and T. M. Moore – Beginning Wednesday, October 8, 6:00-7:00 p.m., room MP240
What is the image of God? What does it mean that we are made in God’s image, and why is that so important to our identity? Join Joe Armour as he leads this five-session video study that explores the unique significance that Christianity places on the human person. John Stonestreet and T. M. Moore interweave evidence from the great philosophers with examples of current cultural trends to demonstrate why Christianity is the only religion to fully explain the human condition, human dignity as inherent attribute, and the responsibilities of being made in God’s image. Study guides are $5.00 each.
