The Fellowship Class Studying, “Adam Hamilton’s “Moses: In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet.”

Among the many things to appreciate about Moses’ story is what an unlikely hero he was. He was a Hebrew adopted into Pharaoh’s family. He was a murderer and fugitive from the law. He was an elderly sheepherder from the desert whom God called to deliver the Israelites. He appears to have had some kind of speech impediment, yet became Israel’s greatest prophet. He was imperfect, afraid, reluctant, and often frustrated, all of which makes him so very human. Yet, despite all of this, the Book of Deuteronomy closes with these words: “No prophet like Moses has yet emerged in Israel; Moses knew the Lord face-to-face!”

Discovering Gems (Ladies Class) Studying Lysa Terkeurst’s, “Uninvited”

The enemy wants us to feel rejected…left out, lonely, and less than. We will honestly examine the roots of rejection, and its ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God. Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken; a love that does not reject or uninvite.

The Open Door Class Studying the Gospel of Luke

Luke was an associate of the Apostle Paul, and also the author of the book of Acts. Luke was a doctor and probably well-educated according to the style of writing and structure of his text. The Gospel of Luke is specifically addressed to an individual named Theophilus and is focused on the complete story and history of Jesus Christ from His birth and ministry to His crucifixion and resurrection. Luke’s Gospel focuses on Christ’s teachings about salvation and Christ’s fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies regarding the coming Messiah. It includes the beautiful birth story of the baby Jesus and the miracle conception by God. Join us for a study of this beautiful and deeply moving Gospel.

The Amoebas Class Studying 1 Thessalonians

The ancient city of Thessalonica has been reduced to rubble in the two thousand years since Paul authored 1 Thessalonians. Christianity has spread from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria and the ends of the earth. So much has is different in the world since Paul wrote to the Thessalonians, but in many ways, little has changed. We still need encouragement. We need integrity, virtue, hope love, and a good challenge. We too need assurance, peace, love, and most of all, we need grace.
