HOSEA: UNFAILING LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING
MARILYN KOLO | NORTH LOBBY CLASSROOM
The book of Hosea is a deeply personal and passionate, yet difficult love story. As an account full of harsh judgment unfolds, we find in its midst a rare and pure gem: the truest and purest of loves. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouse, and more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hope, hints and portents pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah.
Tuesdays | 6:00-7:00 AM
GIDEON: YOUR WEAKNESS, GOD'S STRENGTH
LISA DAVIS | RYAN HALL
Ever feel insufficient? Could it be that your weaknesses are the keys that unlock God's strength? Through a look at the life of Gideon, you can discover that instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, you can see them as the gifts, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.
Tuesdays | 9:00-11:00 AM
LORD, CHANGE MY ATTITUDE BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE
PAM MCPEEK & SARA HAMLIN | FORUM 400
What does God think about attitudes? This study from James MacDonald uses examples from the Israelites’ journey out of Egypt to show that attitudes can affect whether someone stays in the wilderness or enjoys the blessings of the promised land. It’s a powerful combination of in-depth Bible study and real-life application, including case studies, prayers, and examples of good and bad attitudes from both testaments that believers can apply in their own lives to develop better attitudes.
REVEALING THE MYSTERIES OF HEAVEN
MARGO VALCANOFF | FORUM 100
What we think about heaven determines how we live today. Our citizenship is in heaven (Phil. 3:17-21) so we are instructed to set our minds on things above, not on things on the earth. (Col. 3:2). God wants us to study heaven, visualize heaven, and look forward to the place He is preparing for us. His purpose is to change us now in this life so we are heavenly minded and more earthly good!
REAL MOMS…REAL JESUS
RACHEL SLOMA & LACEY PURCELL | FORUM 302
In Real Moms...Real Jesus: Meet the Friend Who Understands, Jill Savage introduces Jesus to real, down-to-earth moms with peanut butter and jelly on their pants. Each chapter addresses a behavior or decision of Jesus and relates it to the life of everyday moms. As a real friend, Jesus understands and wants to help you in your struggles as a mother.
PRESENT OVER PERFECT
MARIAN SORCI & COURTNEY LOWMAN | BRICK HOUSE
Busyness drains our souls and harms our bodies. When you don't have a moment to be still, how can the still, small voice of God's wisdom and love speak into your life? In Present Over Perfect, Shauna shares what she's learned in her journey toward slower living, which has become more abundant, fruitful living. Come alongside to rest, play, and recreate. What you'll find there satisfies more than you can imagine.
Wednesdays | 6:30-8:00 PM
MAGGI GARRISON & KENDRA GOULD | FORUM 100
We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. This study will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.
