THE BOOK OF ACTS - Pastor's Bible Study
Rev. Adrian Cole | Fireside Room
Seismic, earth shattering, paradigm shifting, world changing…
These are a few descriptions of the impact that the coming of the Holy Spirit made that is recorded in the Book of Acts. What happened through the experiences, encounters, and lives of the apostles literally reshaped human history.
To study the Book of Acts, and to encounter the same spirit that was in those first believers, is an exciting and challenging opportunity. I encourage you to join us in going back to experience this firsthand, primary source material. Let's see if it can be seismic and world changing in us. Come join us in September for the study on the Book of Acts.
This class begins September 6th.

PROVEN: WHERE CHRISTS’ ABUNDANCE MEETS OUR GREATEST NEED
Vickie Taylor | Rm 106
Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don't measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don't have to be. In this 8-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don't have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. Workbooks will be available for purchase the first night. This class begins September 6th.

Simplify the Holidays
Bonnie Cates & Wilma Hamilton | Rm 108
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go. . .” Wait a minute—it’s only August! Every year it seems retailers begin marketing for Yuletide earlier in hopes we will spend more, not just for the gifts, but for all the trappings necessary to celebrate in style. And every year many of us promise ourselves that we will not succumb to this consumer mentality and that this will be the year we really remember the Reason for the Season. Keep that promise to yourself – learn how to simplify the holidays by joining Wilma Hamilton and Bonnie Cates in a 6-week study, sponsored by the Spiritual Formation team: Christmas is Not Your Birthday: Experience the Joy of Living and Giving Like Jesus. The study begins September 6th and ends October 11th.

Rev. Darrell Cates | Rm 102/103
