CONNECT GROUP | ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING
Kendell Belcher | Room 207
This lively group of women read and discuss a book each semester that equips them for life and motherhood. Their conversations are lively and relationships are strong. They support and encourage one another in and out of the classroom setting. This semester they’ll read Max Lucado’s book, Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World. Based on Philippians 4:6-7, which is said to be the most underlined passage in the Bible, this book sets out to give believers who face lots of anxiety-provoking situations with what they need so they don’t have to be dominated by anxiety! Books are available for purchase at the first class, which is September 5th.
THE GOSPEL OF MARK
Vickie Taylor | Rm 105
The Women Walking With Jesus Group will be doing a study of the Gospel of Mark using a Seedbed study by Brad Johnson. This study will go through Mark’s narration of the events leading-up to and immediately following the life of Jesus. Anyone who picks up and reads the Gospel of Mark is bound to experience something greater, something richer, and something infinitely more valuable: transformation. Books are available for purchase the day of the study. Starts September 5th.
BE STILL: PRACTICING MEDITATION IN OUR BUSY LIVEs
Christa Midkiff & Suzan Benson | Rm 205
In the book of Acts we see the resurrected & reigning Christ, thru the Holy Spirit, teaching & guiding his children: leading Philip to new unreached cultures (Acts 8), revealing his messiahship to Paul (Acts 9), teaching Peter about his Jewish nationalism (Acts 10), guiding the church out of it’s cultural captivity (Acts15). What we see over & over again is God’s people learning to live on the basis of hearing God’s Voice and obeying His Word.
This is the biblical foundation for meditation! The wonderful news is that Jesus has not stopped acting and speaking. He is resurrected and at work in our world. He is not idle, nor has he developed laryngitis. He is alive and among us.
We’d like to invite you to journey with us as we practice the ancient Christian disciplines of prayer and meditation. No experience necessary.
Anita Wright & Nancy Edison | Room 102

THE ROAD BACK TO YOU | AN ENNEAGRAM STUDY
Sara Thompson & Shelley Johnson | Room 103
Ignorance is bliss―except in self-awareness. What you don’t know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships ― and even keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you’re stuck in the same ruts? The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In The Road Back to You, authors Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile introduce a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. By challenging us to bravely explore who we really are, the Enneagram helps us recognize and overcome self-defeating patterns of behavior and to become our most authentic selves. Books are available for purchase the first night.
This class will start on October 17th.
Ross Murphy | Room 208
If you haven’t taken a class by Ross Murphy, you want to! He has a gift for bringing the history and stories of the Bible to life like few teachers can. And he especially loves teaching the Old Testament. Come learn from Ross for four weeks, starting November 7th, as he teaches about Nehemiah — who he was and what he did — while framing the larger Old Testament context around Nehemiah’s life. Ross plans to look specifically at eight key prayers Nehemiah prayed as he answered the call to lead Israelites back to Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple and walls. You’ll be amazed how many life application connections you’ll make with this Old Testament book of the Bible.
This class will start on November 7th.

Pamela Morton | Decker Hall
This team joins in prayer for requests made through the online Prayer Request Form, New Covenant’s PrayerNet, the Prayer Phone Line, and the Prayer Boxes located throughout New Covenant’s facilities. Every Wednesday evening this team prepares the Worship Center for Sunday morning services by arranging items, such as the prayer request cards, within the pews and praying for the needs of those who will be sitting in each seat the following Sunday. This team also writes notes of hope and enouragement to persons on the prayer list each week. It’s a great team that grows together by encouraging and supporting each other while becoming friends (and having a lot of fun in the process).
