Ladies Fall Bible Study by Beth Moore

Final words can be compelling. In Paul’s last letter, he charged Timothy his beenttrusted-imageloved son in the faith, to not be ashamed to fulfill God’s call on his life. In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will challenge you to do the same, God has a plan for you. He has entrusted you with the gospel message and has gifted you to carry it to the furthest reaches of this planet.

Tuesday evenings Oct 4-Nov 8, 6-7:30 pm in the Great Room (no meal provided), Wednesday mornings Oct 5-Nov 9, 9:30-11 am, Room 101, and Saturday mornings Oct 8- Nov 12, 8:30 – 10 am in the Conference Room. $20 due by Sunday, Sep 25 for workbook and study costs. For more info or to register, go to the Info Center Sunday.

“Horizontal Jesus”

Men’s Fall Bible Study by Tony Evanshorizontal-jesus

Loving God is vertical love. Loving others is horizontal love. Jesus showed His disciple how these two loves are intertwined in practical ways. While our relationship with God is based on faith alone, He warns and encourages us to see that the way we treat people affects our experience of Him. In this six-session study, you’ll learn how to apply biblical principles drawn from several one-another passages in Scripture. In doing so, you’ll reap blessings in your vertical relationship with God.

Tuesday evenings Oct 4-Nov 8, 6:30-7:30 pm, in Room 101. $20 due by Sunday, Sep 25 for workbook and study costs. For more info or to register, go to the Info Center Sunday.
