Sermon on the Mount By Jen Wilkin


In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right—a study on blessedness; a reflection on the Lord’s prayer; a discussion of religious devotion, money, ambition, and relationships. But what if we navigated these three chapters in Matthew as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about what it means to be a follower of Jesus, a citizen of the kingdom of heaven? This nine-session study will give you the opportunity to do just that. Come and learn from Jesus, just as His disciples did.

Tuesdays, September 22—November 17, 2014
9:30-11:30 AM Room 301/302 (3rd floor) 
Fee: $20
Facilitators: Janis Kerrigan, Dawn Brown & Gail Lang Childcare Available

Praying with Paul A Call to Spiritual Formation 


It’s doubtful that there is any Christian who has not sometimes found it difficult to pray. In itself this is neither surprising nor depressing: it is not surprising, because we are still pilgrims with many lessons to learn; it is not depressing, because struggling with such matters is part of the way we learn. God doesn’t demand hectic, frantic schedules. He only wants his people to know him more intimately. The apostle Paul found the kind of spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father that is available to all of us. Join us for this 8-week look at the Prayer of Paul to see what Paul taught in his “school of prayer”. We can all grow in our practice of having a more meaningful and dynamic prayer life. All lessons will be done in class with very light “take home” homework.

The Journey is a group of young moms who desire to study God’s word in a more relaxed atmosphere. This study is designed to be flexible and comfortable for women who need to bring a nursing baby or young child.

THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH: A Bright Light in a Dark Season
By Bette Nordberg


Some might ask, “How can the contents of a book written nearly twenty-five hundred years ago have anything to do with me?” The truth is that Jeremiah’s prophetic words regarding God’s people are just as relevant today as the day they were written. During this eight-week study you will be encouraged to live with the tenacity and obedience of the Old Testament prophet, Jeremiah, and discover truths revealed about God. Transport yourself into Jeremiah’s time. Learn about his culture, and his people, and come to understand their prevailing attitude toward God, the fear surrounding their everyday lives, and their many struggles in an era of international instability. Most importantly, soak in the many challenging applications the Book of Jeremiah offers to people today.

FAITH BY INVESTIGATION ~ FBI
Session 1 Fall Term

Have you ever: 
-Sat in church or Sunday School and wondered what in the world they are talking about? 
-Put down your Bible in confusion? 
-Wondered about the relevance of the Old Testament? 
- Heard stories about the Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark, or Jonah and the whale and wondered how they apply to you?
-Wondered why Indiana Jones wanted to find the lost ark? 
-Been afraid to ask questions like this?

Then come to FBI for a fast trip through the Bible. The itinerary will include stops to introduce you to key people, key events and major themes of the Bible. We will see that all the roads in the Bible lead not to Rome, but to Jesus Christ. Lessons are not difficult and discussions will provide more insights. Bring your Bible and let’s get started! This study has been divided into three sessions. Session 2 will be offered winter term and Session 3 in the spring.

Walking in Obedience 1 John & James 
With Jan Schultz

Many Christians today stress the forgiveness aspect of salvation virtually to the exclusion of the obedience that goes with that forgiveness. Indeed, Ephesians 2:8 says that salvation is God’s gift to us and that we cannot do anything to earn it. However, Ephesians 2:10 says that saved people are created to do good works which God has preordained for us. This term we will study 1 John & James, two very practical books, that call us to live out the faith we profess. Class members will have a few study questions to help them study each week and then will come together to share, pray and be further taught with the goal of increasingly practicing a life that lives, loves and leads like Jesus.

James-Mercy Triumphs
A Beth Moore DVD Series 


What Good is Your Faith? James forces us to face the implications of faith. Be inspired to put your faith into action in practical ways as you get to know both the man and the Book of James. Join Beth Moore as she explores such concepts as joy, hardship, faith, wisdom, single-mindedness, the tongue, humility, prayer, and more. Please note that this group will be taking things at a slower pace to allow busy moms and others to have more time to dig in to the homework. The 5 days of home work which would typically be done in one week will be split into 2 weeks extending the length of the study.

Wednesdays, Beginning September 23rd and ending February 2016
9:00-11:00 AM Room 102
Fee: $25

Broken Hearted Parents 
By Sharon Grinder 
 
This class is for moms who want to find spiritual help and healing as you work through the serious pain and hurt you might be feeling because of your adult child’s choices. Their choices could lead or have already led to a break in the relationship you have with your child. These choices could include: addiction, homosexuality, divorce, incarceration, etc. In this 6 week look at the book “Broken Hearted Parents” you will discover ideas on how to process your feelings, come to a deeper level in your walk with God, and find more ways to express the love you have for your child. We will center in on helpful scriptures, songs and poems and have a special “Prodigal Daughter” come and share her story to lift you up and give you encouragement on your journey of faith.
