Saturday, December 2, 5:00-7:30pm

Identity Matters: Experiencing Life in Christ—A Study of Colossians
Sunday mornings at 10:30am in Room K (weekly)
September 17-December 10
In Christ our identity matters—we have a new identity—an identity that depends on who God says we are. Knowing and believing who we are in Christ frees us to live life as God intended it to be lived. Join us as we study Colossians. We will look closely at who Christ is and who we (His Church and His people) are when we are found to be in Him. In the process, we hope to settle matters of identity once and for all!
Anchored Faith—A Study of Hebrews
Monday evenings from 5:45-7:30pm at 7205 Shamrock Court (bi-weekly)
Light dinner provided, childcare is not provided
September 11-November 20 & January 15-April 23
PorchLight is an interactive Bible study that seeks to assist women in discovering for themselves the joy of growing in knowing God through the study of His Word. Join us as we embark upon a study of Hebrews.
What words would describe the quality of your faith? Easily shaken. Rock solid. Wishy-washy. Confident. Full of doubt. Laser-focused. Sluggish. Assured. Steadfast. Shrinking. Growing. The author of Hebrews directs us to “fix our eyes on Jesus,” the centerpiece of Christianity, the One in whom our faith is placed. As we embrace all He is, has done, and is doing to secure our salvation our faith will be more deeply anchored as it rests in Him.
Finding the Forgotten God—A Survey of the Minor Prophets
Tuesday mornings from 9:30-11:00am in the Living Room (weekly)
Infant through preschool childcare provided
August 22-November 21
Through the prophet Hosea the Lord laments that His people have forgotten their God. Through the messages of the Minor Prophets we will discover the many ways that the Lord had been forgotten by His people and the many ways He had revealed Himself to them with the intent that His people would remember and return to the God who chose and entered into a covenant relationship with them. Sadly, in our day, God is forgotten in many of the same ways. Through this study we will be challenged to consider our own relationship with the God who chose us and calls us His own. Join us as we explore the timely messages of the 12 Minor Prophets, Hosea to Malachi.
1 Peter—A Living Hope in Christ, by Jen Wilkin
Wednesday evenings from 6:40-8:00pm in Room E (weekly)
Infant through preschool childcare provided
$13 workbook fee
September 6-November 15
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance.
He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week. (from www.lifeway.com)
The Book of Hebrews—Persevering in Faith
Thursday mornings from 6:30-7:30am at various homes (weekly)
Begins September 14
Charles Spurgeon once wrote, “By perseverance the snail reached the ark.” And it has been said that no matter how slow you go, at least you’re lapping everyone on the couch. Funny...but how do we persevere in faith when there are overwhelming distractions in our lives? How do we get off the couch? And where do we find the motivation to keep putting one foot in front of the other? Our study this fall will be the book of Hebrews, a letter of encouragement to first-century Jewish believers who, under persecution, were having a difficult time moving forward in faith. Hebrews likens our faith to a race; and it’s not just a sprint, it’s a marathon! So get up early and lace up your Adidas. On your mark...get set...come!

Hand In Hand
Encouraging, Loving, and Supporting
Hand in Hand is comprised of women who have a heart to reach out and walk along-side, for a period of time, those women who, due to unique circumstances in their lives, are in need of extra encouragement, love, and support. The goal of this team is to link a sister moving through a faith-testing season with another sister who can help point her to God, move forward in faith, plug into body life in a meaningful way, and meet practical needs as they arise when possible. To help with this ministry, please contact Mary Ann Fredstrom at 402-261-8588 or email@example.com.
