Watch this intro video  to hear a little more about the different classes being offered! 

1st Session: January 15, 22 & 29 (3 weeks). 

Philippians: Finding Victory over Stress, Anxiety and the Trials of Life through Christ led by Bob Dale
Gain insights from Paul's personal experience in overcoming life's  trials through his relationship with Christ. Discover why he could say  "I can do all things through Christ" even while experiencing intense  mental, emotional and physical stress amidst great uncertainty and  bleak circumstances.

Hebrews 6.2: Resurrection of the Dead and Eternal Judgment led by Rick Sinclair and Jonathan Puglia
The resurrection from the dead and promise of eternal life are central  to the faith.  Consider: the Apostles of Jesus witnessed the  resurrected Christ, they preached the resurrection of the dead to the  lost, and they boldly proclaimed it as the hope of the church. Join us
for 3 weeks of in-depth bible study and discover what the Scriptures  teach about the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgement.

2nd Session: March and  February. 

Finding Permanence and Meaning in an Impermanent World: The Book of Ecclesiastes led by Bob Dale (8 week study)
We live in a world where we face uncertainty, evil, and our own  mortality. Is it possible to understand God's plans and purposes? In  the Book of Ecclesiastes, "The Preacher" shares wisdom and insights  that help us understand God's workings and help make sense of our
lives. Discover the comfort, peace, and solid foundation that is yours  through the wisdom of God.

A study for Women:
Jesus said that in this life offenses would come, so how do we respond? Come and learn how to walk in victory instead of taking Satan's Bait. A study of "The Bait of  Satan" by John Bevere led by Nancy Demary (6 week study)
There are biblical truths which are absolutely essential for a healthy  Christian life. Chief among them is our need to deal with the offenses  that we encounter in relationships. In this study, we will take an  in-depth look at John Bevere's book, "The Bait of Satan", and ask the
Holy Spirit to help us work though relational conflicts - even in the  hardest of situations.


We will have our year end contribution statements available this Sunday at each location. Please be sure to pick up yours after the service. 

If you have any questions regarding your statement, please contact the office. 


Mark you calendars for  April 19-25! That is when we will be having our 2018  Presbytery meetings.
