new Women's Tuesday Bible Study
Begins Tuesday, January 7, 9:30am in Room 212
The Women's Tuesday Bible Study will be starting a new book - The Christian & Obedience: Living Daily in God's Grace by Bill Bright. Description: Many Christians are frustrated, defeated, and fruitless because they are not walking in obedience to the Lord Jesus. Obedience to our Lord is the natural and spiritual outgrowth of our faith. Obeying God demonstrates our love for Him and results in many personal and spiritual blessings. In this study you will discover: why it is so important to obey God, how to obey God from your heart, how to be secure in your fellowship with God, how to live daily in God's grace, why you need not fear what others think of you.

Life Groups
A Life Group is a small group of 8-12 people that focuses on three priorities – sharing, study, and support. Life Group members will commit to meet together at least every other week through the school season—and even better, through the summer. We call these “Life Groups” because they are focused on (1) helping us grow in our life in Christ and (2) sharing life together. If you are interested in joining a life group or starting one up, please contact our Life Group Coordinator, Pam Jacobs .
