James

Starting Monday, April 26, 2021

Rosco Lockhart

Mondays: 7:30 – 9 p.m. via ZOOM

Men

(Free Book)

Perhaps of all the books in the New Testament, James most squarely focuses on results. His pull-no-punches approach to spiritual maturity, his preference for action over words, makes his text the perfect backdrop for a study of how to grow in our faith.

Beloved author and teacher, Warren Wiersbe, leads you through this practical book with advice on how to overcome temptation, controlling the tongue, effective prayer, and how to practice what the Bible teaches. If you are going to make progress in these areas, you will need a growing faith and dependence on Christ because as James claims, “Every good and perfect gift is from above.”

Freeing Jesus

Starting Monday, April 26, 2021

Facilitator: Josh Patterson

Mondays: 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. via ZOOM

Men and Women

(Book can be purchased on Amazon)

“How can you still be a Christian?” 

This is the most common question Diana Butler Bass is asked today. It is a question that many believers ponder as they wrestle with disappointment and disillusionment in their church and its leadership.  But while many Christians have left their churches, they cannot leave their faith behind.

In Freeing Jesus, Bass challenges the idea that Jesus can only be understood in static, one-dimensional ways and asks us to instead consider a life where Jesus grows with us and helps us through life’s challenges in several capacities: as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence.

Freeing Jesus is an invitation to leave the religious wars behind and rediscover Jesus in all his many manifestations, to experience Jesus beyond the narrow confines we have built around him. It renews our hope in faith and worship at a time when we need it most.

Do It Afraid

Starting Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Facilitators: Sharon Dockery

Tuesdays: 6:45 – 8:00 p.m. via ZOOM

Men and Women

Fear is the devil’s favorite tool in the toolbox of schemes he uses to destroy God’s good plan for you. He uses it to hold you back and prevent progress in your relationships, career, and more.

In Do It Afraid, Joyce Meyer explains that fear is everywhere and affects everyone. It rules many people, but it doesn’t have to rule you any longer. She will teach you how to:

  • Understand fear and recognize how it works in your life.
  • Confront those fears that are holding you back.
  • Change your mindset for lasting freedom from some of the most common fears people face.

Remember, courage isn’t the absence of fear; it is learning how to move forward in the presence of fear. Courageous people do what they believe in their hearts they should do, no matter how they feel or what doubts fill their minds. When you take ownership of your problems and open your heart to God, He will help bring light into darkness so that you can be free.

Be the Bridge

Starting Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Facilitator: Jill Lin

Tuesdays: 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. via ZOOM

Adults

In an era where we seem to be increasingly divided along racial lines, many are hesitant to step into the gap, fearful of saying or doing the wrong thing. At times the silence, particularly within the church, seems deafening.

But change begins with an honest conversation among a group of Christians willing to give a voice to unspoken hurts, hidden fears, and mounting tensions.

Along with prayers, discussion questions, and other resources to enhance group engagement, Be the Bridge presents a compelling vision of what it means for every follower of Jesus to become a bridge builder—committed to pursuing justice and racial unity in light of the gospel.

The Prophetic Advantage – Part 1

Starting Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Facilitators: JoAnn Adams and Linda Loomis

Tuesdays: 7:00 – 9 p.m. via ZOOM

Women

The world is in desperate need of the voice of God. If the church is to be a force in the world. If Christians are to be a transformative voice to the next generation. We need to be tuned in to what God wants to tell us.

In The Prophetic Advantage Michelle McClain delivers a practical, comprehensive, and balanced look at the role of the prophetic ministry in today’s world. Using the lion as an example, she encourages believers to rise up in boldness, power, and strength.

The world needs prophetic people who will declare righteousness. We need the prophetic advantage, and we will not see breakthrough in our jobs, churches, families, financial situations, health, and homes without it.

Hearing God

Starting Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Facilitator: Chase Douglas

Tuesdays: 7:00 – 8:45 p.m. via ZOOM

Young Adults: Ages 21-35 years old

“God spoke to me.” “The Spirit spoke to my heart.” “God revealed the idea to me.” Being close to God means communicating with him–telling him what is on our hearts in prayer and hearing and understanding what he is saying to us. It is this second half of our conversation with God that is so important but that can also be so difficult. How do we hear his voice? How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? What role does the Bible play? What if what God says to us is not clear? The key, says best-selling author Dallas Willard, is to focus not so much on individual actions and decisions as on building our personal relationship with our Creator. In this study you’ll gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God’s voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom.

The Knowledge of the Holy – Part II

Starting Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Facilitator: Belle Bisceglio

Tuesdays: 7 – 9 p.m. via ZOOM

Women

(Book can be purchased on Amazon)

“Teach us, O God, that nothing is necessary to Thee. Were anything necessary to Thee that thing would be the measure of Thine imperfection: and how could we worship one who is imperfect?” Join Belle Bisceglio and this group as they continue in Part II of this classic devotional that has moved the hearts of Christians for over a century! Each chapter focuses on one attribute of God–from God’s infinitude, immutability, grace, goodness… this book is perhaps one of the most theologically rich AND approachable devotionals in the world!

Forty Day Journey with Howard Thurman

Starting Wednesday, April 28, 2021

Facilitator: Mary L. Johnson

Wednesdays: 7 – 8:30 p.m. via ZOOM

Men and Women

(Books can be purchased on Amazon or Christianbook.com)

(You will need a Bible)

Where are you on your spiritual journey, your “faith journey”? Do you need clarity, peace, and connection with God? Do you need to recenter? Do you need to meet with God on the island of peace within your soul? Join Mary Johnson for a forty-day journey with Howard Thurman using the spiritual practice of journaling to recenter.

Howard Thurman was an influential American author, philosopher, theologian, educator, and civil rights leader. Strongly influenced by his grandmother, a former slave, who raised him and a Quaker mystic under whom he studied, Thurman adopted a philosophy of activism rooted in faith, guided by spirit, and maintained in peace.

Amor of God

Starting Wednesday, April 28, 2021

Facilitator: Debbie Burrows

Wednesdays: 7:00 – 8:30 a.m. via ZOOM

Women

{Book can be purchased on Amazon)

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

Armor of God

La Armadura de Dios (The Armor of God)

Este libro estudia principios bíblicos para la vida diaria del creyente. El cristiano debe caminar por la vida con la seguridad en la salvación; sabiendo que tiene acceso al Trono de Dios pues es justificado por la fe en la sangre del Cordero; compartiendo y viviendo el evangelio de la Paz; batallando contra las huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestes y estableciendo el Reino de Dios.

Es un estudio pieza por pieza de la armadura que Dios ha dado al creyente.
