ABIDE - A STUDY OF 1,2,3 JOHN

Jen Wilkin (Author)

Tuesdays at 9:30 AM in Room D100, led by Jennifer Adams

Dates: January 10 – March 14

How can we hold onto assurance of our faith? How can we discern the truth from a lie? How can we know God loves us? In these three short letters, the apostle John reminds an early church facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it. And he reminds us, as well. In this 10-session Bible study on the letters of 1, 2, and 3, John, Jen Wilkin helps you see how two thousand years later, his words call to Christians in similar challenges to recall a great salvation and to abide in the truth.

Tuesdays at 6:30 PM at the home of Lori Kauffman (1738 Jefferson St.), led by Lori Kauffman

Dates: January 10 – March 14

Dates: January 10 – February 14

That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.

Explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John.
You will learn to:
• Trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment
from knowing who Jesus is.
• Stop living like a slave to your circumstances by training your heart to
embrace the life-giving freedom God wants for you.

god of deliverance

Jen Wilkin (Author)

Wednesdays at 6:00 PM in Room C103, led by Jennifer Windhorst

Dates: January 11 – March 15

“Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph” (Exodus 1:8).

With that introduction, we enter the story of the Hebrew people in the Book of Exodus. No longer under the protection of their forefather Joseph, the children of Israel became slaves to the Egyptians. But God was raising up a deliverer in Moses, to lead His people from bondage to freedom so they could worship Him.

The exodus of the Israelites shapes our understanding of the whole Bible, its themes reverberating all the way to Revelation. Exodus is the birth narrative of a nation unmistakably guided by the Great Deliverer.

Benefits:
• Learn the deeper theological implications of stories you’ve known for years.
• Understand how God protects His children and prioritizes their worship of Him above all else.
• Explore how God provided deliverance for His children to be able to worship Him freely and how it affects our lives today.

GRACE FILLED MARRIAGE

Tim Kimmel (Author)

Wednesdays at 6:00 PM in Room A201, led by Matt & Heather Rudy

Dates: January 11 – March 1

Couples come to the altar bursting with love for each other. Yet, based on how many marriages are unfulfilling, unhappy, or worse yet, end in divorce, the love that gets couples married isn't enough to keep couples married. Maybe if we had the ability to love unconditionally, like God does, love would be enough…but we don't. Therefore, love falls short. Love isn't enough to save struggling m

This study explores a radical hypothesis: Most marriages don't fail because they lack love…they fail because they lack grace.

Grace can make good marriages into great marriages. Grace can bring intimacy and restoration to broken marriages. Grace means giving your spouse something they desperately need, but don't necessarily deserve…things like kindness, forgiveness, and the benefit of the doubt. And the best part is that if we focus on grace, the love we so desire with our spouse will naturally follow.

in his image

Jen Wilkin (Author)

Mondays at 6:30 PM in Room C105, led by Kayla Baker & Kate Moore

Sometimes we ask What is God's will for my life? when we should really be asking Who should I be? The Bible has an answer: Be like the very image of God.

By exploring ten characteristics of who God is - holy, loving, just, good, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise - this book helps us understand who God intends for us to be. Through Christ, the perfect reflection of the image of God, we will discover how God's own attributes impact how we live, leading to freedom and purpose as we follow his will and are conformed to his image.
