Homegrown – Cultivating Kids in the Fruits of the Spirit

Room 150
Bible Study Book: $14.00
Six-Week Studies: October 14 through November 18
6 – 7 p.m.

As parents, we want to raise children who know God, love Him, and share His love with the world. But how do you prepare a spiritual seedling to become fully grown?

Raising great kids is less about our own parenting skills and more about God’s power. When the Holy Spirit lives through us, we model the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—for our children.

In this daily devotional guide and family activity plan from Dr. Josh and Christi Straub, you’ll discover the fruit of the Spirit in the context of your parenting, learn how to cultivate growth in your children, and explore practical ways to live out the fruit of the Spirit together.

JESUS Among Secular Gods

A Bible study by Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale
Led by Pastor Frank Lewis, Fellowship Hall
Bible Study Book: $14.00
Six-Week Studies: October 14 through November 18
6 – 7 p.m.

Learn how to confront the empty promises of cultural philosophies and develop confidence sharing the claims of Christ.

As belief in the secular gods of atheism, hedonism, relativism, and humanism continues to grow, it is more important than ever for each of us to be able to defend and share the claims of Christ. Of course, this clash of worldviews is nothing new. Throughout Paul’s writing in the New Testament are references to elemental forces that seek to separate believers from the love and truth of Jesus.

Not only has the Christian worldview been devalued and dismissed by modern culture, but its believers are also openly ridiculed as irrelevant. This Bible study challenges the popular and trending philosophies of 2020, skillfully pointing out the fallacies in their claims and presenting compelling evidence for absolute truth as found in Jesus and revealed in Scripture.

This study will provide you with the knowledge to articulate your faith that Jesus stands tall above all other gods.

I’ll Have it God’s Way – Living Fully Now and Into Your Forever

Written and Led by Hattie Bryant, Room 340 or via Zoom
Study Book: $20.00
Six-Week Studies: October 14 through November 18
6 – 7 p.m 

Transitioning from this life to eternity might be harder than you think.
Our fears about death, lack of planning, and a complex healthcare system push us into a default end-of-life approach, instead of one that embraces our values and desires. While 70–80% say they want to die peacefully and pain-free at home, surrounded by friends and family, fewer than 30% do so.

Forms didn’t work for Hattie’s mom in 1990, and they do not always work today. This study guides you gently through the steps from a vague idea of how to make your wishes known to a workable plan. It equips you with the biblical truth, healthcare facts, and practical steps you need to implement now. Join us if you’re the adult child of aging parent or 65+.

Studies have shown that Americans are the most anxious people in the world. We take the most medication for it, see doctors to treat it, and spend fortunes trying to relieve it. How have we let our fears get the better of us? In Anxious for Nothing, Max Lucado leads readers to reflect on the promises of Philippians 4:4-8. This passage from Paul’s epistle contains an antidote to anxiety that will help you develop a mindset of resilience. Rediscover the power of prayer and take control of your thoughts. You can rest in “the Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding.”

Uninvited – Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely

Six-Week Women’s Study
September 14 through October 19
Mondays at noon via Zoom
Led by Becky Sumrall

Rejection is a tough emotion to deal with. It’s harsh, hurtful, daunting. It has an ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.

In Uninvited, Lysa TerKeurst takes you to significant places in the Holy Land to help you explore the roots of rejection, the way other relationships get tainted because of a past rejection, and the truth about what it looks like to live loved.
