Live a Praying Life

by Jennifer Kennedy Dean

Starts Week of September 24th 

13 weeks    $15 for the book

Let’s go back to the biblical basics of prayer, cleaning out myths about prayer to rev up a powerful, ongoing connection to God that can invigorate every aspect of a Christians life. The author tackles the complex theological questions: If God is sovereign, why pray? If prayer is not a way to change God's mind, what is it? Prayer is a way, Jennifer illustrates, for God to send His power and provision into the world through His people. The study takes a detailed look at prayers purpose, process, promise, and practice.

In the Dust of the Rabbi

by Ray Vander Laan

Starts Sunday October 21  6:30-8:30 PM

5 weeks

$10 workbook

Do you ever feel like you are a follower of Jesus, but from a distance? "Follow a Rabbi, drink in his words, and be covered with the dust of his feet," says the ancient Jewish proverb. In Jesus' day, disciples followed their Rabbi so closely that they would be covered with the dust kicked up by the Rabbi's feet. Come, discover how you can get dusty and be closer to your Rabbi, Jesus, by doing what he does.

Five interactive sessions take you on a journey to the land and culture in which the disciples learned to follow Jesus.

Messy Grace

by Caleb Kaltenbach

Starts Monday November 5th 7:00-9:00 PM

4 weeks

Journal cost $10

Very few issues in Christianity are as divisive as the acceptance of the LGBT community in the church.  Many Christians lean toward on of two extremes:  Sacrificing truth for the sake of grace, or sacrificing grace for the sake of truth.  Jesus was able to love all people and yet still hold onto his beliefs.  So can you.  Even when it’s messy.

This study combines biblical teaching from Caleb Kaltenbach, a pastor with gay parents, with stirring testimonies from an author with a transgender sister, a college student who lived a double life, a former lesbian hip-hop artist—now married to a man, and a celibate pastor who’s same-sex attracted.

7 weeks

$17 study book

Moms are under SO.  MUCH.  PRESSURE.  And we don’t just feel the pressure to be “good enough” for our kids.  We also feel the pressure to be “good enough” for God—in and through our parenting.

The good news of the gospel changes how we live and, therefore, how we parent.  Get ready to breathe deeper, walk lighter, and start parenting in the freedom for which Christ has set you free!
