Financial Peace University

We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God’s ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!

Financial Peace University is the proven plan that will show you how to master budgeting, dump debt, and build wealth.

Men’s Ministry: The Book of Jonah

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM in room F202

Video study facilitated by Men’s Ministry Leaders

At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God’s grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?
 
Far more than a thrilling Sunday school adventure, The Book of Jonah offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of His compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but redeeming those He has called to participate in His reconciling work.

Midweek Bible Study: Joseph –  A Life Study

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM in room H100

Taught by Teaching Pastors and Leaders

Join us as we follow the path of Joseph’s life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God’s sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance.

Women’s Ministry:  Elijah

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall

Video study by Priscilla Shirer, Facilitated by Krisztina White

Elijah emerged as a voice of unapologetic truth during a time of national crisis and moral decline. His ministry was marked by tenacious faith and holy fire – the same kind you will need in order to remain steadfast in current culture.

Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.

Join Priscilla Shirer on this journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

Online – Women’s Ministry:  Loving God and Others – The Heart of True Faith

Live Zoom Teaching, Monday’s at 6:30 PM, starting April 5

Taught by Women’s Ministry Teaching Team

It’s easy to get confused about how to please God. One Bible teacher details a long list of the commands you should be keeping. The next teacher says only grace matters. Who is right? Centuries ago, in answer to this question, Jesus simplified all the rules and regulations of the Law into just two great commands: love God and love people. 

Loving God and Others looks at how these two commands define the heart of Christian faith. As you rest in the certain knowledge of what God calls you to, you will be challenged to live these commands out-and discover how obeying Jesus’ simple commands will transform not only your life but also the lives of those around you.

Join us as we reason through the scriptures together in this no homework Bible study. All the scriptures we will be studying and short questions about the text are in the workbook.
