Faithful, abundant, true by Beth Moore

March 22-May 3 – $25
Faithful, Abundant, True: Three Lives Going Deeper Still - Leader Kit. Join Beth Moore, Kay Arthur, and Priscilla Shirer in a women's Bible study recorded live at the Orlando Deeper Still conference.
- Kay Arthur teaches from basically, the entire book of Hebrews! Hebrews is both an example of God's faithfulness and a challenge to believers to be faithful in difficult times.
- Priscilla Shirer teaches from Ephesians 3:20-21 on God's abundance. A fundamental basis for every believer is the absolute reality that God can do whatever He chooses to do. God's ability empowers our faithfulness.
- Beth Moore teaches on the topic of discernment. In these difficult days it is absolutely essential that we learn to trust the Holy Spirit to enable us to determine what is true and what is false.
While these three women each speak on the distinctive topic the Holy Spirit had lead them to teach, the messages result in a marvelous blend. Kay challenges us to faithfulness in difficult days. Priscilla points to the essential of trust in God's ability, and Beth teaches on how to discern truth from error in these difficult days.
Women can use the DVD-based videos and versatile study guide in a retreat setting or for a seven-session Bible study with two weeks of teaching each from Kay, Priscilla, and Beth. In a seventh-session, both hilarious and helpful, all three teachers answer questions submitted by attendees at the conference.
Participants will watch the video sessions and unpack the rich teaching through Scripture study and personal application. Made to fit women's busy schedules, this brief format will take most women 15 to 30 minutes daily. As a bonus, Faithful, Abundant, and True Member Book includes a partnership with HomeLife Magazine in which each of the three speakers' section also includes an article from HomeLife that illustrates faithfulness, abundance, and truth.

January 27-March 2 – $10 and purchase book and workbook on your own here.
When Margaret Feinberg learned she had cancer, she knew she would need great strength to overcome it. She believed the weapon she selected for the battle would change everything. And she decided that weapon would be joy.
Joy Is More Than Whimsy.
It’s the Weapon You Can Use to Fight Life’s Greatest Battles.
Through months of treatment, questions, and hopes, Margaret discovered that joy is a far more dynamic force than most of us realize. It has the power to reignite our passion for laughter and celebration. It can free us to rise above endless demands as we become more content and thankful. It can change unchangeable circumstances and bring a peace rooted in the remarkable love of God.
Here Margaret shares her journey of using joy to fight back fear, regret, and pain. Whatever you face today, discover with Margaret how to embrace a way of living that’s deeper and fuller than you’ve ever known—a life radiant with joy.
The Broken Way by ann voskamp
THursdays – 9:30-11:00 a.m. (Childcare Available)
March 23-April 27 – $10 and purchase book and workbook on your own here.
New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts Ann Voskamp sits at the edge of her life and all of her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This is the one begging question that’s behind every single aspect of our lives – and one that The Broken Way – also a New York Times bestseller – rises up to explore in the most unexpected ways.
This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. For those whose hopes and dreams and love grew so large it broke their willing hearts. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness. You could be one of the Beloved who is broken – and still lets yourself be loved.
You could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain, but actually within it.
You could discover and trust this broken way – the way to not be afraid of broken things.
essentials of the new testament
Fridays 9:30-11 a.m. At Lynne Lucky's home
New Testament Essentials introduces us to the New Testament in three parts: The revelation of God in Jesus Christ, the indwelling of God in the church by the Holy Spirit and the present and coming kingdom of God. In each of the twelve studies the author helps us to hear Scripture in its own historical and cultural context before guiding us to apply it to our own context. Jesus’ life, teachings and works were thoroughly grounded in the Hebrew Scriptures. And so each session includes a special feature called "Connecting to the Old Testament." Through this you will begin to discover the links between the two testaments and gain a fuller sense of our unfolding salvation history. Following a format similar to the other volumes of the Essentials series, each of the 12 sessions includes the following elements:
A memory verse
A Bible study
A life application section
"Connecting to the Old Testament" feature
