Wednesday Mornings or Wednesday Evenings: Acts
Meets Wednesday mornings beginning September 18 - December 4 from 9:30-11:30am

From tiny beginnings among Jesus’ disciples, the church exploded into a worldwide force in just a few years. How? Jesus left His followers with a mission, and the Holy Spirit moved mightily through them to fulfill it. We call the book "The Acts of the Apostles," but we should think of it as "The Acts of Jesus through the Holy Spirit”. Luke’s account of how the gospel was carried from Jerusalem to Rome—despite every conceivable obstacle—will help us to see how the acts of the Holy Spirit through the apostles inform our acts today and assure us that God will also help us discover and live out our mission in the world. This study covers the entire book of Acts over 2 semesters, 12 sessions each semester.
Wednesday Mornings: Beth Moore’s Believing God
Meets Wednesday mornings beginning September 11 - November 20 from 9:30-11:30am
The bride of Jesus Christ in our generation is nearly paralyzed by unbelief. God is calling His bride to a fresh and lavish anointing of faith. This in-depth study examines the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others as examples of persons who believed God.
"God confronted me with the truth that though I had believed in Him for many years, I had hardly begun to believe Him. He made something clear to me that He has sent me forth to say to you: God is so much more than we have yet acknowledged and experienced. He is capable of tremendously more than we have witnessed. I have become utterly convinced that we see so little primarily because we believe Him for so little. Here's the great news: God wants to change all that!” Beth Moore
Wednesday Evenings: Amazed and confused by heather zempel
Meets Wednesday evenings beginning September 18 - December 4 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Most people have prayed for something or someone in earnest, seeking God’s will, only to be left confused by God’s response. Sometimes we ask, “Why would a good God allow bad things to happen to good people?” In Amazed and Confused, Heather Zempel tackles this question head-on by exploring the book of Habakkuk.
