8 Weeks
Led by Jenifer Phillips and Elizabeth Walter
Cost: $10

But feeling alone or uncertain keeps us from setting firm goals. Get My People Going! invites people of all ages into a community experience of naming the areas where we need better health, and then making changes step-by-step that will improve health of body and spirit. Spiritual and physical health are an essential part of being a disciple. Here's your chance.

Encounters with God: 1 & 2 Peter by Henry Blackaby

8 Weeks
Led by Ken James

Cost: $5
 
Let five premier teachers of God's Word lead you to a closer, more intimate understanding of God's message to His people. With the themes of Holy living in a hostile world and having hope in the midst of suffering, find Spiritual maturity as a remedy for false teaching and a right response in light of Christ's second coming. You can see just how relevant these books of the bible are to the times we are living in.
Peter repeatedly points to the Word of God as the primary means of growth for the Christian. Living in close proximity to Jesus Christ for more than three years had provided the apostle Peter the best possible example of what it looked like to live in holiness amid a hostile world. More than any other man who walked the earth, Jesus modeled that lifestyle. Peter therefore pointed his readers in the best possible direction, to Jesus Himself.

Half Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn't Say 

8 Weeks
Led by Danny Walker
Cost: Free

 
Join us as we explore popular sayings that miss the point. They are simple phrases: "God helps those who help themselves," "Love the sinner, hate the sin," and others. They sound Christian - like something you might find in the Bible. We've all heard these words. Maybe we've said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Discover the whole truth by comparing common Christian cliches with the wisdom found in Scripture.
Bring a friend and both of you can journey together toward knowing Jesus' words more confidently. Be a better disciple, and not a Chrisitan cliche.

The Gospel Goes to Work

6 Weeks
Led by Leslie Oglesby
Cost: $5

 
Work is core to our lives. And the gospel is core to our faith. In this Bible study, author and executive coach Stephen Graves introduces a fresh framework that explores not only how the gospel should shape our work but also how it could. Often, taking our faith into the workplace looks like evangelism or moral responsibility. Although there is certainly nothing wrong with either practice, this study takes us further into our faith in such a way that we embody the gospel as a more natural part of our work, office, home or anywhere our work may take us.
