Encountering the Healing Power of Forgiveness By Shawn Lantz (Monday Night and Tuesday Morning)
Where was God during my deepest times of betrayal by others? If I forgive, does that mean I condone the hurt done to me? Have I forgiven someone if I relive the pain every time I hear his or her name? Does forgiveness always mean reconciliation? If you have asked these questions, you are not alone. In this 9 week journey, come and search out biblical answers to these and more questions as you look into Joseph's life and his family in the book of Genesis. This study will have 5 sessions of homework (with 2 weeks to complete) and lots of discussion (no DVD).
Living Beyond Yourself (Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit) By Beth Moore (Monday Night)
You can know the freedom of a life filled with the fruit of the Spirit. Through this study, you'll come to appreciate the supernatural aspects of the fruit and that you cannot grow, learn or produce the fruit on your own. As you walk with God, He develops in you the fruit of the Spirit. A Spirit-filled life truly results in living beyond yourself. This is an in-depth 11 week study with a weekly DVD, discussion time and 5 sessions of daily homework (with 2 weeks to complete).
To Live is Christ By Beth Moore (Monday Night)
Get to know the man who said: "To live is Christ and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:21) More than any other person, Paul provides us an example of sold-out servanthood. He understood what it means to die daily, crucified with Christ. As a result, Paul shows us how to live fully as a bond slave to Christ. Each of the 11 sessions will include discussion, listening to a DVD and then 5 sessions of daily homework (with 2 weeks to complete).
James: Mercy Triumphs By Beth Moore (Monday Night)
James forces us to face the implications of our faith. Be inspired to put your faith into action in practical ways as you get to know both the man and the Book of James. In this 8 week study, you will explore the concepts such as joy, hardship, faith, wisdom, single-mindedness, the tongue, humility, prayer and more. Each session will include a DVD, group discussion and then 5 sessions of homework (with 2 weeks to complete).
Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy By Beth Moore (Thursday Morning)
This study deals with Daniel's life as he faced the kind of pressures and temptations Christians encounter today. It also explores thrilling prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Christ. Each of the 11 sessions will include discussion, listening to a DVD and then 5 sessions of daily homework (with 2 weeks to complete).
