Nehemiah & Growing in Grace as Disciples | LC 210/212 | Continuing Januaury 10th

Led by Gary Himmler & Richard Zalesak. 

Nehemiah
- After 70 years in exile, the Jews had returned home and rebuilt the temple in Jerusalem. They were able to worship God in their own land, but the city still lay in ruins. The once-great capital of the promised land was a depressing rubble heap exposed to her enemies. When Nehemiah hears this, he sets out to restore the city walls. The book of Nehemiah is about reestablishing God's people both physically and spiritually.

Growing in Grace as Disciples - In the New Testament we are repeatedly urged to seek maturity in the faith. Once we become Christians, how do we grow as believers? In this 5-session class, we will learn more about discipleship or being a careful follower and student of Christ. We will learn and put into practice the life habits or disciples that have been most helpful to Christians throughout the centuries to grow in grace.

This class will also be available online to those who don't feel comfortable coming back on-campus.

The Psalms: A Walk with God | 9:30-11am | LC 214/216 | Resumes January 13th

Led by Beth Hranicky. Most Christians agree that is is important to have time daily with God, but many do not know how to do so. During this study we will walk through the book of Psalms using questions from A 30-Day Walk with God in the Psalms devotional. This class will help you draw closer to your Heavenly Father. By reading, studying, memorizing, meditating on, and praying through the Psalms we learn to live a lifestyle of praise.

40 Verses to Ignite Your faith | 6:30-7:30pm | Zoom | beginning january 27th

Led by Dixie Russo. Many of us have our "go to" verses. The ones we memorize, post on social media, and hang on our walls. But sometimes we need a fresh word or promise for the season we find ourselves in - something that ignites our faith in the face of fear, doubt, loneliness, insecurity, or overwhelming circumstances.

In this study, Laurie Short helps us dig into these "in between" verses we many times just read past. Together we will unearth fresh wisdom, guidance, and encouragement that will help us seek and experience God in new, dynamic ways. I hope you can join us!
