Bible Study & Prayer Groups

Women's Bible Study

Tuesdays at 9 AM - Women of the Word: 10 Questions Christians are Asking by David Jeremiah
Hospitality Suite, Carla Bryan and Women's Ministry Team, Study Guide $17

Join Priscilla Shirer in a 7-session video Bible study on the life of Elijah. In this faith-building study, you'll discover how Elijah's obedience to God kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven's fire to fall. God also is working in your life today to fashion a fiery, bold faith that will empower you to share the hope of Christ with your family, friends, co-workers, and community.

Thursdays at 9:30 AM - Vessels of the Word: Women in the Bible
Hospitality Suite, Jan Mingee & Joy Biggers

We all want the love of the Lord to shine through our lives, helping us to be the best Christian women we can be. What better example can we have than the women of the Bible? We will be studying 64 women mentioned in the scriptures and will learn how we can apply what we learn to our everyday lives. This study will help us gain insight into God's will for our lives and provide warm fellowship with other ladies. Please plan to join us!

Wednesday Electives @ 6:30 PM

NEW! Tipping Point (The Study of End Times) by Jimmy Evans
Prayer Room | Dr. Sherrie Johnson

The prophetic clock is ticking… We are living in tumultuous times.  From corrupt world politics, to global pandemics, to an unprecedented rebellion against God and His Word, humanity has reached a critical stage.  What happens next?  In his best-selling book on the end times, author Jimmy Evans examines biblical prophecies and points to their unmistakable parallels with today's world.  Through an in-depth book study, participants will learn answers to many common questions about these uncertain times.  What IS certain is that we know- ultimately- WHO is in control!

NEW!
The Proverbs Man: Purpose - Perspective - Persistence

Mezzanine 2 | Trevor Booker

The Proverbs Man small group is built on the godly principle that "Iron Sharpens Iron," but only as we allow ourselves to embrace the vulnerability within a small community of like-minded men.

NEW!
Self-Talk, by Karen Stubbs (Young Moms)

Mezzanine 3 | Tori Prokop

You may, or may not, realize it, but you talk to yourself all the time. And, what you say to yourself matters a great deal. In Self-Talk, you'll discover strength and freedom for each day as you create new habits of self-talk based on biblical truth. In this study, we'll look at common self-talk phrases, such as "I'm not a good enough mom," "I'm not equipped to raise my children," and "I'm alone in all of this." Join us as we discover together, as moms, the truth about scripture.

Wednesday Support Groups @ 6:30PM

Anger Management
Chapel | Ioni Castillo, Cynthia Foster & John Ringleb, Registration $25

Everyone gets angry - whether it is directed inward or vented on another. An unhealthy approach to anger is harmful to you and your relationships. This support group will work through understanding the difference and will include regular speakers on sources of anger and paths to healing. This group is good for anyone, as it clarifies our personal boundaries, and the lies we believe about ourselves and others, while focusing on hope and healing in Christ.

SOUL - Survivors of Untimely Loss
Mezzanine 6 | Terri Johnson

For a survivor of a suicide loss, the journey through grief is difficult due to feelings of guilt, awkward encounters with those who do not understand the depth of the loss, and dealing with the stigma that surrounds suicide. If you are a survivor of a suicide loss, please join our SOUL Support Group for weekly conversations toward hope and healing with fellow survivors. Together, we can encourage, support, and pray for one another. The door opens at 6 PM for fellowship, followed by group sharing from 6:30 to 7:45 PM.

The Word for All Ages - Defending the Faith: Recognizing the Marks of a Cult
Chapel | Dorene Royal

Paul warned us that, in later times, some would abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits, and also that Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

This class meets in the Light of Lights Chapel and includes lively hymns and choruses, praise reports, prayer requests, weekly email communications, and regular socials. All ages welcome.

Pathways
Cafe' | Richard Cooke

Faith is far more than a belief system; it infuses all parts of life. Our faith is seen in the way we live our day-to-day lives: what we do, what we talk about, and how we respond to circumstances. God's Word, the Bible, has an answer for every situation we face. Join us each week for interesting topics and subjects, lively discussions, group participation, and a special prayer time with great people. Our goal and desire is to help you discover God's direction for your life! All adult ages welcome.

Good News
Prayer Room | Esther Haas

Biblical prophecy can be a complex subject. For many Christians, the term immediately evokes thoughts of the Apocalypse. It is important to recognize that the role of the prophet was, and continues to be, more about "forth-telling" than "foretelling." In other words, God uses prophets to convey messages of exhortation, correction, instruction, and encouragement to His people. Join us as we study the books of Jeremiah and Ezekiel. All ages welcome.

Life in the Word
Victory Kids Auditorium, Room 120 | Mike & Charlotte Fiddelke

If you are looking for a Sunday school class that offers Bible study, lively group discussion, in-home socials, and friendship that moves past the superficial, this may be the class for you. This spring, we will study 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John. Our goal is to grow spiritually and make a difference for Christ in our sphere of influence. If you think Bible study is boring, we invite you to visit us and find out how relevant and exciting God's Word is. All ages welcome.

Scriptural Enrichment
Family Life Center, Room 116 | Dr. Michael VanDoren
