Courage – A Call to Brave Faith

By examining the life of Christ, we will begin to understand what true courage is and how God works in the lives of Christ’s followers as they exhibit a brave faith. Once we have eyes to see what Jesus is showing us, once we have ears to hear, we can begin to find the remarkable life Jesus offers us. Open to adult men & women.

I Am Restored

None of us can outrun the wounds of our past. We can face our past willingly, or our lives will force us to face it. But while digging into the deep corners of our souls and excavating our past is uncomfortable, this is where God makes a masterpiece out of our mess. Through this study, you can begin to take steps toward healing and restoration.

Habakkuk – A Bible Story

A verse-by-verse study through the book of Habakkuk. How do we praise the Lord and trust Him even when life is hard? What does it mean to trust God when life does not go as planned? This study on the book of Habakkuk seeks to answer these questions. We will learn how to pray when we don’t know what to pray, and how to trust when things just don’t make sense. This is a women’s only bible study.
