In John:10:10 (MSG), Jesus promises …real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of. We are designed for more. God created us with passion, precision and purpose. He made us for something bigger and better. He wants our lives to be filled with confidence, significance, joy and relationship.
God made us to contribute to His work of restoring this world and bringing in His Kingdom, but the enemy seeks to thwart us through the lies of culture. More and Better seeks to expose the lies that obscure God’s intent while helping to reveal His design for your life.
Classes are held on Mondays from 6:30-8:00pm in room 306/308 (enter Door B).

Beth Moore Women’s Bible Study, Tuesday mornings, 9:00-11:00am in the 100 wing (enter Door F or G). This is an ongoing study that will run from September 25, 2018 – March 12, 2019.
Join us for Beloved Disciple: The Life and Ministry of John
Beth states, “Every disciple and early follower of Christ left a legacy for future believers. John’s legacy was love. Perhaps like no other disciple, John understood that relationship is the point. Every command of Christ and call to obedience is to enhance relationship and place the recipient in a posture the Giver can bless. This study is about finding our way to the heart of Jesus and reclining so closely that our pulse begins to throb in tandem, loving what He loves and hating what He hates.”

Studying the Bible in the order in which events happened is fascinating! You will gain a new perspective as you read God’s Word chronologically. We are using F.

In Ephesians 5:15, Paul says, “Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” What does living wisely mean? What better way to learn than from the man who asked God to be made wise and was granted it – SOLOMON. Join us as we do a verse-by-verse study of PROVERBS and seek God’s wisdom. We will also be looking at ROMANS — such a marvelous book to get to know Jesus better! No pre-registration is needed. All are welcome!
