Of Mess and Moxie
Facilitator: Lia Page and Co-Facilitator: Mary Allen
Book $14
In this new book, beloved author Jen Hatmaker parlays
her own triumphs and tragedies into a sigh of relief for all
normal, fierce women everywhere. She offers a reminder to
those of us who sometimes hide in the car eating crackers
that we do have the moxie to get back up and get back
out. We can choose to live undaunted “in the moment”
no matter what the moments hold, and lead vibrant,
courageous, grace-filled lives. Join us for this great book
club style class. We will have a video each week along with
discussion. There is a book and light homework.

Who is Jesus?
Facilitators: Aleta Sinclair and JoNell Gay
Book: $9
We will begin with the gospel of Matthew
as a starting point for discovering how the
Christian community wrestled with the coming
of Jesus – his life, actions, missions, death and
resurrection – and the implications His life had for their lives
and their communities of faith. Participants are invited to join
this conversation and to study afresh this story of Jesus and to
learn more about their calling to discipleship and to community.
There is a workbook and light reading.

The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer

All day, every day, an invisible ware wages around us. We
invite you to join us as we bring to light this war and learn
how to defeat the enemy. This study will challenge you
to suit up, stand firm, and secure victory in your life as a
woman of God. In this class, based on Ephesians 6, you will
learn how to develop an action plan to get serious, specific
and strategic in your prayer life. There is a weekly video, a
book and a moderate amount of homework.

Simplify, Drop-In Class

Christianity and World Religions by Adam Hamilton
Facilitator: Robin Lea and Co-Facilitator: Marcie Young
Book: $13
Christianity and World Religions is a video-based smallgroup
study that explores four major world religionsHinduism,
Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compares
the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This study
deals openly and honestly with questions people ask about
other religions. Hamilton treats the world religions with
great respect, recognizing the unique contributions of each.
There is a book with light reading and no homework.

God’s Covenants
Facilitator: Cathrine Larrea
Every believer should have a firm grasp
of the Biblical truths concerning God’s
Covenants. The thread of covenant is woven
throughout the Old and New Testament and
is the foundation for an understanding of
our relationship with God. In this class we will look at the
covenants of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus
Christ. This study will give you a deep sense of gratitude for
what God has accomplished for you in sending His Son to “cut”
covenant. No book, but please bring your Bible.
