I Give Up

Online class for women

February 18 – March 25 
7-8:30 p.m. via Zoom

Join Rev. Terri Henkel and Women’s Ministry Directory Stephanie Newton for “I Give Up,” women’s Bible study written by Christian recording artist and bestselling author Laura Story. From the class description: 

“It’s normal. It’s natural. It’s human to want to be in control.  

“But when your need for peace surpasses your desire for control, God–who truly uses all things for our good–demonstrates how much we can trust him. The very act of completely surrendering our will to his can become the one act that will change your life forever.  

“Laura Story demonstrates the ironic joy found when we surrender it all to God and simply give up. Surrendering expectations and power is not a step-by-step process but a willful, daily decision worth every single ounce of effort.” 

Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues 

Online class

Wednesdays, Feb. 3-March 24 
7-8 p.m. via Zoom

The seven deadly sins are those spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship with God and one another – pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, greed and lust. The goal of this study is to show us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the “seven lively virtues.” Facilitated by Discipleship Director Wes Maston.

Breathe

Online class for women

Tuesdays, Feb. 2-March 2
7-8:30 p.m. via Zoom

Moms often give of themselves completely, pouring themselves out to fill the cups of their families, friends and community. For many moms during the pandemic, this has left us feeling empty and exhausted. Making time for ourselves and for our relationship with God gets put on the back burner.

Let’s reset for 2021 and prioritize our time and relationship with God, the one who pours into us. Let’s prioritize peace in our hearts and minds in community with other moms in this fiveweek study of Breathe, by Priscilla Shirer.

Please join Janet Mann and Beth Simpson as we take time to breathe and break away from the bondage of busyness to recharge in the presence of God.

The Once & Future Church

Online class

Tuesdays, Feb. 2-March 23
7-8 p.m. via Zoom

After a year like 2020, do any of us know what church even is? Are we entering a new normal? Was the old normal even all that normal? When the pandemic ends what will church even be? What is it supposed to be? That is what this class is all about, figuring out the church—what it should be, what it is, and what it is becoming. Led by Mike Davis.

Financial Peace University

Online class

Wednesday, Feb. 3-March 31
6:30-7:30 p.m. via Zoom

Minister of Administration René Watson will lead a virtual Financial Peace class starting Feb. 3. Partial scholarships are available – contact René to have a confidential conversation.
