Jeremiah - Women's Bible Study-Daring to Hope in an Unstable World
Learn to surrender to God's will and rest your hope in Him alone. When we look around at today's world, hope usually isn't the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope - a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start?
Study Guide (optional): $13.00

Letters To The Church
By Francis Chan
Beginning Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 4:00 PM

If God had it His way, what would our churches look like? When Jesus returns, will He find us caring for His Bride-even more than for our own lives? Letters to the Church reminds us of how powerful, how glorious the Church once was … and calls us to once again be the Church God intended us to be. Join us in this 9-session study. Book: $13

What is Lent
Early Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church that before the Easter celebration there should be a forty-day season of spiritual preparation. During this season converts to the faith were prepared for Holy Baptism.
It was also a time when those who had committed serious sins were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness and restored to participation in the life of the Church. In this way the whole congregation was reminded of the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the need we all have to renew our faith.In this season, we desire to turn our hearts more fully toward the Divine. We will use these next 40 days to examine our lives and work to eliminate habits that distract us from the holy, or to embrace habits that point us toward the holy. We pray that in these days ahead we will turn more fully toward Christ so that our hearts are aligned to our treasure
