Tuesday Morning Adult Bible Studies

Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance
A Great Adventure Bible Study led by Deacon Mike Bickerstaff (Begins January 31, 2017)
Tuesday Mornings from 10 to 12 Noon in McNamee Hall

By Jeff Cavins and Thomas Smith - Paul’s letter to the Ephesians reveals many remarkable gifts that we as Christians are given in the Church. This letter tells us about the nature of the Church – as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. It shows us the great inheritance that awaits us as sons and daughters, adopted fully into the family of God. It reveals how God’s great love for us can transform our daily lives if we allow it. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance is an 8-part Bible study that will enrich your faith, and show you how to live it out.

Wednesday Evening Adult Bible Study

Walking Toward Eternity 

Walking Toward Eternity is an inspiring series, brought to you by Jeff Cavins and Ascension Press, designed to help participants live their faith more fully. Through daily prayerful meditation with Scripture (lectio divina), they will be drawn into an intimate and life-changing encounter with Christ.

Daring to Walk the Walk, the first series of Walking Toward Eternity, introduces seven key virtues and outlines practical steps for living them out in daily life. 

Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart, the second series of Walking Toward Eternity, is a challenging study that can open our eyes to obstacles in our Christian walk such as greed, envy, fear and shame. Through prayer, reflection, guidance, and the aid of the Holy Spirit, we begin to engage these difficulties in a positive way as we continue toward our goal of union with Christ.
