A plan for Prayer - Max Lucado/Pricilla Shirer Facilitated by Sandy Campbell
A Woman’s battle plan for serious, specific, and strategic prayer-Do you tend to doze off when you pray? Your thoughts zig and then zag and then zig again? You know some people who excel in prayer, they inhale heaven and exhale God. But you are a certified wimp. It’s not that you don’t pray at all. We all pray some; But wouldn’t we all like to pray…More? Better? Deeper? Stronger? With more fire, faith, fervency. But we have kids to feed, bills to pay etc, etc.…But this is war!
We simply don’t have the luxury of playing nice with prayer. We are in a battle, and prayer is our not-so-secret weapon in this fight. You see Prayer is the portal that brings the power of heaven down to earth. And if you are sick of ineffective prayer, then join me in this study as we form a plan, a strategy for this war.
We will engage in a study incorporating Max Lucado’s book “Before Amen” and Pricilla Shirer’s book “Fervent”. We will look at simple “Pocket prayers” and deeper more radical prayers looking at our passion, our focus, our identity and many others as we form our plan of consistent powerful prayer. Prayer must become our Lifeline, and our lifestyle. No Cost
Entrusted - Bible Study Book: A Study of 2 Timothy, facilitated by Cate Ange
We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.
In this Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness. Cost $13.00
The book of Acts, facilitated by Jennifer Morgan
Acts continues the narrative that Luke began in his gospel and is the first written history of the Christian church. Acts covers the period in Christian history between the resurrection of Jesus and the death of Paul in which Christian ideas and beliefs were being formed and the church was being organized. By studying Acts, we can better understand the writing of the Gospels, as well as other New Testament books.
