Treasure: Jesus is Worth Everything (Power to Change Ministries)
Led by Clark Byram (E-220), 5:15 pm, begins September 13
More Joy. More Purpose. More Adventure. More to Life. More is something we all want. What if the only way to find more is to give Jesus all that you have?
 Treasure is a journey of discovery – a call to explore your relationship with Christ. In each session, you will follow stories of several people as you discover what it truly means to be fully committed to Jesus. You'll study Scripture, watch a film and work through some discussion questions either with a small group or with your own study coach! What if the abundant life you've been searching for has been right in front of you all along?

Mondays

Discovering What the Future Holds (Kaye Arthur)
Led by Jennifer Finchum (GN - Commons Area), 5:30 pm, begins August 17
Class may be joined at any time during the course of this study. This is a 40 minute NO HOMEWORK Bible Study of Daniel. Why wonder or worry about the future? God has given you a sneak preview. Will there be peace on earth? How long will the world live under the threat of terrorism? Is a one-world ruler on the horizon? God has provided the answers to these questions in the book of Daniel. Childcare will be provided.

Tuesdays

James: Mercy Triumphs (Beth Moore)
Led by Nancy Groover (E-218), 11am-1pm, begins September 15
James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic. See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple. This study in the book of James will teach us how to put our own faith into action. Topics in this study include: joy, hardship, faith, wisdom, gifts, single mindedness, humility and prayer.

Wednesdays

You’ll Get Through This (Max Lucado)
Led by Jerry Hyder (E-218), 6:00 pm, begins September 16
This Bible study offers us hope and help for our turbulent times. God doesn’t promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn’t for Joseph, tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed. By studying the story of Joseph in the Old Testament we will be learning how to trust God to trump evil.

Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath (Priscilla Shirer)
Led by Misty Hedrick (E-229), 5:30 pm, begins September 16
One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. He wants us to be able to walk in freedom and enjoy it. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Counter Culture (David Platt)
Led by Steve Brewer (C-303), 6:00 pm, begins September 16
Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are measured by popular opinion. In his new book, David Platt shows Christians how to actively take a stand on such issues as poverty, sex trafficking, marriage, abortion, racism, and religious liberty — and challenges us to become passionate, unwavering voices for Christ.
