New Classes are forming for Spring Discipleship Training classes that run March 5-April 30 at 5:00 p.m. Options include:
Not a Fan by Kyle Idelman – led by Mike Comer & Drew Johnson – Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus Christ issued a compelling and challenging invitation: “Follow Me.” Jesus is not interested in mere fans. He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He wants completely committed followers. This study will seriously consider what it means for a man to deny one’s self and truly follow Jesus.
Fear and Faith by Trillia Newbill – led by Nancy DeVenuto – Failure, rejection, sickness, losing a loved one, being alone – the fears we carry are many and heavy. Fear can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships and hinder our faith. This study seeks to honestly address the fears that many women face, but does so in the light of God’s call to believe in the One who can (and will!) calm your fears through faith in HIm.
Please sign up as soon as possible! Green registration forms are available on various tables with the bulletins.
There are still several Bible studies going on. Join one today!
