Gideon (by the Priscilla Shirer) - Led by Beth Buckholtz and Wendy Creel
This 7-session study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, learn to see them as the gifts given specifically and strategically by God. If you've ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this study is for you.
Uninvited - (by Lysa TerKeurst) Led by Lisa Railey and Janette Higgins
Lysa will help you and your group to enter a place of healing and new perspective, as well as a time for you to go to new places with Jesus and experience him like never before. Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.

Revelation: - Led by Julie McCoy
Revelation 1: 3 says "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it because the time is near."
What comes to your mind when you think about the book of Revelation? Fear? Judgment? Confusion? Did you know it is a book of HOPE?
Join us for an 18 week in-depth study of Revelation as we explore these words of prophecy and how we can draw hope from them.

God's Word Works: Bible study from the Book of Philippians - Led by Val Adams
One of the most searched for things in all of life is happiness. A google search under “how to be happy” turned up 301,000,000 results. Wow, happiness is very popular! In fact, I don’t think it is an overstatement to say that everyone dreams of being happy. Many believe happiness lies in relationships, material wealth or fame or some other measure of success. But what does it truly mean to “be happy”. Is it possible in our materialistic, self-absorbed world to find lasting happiness? The truth is, happiness is a feeling and feelings come and go, so is it possible that happiness is NOT what we seek at all? Journey with us through the book of Philippians and discover what it means to find what you have really been searching for!
Breathe (by the Priscilla Shirer) - Led by JoAnn Cudworth
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. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that would transform the Israelites' mindset. He didn't just want them legally free; He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Bible Studies and Small Groups (more details on classes coming soon)
Search for Significance - Led by Karen Turley
Learn how to be free to enjoy Christ's love while no longer basing your self worth on your accomplishments or the opinions of others. The Search for Significance shows readers how four false beliefs regarding performance, approval, blame, and shame, have kept you from the joy of abundant life in Christ.
A Woman Who Doesn't Quit - (by Nicki Koziarz) Led by Marsha Ervin
Many people believe that doing great things for God is going to be a big moment. We need to be inspired by someone who lived out something crazy or unexpected for God with no lights, cameras or academy awards.
Perseverance is one of the greatest skills but also the hardest lessons we will learn in our lifetime. We are living in a day where we are encouraged to do life based on how we feel. But the problem is most days we don’t feel like doing much of anything hard.
Then there is Ruth. She is much more than a Bible story and through her life we uncover five life-giving habits that help us to persevere when things get hard, complicated, and messy. But these habits do more than just motivate, they help us to fight when resistance arises. They teach us to pursue discipline and the desire to determine our daily direction. These habits show how success is not achieved by pursuing temporary desires. The direction of our lives needs to be far less about to-do lists and accomplishments. And instead focus on becoming the people God can count on.
