Winter Session 2013
Conflict-Free Living – Diane McGarry, Historical Room
Why is life so difficult? Interpersonal conflict is causing serious damage and difficulties in our lives. Its destructive effects are straining marriages, embittering our children and causing discord in our churches. What if things could be different? What if every area of you life could be free from conflict and strife? What if all of your relationships could be filled with love and excitement? Joyce Meyer wants you to know that this is possible. In Conflict-Free Living she weaves together personal experiences with solid instruction from the Bible to demonstrate clearly how you can experience healthy, happy relationships in your own life. Open your eyes to the destructive effects of conflict in your life and the lives of your loved ones, and discover the joy of a peaceful life!
If You Want to Walk on Water You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat- Rev. Rudnick & Kevin Livingston, Upper Room
John Ortberg’s “If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat”. Pastor Alan Rudnick and Kevin Livingston will lead this award-winning study from John Ortberg, teaching participants the skills essential for “water-walking” in faith with God: discerning God’s call, transcending fear, risking faith, managing failure, and trusting God. This study is based on John Ortberg’s book by the same name, however, we will focus on using the discussion guide and video. We encourage folks to buy the participant guide. It is $7 and can be picked up in the church office.
Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, Micah: Calling for Justice, Mercy and Faithfulness – Bob Staulters
This Sunday school class will begin on January 20, 2013. The study is on Old Testament prophets. Some of the most magnificent and challenging messages from God recorded in Scripture came during a fifty-year period of time in the eighth century before Christ. Israel was two nations—the Northern kingdom (called Israel) and the Southern kingdom (called Judah). The times were turbulent, with many problems.
As the eighth-century prophets—Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, and Micah—all unmistakably show, Israel and Judah were in grave danger. They had neglected to their peril both what genuine commitment to God meant and what the covenant community was supposed to be like—a community of neighbors who treated one another with fairness and even mercy.
This study is not merely a history lesson, however. It’s a series of life lessons. The eighth-century prophets offer plenty of truths that make us uncomfortable about our actions in our own history—or should.
