The Fear Of God - Led by Matt Walton - October 10 - December 19
Romans 5:11 says, "Since then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men." Paul and his ministry partners knew what it meant to fear the Lord. That fear propelled them to new heights in their relationship with Christ and their work for Him. My concern is that we have dismissed the fear of the Lord so that we can embrace a loving and graceful God that we need not fear. But I believe that this moves our picture of God out of balance. We'll study the Fear of the Lord and see how we can grow in a true understanding of what it means to fear Him.
Cultures in Conflict by Ray Vander Laan - Led by Bill Allen & Fred Salley - October 10 - November 7
Do you find it difficult to live the Christian life in our world today? The Apostle Paul was faced with the same dilemma living in a Greco Roman culture that valued money, status, idolatry and pleasure. In this study, you will learn how to live in a way that glorifies God in our secular Western world by walking in Paul's footsteps on his second missionary journey through Greece.
Gods At War by Kyle Idleman - Led by Fred Salley & Heather Walton - November 14 - December 19.
In this study, we will be challenged with the thought that perhaps all sin springs from the same source - IDOLATRY. Kyle argues that there are countless gods (4 of which are love, money, pleasure and power) passionately at war for the throne of our heart. Only by recognizing our misplaced worship and by enthroning Jesus can we experience true freedom and life. Book/participant's guide is optional.
