Most people will live their entire lives attempting to clean up their messes on their own or will hide their messes under a multitude of modern-day fig leaves. Are you weary of hiding and pretending? If so, it’s time to find the courage to come clean about the mess you are. It’s time to lay your heart and soul bare before the Lord and say, “I’m not okay, and I need Your help.” Once you face your messes, God—in His sweet mercy—will help you get real, deal, and truly move on. So say goodbye to that person you’ve been pretending to be and celebrate the person God created you to be: a gloriously imperfect mess who is loved by a perfect and holy God.
Join in a very personal examination of this great story of threat and deliverance as Beth peels back the layers of history and shows how very contemporary and applicable the story of Esther is to our lives today. Just as it was tough being a woman in Esther’s day, it’s tough today. This portion of God’s Word contains treasures to aid us in our hurried, harried, and pressured lives.
Beneath our tangible landscape lurks an invisible spiritual realm where unseen battles rage. It’s real. And it’s dangerous. If you’re prepared to remove the blinders and gaze into this unseen world, Chip Ingram is ready to take you there. Hang on to your seat. It’s going to be a journey inside the very folds of our Bibles, a journey that will teach us about our greatest foe, Satan, also known as Lucifer, Dragon, Serpent, and Son of the Morning Star.Although this lying thief comes to “steal, kill, and destroy,” God details in His Word the battle plan to uncover Satan’s cunning deceptions and to resist his sinister schemes. The cosmic conflict exploding all around us will have eternal implications, for us and those we love. This eight-part series by Chip Ingram will help you prepare to do spiritual battle with the enemy of your soul- and win! You’ll learn how to clothe yourself with God’s “spiritual armor” so you can be confident of your certain victory over the scheming enemy.
Find Your Place in the Story Welcome to Starting Point—a journey of discovering the broad arch of God’s story and where you fit into the narrative. Whether you are new to the Christian faith, simply curious about it, or reexamining it after time away from church, you’ll appreciate the accepting, conversational, small group environment. Come as you are, be who you are, and build enriching connections with fellow travelers as you explore who God is and what Christianity is really about. Starting Point is a natural, enjoyable, and potentially life-changing experience.

What does a Christian Woman look like in today’s world? How do we embrace who God has created us to be in a world where we have lost our spiritual identity? How do women build spiritual muscle to be the Warrior Princess, a woman of virtue and integrity, we are called to be? Join us as we dig into what God’s Word says about being a woman who knows her identity in Christ. One who knows her head is crowned, her spiritual clothing is beyond compare, and her armor is vital. But most of all she knows her Creator designed her for a flawless purpose.
Israel’s feasts are more than just a series of cultural observances. These feasts are appointed by the Lord, and are owned by the Lord. He calls them “my feasts,” the timing and sequence of each designed to reveal to us a special story. Together the feasts form God’s prophetic calendar, outlining the work of history’s most important person – Jesus, the Messiah. This DVD study covers the feasts’ historical background, tradition, modern day Jewish observances, their relevance to the New Testament and to us today, and their prophetic significance as we look to the future. Four of the feasts occur during spring or early summer and were fulfilled by Jesus during the actual celebration of the feasts. The last three occur during the fall within a brief 15-day period. The prophecies of the fall feasts have yet to be fulfilled. Susie Fillenworth, a “completed” Jew, will be joining Phyllis in leading this study. “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of things that were to come, the reality, however, is found in Christ.” (Col. 2:16-17)
Not A Fan by Kyle Idleman
Room 215 – Led by Sue Skytta
You may think you are a Christian—but are you sure? Jesus’ call to follow him is more than an invitation to pray a prayer. It is a summons to lose your life and find new life and ultimate joy in him “What did Jesus really mean when he said, ‘Follow me’?” What if we really listened to Jesus’ words and heard what he is saying? He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He wants Completely Committed Followers. When people truly engage with Jesus’ personal invitation to follow him, everything changes, for he is worthy of all our trust and affections.
Stuck by Jennie Allen, Single Mom’s Bible Study
Room 217 – Led by Tina Bright, Wanda Ringheimer, Dianna Parker
God has a plan for the stuck spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore it, to restore us.
