For those who want to take recovery to the next level, men's and women's step studies meet every Wednesday at 7PM.  Each group works through the steps and principles together using the Celebrate Recovery Participant Guides.

WHOLE IN ONE SINGLES Bible Study

Grace

BEGINNING SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3 at 9:15AM

Grace.

We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and premeal prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means.

But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, "Do you believe in grace?" who could say no?

Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace?

God's grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly.

Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.

Let's make certain grace gets you.

FACILITATOR: GAIL SULLIVAN
ROOM 220
7 WEEKS DVD
COST: $15
CHILDCARE AVAILABLE - MUST REGISTER

Explore the major feasts of Israel and journey with Beth through this 7-session study.

BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE - LIZ CURTIS HIGGS
FACILITATOR: RENEE' BASEL
ROOM 250
5 WEEKS
NO DVD
COST: $15
CHILDCARE AVAILABLE - MUST REGISTER

Women everywhere marvel at those “good girls” in Scripture–Sarah, Mary, Esther–but on most days, that’s not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they’re honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch of glimpse of Jezebel’s take-charge pride or Eve’s disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today’s modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires. So what’s a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved humor writer Liz Curtis Higgs, and by God’s grace, choose a better path.


FORGIVENESS: BREAKING THE POWER OF THE PAST - KAY ARTHUR
FACILITATOR: RAQUEL ROBINSON
ROOM 202
7 WEEKS
NO DVD
COST: $10
CHILDCARE AVAILABLE - MUST REGISTER

As imperfect people living in an imperfect world, we eventually confront in nearly every relationship the need to extend or receive forgiveness. But when the wounds run deep, forgiveness doesn’t come easy.  This eye-opening study deals with the difficult questions of forgiveness, including How can I forgive when the pain is so great? Does forgiving mean I have to forget the past? and What if I choose not to forgive? As you dig into what the Bible says on this vital topic, you’ll encounter the depths of God’s own mercy and discover how choosing forgiveness can free you from a painful past and propel you toward being all that God intends you to be.

Angela transparently shares real-life experiences that help women of all ages and from all walks of life develop a deeper passion for knowing God. After living 14 years as wife and mother of four, Angela's marriage ended.

How important is holiness to you? How much thought, attention, and effort do you devote to the pursuit of holiness? Is it your priority and mission to be holy?

Just as an athlete sets his sight on winning an Olympic gold medal, so we as believers must focus on the pursuit of holiness.
