Wednesday AM Study
Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit by Christopher J.H. Wright
Led by Lydia Fourman | Hybrid online + Room J/K | Books $11
How should Christians live? Legalistic approaches stress the importance of obeying rules to prove one’s goodness, while others see Christian faith as setting us free from rules and institutionalized religious burden. In Galatians, Paul addressed these two extreme views by showing a better way to live—with the Spirit of God given to us through Christ: “Walk by the Spirit . . . led by the Spirit . . . live by the Spirit . . . keep in step with the Spirit. In Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit: Growing in Christlikeness, pastor and scholar Christopher Wright invites us to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Join this study to feed on the Word of God, grow in Christlikeness, and live a fruitful life.
Thursday AM Study
How Happiness Happens by Max Lucado
Thursdays, October 21-December 2 | 9:30-11:00 AM
Our culture says there is one way to happiness: aspire, acquire, desire, retire. Yet, it’s a path that often fails to deliver. In this video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado looks at several Biblical “one another” statements revealing that the happiest people on earth aren’t those who have the most but those who are willing to give the most away. Find inspiration to initiate your own quiet revolution of joy, to be God’s representative in a cascade of kindness, and to bring a few smiles to one another. Judy Woempner facilitates. Study Guide books are $9. No meeting 11/25.
Friday AM Study
