Forgiving yourself and others is perhaps one of the hardest issues with which one struggles. This 13-week study will show you how to:
- Learn ways to let go of grudges
- Avoid traps such as denial and pretending not to hurt
- Know you have released others
- Help others feel a new sense of freedom
- Apply forgiving and forgetting to your life
- Choose to keep no records of wrong
Discussing, reading, meditating and being down-right honest with oneself and with those around us, this class will focus on what God has been saying to us (individually) and the correct interpretation of what He has said to us. We want to hear God correctly! In addition, we want to be able to love our enemies and bless them.
“The Book of Galatians”
Facilitators: Rev. Matthew Harper & Edna Martin
Meeting Day & Time: Tuesday @ 7:00 pm
ZOOM INVITE: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/2232334651?pwd=N1FCQThiaGV5b0N5cXFNWUVPdzh1UT09
False teachers (Judaizers) were telling Christians that they were still bound by some of the Old Testament requirements. Paul wrote this letter to make it clear that salvation comes through faith in Jesus and not through obeying the law. We will examine the ways some people still perform works thinking they will “earn” their way into Heaven. Just like the Judaizers, they do not understand Salvation and what a blessing it is. We will also have detailed discussions on the Fruit of the Holy Spirit. We will LAUGH, LEARN AND GROW TOGETHER. HALLELUJAH!

Why Study The Book of Revelation?
1. Revelation is the Word of God (the Bible)
2. Jesus told us to watch for signs of things to come
3. Revelation is about Jesus
4. Revelation reveals God’s future plan
5. Revelation will give us a concern for those who reject God and His Son, Jesus
Excerpt from In The Book of Revelation (The Smart Guide to the Bible Series) by Daymond R. Duck and Larry Richards
God has a message for you, and it is in Revelation; but there’s a catch! The catch is you must read and study Revelation in order to receive the message. Revelation is exciting and mysterious and contains prophecy and a lot of symbolism, so we will reference several other books (especially the book of Daniel) and explore aspects of prophecy such as: The Rapture; The Second Coming; The Tribulation Period; The Unholy Trinity; The Millennium; and many other aspects of prophecy. Much symbolism can be found in the Book of Revelation; however, just like other books in the Bible, you don’t need a Ph. D. to understand. As you pray and study and ask God to reveal the meanings of other scripture that you study, He will do so. If you are just beginning to study the Bible, I personally would not recommend that you begin your study with Revelation; however, in considering that God has promised a blessing for all who will read or hear the words of the prophecy of Revelation, and keep the things written in it, all students are welcome to attend.

Do you want to know what the Bible has to say about prayer? If so, this class is designed especially for you. Participants will explore the nature of prayer, examine what the Bible says about prayer, and receive practical suggestions for developing a more meaningful prayer life during times of uncertainties and anxiety.

Worrying about your marriage changes nothing but praying about it can change everything. Today’s challenges and pressures can make a fulfilling marriage seem like an impossible dream. Yet GOD delights in doing the impossible if only we would ask. The author, Stormie Omartian, shares how GOD has strengthened her own marriage since she began to pray for her husband concerning key areas in his life, including his work, finances, health, emotions, priorities, purpose, future, and relationship with GOD.

Join us as we discuss the prophets of the Old Testament. This class will highlight what God has to say through the prophets of the Old Testament. Students will be able to relate the scriptures to our current season of life and apply it to their daily life. It is our prayer that the series, Prophetic Voices, will not only liberate, but empower students to speak truth to power and along with their faith allow God to order their steps to the action of walking in their purpose. Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" -- Isaiah 6:8 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. -- Isaiah 61:1
“Discovering The Habits That Lead To Spiritual Maturity (Class 201)
Facilitators: Audrey Adams & The Membership Team
Meeting Day & Time: TBA
ZOOM INVITE: TBA
The purpose of this class is “that you may become mature Christians and may fulfill GOD’S will for you”. (Colossians 4:12) "We are not meant to remain as children ... but to grow up in every way into Christ" (Ephesians 4:14-15). We will focus, in great detail with supporting scripture, on the Four Basic Habits every Christian needs to develop in order to grow to spiritual maturity:
· Time with GOD’S Word.
· The habit of a daily time with GOD
· The habit of tithing.
· The habit of fellowship.
Whether a new or current member, this class will equip you with the skills you need to begin these habits and explain the tools you need to continue these habits. After all, developing these habits is not automatic, it is a process that takes discipline.
“Life Lesson from Psalms”
Facilitator: Edna Martin
Meeting Day & Time: Friday @ 11:00 am
ZOOM INVITE: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/78665433948?pwd=cDNxdjBObzhwMVpHYzJFVDFUZlk4dz09
Worship is a daunting task. For that reason, God gave us the Psalms. This collection of hymns and petitions was written over a span of centuries, in many different settings, by kings such as David and Solomon and commoners like Asaph, Heman, and the sons of Korah. Some of the psalms are defiant; others are reverent. Some are meant to be sung; others are to be prayed. Some are intensely personal; others are written as if the whole world is to use them. But all have one purpose – to help us express our hearts to God. So don’t just read these psalms but actually pray them along with the saints who composed them. As you do, you will experience their energy, appreciate their honesty, and enjoy their creativity.

In Christian theology, sanctification is a state of separation unto God; all believers enter this state when they accept Christ. Sanctification is the effect of obedience to the Word of God in one’s life. It is the same as growing in the Lord, or spiritual maturity. God started the work of making us like Christ, and He is continuing it. “Sanctification” is not an everyday word. In fact, it’s an idea that has little value in our me-focused, instant-gratification world. Yet regardless of trends, culture, or opinion, being sanctified (i.e. being set apart from the world) remains a vital part of our journey with Christ. But what does this process look like? How do we begin? And is it even possible to live a life pleasing to God? Renowned theologian and teacher Dr. R.C. Sproul believe it’s not only possible, it’s our calling. Pleasing God delivers an in-depth look at God’s plan and pathway for spiritual maturity. Clearing away the confusion of religion and dogma, Dr. Sproul reveals how every believer can experience authentic, lasting life-change through their relationship with God. Built on sound doctrine and rich in Biblical insights, Pleasing God offers a practical guide for anyone longing to live a life that honors their Savior. How can imperfect people hope to please a perfect God? The answer is both simple and challenging: sanctification. “Pleasing God “takes an in-depth look at sanctification and its essential role in the life of every believer. Filled with Biblical insights, this release guides both new and seasoned Christians through God’s path for transforming His people.
