The Gospel of Mark: Pursuing the King
Led by Beth Wade
Drop in and get to know the indescribable Jesus as we journey alongside the disciples while they wrestle with the suffering servant hood/kingship of Jesus unfolding before them. At times this fast-paced Gospel is blunt, but it is always exciting.

No homework. No previous Bible study required. No study materials needed.
12 Weeks starting August 27

Restless: You Were Made for More
Written by Jennie Allen
Led by Lynn Stuart
Do You Feel Like You're Missing Something? With engaging DVD-based teaching, Jennie Allen, founder of IF: Gathering, directs you on how to find the best way to use your spiritual gifts. What if this feeling wasn’t a bad thing? It could be a longing for more of God and a catalyst to living the life that was designed before the foundations of the earth were laid. What would happen if God got bigger than your fear and insecurity, and you spent the rest of your life running after his purpose for you?

No Other Gods: The Unrivaled Pursuit of Christ
Written by Kelly Minter
Led by Kate Onyia and Carol Travis
Our lives revolve around our deepest needs and greatest treasures. Relationships. Family. Financial security. Private hopes and dreams. Most of our desires are healthy. Yet these longings can become passions we not only pursue, but worship. And while idol worship may seem like ancient history, we still face the modern-day equivalent, as natural needs slowly consume our hearts and minds, competing with God's rightful place in our lives.
No Other Gods offers a revealing look at the heart of a woman. Author Kelly Minter explores what happens when good desires become false gods, robbing us of an intimate relationship with our heavenly father. Come discover the freedom in surrender. This study is DVD led with plenty of time for discussion.

45 minutes of homework/5 days a week
9 weeks starting September 3
