by Jennie Allen

We’re all chasing after something, something that we think will make us happy – comfort, success, a bigger house, or someone’s approval. We are never satisfied. Chase explores the events that defined David’s life and the Psalms that flowed out of those experiences. Through David’s example, we’ll discover what God really wants from us.

Everyone has a story; hear Lisa Dorr’s, share yours, and dig into the Word to hear God’s story in this unique, interactive Bible study. No matter where you’re at in your journey, your story is important. In Revelation 12:11, we’re told we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. It’s all about Him, and it’s all for Him. Let’s glorify Him together and bless one another as we come together to share our stories and seek God in His Word. Please bring the book, Every Little Detail and your Bible.

Are you confused about God’s view of women? Perhaps our culture has you befuddled about it. As a result, you feel anger at God or life has beaten you down, and you feel unworthy of God’s love. Maybe you simply want clarity on this topic. Join us for refreshing Biblical insights from how Jesus interacted with women and freed them from the cultural traditions of that day. It is an enlightening and transforming study with a Biblical view as sound today as it was 2,000 years ago!

BOOK: How Jesus Broke the Rules to Set You Free by Sharon Jaynes
Price/ISBN: $12/ 9780736959971

By Dr. David J. Miller

The Bible is often read as a collection of stories, poems, commandments, and other writings to gain insight into how we are to live. This approach, however, tends to be self-centered and fragmented, considering pieces and not the whole. This study presents an over-arching framework for the understanding of scripture, focusing on the character of God, as demonstrated in his relationship with Israel. We will carefully study the scripture, starting in Genesis, using Dr. Miller’s book as our resource.

TEACHERS: Deborah Miller & Debbie Schlusser
HOMEWORK: 1- 1 ½ hrs/wk
LEVEL: Beginner
BOOK: Purchase for $17 in class. Kindle version available from Amazon for $9.99.
