Everyone has a story; come hear Lisa Dorr’s, share yours, and dig into the Word to hear God’s 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. 1 Corinthians 2:2 tells us to proclaim Jesus Christ and Him crucified as 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.

Take a realistic look at the messy, unanswered, mysterious questions of faith through this study and video series. Does God care? Is He fair? Is He even there? Although you may know all the right answers, they don’t always feel right. God’s ways don’t always make sense, but He is trustworthy. Draw close to Him. Trust Him more than your feelings. God will reveal Himself and fill in your missing pieces. Teachers: Pam Fleming, Laurie Houser & Shelley Steck

Whether you’ve grown up hearing Bible stories or you’re exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming. The 66 books may seem disconnected at first glance. In this study, we will be learning how the whole Bible—from Genesis to Revelation connects as one beautiful seamless thread. We will strive to understand the Bible as a whole as we change the way we look at Scripture and connect with people, places, and promises of God’s Word in a fresh way.
