    Pastor Jim Cymbala explores the person and work of the Holy Spirit to bring a fresh sense of God’s power to your church and your life. What happens when the Holy Spirit moves powerfully within a church? Through this study you will learn how: To make room for the Spirit’s action in your life and in your church; God wants to work through your gifts and talents to enable you to do what only he can do; To listen for the voice of the Spirit in prayer and how to apply God’s Word to your life; The Spirit can bring healing to your body, your emotions, and your relationships; and how a life lived in the presence of the Spirit can transform the church and the world. Your church can become a place where people regularly experience God’s presence and his power.  (Leaders:  Angie Blount & Tammy Dougan)

  • making sense of the bible, part II

    Wednesdays @ 6:00pm beginning January 31


    Adam Hamilton proposes a new way of seeing scripture that is more elastic, realistic and human than many conservatives currently see it while more divine and authoritative than many progressives see it. In this way, Making Sense of the Bible  helps readers make sense of the Bible and leads them to a deeper appreciation for it, and a desire to read it and live by its precepts.  (Leader:  Rev. Pete Adrian)

  • The Jesus Way: A Conversation on the Ways That Jesus Is the Way

    Wednesdays @ 6:00pm beginning January 31


    A way of sacrifice. A way of failure. A way on the margins. A way of holiness. In The Jesus Way, Eugene Peterson shows how the ways of those who came before Christ ― Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, and Isaiah ― revealed and prepared the "way of the Lord" that became incarnate and complete in Jesus. Further, Peterson calls into question common “ways” followed by the contemporary American church, showing in stark relief how what we have chosen to focus on ― consumerism,  celebrity, charisma, and so forth ― obliterates what is unique in the Jesus way.  (Leader:  Rev. Dean Libby)
