  • Life-Changing Prayer

    Sundays @ 10:00am beginning September 8

    God’s throne of grace. It is not a physical location you can visit, but the promises you read about it in the Bible are so immense that they are almost beyond belief. And as Hebrews 4:16 states, you can always “approach God’s throne of grace with confidence,” knowing that you will “receive mercy and find grace” to help you in your time of need. In this six-session video-based Bible study, Pastor Jim Cymbala explores how God promises in his Word to always hear you, answer you, and extend his mercy when you come to him. As you pray with faith, he will provide his perfect peace and “meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory” (Philippians 4:19). You will find that approaching God’s throne of grace will change your life and circumstances like nothing else—and that when you and other believers call on his name, powerful things happen in the world! (Leader: Angie Blount) 

  • Fierce: Women of the Bible Who Changed the World-afternoon session

    Tuesdays @ 2:00pm beginning September 10

    The word fierce is trendy. It is used to describe women who are extreme athletes, high-level executives, or supermodels. Women at the top of their game. But what about the rest of us? Can we be fierce? Absolutely! In fact, women like us have been changing the world for thousands of years—many who received little fanfare yet lived fiercely anyway. In this six-week study we will look at lesser-known female characters in the Bible and the ways they changed the world by living into God’s calling. (Leader: Nancy Rooks)
