Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado

Do you feel weighted down with worry? Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Are irrational fears your constant companion? Could you use some calm? In this video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado explores God’s treatment plan for anxiety found in Philippians 4:4–8. As you follow this prescription – celebrating God’s goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditation on good things – you will experience God’s peace. This is a peace that “transcends all understanding” and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears. While anxiety is a part of life, it doesn’t have to dominate your life. With God as your helper and his promises at your side, you can sleep better tonight and smile more tomorrow. You can talk yourself off the ledge and view bad news through the lens of God’s sovereignty. You can discover a life of calm and develop tools for combating the onslaught of anxiety.

The Journey Class is a gathering of adults with school aged children. We rotate teachers and decide on topics of study relating to our current stage in life, including faith based parenting, caring for ageing parents, relationship building, and christian money management.  If you have children and have been searching for a place to plug in, the Journey class may be the place for you.  Join the Journey class to see what they will be studying next!

Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus with Timothy Mahoney

The credibility of the Bible is under attack. Many experts say there is no archaeological evidence for events like the Exodus. They claim these stories are just myths. But that is about to change. Twelve years in the making, the critically acclaimed film “Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus” presents convincing new evidence that clearly matches the Biblical account! Investigative filmmaker Timothy Mahoney journeyed to Egypt, Israel and throughout the world in search of answers to one very important question: Did the Exodus, as written in the Bible, really happen? What he finds is astounding! A pattern of evidence matching the six major events recorded in the Bible.

Verse by Verse: Room 106, lower level

The Verse by Verse class will be studying the book of 2 Samuel. This Old Testament book depicts David as a true (though imperfect) representative of the ideal theocratic king. We will learn that under David’s rule, the Lord caused the nation of Israel to prosper, and we will see how God helped the Israelites defeat their enemies. We will discover how God established His covenant with David and promised that David’s dynasty would endure forever.
