Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado

Do you feel weighed 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.

Searching Our Heritage: Room 101, lower level

A Brief History and Review of the United Methodist Church’s Book of Discipline.

The Book of Discipline constitutes the law and doctrine of the United Methodist Church. It was originally published in 1784, in the Methodist Episcopal Church, and has been published every four years thereafter following the meeting of the General Conference, which passes legislation that is included in the Book of Discipline. The most recent edition is that of 2016.

The Book of Discipline is much more than a book of rules, it is a way of discipleship, a mirror that reflects our history and helps us understand our heritage.

Advent Study Starting November 25: Under Wraps with Jessica LaGrone, Rob Renfroe, Ed Robb and Andy Nixon

Expectant. Dangerous. Jealous. Faithful. These are the themes used in the Old Testament to describe the layers of God’s character, but then Jesus—God under wraps—took on human flesh and came to live among us to reveal to us what God is really like. Under Wraps video study will show everyone what they can find when they open the true gift of Christmas.

Verse by Verse: Room 106, lower level

In Verse by Verse we will be studying the book of Acts.  We carefully look at each verse and try to glean what the author was telling the audience then and how it applies to our lives now. We cross reference the Old Testament with the New Testament showing God’s never changing message to all.
