Entrusted: a Study of 2 Timothy by Beth Moore
Sundays at 5pm in Room 300 (starts September 11)
In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live lives of faithfulness.(Book Cost: $13; books available in class)
Five Conversations with Your Daughter or Son by Vicki Courtney
Wednesdays at 6:15pm in Room 342 (starts September 14)
Using the books 5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter and 5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Son, this study gives moms straight talk about keeping the lines of communication open and honest with their daughters and sons from cradle to college. Vicki helps parents pinpoint and prepare the discussions that need to be ongoing so that their children will know the truth about life before they believe the culture's lies. (Book cost TBD)
Esther by Beth Moore
Thursdays at 9:45am in Room 326 (starts September 15)
The Old Testament story of Esther is a profile in courage and contains many modern parallels for today's overloaded and stressed woman. Esther, while a queen, lived as an outsider in a hostile environment. Women will learn strong lessons of faith, providence, and hope to equip them to live courageously "for such a time as this." (Book cost: $16; books available in class)
