Winter 2019 Studies
God in Creation: A Study of Genesis 1-11, Mondays 9:00-11:00 a.m.; led by Louise Padfield, begins January 14
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Where did everything come from? In the first 11 chapters, the book of Genesis addresses our deepest questions, declaring to us the transcendent God and shaping our understanding of the Bible as a whole. Join us as we study God in Creation, an 11 week study. We will walk through Genesis 1-11, tracing the themes of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. The group meets at Louise Padfield’s home in Marvin (Firethorne subdivision) and will begin on January 7. Member workbooks will be available at the first meeting.
Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer, Tuesdays 7:00-8:30 p.m.; led by Heather Brown, begins January 8
This women’s group meets each week to savor God’s Word, pray for one another, and support one another as beautiful sisters-in-Christ. This winter the group will study Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer by Max Lucado. Join us as we begin the new year focused on the importance of prayer and how God is with us and strengthening us in our walk with Him.
Raised Together: A Study of Colossians, Wednesdays 9:30-Noon; led by Marty Cook, begins January 30
Paul’s letter to the church at Colossae encourages believers to live out the reality of the doctrine of Christ – He is God, He is supreme, and He is sufficient. Raised Together: A Study of Colossians is a 9 session study by Gloria Furman. Join us as we explore themes of foundational Christian doctrine and develop skills for reading and studying, as we learn more about who Christ is, who you are in Him, and how to grow and mature in your faith. As we journey together, we will apply Christian fundamentals in sharing the Gospel with others and growing in faith together.

Pastor’s Bible Study:
The Gospel According to John, Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 p.m., taught by Rev. Dr. Terry Moore, begins January 9
Matthew, Mark, and Luke are known as the synoptic Gospels. They see things the same way. John is different. John is a theologian who desperately desires for all to believe in Jesus Christ as God’s only begotten Son and Savior of the world. Join Dr. Moore on this 13 week journey through this amazing Gospel of Jesus Christ as proclaimed by John.
