Mondays 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m.

Time and time again God exhorts His people to remember: His faithfulness, His power, His love. The historical accounts in selected scripture from I and II Kings and II Chronicles will help us remember. These amazing stories of God's dealings with His people will strengthen, encourage, and challenge us to faithfulness in our own walk with the Lord.


In HAPPINESS, Randy Alcorn dispels centuries of misconceptions about happiness and provides indisputable proof that God not only wants us to be happy but also commands it in the pages of His Word.

MARK - Precept Upon Precept

Leader: Marie Strain

Sep 10 - Nov 12
Tuesdays 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Room: Peace 209/216
Course Fee: $22

The most important question you will ever answer is this: Who do you believe Jesus Christ is? With all the opinions floating around – He’s a good man, a teacher, a prophet, the Son of God – how can you know who is right? Mark’s account of Jesus’ life gives you the answer, and it is more action-packed and fast-paced than the other three Gospel records. Rather than rehearsing what people said about Jesus, Mark shows you what Jesus actually did. As you learn to carefully observe Mark's report, you’ll discover that Jesus left no doubt about who He claimed to be. His miracles demonstrated His authority over sickness and infirmity, spiritual darkness, dead religion, threats from nature, and even death itself.
