Adult Discipleship Summer 2018
Grace (More than we Deserve – Greater than we Imagine) by Max Lucado: Begins May 30 –July 11 | 5:30 p.m. Meeting Room | Led by Betty Hochstetler | Cost $20
Join our women’s Wednesday night bible study and learn more about Grace. We talk as though we understand the term. Lucado says, we’ve settled for a wimpy grace, a goldfish grace that sits in a bowl on the shelf and never causes trouble or demands a response. But there is more to grace than we ever imagined. Come and talk about how to not only receive grace but also to be changed by grace; shaped by grace; strengthened by grace; softened by grace; snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace.
Monday Women’s Bible Study (The Quest by Beth Moore): Begins June 4 – July 9 | 10-11:30 Meeting Room | Led by Bonnie Daniel| Cost $20
Every Quest begins with a question mark. The crooked punctuation mark at the end of a sentence speaks of curiosity, interest, and perhaps doubt. A question is an invitation to vulnerability, to intimacy. The Bible does not shy away from such an invite. Over and over we see the people of God asking questions of their Creator. We also see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation.
Book Chat June 28 | Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Parlor |Led by Nancy Beauvias
Our book for June is “Beneath a Scarlet Sky” by Mark Sullivan.
Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown | July 16, 23 & 30 | 10-11:30 Led by Laura Vaughan| Room 202| Cost $20
“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.
Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other.
Serving From the Heart: Finding Your Gifts and Talents for Service| Begins Sunday, July 8 | 4-5:30 p.m. |Meeting Room | Cost $20
God’s plan for the church calls for each member of the Body of Christ to play a vital role. Sometimes we think that serving God is an obligation, a duty, and that it isn’t meant to be enjoyable. The truth is, though, that God wants us to find joy and fulfillment when we serve. That happens when we serve in a role that matches who God created us to be.
In Serving from the Heart, we will take a 6-week journey of self-discovery as we learn more about how the Body of Christ is intended to function, and what that means to each person.
This study will lead us through assessing our spiritual gifts, talents and abilities, resources, individual style, dreams and experiences…all adding up to an enhanced capacity to serve God and neighbor.
Ephesians: Begins July 10 or 11 (5 weeks) | 6 p.m. Tuesdays or 10 a.m. Wednesdays (Meeting Room) Led By Greg Davis | Cost $20
Dr. Greg Davis will lead us in a wonderful study of the book of Ephesians. Join us on either Tuesday’s at 6 p.m. or Wednesday’s at 10 a.m. in the meeting room as we learn more about Paul’s basic understanding of Christian thought and Christian living.
Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions by Lisa Terkeurst | Begins August 1 | 9-10:30 | Room 200 |Led by Kelly Berne | Cost $20
God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it! Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or we react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how. Filled with gut-honest personal examples and biblical teaching, Unglued will equip you to: • Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships. • Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended. • Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication. • Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff or explode. • Gain a deep sense of calm by learning how to respond to situations out of your control.
