THE LIFE AND MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST
Starting Sept 3 I 6:30 – 7:30am I Rm A222
Have you ever wanted to learn more about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ? After completing the study, you will have a working knowledge of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ as well as a life that has been changed to look more like Him. We urge men to join us and investigate what Jesus Christ did and taught.
ENGAGED IN PRAYER
September 8 – October 27 | 9:00am | Rm B202
This will be a time when we gather together as the body of Christ to pray in accordance with Matthew 9:37-38 that “the Lord would send out laborers in the His harvest”. In addition, we will be lifting our missionaries up in prayer, specifically praying for one missionary each week. Join us for this special time of prayer!
 
MINISTRY LAB
Tuesdays, Starting Sept 10 | 9:30 – 11:30am | Rm A222
Are you confused about where you fit into the Body of Christ? Do you ever feel that if you just DID SOMETHING for God that your life would really matter? Living and loving who Christ has made you to be in the Kingdom of God is not always easy! You may feel confused, possibly disqualified by a previous life choice or guilty for being inactive, or maybe, you feel tired because you do whatever anyone asks–even when you don’t want to! In desperation, you pray for supernatural guidance but aren’t sure if you’re hearing from God.
You are not alone–not at all. We’ve been there too.
The Women’s Ministry Lab is all about finding and honoring your sacred and individual call to minister. God made you different for the health of His Body and the Lab’s purpose is give you the opportunity to creatively explore and experience the natural outflow of His Spirit through you to those around you.
Sign up and purchase your book on the plaza Aug 25 and Sept 8.
