Life Verse:

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him and he shall direct your paths.

                 Proverbs 3:5-6




Esther 4:14

For if you remain silent as this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish.  And who knows that but that “this you have come to royal position for such a time as?”



Philippians 1:5

Because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.


Ephesians 6:10-12

Be Strong in the Lord and his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
What can can our ministry offer???
Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30

Salt and Light Support Group

facilitated by Karen Alexander

in Gathering Room every month

2nd & 4th Thursday @ 10:00am
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.  Matthew 5:13
Bible Studies for 2023/2024

Goliath Must Fall   Begins March 5, 2023 in Gathering Room in Gathering Room

Louie Giglio
Facilitated by Carolyn Rogers

It’s likely you have a giant in your life. It’s holding you captive, intimidating you with its taunts, and stealing your joy. Adversaries such as fear, anger, addiction, and others can stake claim and, before you know it, gain a foothold in your heart.  How do you live as if these giants are dead and silenced once and for all?  In this six-session video Bible study, Louie Giglio examines the David and Goliath story to show you how by focusing on the size of our God, not the height of your giants. As they go down, you gain freedom to walk in the victory Christ has already won over the enemies that rob you of God’s best for your life.


Uninvited   Begins January 7, 2024 @ 9:30am in Gathering Room

By Lysa Terkeurst
Facilitated by Carolyn Rogers

In this six session video Bible study, Lysa digs deep into God’s Word to help you identify the roots of rejection, overcome the damage that hurts can inflict  on your relationships today, and fully grasp what it looks like to lived loved.

With biblical depth, gut honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will take you on a visual journey in the Holy Land to experience scripture like you never have before. She will take your hand as a trusted friend and help you enter a place of powerful healing and new perspective. This study is a beautiful reminder you need to believe you are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.  With Jesus you are always invited in.

Psalms 23  Begins October 15, 2023 @ 9:30am in Gathering Room

By Jennifer Rothschild
Facilitated by Carolyn Rogers

Many women know Psalm 23 by heart but haven’t experienced its power in their lives. This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It’s more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life.

In this 7-session study by Jennifer Rothschild, gain fresh insight and encouragement from Psalm 23. Explore the depths of God’s compassionate care  while debunking the self-reliance myth.

 Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life.

Boundaries   Begins June 4, 2023 in Gathering Room in Gathering Room

By Henry Cloud
Facilitated by Karen Alexander
Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances — Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions — Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others — Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God’s will from  our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator — Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: – Can I set limits and still be a loving person? –  

What are legitimate boundaries? – What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? – How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? – Aren’t boundaries selfish? – Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.


Forgiving What You Can’t Forget  Begins on  August 13, 2023 @ 9:30am in Gathering Room

By Lysa Terkeurst
Facilitated by Anna Davis

When we‘ve experienced hurt upon hurt or your heart has been completely shattered, offering forgiveness can feel unrealistic. Lisa Terkeurst understands this on a personal level.

We know God commands us to forgive. But how? Why? When? And are there exceptions? Though forgiveness is a major part of a Christian faith, most of us have never been taught much about it and have many unanswered questions.

Lysa has not only discovered Scripture not only provides the truth about forgiveness that our souls desperately need, but offers practical ways to let go of our bound-up resentment and finally heal. This six week Bible study will help 1) life  transformation through forgiveness 2)how to move on when the other person refuses to change or  say they’re sorry 3)the peace that comes through forgiveness 4)Identify  what’s stealing trust & vulnerability so you can believe there is still good ahead  5)Disempower the triggers hijacking your emotions by embracing the two necessary parts of forgiveness.
