How can a Holy God get a sinful human like me into Heaven and not compromise who He is?  Romans tell us just that!  In our study in Romans, we will look at Paul’s unfolding logic and reasoning as to the divinity and holiness of the Christian gospel.  The Good News of Jesus Christ!  When this book is understood…change, transformation, and new life will follow.  Romans is set at just the perfect pace for anyone who is seeking to understand the foundational truths about our Christian Gospel and who want to be awakened by the power and righteousness of our Holy God, and His radical love demonstrated for you and me.

Adam and Eve, the serpent and an apple?  Noah’s Ark and worldwide flood?  The Tower of Babel:  Are these real or imagined? Stories or fact? What difference does it make anyway?  Genesis hold the keys to understanding the origin of sin and evil, the justice of God’s judgment and the mercy of God’s plan for the redemption of mankind and hope for a lost and dying world.   Genesis, Part Two: The Fall, the Flood and the Nations explores the truths found in chapters three through eleven of Genesis and lays a solid foundation for the rest of the story.  This study will meet for the following Wednesday mornings 9:30 – 11:30 to help accommodate women who are attending MOPS:  Sep 18, Oct 16, Nov 13, Dec 4 and Dec 11.

GOD WANTS US TO LIVE LOVED WHEN WE FEEL LEFT OUT, LONELY, AND LESS THAN.

In this study, Lysa TerKeurst digs into God’s Word to help you explore the roots of rejection, the way other relationships get tainted because of a past rejection, and the truth about what it looks like to live loved. With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will take you on a visual journey in the Holy Land to some of the places where people of the Bible such as Hannah, David, and even Jesus lived and walked.

Lysa will help you and your group to enter a place of healing and new perspective, as well as a time for you to go to new places with Jesus and experience him like never before. Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.
