New 6-week study begins June 11:  Love to Stay by Adam Hamilton. Falling in love is easy, but staying in love takes courage, hard work, and lots of grace! Through a guidebook, DVD, and discussion we’ll explore how, with God’s help, we can create and sustain healthy, meaningful romantic relationships across the course of a lifetime. All are welcome.

Paths to Positive Living

Adults of all ages and stages who are looking for a way to dig deeper into life and faith around the theme of living faithfully through positive living. The class generally does 5 – 8-week studies on a variety of topics. Current study: Love Wins by Rob Bell. The author addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith — the afterlife — arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever? Bell puts hell on trial and his message is decidedly hopeful — eternal life doesn’t start when we die; it starts right now. Join our discussions, longings, desires, and insights as we explore questions about “who God is and what God is like and how Jesus fits into any of it.”

Next Study begins July 8: It’s a Wonderful Life is far more than just an inspirational movie. God, prayer, angels, and whether we “count” in life are major themes. In his book, Finding God in It’s a Wonderful Life, Greg Asimakoupoulos shows, not only how God’s influence can be seen in every scene, but how God works all around us today and how we can be a part of that work. Join us as we enjoy “Christmas in July!”

Location/Time:  Sundays, 9:40, Bldg. 5-136. Contact Debby Utley (debbyfaeu@gmail.com) for information. All are welcome. No registration needed. Just come!
