Revelation Decoded

6:00 p.m. - Church, Rooms 5 & 6
Leader - Gil Maza
Confused by the endless speculation about the End Times?  Frustrated at how often predictions about the rapture, the antichrist, and the mark of the Beast have failed decade after decade, even by some of the most popular Bible teachers?  Is it even possible to actually understand the Words of Jesus as revealed to the Apostle John?  The answer is YES.  Join us as we legitimately “decode” Revelation once and for all.

Wednesday Growth Groups

Childcare & Children’s programs provided at church

Men’s Study

“Be Disciples” Series
6:30 p.m. - Church, Rooms 5 & 6
Leader - Mike Openshaw
Webster's definition of a disciple is "a pupil or follower of any teacher or school."  A true disciple is not just a student or a learner, but a follower: one who applies what he has learned.  Thus, a true disciple of Christ will ask, "What would Jesus do?"  As modern-day disciples, our challenge is to transform God's blessings into a visible sign of His presence in our world today.  We are His physical body on earth, and everything we do can reflect His love.  

Women's Study

Twelve More Women of the Bible
6:30 p.m. - Church Sanctuary
Co-Leaders - Andrea Openshaw & Georgia Allen
The women you meet in the Bible, including those you will learn about in this session study, will impress, surprise, and inspire you.  
Some of these women show up in a single paragraph of the Bible and then disappear back into history.
You have only a glimpse of their story, but it still speaks volumes.  In every account, you meet women filled with the presence and power of the living God.  
May God anoint your study of these unique and beautiful women, deepen your faith, and grow your passion to follow Jesus.

Greg & Cindy Marcon Home (even months)

Thursday Growth Groups

Compassion When Life Hurts

10:00 a.m. - Church, Rooms 5 & 6
Leader - Chaplain Richard Phillips
This course will study the theme of God's compassion for those hurting emotionally, spiritually and physically.  Jesus' ministry was primarily marked by His compassion for people in need.
His example provides a foundation for how we can meaningfully tough lives.  Many tips will be given on how to effectively minister to the sick, dying, and grieving.  
Several inspirational stories from Chaplain Richard's ministry as a hospital chaplain will be shared and discussed.  
We will also discover many appropriate scripture texts to use in ministry to the hurting, especially from the book of Psalms.
