Crazy Love - beginning June
9th (10 weeks) - led by Kim Butz
It's crazy, if you think about it.
The God of the universe loves us with a radical, unconditional,
self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to
church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. God is calling you to a
passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to
religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and
don'ts-it's falling in love with God.

weeks) - led by Deanne Boyce
If You Crave Simplicity . . .
and yearn for peace and calm,
this group study is for you. Through Biblical teaching and
practical insights, Chip Ingram goes beyond so-called quick fixes.
This series speaks to men and women who know what they need to do,
want desperately to do it, but find it next to impossible to break
free of the "too many good and important things" that flood their
The thesis is shockingly
simple: spiritual simplicity can only occur when we do less and
love more. The time-tested Biblical principles explored in this
study fly in the face of long checklists designed to decrease
stress and increase productivity. Instead, it will help you
experience a shift from complex to simple, from hurried to
peaceful, from "never enough time" to "time enough for those you
love." Lasting change is within your reach! Take the steps today to
learn how to run the race of life at a different, more meaningful
speed by focusing on what matters most:

Watch Your Mouth -

same name. This compelling resource will help you learn to tame
your tongue. With real-life stories and life-changing insights

teaches about talking and:

your faith when you're doubting.

you honor God with your speech.
* * Develop the ability to praise God and voice
wisdom even in tough circumstances.

The Book of Judges -
beginning June 9th (11 weeks) - led by Erin &
The book of Judges cracks a window
into depths of the human soul. Watch a nation struggle with its
identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arise,
who seem to have the potential to save Israel. But in the end, each
proves to be a broken savior that cannot deliver.
In this series, pastor and author
J.D. Greear wades into the book of Judges to shine a light onto the
muddy waters of human rebellion. The stories and truths within are
not just archaic tales with no relevance for us today. Rather, J.D.
works through each chapter unpacking the truth of God's grace in
the midst of human wickedness, and shows how only the divine can
redeem the fallen.
This group will NOT have an online
group. Instead the group will meet on the LAST Sunday of the month
June-August (June 30, July 28, and August 25) at 5pm at Erin &
Kate's home. This is a WOMEN'S study group
