Lenten Bible Study
Max Lucado Lenten Series
9:30 AM and 7:15 PM (your choice) February 18 - March 25 (6 weeks)
Led by Bonnie Horner and Ron Verduin
In He Chose the Nails, Max Lucado observes that the last moments leading up to Jesus’ death were not left up to chance. God chose the path; he selected the nails. Click on the image for more information about Max Lucado.
The thrust of this study is to get a new perspective on Lent.
Typically we think of Christmas/Advent as the time when things are given and
Easter/Lent as the time when things are given up. Lucado suggests and
demonstrates that Lent is all about the gift God has chosen to give us - Salvation by
God's grace gifted to us through Christ's death and resurrection.
God has chosen to:
Be one of us
Invite us into his presence
Love us forever
Give us victory
Study guides are available in the church lobby for $5.00

Easter Book Study by Zoom
Forgiveness, by Marjorie J. Thompson
April 4, Easter Sunday - May 9 (6 weeks)
Pastor Judi leads this study featuring Marjorie J. Thompson's book, Forgiveness. From the website: "forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central disciplines for all Christian believers. In six brief chapters, the author prompts discussion with questions such as
Is forgiveness a Christian duty under all circumstances?
Is forgiveness a matter between individuals, or is it meaningful only in the context of communities?
How do we get past emotional barriers to real forgiveness?
Using biblical examples and real-life situation, Thompson illustrates each chapter's theme in an informative and engaging way."
Books are available in the office ($11.00) and include a study guide. If you prefer a "green" option, a Kindle version is availalbe online.
