We love stories. Jesus told stories, or parables, for that very reason. They are also to help us understand how God wants us to live our lives. Sometimes, however, stories like the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son can be interpreted in more than one way. Even Bible scholars are divided on their meanings. In “Stories Jesus Told” by Greg Carey, we will explore six of Jesus’ parables by learning how to read, interpret, and live them in your daily life. Facilitated by Linda Young and Jeanette Nunnelley.

Disciple Fast Track was developed specifically for busy people who want to fit an in- depth Bible Study into their schedule. Join Tom Badgett and Tom Goodwin for a 12-week study of the Old Testament in the fall, followed by the New Testament starting in January. Participants will read a manageable selection of the Biblical text in preparation for the weekly meetings. One’s commitment to this class exemplifies the discipline and intentionality of a growing and committed Christian – one that carves out time for daily Bible study, Bible reflection, application of scripture, and a covenant commitment with a small group.
Thursdays, September 24 - October 8
6:30-8:00 pm (online using Zoom)

A sacred season is about to unfold for three women whose hearts belong to God. Elizabeth is barren, yet her trust in God remains fertile. Mary is betrothed in marriage, yet she is willing to bear God’s Son. Anna is a widow full of years, yet she waits patiently, prayerfully for the Messiah to appear in the temple courts. Prepare for the Savior to enter your heart, your mind, and your life in a vibrant, new way this season, as Liz Curtis Higgs unwraps each verse with tender care. Angelic encounters, miraculous concepts, unexpected visitors and outburst of praise: experience, the season afresh with Elizabeth, Mary and Anna!
