Our next topic: What Good is God? In Search of a Faith That Really Matters?
What good is God in a world where terrorists attack tourist sites in Mumbai, where women and children are sold into sexual slavery, and where six million people in South Africa alone suffer with HIV/AIDS? Does faith really matter when you're struggling with an addiction, or when you get laid off from your job and your home is in foreclosure? Philip Yancey travels the globe in search of an answer to a query posed the world over. His discoveries of redemption, hope, and grace provide evidence that faith really does make a difference, even when belief is severely tested.
Books following our current study:
Advent study The Good and Beautiful Life by James Bryan Smith
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Contact Debbie Holladay.
Wednesdays from 5:15 to 7:30 pm in Room 159

Study of Pilgrim's Progress
John Bunyan was a simple maker and mender of pots and pans who received very little education. In spite of that, he penned the most successful allegory ever written. Embark on a perilous journey with Christian, the lead character, from the City of Destruction to the luminous safe haven of the Celestial City. The journey will encourage you to "set your hope fully on the grace to be given you" amidst the obstacles of life.

Women's Small Groups
What to find a group that provides a place for you to be real, loved and accepted, in the context of group discussion, study of scripture and prayer? In January, we will be gathering in small groups to dig into God's Word and to fellowship with one another. We really hope that you will join us for one of these awesome small group opportunities! As always, you don't have to be a member of Christ Church, you just need to be a woman who wants to grow closer to God. It's going to be a warm time of sharing friendship while we study God's Word together.
Discerning the Voice of God
Beginning the Week of January 21
Sundays at 4:45 pm, Wednesdays at 6 pm or Thursdays at 6:30 pm
If hearing God has seemed challenging, Priscilla Shirer invites you to explore a more intimate relationship with Him, one that can make hearing Him -- His will, His heart, and His voice -- your ongoing experience. Discover how you can listen with greater confidence, clarity, and discernment. Prepare to continually and expectantly hear from Him. It will give us daily opportunities to:
• More deeply understand the Holy Spirit's role in your life
• Differentiate His voice from imposter's voices, even from your own
• Glimpse His guidance in your everyday life
• Grow consistently in obedience, surrender, stillness and humility
Begins Tuesday, January 23, 7-8:30 pm
In seven sessions, Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. Participants in this study will gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of the Bible.
