1 PETER: A LIVING HOPE IN CHRIST                                                    BY JEN WILKINS

Begins Wednesdays, March 21

Morning session: 9:30 - 11:30 AM

Evening session: 7:00 - 8:30 PM

We will follow this study by Jen Wilkin to expand our understanding of 1 Peter with a verse-by-verse approach to complete a thorough understanding of the book and life of Peter. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and an eyewitness to the life of Christ, challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers' true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.

Cost: $25.  Childcare is available for the morning session at an additional cost.

Precepts Class
Apr

to May 6

Precepts Class

A study of Obadiah and Joel: "Spare Your People, Lord"

Obadiah and Joel prophesied about the judgment of all the nations in the coming day of the Lord. Edom was singled out by Obadiah because of how they treated Israel. Who would be spared? What would happen to Edom? Or to you? In these last days, as we wait for the Day of the Lord, we should remember that God is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. He calls people to return to Him with their whole heart.  Spare Your people, O Lord.

Men and women are invited to the Precepts study of Obadiah and Joel, beginning Monday, April 30. Meetings are Monday mornings 9 am-Noon, and evening classes 6:30-8:30 pm, in Triple Room CLC 105-107.

Contact Lois at lois98@gmail.com for more information or to register.

Wednesday mornings (9:30 - 11:30 AM) and evenings (7:00 - 8:30 PM)

An original AOC Women's Bible Study written by Meghan Congdon, teaching by the REAL Women's Ministry Teaching Team

We may know about Job's tragedies, the spiritual warfare going on behind the scenes, and may have even heard God's words at the end of the story.  But along the way, Job's friends come to minister to him in his great suffering, and God tells them they get it wrong.  Where do they miss the point, and what can we learn about God and ourselves from their mistakes?

Cost $15. Childcare available for the morning sessions at an additional cost.
