This 6-week study for men & women begins Wednesday, October 4th and will be led by Maria Wells. Retrace the life of Moses - from his rescue as a baby to the courts of Pharaoh, his Exodus out of Egypt, to his gazing on the Promised Land. Combining historical insights, archaeological data, and the biblical text, Adam Hamilton explores how this reluctant prophet grew in his relationship with God, and how you can overcome your own hesitancy to act boldly for the Lord.
Books $10. Sign up: Leslie Lunsford
New Women's Study Begins October 8th
Sundays 5-7pm
 What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this 7-session Bible study, Priscilla Shirer redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God's invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city. Books $14.
