The Most Important Place on Earth: What a Christian Home Looks Like and How to Build One
Thursdays, 10 a.m. – noon; Fireside Room. June 1 – July 27
Building a Christian home requires planning. Urgency. Focus. Purposefulness. Intentionality. But it’s worth it. For this is the place where life makes up its mind. The most important place on earth provides the blueprints. Combining the heart with the how to, author Robert Wolgemuth draws from his experiences as both a father and a son to explain how your home can become a place of happiness and refuge. Hands-on and practical, this book includes “the family vitamins”- important words that every family member needs to say to stay healthy. Wolgemuth provides a fresh perspective on discipline – teaching your children the joy of self-denial in moderation.
The complete plan to build your own Christian home is here along with specific advice and other subjects such as making the kitchen the center of your home and treating each other like valued customers. The results, Wolgemuth says, will produce permanent and positive impressions not only on your children but also on you and your neighbors. A well-constructed Christian home requires work. After all, your home is the most important place on earth.

Multigenerational Study: Soul Armor
Thursdays, 10 a.m. to noon.; C-12. June 1 – August 10
This study is important for women of all ages - whether they are high school students, mothers with young children, soccer moms, empty-nesters, or great grandmothers. The visible body of Christ needs biblical discernment and the ability to answer some of the most troubling and perplexing questions of our day. Among questions addressed in this study are: Does the truth matter anymore? Is being “seeker-sensitive” good or bad? Is God more tolerant than he used to be? Is God responsible for natural disasters? Did “the fall” ruin God’s plan? Who are you to judge?   How do you discern a false teacher? How shall we interpret the spirit world - are ghosts for real? Come learn alongside women who are eager to become vigilant, high-impact Christians who love truth, and who are able to contend for it in a world desperate for answers. Register with Jill Grier (study facilitator) at 516.3323 or kingdommindedmoms@gmail.com by May 28.

 

Women’s Evening Study: What Love Is: The Letters of 1, 2 and 3 John
Thursdays, 7 – 8:30 p.m.; Parlor. Meets June 8 – July 27 (no meeting July 6)
The letters of 1, 2 and 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This seven-session study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus. Facilitated by Ann Ramseyer (634.2270 or ann.ramseyer@gmail.com) and Jane Yourdon (641.5035 or jyourdon1@gmail.com).

 

How We Got the Bible*
Wednesdays, 10 – 11:30 a.m.; C-13/14. Meets June 7 – July 12
Have you ever wondered who wrote the books in your Bible and how they ended up together? Has anyone ever told you that some books were cut out of the Bible or that the stories of Jesus in the Gospels can’t be trusted? Through these six sessions, Dr. Timothy Paul Jones will answer your questions about how we got the Bible. In this six-week DVD study, you’ll learn:
• What makes the Bible unlike any other book
• What it means when we say that the Bible is inspired and inerrant
• What people did to preserve the text of the Bible over the centuries
• How we know that the New Testament is reliable
• The stories behind John Wycliffe and William Tyndale, and the King James Version
• How the Old Testament was written
Award-winning author Dr. Timothy Paul Jones has bachelors and masters degrees in biblical literature and pastoral ministry, as well as a doctorate in educational leadership. He is a professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. This study is a follow-up to Christian History Made Easy, but it is not required to take that study first.
Facilitated by Sandee Francel (634.6717 or sandeef1@sbcglobal.net) and Andi Colley (640.3723 or jcolley1@cox.net)

*also open to any men who would like to join
