Discipleship Hour Sunday Mornings 9:45-10:45

Adult Education starts up again Sunday, August 4 at 9:50 in the Chapel. Our special August series will include an introduction to the new ACNA Book of Common Prayer, a ministry update from Redeemer Student Ministries, an introduction to the work of our Missions & Outreach Committee, and a special class on how to share your testimony (recommended for everyone, especially those with an interest in the upcoming Saturate effort).

Wednesday Evening Classes

Beginning Wednesday, August 14 – Our Wednesday night class will be reading Nancy Pearcey’s pivotal book, Love Thy Body (available from Amazon, or from the book table for $15 starting next week)In Love Thy Body, best-selling author Nancy Pearcey (“America’s preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual”) goes beyond politically correct talking points to offer a riveting exposé of the dehumanizing secularist ethos that shapes critical moral and socio-political issues of our day. Fearlessly and with compassion, she makes the case that secularism denigrates the body and destroys the basis for human rights. Pearcey sets forth a holistic and humane alternative available to all–one that offers realityoriented solutions that embrace the dignity of the human body and provide a sustainable basis for inalienable human rights.

Ladies Wednesday Night Bible Study Starting September 4 –  We will be reading the book Full: Food, Jesus, and the Battle for Satisfaction. We’d like to invite you to join in our Wednesday night study as together we discover the joy of living free from food fixation, so that we can experience deeper satisfaction in Jesus, gain a renewed sense of purpose, and yes, enjoy good food. This is not a diet book, and it’s not a healthy eating plan. You won’t find recipes or swap-out recommendations. Because, at the core, our problem is not really what we eat. It’s why we seek fullness in something that will never satisfy. We don’t need another diet; we need the sanctification that comes by the power of the Spirit. That’s the only solution that leads to lasting change and creates in us the transformation that pleases God. Registration will be August 4, 11, and 18.
