40 Verses to Ignite Your Faith

Taught by Dennis Emmert and Bob Frick

Room 305

40 Verses to Ignite Your Faith, a book by Lorie Polich Short, focuses on 40 of the lesser-known verses of the Bible and the wisdom and encouragement they can give to our faith. The book will provide spiritual nourishment for our souls and provide the tools needed to unpack God’s Word and learn the mysterious ways He grows our faith. The author unearths fresh wisdom, guidance, and encouragement that will help participants seek and experience God in new dynamic ways from trusting God’s timing to not worrying about the future and to holding onto faith when things look dark. The deeper understanding gleaned from these verses will help us meet the challenges that cross our paths. As with their study of Acts, videos are available on RightNow Media. All persons are welcome to join in what should be a stimulating and encouraging study!

The Armor of God

Taught by Ron St. Clair and Larry Truax

Room 410

As we strive to live for Christ and make His salvation known to the world, it seems there are so many forces working against us. The church and our faith are under attack on all fronts. But no matter what the world throws at us each day, we have a choice on how to respond. We can either concede defeat or live in the victory God has promised.

How do we win the battle? How do we overcome the world?

To withstand the attacks, we must depend on God's strength and the resources He has given us. We must put on the armor of God, as commanded in Ephesians 6:10-18. In this study we will be using David Jeremiah's video series, Overcomer, to help us understand how to daily put on each piece of armor and receive God's power to face life's challenges. Jesus said, "I have overcome the world." In His strength and power, so can we!
