DID GOD REALLY SAY? | DISCERNING THE SPIRIT’S VOICE

TAUGHT BY MARK JOHNSON

Huntsville Campus, ServeU Room, August 11 – November 17

Wednesdays, 6-7:30 PM
Cost: None

Jesus said our common enemy is “the father of lies” (John 8:44) and that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32). So how important is it to be able to discern the source of the messages we encounter daily? Fifteen times in the New Testament Jesus admonishes that “he who has ears let him hear.” Do you recognize God’s voice when He speaks to you? Can you distinguish His voice from the condemnation of your enemy? Join us as we dig into the Bible to find truth to train us so we can discern the source of thoughts that bombard our minds. This study is based on the book Hearing God by Peter Lord. The book is available for $15 but is not required for the class.

No classes October 6.

ELIJAH

TAUGHT BY SANDY CAMPBELL

Huntsville Campus, Room 135,  August 19 – September 30

Thursdays, 9-11:30 AM
Cost: $17 for the book

Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.

MOM SET FREE

TAUGHT BY BETHANY DONHAM

Huntsville Campus, Room 180, August 19 – September 30 

Thursdays, 9-11:30 AM
Cost: $15 for the book

Moms are under constant pressure to get it right in all areas of life (work, home, family, and faith). We feel the pressure because our children’s futures hinge on our ability to perfectly orchestrate the present. But these impossible standards leave mothers oscillating between worry, fear, anger, and shame. They threaten to steal all the wonder from parenting, life, and our personal relationship with God. Discover how the gospel message can empower moms to parent in the freedom of God’s sovereignty. This 7-session study helps moms breathe deeper, walk lighter, and enjoy their children and the parenting journey more than ever before.

SEVEN SEVENS IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN

TAUGHT/WRITTEN BY SINIKKA SMOTHERS

Huntsville Campus, In ServeU, Ends November 4

Thursdays, 9-11:30 AM
Cost: $5 – $15 for the book

The number seven is significant in science and history as well as in the Bible. When a science educator applies the lens of seven onto the gospel of John, intriguing patterns emerge. Author Sinikka Smothers says, “God has a purposeful design for every area of His creation—including the use of numbers. God loves numbers, especially the number seven. He used mathematical algorithms to construct the matrix we call our universe. Mathematics is God’s language of creation.”

Discover refreshing insights into the life of Christ through this study of seven themes embedded in John’s gospel narrative. The author presents John’s message in seven parts, each one divided into seven sections. Revisit the familiar seven “I AM” statements of Jesus and other sevens that are not widely written about.

YOU ARE THE GIRL FOR THE JOB

TAUGHT BY KIM WAMPLER AND HEATHER COLE

Huntsville Campus, Room 180, August 17 – September 22

Wednesdays, 6-8 PM
Cost: $10 for the Study Guide

It’s tough when your gifts and passions are stuck in holding patterns of insecurity, shame, and comparison. But the truth is, every experience of your life has prepared you to live out your God-given purpose in this exact moment. The world is hurting and our lives are waiting, we don’t have time to stay stuck–we’ve got to make a move.

You Are the Girl for the Job is not an empty catchphrase. It’s the straight-up truth God has proclaimed over your life from the beginning. It’s not a statement about your capacity, but rather about His–and that’s why we can dare to believe it’s true.

With powerful insights and heart-pumping hope, bestselling author Jess Connolly is here to coach you through six steps toward empowered purpose:

#1 Call It Quit (You’ll see, it’s the best place to start)
#2 Find Your People
#3 Use What You’ve Got
#4 Face Your Fear
#5 Catch the Vision
And finally, #6 Make Your Move
You don’t have to hide, hold back, or wait for permission when God calls you forward. Let this book–as well as the study guide and video study (sold separately)–be your jumpstart into confident, purposed living.

MAKING DISCIPLE MAKERS

TAUGHT BY JARED ALLEN

Madison Campus, Lakeside Cafe, Starting August 5

Thursdays, 6:30-7:30 AM
Hot Breakfast included at all meetings ($5)

The Bible gives us a clear mission – “Go and make disciples.” But implied in this commandment of Jesus is the understanding that this should be an ongoing action. In other words, we are not commanded to simply go and make disciples; we are commanded to go and make disciples that make disciples. We are commanded to make disciple makers. In this study, we will learn how to do this and then we will be sent out to accomplish Christ’s mission.

It is for the woman searching for purpose in the middle of her ordinary circumstances. This book is for the mother with toddlers or teenagers, the nurse with patients, the teacher with students.
