“The Pursuit of God” by A.W. Tozer
Led by Judy Hicks at the home of Julie Taylor
As Christians, we are meant to focus on, to thirst after and to pursue God’s presence with all our might. To pursue God is to know Him, and in our knowing be drawn in. In his book, Tozer urges us to replace low thoughts of God with lofty ones, to quiet our lives so we can know God’s presence. He reminds us that life apart from God is really no life at all. Join us as we study this timeless classic together and draw nearer to Him.
Monday Night • 6:30 pm-8 pm • Begins Jan. 21
“Chase” by Jennie Allen • Led by Kim Reese and Ann Williams
In the Café of the Community Building
We’re all chasing after something, something that we think will make us happy—comfort, success, a bigger house, or someone’s approval. But if we are all honest, it feels like trying to catch the wind. Join us for an 8-week study on David: a man after God’s own heart… As David’s life weaves throughout the pages of Scripture, we see he was a man who spent his life chasing after God. Chase explores the
events that defined David’s life and the Psalms that flowed out of those experiences. Through David’s example we’ll discover what God really wants from us and learn that He is the only thing we can chase that won’t leave us feeling more empty.
Childcare is available for our Tuesday studies by contacting Cindy Barksdale the Thursday prior to class—email@example.com.

"The Storm Inside" by Sheila Walsh • Led by Pam Arnold and Kristi Booth
Room C-23 • 10 am - 12 pm
We all face spiritual storms. Life is filled with them. No one is exempt. The storms that rage inside our soul have the potential to leave us broken, bothered, and even devastated. Sheila Walsh examines our heartbreak, disappointments, fears, and our insecurities as we recognize the ability for these emotions to become both overwhelming and debilitating. Walsh biblically guides us through the storms we face and helps us accept and learn that we may become bold and strong by accepting God’s grace. Please join us as we lay our burdens down and pray with expectant hearts that we will see Him more clearly.
1 Peter • Led by Alison Robinson and Shannon Young • Room C-21 • 10 am - 12 pm
In the past while much of the culture has lacked a personal relationship with Christ, the values represented in Christianity were generally accepted and promoted by main-stream culture. Yet, today we are facing a monumental culture shift as we transition away from a predominantly Christian culture into a Post-Christian world. Walking with Christ in obedience today is not only counter-cultural, but often deemed morally wrong in the eyes of the world. Now more than ever, believers today have much in common with the audience of Peter’s first letter. In this study we will delve into God’s word to remember our unique identity as the people of God, set apart from the popular culture. Join us as we learn how to live in obedience to our Lord as “sojourners and exiles in a foreign land.”
"Treasuring God in our Traditions" by Noel Piper • Led by Liz Clayton • Room C-22 • 10 am - 12 pm
This study presents the importance of passing along Christ-centered traditions and a Bible-saturated legacy in Christ to future generations. Noël Piper helps her readers recognize how the “everyday” routines of life and the “especially” celebrations of holidays and dates can be practically passed down to future generations. When parents and grandparents seek to pass along the treasure of God to their children and grandchildren, they will develop and deepen their love for him. When family traditions are rooted in the Bible, the next generations will see that the greatest treasure that anyone can have is the treasure of God.
Thursday Morning • 10 am - 12 pm • Begins Jan. 24

Thursday Morning • 10 am - 11:30 pm • Begins Jan. 24
"No Other Gods- The Unrivaled Pursuit of Christ" by Kelly Minter
Led by Beth Cash • Room C-23
Often, idols are obvious--money, power, fame. But subtler idols can
sometimes take the form of loved ones, image, and the busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, you’re missing the unrivaled joy and adventure of Jesus being your heart’s ultimate treasure. Please join us for an 8 -week session as we discover a deeper, more abundant life that Jesus came to give; realizing that He can do what no other god can.
