Contrary to popular belief, the gift of prophecy is not reserved for a super-spiritual, elite group of believers. If you are a Christian, the Holy spirit lives inside of you and this means that you have access to all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including prophecy. God did not intend for hearing His voice to be super complicated so that only a few could do it. He wants to speak to us! In this group you will learn more about the gift of prophecy and it’s purpose; you will learn the different ways that God speaks and how to hear His voice more personally; and you will become more confident in sharing prophetic words. Group will include DVD teachings and book discussion.
Some Christians effortlessly spend hours in contemplative prayer. Just being around them makes you wish you were that way. Or maybe you are that way, but others are far better at showing God’s love in practical ways or courageously standing up for God’s kingdom. Have you ever wondered: “Why can’t I be like them?”
Maybe there’s not just one way that we can show love to God. In this group we’ll strip away the frustration of a one-size-fits-all spirituality and learn about the many “pathways” God has graciously made for us to love Him. If your devotional times have hit a snag, perhaps it is because you’re trying to follow someone else’s path. Gary Thomas’s book “Sacred Pathways” explodes the barriers that keep Christians locked into rigid methods of worship and praise.

This group will delve into Andy Stanley’s book, Next Generation Leader: Five Essentials for Those Who Will Shape the Future.
This is a line by line Bible study of the book of Genesis. We will plumb the depths of these familiar stories to find the jewels hidden in them. Our study book will be the scriptures themselves and we will ask the Holy Spirit to open up the Word and show us new things we have never seen before. We will be specifically looking for the love and mercy of our unchanging God and “special appearances” by Jesus and the Holy Spirit as we look with new eyes. We will start “In the beginning ” with Genesis 1 and go as far as time and the Holy Spirit allow. the class will run 12 weeks starting Sept 10th and ending Dec 3rd.
This Bible Study will help all participants get closer to Jesus by gaining powerful truths about what He said and who He is. Although sessions will be geared toward all believers, I am hoping that new believers and those who want to get more understanding about the Scriptures will join. You won’t be disappointed. There also will be ample time for questions and discussions. I am so looking forward to this!
Bring your Bible.
