Tuesday Morning Equip Her Bible Studies

Tuesdays, January 12 - April 12, 9:00AM - 11:30AM

Moms Uplifting Moms (MUMs)//Facilitator: Laurie Harms
Just for moms! We offer a place to gather with other mothers of young children to learn to seek God's best for yourself and your family. You'll be led through Armor of God, a workbook/DVD study by Priscilla Shirer. Join us as we experience the power of prayer for every stage of our mothering lives.

Cost: $10 (workbook included), Homework: 5 daily lessons every 2 weeks.

Like us on Facebook for activity updates:

Come to the Table//Teacher: Stacey Kuszak
Explore the radical hospitality of Jesus through the gospel of Luke and learn how to live a life of invitation. As hosts of His kingdom, we must learn what it means to steward the gospel with truth and grace -- it starts by making room at the table and in our hearts for people to come as they are. We will gather around the table once a month, after class, for food and fellowship. Weekly homework completion will be key for discussions.

Cost: $10 (notebook included), Homework: 30-60 min/week

Living on the Rock: Finding a Place of Security in an Insecure World//Teacher: Renee Meyer
We know God's promises. We sing songs about our Great God, and how He is ABLE. Yet often our lives are characterized not by confidence in His ability, but by ... Worry. Fear. Insecurity. Control. Anxiety. Anger. Discouragement. Doubt. We know Him, but we don't live out the things we say we believe. Take a journey with us into TRUTH. Our goal is to begin to believe the truths in the Bible so deeply that we LIVE like they are true.

Cost: $10 (workbook provided), Homework: 30-60 min/week

Tim Hawkins: Live

Friday, April 1, 2016, 7:00PM

Tim Hawkins has been meticulously crafting a no-bones, no-bull comedy show that entertains the entire family. His approach to comedy can best be described as one part gifted and two parts twisted. And the three parts set him apart. His stand-up is surgical and honed to perfection, bringing to light the brokenness of human nature while marveling in its hilarity. In his own gracious words, "If you can't laugh at yourself, laugh at other people." His musical dexterity and knack for parody stand on their own, as he deftly rattles off everything from Dylan to Aldean to brilliantly weird original songs.

Regular: $25 advance / $23 advance group rate (10+) / $30 door
