Anxious: Fighting Anxiety with the Word of God 
By: Scarlet Hiltibidal

January 26 - March 16    Facilitator: Mary Brandlen

There’s plenty to worry about, and the world is full of faulty solutions for our anxieties.
But true peace comes when we learn to hold God’s Word up to what worries us. There, we learn we can’t fix ourselves; we can’t protect ourselves. Instead, the Bible tells us we can rest, knowing that Jesus walked into the broken, sad, scary places to rescue us and love us. He is the One who fixes. His is the only protection that matters.
Join Scarlet Hiltibidal in this 8-session study to learn how we can practically take hold of the perfect peace that is only available through God as we dive deeply into His Word, embrace the practice of prayer, and live authentically in the support of our communities of faith.

Living the Gospel
Written and Facilitated by Edna Blake 
January 26-March 30, 2023

What does it mean to “live the Gospel?” We hear this term in our Christinan circles, yet in everyday life it eludes us. Join Edna in a study of living as people of faith in a fallen world. We will have 10 weeks of learning what the gospel is, what it is not, and how we can share the gospel with others.
