What does it mean to be a woman? The current cultural ideal for womanhood encourages women to be self-centered, independent and above all powerful and in control.  But sadly, this model of womanhood hasn’t delivered the happiness and fulfillment it promised.  God created male and female for a very specific purpose.  His design is very intentional, and He wants women to discover, embrace and delight in the beauty of His design and pass His truth to other women.

Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles by Paul David Tripp

Led by Mitch & Carolyn Evans

Meets Weekly January 17

Wednesday 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Location G201

In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God―grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.

Portraits of the Cross

Led by Arden Taylor

Meets Weekly January 17

Wednesday 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

The most important person in Scripture is Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, and the most important theme about Jesus is His death on the cross for the sins of the world.

Without Jesus, the Bible makes no sense; without His atoning death on the cross, the Bible makes no difference.

No matter where we are in our biblical reading, we are never very far from the Cross. These studies will give us a better understanding of the Cross from eternity to eternity.

The Gospel of John by Melissa Spoelstra

Led by Patricia Cappiello & Lisa Ellsworth

Meets weekly March 21st - May 2nd

Thursdays at 9 AM - 11:30 AM

Location: MTC & Breakout Rooms

Life. It seems to move at a break-neck pace. Days are filled with noise, screens, and appointments. Sometimes worry and fear are constant companions. The chaos can leave you looking for a place to be still, but that resting spot always seems to be an elusive destination. Jesus offers a different kind of life. He offers peace. He is peace.

In this 7-session study on the Gospel of John, Melissa Spoelstra will encourage you to slow down and linger with the living Word. You’ll appreciate the pace of the Savior who never hurried but completed all that the Father called Him to accomplish. As you turn the pages of John’s Gospel, you’ll be challenged to take on the posture of a learner—understanding that the peace Jesus offers is not an ease of circumstances, but a stillness of the soul. As a result, you’ll grow in intimacy with Him and learn to live, serve, and rest in His peace.

The Gospel of Mark by Lisa Harper

Led by LuAnne Wade

Meets weekly January 11

Thursday 10 AM - 12 PM

Location: F106

Immediately. Let’s go. Right away. Now. Get up. Then ... Mark’s narrative moves quickly, and you sense the action in the story of Jesus’ life. It’s teaching presented as the gospel - good news powerfully announced in a world of bad news. This gospel emphasizes not only that Jesus is "the Son of God" (1:1; 15:39) but also that this fact demands a response. The Gospel of Mark highlights Jesus’ unparalleled spiritual power and authority, leading us to consider for ourselves the question, "Who do you say that I am?" (Mark 8:29) The Gospel of Mark: the Jesus we’re aching for partners the compassion of Jesus with the passion of Christ. We see how the heart of God is moved by the heart of humanity and His response to our loud cry for help. We discover the world-changing result of being recipients of His compassion and the reason for His passion, all the way to the cross. Ultimately, Mark intends for the action-packed presentation of who Jesus is to lead us to acknowledge Jesus, find salvation in Him, and follow Him.
