Armor of God

Taking Up the Armor of God

Wednesdays, August 27 - October 22, 2014
6:00-7:00pm in room 4251
Led by Martha Cobb

What do we need the armor of God for, anyway? How is it that, as Christians, we are expected to withstand incredible pressures and not be defeated? How can we possibly stand up against everything the world has to throw at us and still expect to emerge victorious? The answer lies not in ourselves, but in a divine and unbeatable defense: The Armor of God.


Respectfully Yours

Respectfully Yours & His Needs, Her Needs

Wednesdays, August 27 - November 19, 2014
6:00-7:00pm in room 5102

Respectfully Yours: We know love best motivates a woman. But do we know what best motivates a man? God has designed men and women differently. Discover the secret that empowers a woman to influence the man in her life. Ephesians 5:33 reveals a truth hidden in plain sight for nearly 2000 years, that a husband is to love and a wife is to respect. Respectfully Yours will help you understand what respect looks like—how to apply it and much more!

His Needs, Her Needs: It's no surprise; men and women have radically different priorities! In this updated edition of His Needs, Her Needs, Dr. Harley offers new insights into the intimate emotional needs of husbands and wives to help you "affair-proof" your marriage.

Kinsman

You Have a Kinsman Redeemer

Wednesdays, October 29 - November 19, 2014
6:00-7:30pm in room 5102
Led by Susan Peoples

Don’t Despair! There is Hope! You have a Kinsman Redeemer. If you were a slave, who would buy your freedom? Defend you? In the Old Testament, this buyer-defender known as a “kinsman redeemer” was usually a close relative. If you’re a believer, you already have one—Jesus Christ! Jesus both bought us (redeemer) and advocates (defends) us, offering us an opportunity to rebuild our broken lives. In this study of the life of Ruth, see how Jesus redeems and defends us. Our workbook contains three lessons with about 5 hours of homework per lesson. Help with homework will be given at the first meeting.
