Celebration of Discipline
Written by Richard Foster, is the new study recently added to our variety of studies offered Sunday mornings and during the week. Dividing the disciplines into three movements: inward, outward and corporate will help you discover your true path for spiritual growth. Each movement contributes to a balanced spiritual life. The inward discipline offers personal examination and change. The outward discipline prepares us to help make the world a better place and the corporate discipline brings us nearer to one another and to God. Come learn and celebrate God’s desire to be in relationship with you!

This study meets Sundays at 10:45 a.m. with Pastor Jessica Henks as the facilitator and Thursdays (beginning March 8th) at 9:30 a.m. with Angela Audiss as facilitator.

In these six sessions, Gary Thomas shows how God can transform lessons in raising children into opportunities to grow in the image of Christ. Look at parenting from a new perspective; as a method of growing spiritually; designed by God to shape young soul in ways you cannot imagine. 

Wednesdays at Westminster Presbyterian Church at 6:15 p.m. with Pastor Jessica Henks

This five-week study, written by Dallas Willard, will help you better communicate with God during prayer time. Willard says, ‘Our focus is not so much on individual actions and decisions as building our personal relationship with our Creator.’ Participants will gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God’s voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with Him in the work of His Kingdom.

Wednesdays at Westminster Presbyterian Church at 6:15 p.m. with Pastors Kathleen Whitmore and Mark Hutton. 

 Joy-Plan for Salvation
The focus of Journey’s is the divine cycle of creation. With the advent of the Savior by the power of the Holy Spirit, God set in motion the fulfillment of the divine plan of salvation. Luke’s Gospel, several Psalms, and the epistle to the Galatians are used to explore God’s on-going actions in blessing and reconciling the whole creation. This study meets Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. in the Home Builders Room just west of the Sanctuary. Lilly Coultis will serve as the facilitator.

David—A Man After God’s Own Heart
Come study the life and times of David as found in 1 & 2 Samuel. Examine and highlight the lessons that his life can teach us.  Things such as faithfulness to God, obedience in difficult times, waiting on the Lord, honoring others, and seeking repentance for sinning against God. Come share and discuss the truths that come from Bible study and seek to apply them to daily living, all the while upholding one another to walking in discipleship.  The lessons we learn are to become part of our lives as we submit to the Holy Spirit. This study meets Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. in the First Baptist Church Education Bldg., Rm. 108. Rich Menninger will serve as the facilitator.
