New Bible Study

Short Stories of Jesus, a six-week study, will begin on Thursday, January 24, meeting 6:30-8:00 pm in Room 12. This fresh look at the parables of Jesus will help us see the context of his teaching and learn new lessons from the scriptures. Kim Lamb will lead this study. Course cost is $12. Please sign up on the clipboard in the Lobby.

Growing the Leader Inside All of Us:

A church-wide invitation to grow in our discipleship and leadership in connecting with one another (regardless of age, and regardless of current leadership position or lack thereof). We will read four books over the nine-month period between September and May, and we will gather four times to discuss one book each time, discussing the current book assignment, along with its application to the church, to our church, and its connection to the other selections we are reading. Kim Lamb will lead the discussions. Please register for the series in the Lobby and place the four scheduled discussions on your calendars!
  • Selections and dates:
    • October 18, 6:00-8:00 pm A New Day in the City Sokol/Owens (Books cost $13 and will be ordered by the church office based on registration, to be available September 1)
    • January 17, 6:00-8:00 pm Tattoos on the Heart Boyle (19 copies available from the Wake County Libraries)
    • March 28, 6:00-8:00 pm When Spiritual But Not Religious Is Not Enough Daniel (6 copies available from the Wake County Libraries)
    • May 30, 6:00-8:00 pm Selection to be based on previous conversations

    We will provide nursery care for those parents who both would like to participate in the discussion. We hope that our discussion will be robust, and our participants will represent a broad section of the church!
