SUNDAY

Both In-Person & Virtual Class
Room 205 @ 10:15am – 11:15am

Every day the news reinforces what you want to forget—we live in an insecure world. Elijah’s times were no safer. He faced famine, murder, and corruption—with both courage and fear. In this series on Elijah’s life, we will try to discover how to look beyond the insecurity of the world to our sovereign God who reigns forever. Discussion-oriented.

The single topic format insures that no one will be lost or feel behind during the study, and will feel welcome and encouraged to attend at any time. Bibles will be provided and utilized each week. Providing historical context to the scriptural message, and modern application of His word, the Bible will “Come Alive,” and show that God has been working throughout history, and is still working today out of love for His people.

Ever notice that many churches are designed as a cross? Ever wonder where the liturgy came from?  The Christian church over many centuries has built a beautiful mosaic of traditions and meanings behind what makes a church unique from anything else in the secular world.
