What Love Is

September 4th - December 4th, 2018

A study through 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John.


The letters of 1, 2, & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness.

Psalm 23 - The Shepherd With Me

September 5th - October 24th, 2018



Many women know Psalm 23 by heart but haven’t experienced its power in their lives. It is more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life! This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It's more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life. (Study by Jennifer Rothschild)

Fruit That Won't Spoil

September 12th - October 31st, 2018



This book is about men with a passionate desire to impact eternity by allowing God to use them in His desire to build generations of disciple-makers. This book is designed with that in mind; it works extremely well for the crystallizing of thoughts and internalizing concepts about more than 70 “Intangibles” – how-tos for effectively making disciples.
