THE CALL (9/13-11/15)
6:45–8:30 pm, Room 122
Men are invited to study Exodus, using the book; Exodus – Learning to Trust God. Trust sounds simple, right? You know it is often very, very difficult to trust God with the things that matter most to you – money, career, marriage, health. As you study the book of Exodus, you’ll see that Israel faced similar struggles to trust God completely. In this story of hardship and hope, you’ll discover along with Israel that God – and God alone – is worthy of our trust. No registration is required.

Knowing God through the Psalms
A Study in Psalms
There is no better place in scripture to experience hope in the midst of the often confusing realities of life than in the Psalms. The psalmists come to God and tell him their story and what they find is that he is the Supreme Listener. In the Psalms, the psalmists are continually telling us who God is and what God has done so that we will know that he is a God who can be trusted with every aspect of our lives. Join us as we are instructed and encouraged by the Bible’s hymnbook.
Women and men will meet separately in small groups before gathering for a group lecture, where Kay, Mark, and Matt will alternate teaching.
Teachers: Kay Gabrysch, Matt Fray, Mark Fulmer
