Love Does by Bob Goff

(5 sessions) Sunday, July 28, August 4, 11, 18, 25 at 10:45 am

Leader:  Mel Roth | Location:  St. John’s Conference Room

This is a study about God’s love . . . and the most amazing thing about that love is that it’s not just a bunch of rules or things we have to agree with. This isn’t a love you can earn, buy or win. It’s not a prize. It’s something bigger and better. God’s love is different. It changes things. It’s active. It works. It risks. God’s love . . . does! And, it just might be something you discover more about by “doing stuff” too.

Love Does is a five-session video based small group experience in “doing” the love of God.  Each session will explore a different aspect of God’s active love through the teaching and stories of author Bob Goff and Bible study. We will listen, ask, watch and do. Faith comes alive when we DO the love of God!

 

ScriptureDoodle: A Devotional Experience by April Knight

(4 sessions) Thursday, August 1, 8, 15, 22 at 6:30 pm

Leader:  Shannon Omlor | Location:  St. John’s Conference Room

Often, in the busyness of life, Christians forget that God created them to enjoy creativity. With guided instruction and completed examples, we will draw closer to God through our own art. More than a coloring book, ScriptureDoodle is a combination of Bible study, creative expression, and artistic community with artwork shared online at #scripturedoodle. Exploring topics such as being generous, finding rest, and facing grief, ScriptureDoodle gives the heart the creative space it needs. This book stimulates the reader’s imagination and helps integrate God’s Word into everyday life. All ages and levels of artistic talent warmly invited!

 

The Power of Your Words:

How God Can Bless Your Life Through the Words You Speak by Robert Morris

(6 sessions) Tuesday, August 6, 13, 20, 27 and September 3, 10 at 6:30 pm

Leader:  Ros Moatz | Location:  St. John’s Conference Room

“Words satisfy the soul as food satisfies the stomach; the right words on a persons lips bring satisfaction.” Proverbs 18:20

We all know that words carry enormous power – the power to heal or to wound, to encourage or dishearten, to speak truth or to deceive, to praise or to criticize. They can be the key to our success or the reason for our downfall. So, how do we harness that power? How do we learn to use our words to their greatest potential? The power of your words will take you on a journey of discovery into more than just the obvious impact your words can have. Find out how to live more freely; how to connect more meaningfully, how to undo the damage of your words; and, most important, how to pause, ponder and then pray before speaking.
