From the Pit to the Palace – I fell down. Will God help me get back up again? – May 1, 8, 15, 22
There’s a familiar story in the Bible that many call “their favorite.” It’s the story of Joseph. As most know, Joseph got the ‘victory’ at the end of a very painful life experience, which is probably why most people love this story. He won! But what can we learn from the undeserved and unexpected pain that he experienced at the hands of those who he thought loved and respected him. What can we learn from his pain? Come to this 4-week class and find out.

Help! God Has Called Me and I Don't Feel Happy About It! – June 5, 12, 19, 26
At some point or another, each of us experience God reaching out to us. It may be a nudge to perform an act of love for someone else, a call to new life in Christ, a conviction to share the gospel, an inclination to serve in ministry, or instructions for how to make the big life decision. Have you ever ran in the opposite direction from the path God wants to lead you? Or have you ever agreed to be obedient but had a bad attitude about it? In this 4-week class we will study the book of Jonah to better understand why God calls us and why our attitude is an important part of our response. Don't let your feelings get in the way of what God has in store for you.

Jesus is the Miracle and the Miracle Maker, but where is your Faith? – September 4, 11,18, 25
A miracle is defined as an extraordinary, supernatural, elevating event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs. When we think of a miracle we often place ourselves only on the receiving end with no part to play in its manifestation. Jesus performed many Miracles in the scriptures; His birth in fact is a Miracle. However, it took something for the miracle to manifest. In keeping with the scriptures Matthew 9:29 says, “According to your faith [your trust and confidence in My power and My ability….] it will be done to you…” Come learn how your Faith can manifest the Miracles of Jesus. In this 4-week class, we will cover practical and Biblical examples of how Faith precedes the Miracle. Be ready to Renew your mind by Receiving a Revelation that Restores!
