In My Father's House by Mary Kassian
Women’s Bible Study led by Linda Jenkins
Cost  $9.00

We need to get to know God as Father and relate to Him as a blessed child. However, our relationship with our earthly father positively or negatively impacts how we relate to Father God. Mary Kassian encourages women to clear barriers hindering them from seeing their loving Heavenly Father, basing their relationship with God on the truth of who He is rather than false-hoods about Him.

Apologetics for Everyone   
Led by Boyd White
No Cost

From the First Century believers in Jesus as Lord and Savior have been confronted and challenged about their faith. Today here in the good ‘ol US of A and around the world Christians are still challenged, confronted, and at worst, persecuted for that same faith (Jude 3). With the rise of the New Atheists, believer in the US are also caricatured as emotional fanatics or buffoons. But what if believers could be trained to provide solid evidence for what they believe and good answers to unbelievers’ questions and objections; then, if nothing else, the perception of Christians would slowly change. Christians would be seen as thoughtful people to be taken seriously rather than the former. The gospel would be a real alternative for people to embrace. That’s what we hope to accomplish to a degree in this study. In this study we will examine the why of apologetics, the what of same, and the how of apologetics. In essence we hope to learn how to be good case-makers for Christianity.
