Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. March 22 to June 7, 2022

The beatitudes reveal eight qualities that will bring God’s blessing. As we study these qualities and integrate them into our lives, we will receive the blessing Jesus promised. The text for this course is The Beatitudes: Developing Spiritual Character, a course written by Dr. John Stott who was one of the world’s leading and most-loved Bible teachers and preachers.

Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. March 23 to June 8, 2022

This course will teach us what biblical wisdom looks like when the principles from Proverbs are lived out today. We will talk about “The Woman of Proverbs 31,” address questions like, “What is Wisdom and Why Does it Matter?” and discuss “Six Things Wise Women Know.” Join us as we journey through this stimulating study for women.
