Living a Godly Lifestyle in an Ungodly World
Led by Dana Sherrard
September 19 - November 14 | 10:00 - 11:00am in Johnson Hall
No class on Tuesday, October 24.
As Christians, most of us struggle with being the people God wants us to be and living out our faith in a way that brings honor and glory to God. This has been true all through time as is evidenced by Paul in his letter to the Romans (chapter 7), yet God never requires anything of us that He hasn’t already equipped us to do. This course is going to examine the situation we find ourselves in, the causes of our struggles and the means of overcoming these struggles so that we can indeed live out our faith in a way that brings honor and glory to God.
Please come—bring a friend and your Bible. An outline of each lesson will be provided.

Of the Book of Psalms it has been written, "Psalms is the hymnal of Israelite worship and the Bible's book of personal devotions. In them we not only find expression of all the emotions of life but also some of the most profound teaching in the entire Bible ... The Psalms get us praying when we don't feel like it, and they train us in prayers that are honest and right."

Women's Bible Study
Led by Leslie Overby and Breck Wheeler
September 7 - November 9 | 9:30am - Noon in Dandridge B
