Women of Courage: A-40 Day Devotional
Instructor: Reverend Vivian Slaughter-Mitchell and Deaconess Sylvia Harris
- Description: Whether you’re trying something new, enduring the grind of the everyday, or facing something you never imagined would come your way, life can be overwhelming and sometimes even scary. When that happens, how do you live brave? How do you learn to become a woman of courage? Who do you turn to as examples or mentors?
Women of Courage: A-40 Day Devotional, a warm, honest, and encouraging devotional features women from the Bible who lived courageously despite unusual, difficult, or even frightening circumstances. From women who were called to step into leadership roles, to women who had to rely on God’s daily provision for their needs, these heroes of the Bible show you exactly how to lean into the strength of the Lord when your own isn’t enough.
Join us as we delve into life stories of 40 brave women—some well-known (like Ruth, Elizabeth, Mary, and Martha) and some lesser-known (such as Shiprah, Puah, Lois, and Eunice), learning as they did how specifically we may apply faith-cultivating spiritual disciplines such as:
· study—God’s Word;
· express—worship, fasting, thanksgiving, celebration;
· quiet—meditation, remembrance, solitude;
· simplify—simplicity, generosity, rest; and
· engage—fellowship, confession, submission, service
to navigate through our hardest days with the courage needed to lead, to love, to trust, and to turn to God in every situation.

Corporate Bible Study: The Gospel of John (12-24)
Instructor: Reverend Dr. Keith Harris /Reverend Ronnie Henry
Audience: Adult Corporate
Description: John was the beloved disciple of Jesus, with whom he had a close relationship. He wanted the readers of his Gospel to know Jesus Christ and become intimate with Him as well. To only know Jesus for heaven tomorrow is to miss the joy of heaven on earth in a growing, living relationship with Christ today. John brings both of these concepts together in his book. He says Jesus is the divine Messiah—God dwelling in our midst—who has a kingdom that is not of this world. John records eight miracles to show that Jesus is no ordinary man. He is a man, to be sure, but He is the God-Man, the Word who became flesh (1:14). John conclusively demonstrates that Jesus is the Christ so that by believing in Him you may have eternal life (20:31). But the Gospel of John is also about how to have abundant life (10:10), the fruitful, fulfilling, kingdom life that Jesus offers those who follow Him.
Understand and embrace the principles Jesus taught to His disciples about being a Christ follower in a hostile world as we continue our study of the Gospel of John through the Spring 2023 Session.

Indescribable/Block Party/ Off Stage
Description: As parents, we want our youth to grow to make wise choices,
build stronger relationships, and develop a deeper faith. This is exactly what our Youth Bible Study is
aimed to do!
During our Fall session, youth will see God’s indescribable
creativity. Everything around us gives us a glimpse of our creative God. Jesus
was creative with
the way He taught and the miracles He performed. We reflect
God’s creativity to the world around us, and our creativity is not based on
talent or skill. It is based on the fact
that God created us after the image of Jesus Christ, who is full of creativity!
Additionally, our youth will explore the following topics:
Block Party – Jesus showed us the greatest example of love when He laid down His life for His friends. With His words and actions, He showed friendship to everyone he met. We can reflect Jesus’ love best when we treat one another with friendship.
Offstage – Because we
know that God is good, we can live life with integrity. Who we are in private should match who we are
in public. When we trust in God, we can
be fruitful in whatever we say and do
