Elijah: Faith and Fire

Date: Mondays
Minister Vivian Slaughter-Mitchell and Lady Sylvia Harris                 

Description: Old Testament heroes are best known for their most celebrated moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the defiant walls of Jericho.

And Elijah—calling down fire on Mount Carmel.

Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory—months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lives unforgettable.

Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.

Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

Understand the value of seasons of growth and testing in your spiritual maturity.
Be encouraged to wait on God’s good work in your heart and mind, even in seasons when you feel like no one sees. 
Learn to trust in the goodness and faithfulness of God and His purposes for your life.

Explore the Bible: Philippians; Colossians; Philemon (Fall 2021) 

Date: Tuesdays
Reverend Dr. Keith Harris /Reverend Ronnie Henry                    
Adult Corporate

Description: Each of these letters encourages us toward a deeper relationship with Christ that nurtures deeper relationships with others. More importantly, they provide God’s perspective on what it means to live out the gospel in a meaningful way every day.

Through Explore the Bible: Philippians; Colossians; Philemon, participants will go deep into the context of God’s Word and be challenged to live it out in their own context.  Through this study, participants will be able to:

- Understand the original intent of God’s Word, digging deep into the historical and cultural context of Scripture to best frame how the text fits within the whole Bible and our lives.
- Grow in our Bible study skills and build a routine through sustainable personal Bible skills and disciplines that last a lifetime.
- Know and live Scripture. God’s word is alive, and this study will equip participants to not just know Scripture, but to live it outwardly to the World around them.

These goals will be accomplished through our Fall 2021 study of Philippians; Colossians; Philemon.

Duration: 13 weeks | September 7 - November 28, 2021

XP3: Middle/High School Students

Date: Tuesdays
Minister Michelle Early        

Description: When one of the disciples of Jesus asked the question, “Which is the greatest commandment in the law?” Jesus responded, ““You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the great and first commandment.  And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Through our Bible Study series for youth and teens, our students will learn just that, love God, love others, and love self.  This is what we call XP3, representing the 3 relationships mentioned in the greatest commandment.

Everything we do is organized through these 3 relationships, and we want students to grow in their faith and experience with these three relationships.  We want students to experience a love for God that will inspire deeper faith, a love for themselves that will lead to wiser choices and a love for others that will build stronger relationships.

Indescribable/Block Party/ Off Stage

Date: Tuesdays
Sis. Michelle Jackson                 

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

Wild at Heart: A Map to Recovery Your Masculine Heart

Date: Monthly, First and Third Saturdays
Reverend Dr. Scot Thomas/ Reverend Ronnie Henry                 

Description: In Wild at Heart, men will take a journey to recover true masculinity -- the soul of a man as God designed him. Men need adventure in their lives--in their work, in their love, and their spiritual lives--and this Bible Study will how God designed them to be dangerous. Sadly, most men today have abandoned these dreams and desires--aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a "nice guy." It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death. Let this not be you. All men are encouraged to join this dynamic study
