A Study for ECDC Parents

9:15 - 10:30 a.m., Room S101

11 weeks


This study is designed for parents of young children - particularly those who are enrolled in our Early Childhood Development Center - who are trying to raise their families faithfully. This spring, we will be studying the Invitation Bible Study. The Invitation study is led by Dr. Brian Russell, Old Testament professor at Asbury Theological. The Invitation does provide a helpful foundation for how to read, study, and understand scripture. As you are growing, you will then have the resources to disciple your child. Throughout the study we will spend time on how to answer your children's questions and develop a pattern for introducing faith into your family time. Childcare is available.

BETH MOORE BIBLE STUDY

Morning and Evening Sessions

6:30 p.m., Room E225

7 weeks

 

Join Beth Moore, Kay Arthur, and Priscilla Shirer in a women's Bible study recorded live at the Orlando Deeper Still conference. Kay Arthur teaches from basically, the entire book of Hebrews! Hebrews is both an example of God's faithfulness and a challenge to believers to be faithful in difficult times. Priscilla Shirer teaches from Ephesians 3:20-21 on God's abundance. A fundamental basis for every believer is the absolute reality that God can do whatever He chooses to do. God's ability empowers our faithfulness. Beth Moore teaches on the topic of discernment. In these difficult days it is absolutely essential that we learn to trust the Holy Spirit to enable us to determine what is true and what is false. $13 workbook fee.

Paul, as an ambassador of Christ in chains, depicts the church assembly as a holy temple filled with God, Christ, and the Spirit, and then stands firm wearing divine armor ready to withstand all evil forces and to spread the peace of the gospel of Christ to the whole world.
