Choose What's Better: Women's Winter Retreat
With so many options for how to spend our time, energy, and money, we sometimes forget that God’s Word reminds us of what is better. Come away for an overnight adventure February 2-3, 2024 at Pinnacle Retreat Center in Clayton, Georgia, where we’ll dig into those “better” passages with Courtney Veasey, an insightful Bible teacher (who recently earned her PhD in Biblical Interpretation).

The cost is $100 (goes up to $115 on Jan. 8) and includes lodging, three meals, and event amenities. Register early; space is limited.
DiscipleU features in-depth Bible study, small group discussion, and opportunities for inter-generational connections. This group is for women of all ages and is taught by our senior pastor's wife, Dr. Judi Jackson.
Elijah: Faith and Fire
by Priscilla Shirer
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.

Current Study: ISAIAH
January 11 - February 15, 2024
7:00-8:30am in room A-202
Isaiah served as God’s mouthpiece to the nation of Judah but also to the surrounding nations. His message echoes into our lives today as we read his call to rely on the Lord. Using the genres of poetry, narrative, and prophecy, Isaiah communicated clearly that followers of God could trust in Him.
As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote—from his challenging words to the nation of Israel to his prophecies of the Messiah to come—learn to rest in God's promises and grow in trust. Unpacking Isaiah’s words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him you'll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.
