Women of Wellspring Winter Bible Study
Beginning the week of April 11—Join the Women of Wellspring this spring for “Amos: An invitation to the Good Life” by Jennifer Rothschild. In this 8-session study of the book of Amos, learn how God’s sovereign care prompts us to care for others—displaying true righteousness, not just religious ritual. Uncover the connection between the God life and the good life as you open the invitations to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful.
There will be 3 in-person discussion sessions each week, beginning the week of April 11.
• Tuesdays 7pm-8:30 in the Wellspring Board Room, April 11 – May 30, led by Robin Connelly & Cheryl Kelley;
• Wednesdays 9am-10:30 in Youth Room, April 12 – May 31, led by Cindy Segrist; and
• Thursdays 9am-10:30 in Wellspring Board Room, April 13 – June 1st, led by Renae Winfrey.
Sign-up and purchase book until Sunday, April 16 in the Welcome Center or contact Robin Connelly firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Two New Adult Education Hour Classes Begin April 16 at 9:30am
The Life of Faith in the Book of James: Practical Wisdom for Living Life in Jesus
The New Testament letter from the Apostle James is controversial and often overlooked, even avoided. But it is absolutely packed with practical wisdom for walking with Jesus in the everyday of life. In this 13-week study, we will discover James to be a practical field guide for living out our faith as we engage our world in, with, and for Jesus. Led by Pastor Jeff Block in the Multipurpose Room.
Men‘s Class: Lessons from Lives of Men in the Bible
Calling Wellspring men: We will tackle character studies from men of the Bible. The Bible is very up front regarding its characters: the good, the bad, and the ugly. There is much wisdom to be gleaned from these men. Your teacher/facilitators will be Bob Upton, John Ritland, Mike Kelley and Dan Walter. See you in the Conference Room.
