Esther - Beth Moore
January 11th - March 29th, 2018
Join Beth in an in-depth and very personal examination of this great story of threat and deliverance. She peels back the layers of history and shows how very contemporary and applicable the story of Esther is to our lives. If you've ever felt inadequate, threatened or pushed into situations that seemed overpowering, this is the study for you. Just as it was tough being a woman in Esther's day, it's tough today. This portion of God's Word contains treasures to aid us in our hurried, harried, and pressured lives.

Fervent - Priscilla Shirer
January 26th - February 23rd, 2018
You have an enemy...and he's dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What's more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn't general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It's specific, personalized, and targeted. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you're on to him and you won't back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you're turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God's Spirit.
Leader: Betty Mutwiri;
Co-Leader: Josephine Nsimire

Elijah House- Healing Shame Seminar
February 7th - March 21st, 2018
February 9th - February 10th, 2018
The Marriage Seminar will be presenting the Love & Respect material. Couples will learn how to resolve conflict, dealing with the negative reactions (the crazy cycle). They will also learn how to motivate each other by meeting each other’s need (the energizing cycle). Even those who feel hopeless in their relationships will gain understanding on how to handle an indifferent or unresponsive partner (the rewarded cycle). Each cycle centers on two concepts: love and respect. These two words surface in social research and the Bible (Ephesians 5:33) as the two key ingredients for a successful marriage.
There are limited registrations and child care available.
Sponsorships are available.
Cost: $20 /couple
