The Insanity of Obedience by Nik Ripken
Facilitator: Steve Jernigan. Begins Wednesday, Jan. 4, 6:00-7:00 PM.
Room S201. Cost: $10. 6 sessions.
All Christian disciples have one thing in common: as they carry the Gospel across the ocean and across the street, persecution will become the norm for those who choose to follow Jesus. How believers respond in the face of persecution reveals everything about their level of faith and obedience. The Insanity of Obedience is a bold challenge to global discipleship. Nik Ripken exposes the danger of safe Christianity and calls readers to something greater. This book dares you – and prepares you – to cross the street and the oceans with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Entrusted: A Study of 2 Timothy by Beth Moore
Facilitator: Liz Knight. Begins Wednesday, Jan. 4, 6:00-7:00 PM.
Room S206. Cost: $10. 12 sessions.
We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.
In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.
Faithful, Abundant, True by Moore, Arthur, and Shirer
Facilitator: Karen Herfurth. Begins Wednesday, Jan. 4, 6:00-7:00 PM.
Room S204. 12 sessions.
Complete Title: Faithful, Abundant, True: Three Lives Going Deeper Still.
Join Beth Moore, Kay Aurthur, and Priscilla Shirer in a women's Bible study recorded live at the Orlando Deeper Still conference. Kay Arthur teaches from 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 essential that we learn to trust the Holy Spirit to enable us to determine what is true and what is false.

The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller
Facilitator: Terry Slay. Begins Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 6:00 PM.
Room S202. 6 sessions.
Complete title: The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Word of God.
Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; and that srarting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of 37 years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious. This is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.
