As women, we have different gifts, strengths, and weaknesses. No matter where you are in your walk with God, we encourage our sisters in Christ to get connected, study God’s Word, and encourage each other to build up their personal relationship with Christ.

We are currently studying “IF” by Mark Batterson.

It is a powerful little word.  Some people are stuck in “if only,” trudging through lives marked with regret.  But God wants us to live lives marked with possibilities, with the “what if” attitude that looks forward to the future with confidence.  Why?  Because the answer to “IF God is for us, who can be against us?” is “No one.”  God is always on our side. Every day, in every way.

With his trademark enthusiasm and contagious joy, Mark Betterson helps readers overcome feelings of guilt, fear, and doubt, because in Christ there is no condemnation.  Unpacking the promises of Romans 8, he shows readers that they are more than conquerors – right now and forever.  And because of that, the possibilities for their lives are limitless. 

All are welcome!

Exiled as a teenager, Daniel lived the rest of his life in the court of Babylon, becoming Prime Minister of the most powerful empire in the world and one of the most prescient prophets of all time. The Book of Daniel reads like an adventure story. The Fiery Furnace, the Handwriting on the Wall, and the Lions Den are some of the most famous stories in history. Intermixed with these adventures are visions of the future.

Hal Seed unpacks both history and the vision God revealed to Daniel. Read it to prepare for what may be coming soon. Future History will give you:

  • Life principles from the life of Daniel:
  • An understanding of the future;
  • An understanding of history;
  • A new picture of God.

All are welcome!

Are you tired of trying to live for Christ – only to fail time and time again with the same old behavior?  Do you pray for guidance, ask for deliverance, and vow to do better, yet fail to progress?

In Kill the Spider, Carlos Whittaker shares personal material ranging from hilarious, self-deprecating stories to passion-filled wisdom – to show others it’s not enough to try and “stop sinning.”  He teaches that knocking out deep-rooted habits and issues comes by treating the issue, not just the symptoms.

With transparency, humor, and vulnerable stories, Carlos offers a breath of fresh air to any believer looking to finally step into the freedom of Christ.  So, sit down.  Open the book, and grab a shoe, we’re going on a spider hunt!
