Soul Station Study

The Freedom of Forgiveness by David Augsburger. We are commanded to forgive everything. Not just the little stuff, the minor irritations and thoughtless behavior of others, but everything. When we forgive, we are set free from bondage. David Augsburger understands this. At our midweek service during the month of July, we will be exploring the topic of forgiveness as we draw inspiration from this book.

Facilitated by Rev. Tammy Hallam.

Disciple Bible Study

The goal of these studies is more than information about the Bible; the goal is transformation in the lives of the participants. Each class reads and discusses assigned Biblical passages, hears from scholars via video, prays together, enjoys fellowship and is challenged to let the experiences form them into active disciples of Christ. Participants covenant together to be faithful in their preparation and attendance. Students are asked to pay for materials; some scholarship help is available.
