SMALL GROUPS FOR WOMEN

Amazing Collection Monday Set 10

Victoria Robinson • Monday 6:30-8:30 pm •  5 Classes • Aug 24-Sep 28 • $15 • E102

From the very beginning of the church, leadership was necessary, and appropriate leaders and their leadership roles had to be established. These four letters were written by Paul to individual men responsible for leadership in three different churches. As you study these books you will become acquainted with the character traits of a leader, the various forms of leadership, the descriptions of ministry for various groups of people within the church, and the warnings against false teachers and practices. Two millennia later, biblical churches still look to these books for direction in the area of church leadership.

Amazing Collection Monday Set 11

Victoria Robinson • Monday 6:30-8:30 pm • 9 Classes  • Sep 28-Nov 23 • $15 • E102

In contrast to many of Paul’s writings, the General Epistles were written during the years of heavy Roman persecution of the Christian population and even greater challenges from false teaching. These challenges are very evident in the content and tone of these last nine books. As we come to the end, Revelation displays Jesus in ultimate victory as God records His last words about the final days and completes the picture of His Son, the Lamb of God and the Lion of Judah. A fitting summation to His Amazing Collection!

Counter Culture (by David Platt)

Jodie Montgomery • Thursday 6:30-8 pm • 6 Classes • Sept 24-Oct 29 • $15 • E209
