Walking Toward Eternity

EternityBeginning on Tuesday, September 16, and continuing until November 18, we will be conducting an eight-week course by Jeff Cavins, the first installment of Walking Toward Eternity.

Walking Toward Eternity is an inspiring series designed to help participants live their faith more fully. Through daily prayerful meditation with Scripture (lectio divina), they will be drawn into an intimate and life-changing encounter with Christ. Daring to Walk the Walk, the first series of Walking Toward Eternity, introduces seven key virtues and outlines practical steps for living them out in daily life. This study will take place in the Large Classroom of the Parish Hall, Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. Angie Harness will lead the study.

Charismatic Prayer Group

The Monday night Charismatic Prayer Group will resume their meetings on Monday, September 8th at 7:30 PM in the church. For more information, contact Teresa Kemp at 704-644-2564

Letter to the Ephesians Bible Study

StPaulBeginning on Thursday, September 4, at 7:00 p.m. we will again take up for our Fall topic of study what has been described as a compendium of the essence of Christianity. “Its few pages cover an extraordinary range of theological topics with clarity and precision. The letter summarizes what it means to be a Christian better than any other book of the Bible.”
We will focus on the final chapters in its discussion of marriage and family life.
It does not matter if you were present in the first part of the study. Come and join us!
