The Storm Inside: “Women of the Bible”, by Sheila Walsh. In this video-based study, Sheila unpacks the stories of a different woman from the Bible each week to show how to overcome the lies of the enemy and live as the daughter of the King, even in the midst of daily storms. The study guide provides light homework to personally dig deeper into the scriptures. Several women from class will take turns leading discussions. Please see Lynn ASAP @Church or contact her at LJAnders@aol.com to sign up and reserve a $10 book (free for those in need).

Adult Wednesday Night Studies

9:00 a.m.

The Prodigal God, by Timothy Keller, presented by the ECC Vitality Team. 9/7-10/19/14

Prodigal by definition means "lavish, recklessly extravagant, having spent everything". What would happen if we began to understand God in terms of His absolute give it all, leave nothing, all out pursuit of people to love into His kingdom? As the Father, the God, who runs to meet us, whether we are wayward or seem to have always been by his side. Don't you want to know this facet of God more personally, to worship him, serve and share him with those around you? This seven-week class is for all adults. A book is available for $5 (free to those in need). Bring your Bible and come join the fun as we grow in Christ-likeness together!

Prayer Group, led by the Prayer Ministry Team

Jesus said, "My house will be a house of prayer"; and again, "Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son". And the Apostle Paul said, "Cast all your cares on Him, because He cares for you".  Here's a great opportunity to join with church brothers and sisters to praise God and pray for the needs of the church, community, world, or personal requests. God loves us, he hears and answers prayer for his glory and the good of His Kingdom. 9/7-12/14/14
