BRANCHES BIBLE STUDIES
Image Bible Study (begins August 26); Tuesdays 9:30 a.m.
Facilitator: Nancy Tinnell

Acts: Seeing God’s Power in Action  (Phyllis LePeau)

Sometimes our lives seem powerless. Not so for the people of the early church.  Jesus transformed their lives, and they changed the world. .By the second chapter of Acts, the same men who abandoned Jesus at Gethsemane have become irrepressible dynamos, preaching with utter conviction—and at great personal risk—‘the mighty acts of God.’  Participants will use Phyllis’ workbook and Nancy’s additional commentary to explore in depth the people, the incidents, and the powerful work of the Holy Spirit as reported by Luke in The Acts of the Apostles.  This study will cover both “semesters.” August 26-December 2; January 6-April 7.

JBUGS - Just Between Us Girls (begins September 9th); 2nd Tuesdays, 9:30 a.m.

Each month moms of young children are invited to gather for cardmaking, scrapbooking, other creative activities, devotions, fun, laughter, and sharing.  Come every month or come when you can.  JBUGS is designed to give you a happy break from all the busyness of being a mom.


Coffeebreak Bible Study (begins August 21st); Thursdays, 9:30 a.m.			         

Coffeebreak 1 with Bonnie Martinell
Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed by Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore, Kay Arthur
Each lesson focuses on the life of David at a different stage of his life: as a young man (two sessions with Priscilla Shirer), as a middle-aged man (two sessions with Beth Moore), and as a man facing the final third of his life (two sessions with Kay Arthur). Bonnie will follow this study with Namesake by Jessica LaGrone.  Every name tells a story. Namesake explores the roots of Biblical characters’ names and the transformational power of God, who not only changed their names but their lives forever.	

Coffeebreak 2 with Amy Archer
Amy’s studies are “pure Bible” this fall.  She will begin with a look at the relationship between Elijah and Elisha in 1 & 2 Kings and explore the ways we receive a spiritual inheritance from various sources. Let the Mantle Fall on Me provides homework sheets for each week’s lesson.  Amy will follow this with a study of the “little Johns.” 1, 2, & 3 John were the beloved disciple’s parting lessons to the young church. He wrote with heartfelt urgency to make sure their understanding of the faith was accurate and complete.
