Tuesday Morning Bible Study: (The Book of Romans)

Beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 13, we’ll be studying the book of Romans from 9:30-11am. . We’ll be using the Lifeguide Romans study guide..   Sometimes our worship loses its passion.  Our prayer life becomes stagnant.   We forget why we are serving God.  And slowly, subtly, the world's ways become our ways.  In this study of Romans, we address these problems, showing us how we can break out of old patterns and live in victory as new creatures in Christ.

We’ll be studying John chapters 1-12 using the study guide, "BE Alive" by Warren Wiersbe.  We will be urged to approach the truths found in John with the hearts and minds of worshipers.  He teaches how no other gospel paints such a vivid picture of Jesus as the Son of God.  Through miracles, parables, and relationships, Jesus shows how he is the fulfillment of God's promises of old.
