Studying:  Slaying the Giants in your Life by David Jeremiah
Meets in the Outer Office with Diane Moss
Join Contagious Joy as we continue our journey through David Jeremiah’s “Slaying the Giants in Your Life.”  This is a powerful book on defeating the crippling forces – anger, doubts, procrastination, failure, jealousy – that seek to destroy us.  We have found Dr. Jeremiah’s encouraging words give us the courage to face our giants head-on.
Adult Study
Studying:  Invitation by Brian D. Russell  
Meets in the Fellowship Hall with Pastor David Mullins
The Bible is a collection of 66 books, written by more than 40 authors, over the course of 1500 years. And yet, it tells a single, unified story about God’s plan for humanity. Invitation is a study that will provide an overview of this grand story of Scripture, and give us the tools to read and understand it for all it’s worth, and allow it to transform our daily lives. The study will include a workbook with 5 daily readings each week, as well as weekly teaching video and discussion time. This study is designed to engage new readers and veterans alike. Come and join us!
