August Workshops

Beginning this Week

Workshops are Bible Center’s short-term evening classes aimed at developing more maturing followers of Jesus Christ by educating followers in various aspects of life. Most are 2-6 weeks long.

These classes are offered on multiple nights of the week to allow more people to attend who may not be able to attend on Wednesday evenings. It will also allow more people to volunteer in children’s and youth ministries on Wednesdays by enabling them to participate in a Workshop on another night of the week, if they choose.

Carolyn McMillen • Aug 24 – Sep 28 • Room 2104 (Women’s Workshop)

Learn to practice joy, defiant joy. Sooner or later, we find ourselves on the battlefield of life and struggle to know how to respond.  But God says, “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2 Chronicles 20:15). On that fateful day, King Jehoshaphat and his army marched forward rejoicing. though we can choose from many weapons, God wants to empower us to fight back with joy. Join Margaret Feinberg for this 6-session Bible study that will help you embrace a life that’s richer and fuller than you’ve ever known before – a life radiant with joy.
