Teacher: Dan King
Theme: The Gospel of Mark
This careful study of the Gospel of Mark will be guided by Timothy Keller's book King's Cross which the class will read together. At a time when interest in Jesus has never been higher, Dr. Keller takes a deep and thought-provoking look at the life of Christ. The class will discover how Jesus' identity as king and his purpose in dying on the cross have meaning and signficance not only for us as individuals but also on a cosmic scale.

Theme: One Thousand Gifts
Ann Voskamp's study encourages women to live fully - right where they are. One Thousand Gifts is a celebration of grace and a recognition of the power of gratitude. "How do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties? When your days are filled with the mundane, disappointment, or even darkness, how can you break the bondage of self-hatred and fear that has white-knukle control on your life and instead embrace the everyday blessings that will immerse you in Christ's fullness?" Join us and find out!
