Special Events


Equipping Forum: Peacemaking in an Age of Political Tribalism

October 19, 6:30pm, Fellowship Hall

Our October forum will feature presentations from Martha Roby and Sandy Willson, followed by Q&A using questions submitted by you. Together we’ll grapple with the reality of toxic tribalism and how it has distorted our attitudes and conduct in terms of how we engage conversations relating to politics and public policy. How can we make progress in being peacemakers in an “Us vs. Them” generation? And how can we make progress in promoting peacemaking, particularly in our discipling and evangelistic relationships?

 Any woman may attend the forum, but only those who have registered and completed the prep work may submit questions for the Q&A; the prep work requires about 1.5 hours.

Bible Study Resources

The Bible is God’s breathed-out Word.

In the Bible, God speaks personally and authoritatively about the salvation he’s accomplished through his Son, the Lord Jesus. And he speaks to us in his Word to change us, to equip us for every good work.

The following videos begin to explain a few basic tools for biblical exposition. They aim to encourage us to keep making progress in hearing God’s Word, doing God’s Word, and retelling God’s Word—all for the glory of Christ Jesus.
