Growth Groups for Adults
Sunday Morning Bible and Spiritual Studies
Bible Study #1 -- Philip Yancey's book What's So Amazing About Grace? — “If grace is God’s love for the undeserving, Yancey askes, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy?” This is a compelling read of a book that’s becoming a classic. We hope you will join in the meetings at 9:15 in the Community Room. For more information contact Nancy Kaul at 601-307-5127.
Bible Study #2 -- The Books of the Bible meets in the Fellowship Hall at 9:15am.

Student Resources - Spring 2019, To Be Announced
At Thrivent Student Resources we believe students deserve to go to college without spending the rest of their lives paying for it. That’s why we offer: 1) an advanced suite of tools and resources to help students and the families prepare, plan, and pray for college; 2) educational webinars to help learn how to manage student debt and explore repayment options; 3) a network of financial guides who coach families to match their college dreams with financial means; and 4) access to student loan information and education. We want to help you have a healthier relationship with money, especially at the beginning of college. When you’re more financially secure, you’re free to live a more content, confident, and generous life. RSVP deadline TBA.
