Elijah: Faith & Fire, Priscilla Shirer   Women

Elijah emerged as the voice of unapologetic truth during a time of national crisis and moral decline. His ministry was marked by tenacious faith and holy fire – the same kind you will need in order to remain steadfast in current culture. Join us for a fresh look at Elijah and the difficult choices of obedience that kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven’s fire to fall.

Sweeter than Chocolate -

Galatians: Solid Truth for Slippery Times, Pam Gillaspie  Women

It's easy to be 'bewitched' by 'another gospel' if you don't know the True Gospel. The Galatians, like many people today, went along with what felt right in the moment rather than standing firm on truth, but the Apostle Paul was unwilling to leave them in their muddled thinking. In the midst of zealous deceivers, Paul reminds his reader then and now that at the heart of the True Gospel is the cross of Jesus Christ, that God has always saved His people by faith, and that in Christ God turns slaves into sons! Growing weary in slippery times? Solid truth is the antidote. In a world of mysticism, syncretism, and other false teaching, it's critical to know truth for yourself so you can discern the influence of 'other gospels' and live in the power and freedom of the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
