The Daniel Plan is centered on five essentials that will guarantee your success: faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends. Are you ready to revolutionize your health once and for all?



Room 216

Facilitated by Ellen Wadding

God wants us to live loved when we feel left out, lonely, and less than. In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst digs deep into God’s Word to help you explore the roots of rejection, the way other relationships get tainted because of a past rejection, and the truth about what it looks like to live loved. Filled with biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, this study will help you to enter a place of healing and new perspective, as well as a time for you to go to new places with Jesus and experience him like never before. Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken – a love that does not reject or un-invite.


The Gospel In Story

Room 217

Facilitated by Roger Betsworth and Bruce Haddox

The Christian gospel has found powerful expression in the literature of fiction, enabling us to be confronted by its truth in unique and dramatic ways. In this study, we will use Frederick Buechner’s Telling the Truth: The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy and Fairy Tale, as a way of understanding how religious literature works. We will then read and discus several short stories of Flannery O’Connor and a short novel by Graham Green, two of the greatest Christian writers in the 20th Century.
