MARRIAGE MATTERS - Charles & Carla Dukes

If you are trying to do everything right so you can have a happy marriage, you will probably be disappointed. Why? Because satisfying marriages are not something we can create by following a list of to-dos. Great marriages happen when we surrender completely to the Holy Spirit so He can supernaturally give us the power to love our spouse above ourselves.

This class tackles some of the most difficult areas of marriage and uncovers the life-giving promises God makes to us when we allow the Spirit to lead us in our marriages:

  • Submission and how it's different than you think

  • Drifting apart - living in two-ness instead of oneness

  • Finding hope even when your marriage isn't all you want it to be

  • Sex and the lie Hollywood wants you to believe

A LIFE BEYOND AMAZING - Book study led by Ms. Lovell Daugherty

We will explore a life of love. Because there's a hole in the human heart we're desperate for the experience of genuine love. Within intimate relationships and in our daily interactions with others, every one of us needs reassurance, affection, and fellowship--all forms of love. Love is oxygen for the soul; we have to have it.

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN - Book study led by Pastor David Gray

The Gospel of John is not a biography; it’s a Theological argument.

It is by believing in Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, that we find life - Real Life, Eternal Life, a whole New Kind of Life!

THE POWER OF FAVOR IN YOUR LIFE - Minister Brenda Murphy

Favor is the necessary force and impactful drive that can and will catapult you where you cannot ordinarily go on your own.  Nehemiah 2

The power of favor on your life encourages you to see how God’s powerful favor is on your life every day.  God wants you to reach new levels of fulfillment, new levels of increase, new levels of victory in your health, wealth, marriage, career, ministry and whatever areas of concerns in your life.

It is important for you to believe and to accept that you have been called out, set apart, and chosen to live a uniquely favored life and lifestyle!

Thou favor may not be fair, make no mistake; is distinctive if to dare to believe God!
