Summer Adult Bible Studies
THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
Life is about choices. How should we live our lives according to God’s will? God’s word provides the answer. The Book of Proverbs contains the greatest collection of wisdom ever recorded written by some of the wisest men who ever lived. Join us in a fresh study of Proverbs that offers relevant insights for making sound choices in every area of life. Proverbs: God’s Guidebook to Wise Living begins Sunday, June 16th at 9:45 a.m. in Fellowship Room [not Fellowship Chapel].
A TIME FOR CONFIDENCE
Are you concerned about the direction our country—in fact, the world—is going? Do you feel a sense of despair about what is happening in our culture and society? Ever wonder if perhaps you need to just be quiet and accept the “new normal?” Do you find yourself questioning where God and His Word is in all of this? If any of this is you, then you are encouraged to attend and participate in a six-week DVD-based Sunday School course in the Fellowship Chapel starting on June 23. The Bible study is called “A Time for Confidence,” by Dr. Stephen Nichols of Ligonier Ministries. Discussions will be facilitated by Bill Harger. This course is designed to show us how we can be confident about the future, using the Bible as our guide. A study guide and book will be provided. This is indeed a time for confidence—come join us to better understand why!

Fishers is a very active church and we are thrilled at the daily activity that goes on here! Lots of activities sometimes equals double booked facilities or staff being unaware of things that are going on. If your group is planning a church related event (on or off campus), if you have regular meetings, rehearsals, or if you would like to use the facilities for something unrelated to a church activity, please submit your request to Amy Benitez at email@example.com.
Coming soon... a request form for calendar requests and facility use items on CCB!
