The Color of Compromise: This Zoom Class will be based upon Jemar Tisby's excellent book, The Color of Compromise, and will access the video series of the same name from RightNow.org in which Jemar explores the historical reality of the American church's complicity in racism and how people of faith today can contribute to racial justice and equality and foster a more equitable and inclusive society—especially in our churches. We will meet via Zoom on Wed. evenings at 7:00 beginning Sept. 2 and ending Nov. 18.

We all know it’s important to study God’s Word, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? Offering a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture, this book will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart. This class will meet via Zoom on Wed. evenings at 8:00, Sept. 9-Nov. 18.

Are your thoughts holding you captive? Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, such as: “I’ll never be good enough, other people have better lives than I do, and God couldn’t really love me.” But Jennie also knows we don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns. God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. Freedom comes when we refuse to be victims to our thoughts and realize we have already been equipped with power from God to fight and win the war for our minds. Based on Philippians, Jennie inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. When we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways. It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless. We will meet via Zoom on Sundays at 7:00pm beginning Sept. 13. It will finish Oct 25.

We live in crazy times and, of course, there are all sorts of opinions out there as to why. We want to blame someone. We want there to be a reason for why the world doesn’t look the way we think it should. We want answers on how to fix it. Still, should we be surprised that hard things are all around us? “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). There is darkness in this world but in Him we may have peace. As followers of Jesus we have Him. Prayer is about relationship. It is about knowing God and trusting God in the midst of our world, not simply asking him to change it. This fall, we would like to create a team of Christians that want to learn how to pray, how to be with God and how to surrender our hearts to what our Father is doing. Ultimately, we want more of God. Beginning in September this team will begin exploring prayer together. Men and women will study together, engage ideas together and pray with one another. We are inviting anyone who wants to be a part to join us to pray for each other, the SW body, and the world around us. We will meet at the building on the first Sunday of each month in the afternoon from 3:30-5:30 to study and pray. The remaining Sundays we will meet before services at 9:00 to simply pray. If you are interested, register online, call us, or come check us out.
