BOOK OF ISAIAH: Wednesdays from 7:00 – 8:00pm… We will look at the historical background out of which the book comes, the three main divisions of the book, and the very real probability that there are a minimum of two, and perhaps three main writers of the book. We will look at the meaning of Isaiah for the times for which it was written, and also dig into its meaning for today.                                  Leader: Herb Hash    

ESL TEACHER TRAINING: Tuesdays starting October 13 at 6:30pm… No experience is required to volunteer as an ESL teacher. This class will prepare you to teach conversational English one-on-one to members of the community who want help learning English. What would teachers do?   Even more than teaching English, we want to be welcoming and share God’s love.  Relationship building is key.                      Leader: Alice McRae 

WOMEN’S STUDY:  On Mondays at 7:00pm… A gathering of women who desire to study God’s word together, pray for one another and grow together in Christ and as friends will meet to look to Jesus as our model for hospitality. Discover how He lived a life full of interruptions, yet always welcomed people and invited them to follow Him. Learn to replace cultural expectations with biblical hospitality to create a legacy of invitation and reflect Jesus through simple acts of service.
