New Study:

  • “When Life is Hard” by James McDonald: Monday, March 21st at 7:00pm in the Quads.
  • Why Does Life Have to Be So Hard? If you’re one of God’s children, you’re going through a trial right now… This six=message series is all about providing you with God’s answers to that question. Very real, very practical answers, straight from God’s Word. Is it physical? Is it relational? Is it economic? Is it emotional? Is it circumstantial? God said to expect trials. He also promises to be with you in them – working in you, helping you, and growing you. He wants this trial to change you. He is in your trial right now and He can use it to accomplish great things. The trials that God allows have purpose; they can change YOU! Find God’s purpose in your pain and don’t allow bitterness, unbelief or discouragement to rob you of the treasure God is refining in you. Go for the gold! “But [God] knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come out as gold.” Job 23:10

The hurt and disappointment of life can blot out the beauty of a bold, vivacious woman, but God intends for you to dance the dance of your life in His lavish embrace. Angela Thomas uses dancing to describe living fully in Christ’s love. Dancing is about loving people in perfect step with His love for you and enjoying a passionate life, free of emptiness and fear. Inside the strength of His embrace, you can become the woman you have always wanted to be; the one He intended for you to become!
