Country Oaks Baptist Church will be doing “Finding I AM -How Jesus Fully Satisfies the Cry of Your Heart” by Lysa Terkeurst. What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.

St. Jude’s in the Mountains
Wendy Clare leads a Precept Bible Studies usually Tuesdays at 9:30am and 6:30pm. Start date TBA. We meet at Mountain Bible Church (630 Maple St.), in modular classroom 3. They are planning on doing Acts, Part 1, probably starting in mid-late September.
From Wendy: One thing is that my studies are open to men as well, so ladies can bring their husbands! I also encourage teens to participate as well (although during the school year, that might be difficult, given the homework). I absolutely LOVE seeing couples, and young people in the study!! I have been offering both the Precept Upon Precept workbook AND the In & Out workbook (which is much less homework, but covers the same material. Not so many cross-references, and no word studies.) Cost varies based on the book cost from Precept Ministries, but the average is $15.
