Women's Bible Study
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY – Starts March 7
Renewing our minds (Rom. 12:1-2) is an important biblical discipline and command of the Lord that is necessary for us to mature as believers and walk in the fullness of our gifts and callings. But just how do we renew our minds?  Come and learn with us in a Bible study and 21-day “mind renewing” program by Dr. Caroline Leaf, renowned neuroscientist and church leader. After years of studying the brain and learning how God created it to be renewed, she has developed a sound biblical approach that has proven life changing for countless believers. This seven-week course will meet weekly starting Wednesday, March 7th at 10:00 AM at Cathy Pickett’s House (close to the church). Cost is $29 for access to the online program for one year. To register, contact Kathy Pickett (816) 304-0201.
HOLY SPIRIT EMPOWERMENT CLASS – Starts March 11
It’s been exciting as we’ve been learning so much together through the current teaching series on the Holy Sprit! Would you like to dig a little deeper to understand the person of the Holy Spirit? If so, please join us as Pastor Bob leads us in an eight-week Holy Spirit Empowerment Class starting Sunday, March 11th at 4:00 PM. This class is intended to give an in-depth study about Holy Spirit and His chief desire for us to have relationship with Him…to offer to us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend, the power to do everything He asks us to do, and the ever-present ‘God with us’. This class is free and if you’d like to sign-up just write “Empowerment Class” in your I Am Here Card on Sundays or email Pastor Bob—bob@rivercentral.org
