Ladies’ Discipleship: How Much More by Lisa Harper 
Sundays, August 15 — October 2 | 5:00 PM  |  B402

Maybe your head knows that God is always good, but your heart’s not so sure. Or perhaps while reading Scripture, you’ve wondered if our Creator Redeemer went through a personality change—from strictly enforcing the rules in the Old Testament to loving the outcast in the New.  In this 7-session Bible study, you’ll discover divine love in the often overlooked and misunderstood passages. And you’ll be delighted to find that Jehovah of the Old Testament is the same redemptive and compassionate God we see through Jesus Christ in the New Testament. He has always been and will always be for us!

It invites men deep into their own stories to reveal the true expression of masculinity—God’s intent.
