This Fall, EUM Church is hosting several classes and support groups that offer enrichment for your spiritual life. Find out how God can work in your life and how He wants you to respond. The offerings include:

  • 12 Christian Beliefs that Can Drive You Crazy –Not everything believed as a biblical truth is truly biblical. The authors debunk 12 commonly accepted beliefs that cause bondage rather than liberty. They explain how nuggets of truth become cornerstones for error when wrongly understood, and they help build solid scriptural foundations that produce emotional freedom. Two of the topics are 1) It’s selfish to have my needs met, and 2) If I have God, I don’t need people.
  • The Art of Marriage: Getting to the Heart of God's Design – This a Bible study for adults that helps participants blend their personalities and their life's circumstances to create a divinely-inspired work of art--marriage. Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives. Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form--challenging to master but definitely worth the effort. Get ready to make a masterpiece of your marriage through this study.
  • Boundaries – Boundaries is a unique journey of spiritual growth, of challenge to change, of problem solving, of recovery, and of hope. Offering practical help and encouragement to all who seek a healthy, balanced life, Boundaries presents insight and wisdom for those seeking to live within that balance. This is a course for those who are already in healthy situations who would like to have a better sense of when to say “yes” to something and when to say “no”, as well as those who are in great need of setting boundaries. Step into the freedom you’ve been looking for!
  • DivorceCare – This support group is where you can find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce. It is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone. DivorceCare is led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable DivorceCare resources to help you deal with the pain of the past and look forward to rebuilding your life.
  • God is Closer Than You Think by John Ortberg – Intimacy with God can happen right now - a closeness you can feel, a reality you can experience for yourself. Find God where you least expect Him, listen to God's voice, identify which pathway of relationship you're uniquely deigned to travel, align yourself with the flow of the Holy Spirit, draw closer to God even when he seems absent. Connecting with Him isn't the exclusive domain of monks! It's for business people, busy moms, single men & women, high school students...and most important it's for YOU.
  • GriefShare – Walk the journey of grief and be supported on the way. Griefshare is a place where hurting people find healing and hope. It is a network of grief recovery support that will give you direction, purpose and healing.
  • Radical by David Platt – Take a transforming journey in authentic discipleship. As the pastor of a large and wealthy congregation, David Platt began to see a discrepancy between the reality of his Church and the way Jesus said His followers lived. In Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, Platt examines how American Christianity has manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences and challenges readers to rediscover the path. If you are looking for a “feel good” class that allows you to rest in your faith—THIS AIN’T IT! This course will make you squirm with actually living out God’s call on your life.
  • Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation by Ruth Haley Barton – Sacred Rhythms explores the practices that spiritual seekers and growing disciples have used throughout history to grow closer to God. The disciplines of the spiritual life are the basic components of the rhythm of intimacy that feeds the soul, keeping Christians open and available to God's surprising initiative in their lives.
  • Soul Keeping: Caring For the Most Important Part of You by John Ortberg – Rediscover your soul - the best connection to God there is - and find out why it's hurting and why neglecting it has set so many believers back spiritually. Your soul’s resting place is in God and God wants to take you to that home!
  • What Love Is: the Letters of 1, 2, 3 John (Women’s Bible Study) – The letters of 1, 2, & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus.
