We only need a few more helpers: 10/20 Child or Adult to help Ria Nieboer, 11/24 Child or Adult to help Katie Poynter, and 12/22 an adult and a child to help Jean Heller. The sign-up form is on the Children’s Ministry Counter. Questions…see Katie Poynter. Yes, I want to be a part of the Priscilla Shirer Ladies Sunday School class! Name: _____________________________________  Yes, I would like _______ study guide(s) at $14.00 each Starting Sunday, September 22nd, a new Ladies Sunday School Class will begin! This all new study explores the story around Gideon, about God and His people – His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of, even through, their weakness. Gideon emerged as Israel’s hero, filled with God’s presence and His passion for deliverance. This all-women’s class will encourage us to recognize our weakness as the key that the Lord gives us to unlock the full experience of His strength in our life. If you’ve ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this study is for you. This is a DVD led format with a study guide for the teaching session notes and 5 days worth of personal reflec- tions and questions. One week we will watch the DVD and the next, we will discuss the study guide questions that accompany that DVD session. This study will take 13 weeks to complete, ending on December 15. The cost of the study guide is $14.00. If you have any questions, please see Ria Nieboer. Tear off and place in offering plate Women’s Class -- Gideon (see details in bulletin) -- Sept. 22 - Dec. 15 Many Christians believe they can’t understand the Bible without the interpretation of theologians or pastors. But the Bible was written to ALL people -- including you -- and everyone can understand its message. This two week combined adult class will help you understand how the Bible is organized, how to effectively read the Bible, interpretation and look at various tools for studying the Word of God for your own pleasure and growth. Know what you believe and why! How is Mormonism different from Christianity? What do Jehovah’s Witnesses actually believe about Jesus Christ? What is the difference between Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims? You will learn about the most common world religions and cults and how they compare to Christianity, and discover what to say to a friend, neighbor or co-worker of another faith. All Adults: Sept. 8 & 15 Bible Study Boot Camp (How to study the Bible)  Mixed Adult Class -- Sept. 22 - Oct. 27 Christianity, Cults and Religions
