  6. 6. Starting next Sunday, January 5, a new Ladies Sunday School Class will begin! NEW: “Grace” - DVD study with Max Lucado Grace. We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. We say grace before dinner. But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no? Max Lucado asks a deeper question ... Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace? Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off. Let’s make certain grace gets you. There are 10 participant guides available for $5 and 10 of Max’s bestselling book “Grace” available for $10. These are not required for being part of this 7 session mixed adult class but will add to your growth as you experience “Grace!” Continued: The Gospel of John This mixed adult class continues the Bible exposition of the Gospel of John and will include class discussions led by various Parkside teachers as we seek to grow in our faith and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed in Scripture so that we may have life in His name. Tear off and place in offering plate  Yes, I’m planning on being a part of the Gospel of John class! Name(s): ____________________________ Jesus often showed women acceptance, compassion, and understanding. In each lesson of this insightful study of Luke, we will focus on a conversation between Jesus and a woman, showing how he helped free them of their negative feelings and destructive behaviors---and encouraged them to embrace healthy attitudes and positive actions. You will have your own encounter with Jesus and learn how truly valuable you are to him. A group member will work on a weekly lesson at home from “Luke: Finding Truth and Healing in Jesus' Words to Women” study book by Sue Edwards, and will participate in a group discussion during the class. A lesson/teaching will be also provided by various facilitators/teachers of our church during the class. The study starts on Sunday, January 5 and ends on March 16. Please sign up by 12/22 to secure a study book for the Jan. 5th introduction class. The cost of the study book is $6.00. If you have any questions, please see Ria.
