Take Courage: A Study of Haggai

Starts next week

This winter we’ll be studying Take Courage: A Study of Haggai by Jennifer Rothschild. In this 9-week study, Jennifer teaches us to learn to walk confidently in our calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest our life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results we may never see in this lifetime.

Small groups will meet at various times throughout the week with both in-person and virtual options available. Just pick a day and time that works for you! Please register by Saturday and purchase your own workbook at your favorite retailer.

Starting this Monday

Perspectives is an awe-inspiring course that has profoundly impacted hundreds of thousands of students during the past 45 years. From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus to the early Church, and St. Augustine to the present, students learn how God moves, how the global Church responds, and the remaining task of world evangelization. Perspectives isn’t a course solely about world missions. It’s a study program rooted in Scripture, clarifying each believer’s remarkable opportunity to co-labor with God in His global purpose.

Cities for the Nations is hosting this class, which helps people understand missions more fully, here at FAC starting January 15. Cost is $250. Contact Tyrone Vinegar if you have questions or are interested in financial assistance.
