“Hanging Out with Paul in Thessalonians and Titus”
Facilitator: Pastor Gary Reiss
Time: Sundays @ 9:00am
Start Date: Feb. 3
Location: PCN Conference Room #205

Come join us as we dig into Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians and his letter to Titus. This 11-week study will give us insights into living the Christian life and God’s call to holy living.

Here’s a little taste of Paul’s message to us: “May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, The Message)

From Titus we learn: “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.” (Titus 2:11-12, NIV)

The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer - Video Series

Facilitator: Teresa Lyday
Time: Thursdays @ 6:30pm
Start Date: Feb. 7
Location: Lyday Home

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.
The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.
Benefits:
• Equips you to get serious, specific, and strategic in your discipline of prayer
• Turn challenges and discouragement into opportunities for prayer
• Grow spiritually as you dig deeper into Scripture and expand your understanding of prayer
• Develop and implement practical, purposeful prayer strategies
• Appropriate for new or inexperienced Bible study students as well as those well-versed in Scriptures.

Run for God 5K Challenge
Facilitators: Madonna Barker, Marvin & Rhonda Stout
Informational Meeting:  Monday, April 1 @ 6:00pm
Training Starts: Monday, April 8 @ 6:00pm

The 5K Challenge is a practical guide to running and a 12-week training plan aimed at running a 5K while maintaining a Christian focus. Although people run for many different reasons, this book is for those who make God the center of their lives—or for those who are seeking a closer relationship with Jesus.

The tone is conversational and accessible, and the workout plans, discussion questions and Bible verses make it both a practical resource and a workbook for individuals and groups, especially beginning runners. From advice about shoes and Christian music for one’s MP3 player, to tips on race etiquette, this book will be useful and inspirational.

"Run For God - The 5K Challenge" is both a Bible study and a training program. The book teaches individuals how to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ while also illustrating the parallels between an endurance sport and the endurance that faith requires.
