The Daniel Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz. Do you ever feel your prayers are anemic? Hollow? This study looks at the life of Daniel and unpacks the prayer he prayed in Daniel 9, a prayer birthed under heartache…grief…desperation. It was a plea for Heaven to move and change his nation. Daniel’s example of praying God’s Word back to Him is what Anne calls “reversed thunder.” Following the pattern of Daniel’s original prayer, we can develop a more meaningful and powerful prayer life, see real change in our own lives and the lives of those for whom we are praying, and our prayers will become more effective as our faith is deepened and our personal relationship with God is strengthened.

Entrusted by Beth Moore. We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. Be encouraged through this study to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.

Join us as we explore the practical side of redemption and an invitation for us to lean upon Jesus for our real help and hope.

The Insanity of Obedience
Warren Pruett
207 C
How do we begin to walk and work with God, especially in dangerous places? Based on the documentary The Insanity of God, this Bible study presents missionary Nik Ripken sharing true stories of people who are suffering for the name of Jesus. This study is an invitation to open your heart, your mind, and your eyes to the realities of walking with Jesus in difficult places. Engage with Scripture and see what it means to be a true follower of Jesus, not just someone who believes certain truths. Discover the answers to key missiological and theological questions about living sacrificially for the cause of Christ. Believers play a significant role in God’s divine purpose. Observe how Christians all over the world are not only surviving but also thriving in the midst of persecution.

Gospel Parenting

14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family by Paul David Tripp. What is your calling as a parent? In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.

Students

Refuge Student Building
Midweek Worship (Doors open 6pm, Worship 6:30-7:30pm, Open Refuge 7:30-8pm) At Swift Creek Students, we are serious about seeing students be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ through the power of the gospel. This transformation occurs as we behold Jesus in Christ-centered worship. Midweek Worship is our weekly time when we gather together to worship Christ through praising him in song and being challenged by His Word. It is an inviting atmosphere for students to be encouraged by building Christ-centered relationships and to know they belong in the family of God. Midweek Worship is open to 6-12th grade students.

Connecting with God, Connecting with Others, Connecting Others with God

Once that connection is established we want to make connections in our homes and with the rest of the church family. A strong church is built by people of strong faith and individual homes where God is worshiped and honored. Read More...
