Wednesday Evening Bible Study with Pastor Rick Ritenour
On Wednesday evenings Pastor Rick is sharing a series titled, “Discernment and Spiritual Comprehension.” The Purpose of this Study is to equip spirit-filled believers with a scripturally grounded understanding of what spiritual discernment and comprehension are, and why they are critical in day-to-day life. God desires that we know His Word, His Voice, and that as spirit believers, we walk daily with true discernment and spiritual comprehension. The scriptures emphasize the importance of walking in the Spirit of Truth and that we have our spiritual senses sharpened that may see beyond the natural and limited. We cannot appreciate the deeper things of God without a prayerful appreciation of the scriptures and the revelation knowledge that the Holy Spirit imparts. The spiritual airways are flooded with messages of truth and error. Satan is always enticing people to indulge self discovery and personal experimentation and indulgence through the messages and means that he seeks to introduce and seed.
If you are not part of another ministry or Bible Study on Wednesday evenings, Pastor Rick encourages you to join his study. There are so many teachings that individuals subject themselves to, and without a solid grasp on the scripture, people can be misled without even recognizing it.
Men's Ministry Wednesday Night Bible Study in Room E104:
Join Kevin as he leads a great group of men who desire to have a closer, deeper relationships with the Lord and to connect with other men to pray together and to serve the Lord together. This study is open to men of ALL ages and from all churches and denominations.
The men are working through a Bible Study based on Dennis Rainey's book titled, "Stepping Up - A Call To Courageous Manhood." Men today are in a battle without bullets or bombs, but a battle all the same. It's a fight for their families and their future. Facing the battles of life demands courage, and courage is the ability to do the hard thing in every circumstance, despite the cost. That's the message of "Stepping Up." In a world where too many men are shrinking back, Stepping Up gives men the vision and the tools to live godly, courageous lives. This study is a call for every man to become courageous leaders in their own lives, marriages, churches, and communities.
