6 Week BIBLE/BOOK STUDY!! Wednesday's at 6:30 PM! 


The Girl's Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World

By Liz Curtis Higgs

You know Ruth’s story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed. Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time.


With best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs by your side, you’ll tarry in the corners of their ancient houses, listen to their conversations, and consider every word of every verse until you can say, “I totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption story—he has a plan for my life.”

The book is available at and Please contact Kelly Hearn with any questions.



The Grace of Les Miserables

By Matt Rawle

Victor Hugo’s work is a truly epic story. Whether you’ve read the novel, seen the Broadway musical, heard the soundtrack, or seen the screen adaptations, you already know the power of the story. In this 6-week study, author and pastor Matt Rawle dives into six ideals found in the story: grace, justice, poverty, revolution, love, and hope.  Each one is represented by a character in Hugo’s story. 

Please join Pastor Jeff and Bob Lefebvre as we explore “Les Mis,” the Bible, and Matt Rawle’s book during the upcoming season of Lent. We gather at the intersection of the Church, literature, and pop culture and hope to discover a deeper understanding of our faith and how to live it out in the world. Sessions will be offered on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 and Thursdays at 12:15 beginning March 4th/5th. The book is available via Christian Book Distributors (, Amazon ( and Cokesbury (




Gib Hearn, our resident FPU leader, is offering another session this winter.  There are already 2 couples signed up to take the class, which is currently scheduled to meet on Sunday afternoons at 2:00 PM. Please speak with Gib Hearn or Pastor Jeff A.S.A.P. if you are interested or have questions.  Need-based scholarships are available by request.
