Friends in English (ESL)

This conversational class will help newer Canadians practice their English as they learn about basic elements of Canadian culture and our Christian faith from more experienced Canadian women.  We need new immigrants, “born-and-bred Calgarians” and everyone in between to join this class of friends.  Come with your questions about adjusting to life in Canada.

Facilitators:   Anita Lee, Ann Stevenson, Mandy Trask, and June MacKeith

Women of the Bible/40 Days in the Word

Presenting two unique ways to learn how to be “hearers and doers” of God’s Word!  We will begin by meeting biblical women who heard God and whose lives changed forever.  Twelve Women of the Bible, a DVD-based study authored by Lysa TerKeurst and others, will help us unearth fresh insights for our own lives through women who, just like us, struggled to practice their faith in a world filled with trials.  Mid-way, we will shift and join the entire church in studying 40 Days in the Word. This study of six key principles of the Word of God–its authenticity, reliability, comfort, interpretation, impact and power–will surely encourage spiritual growth.

Facilitators:  Daryl Ginter and Julie Lee

A Woman’s Heart:  God’s Dwelling Place   (Beth Moore study)

“Have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.”  (Exodus 25:8) This Beth Moore study explores the fascinating account of the building of the Old Testament tabernacle, teaches the significance of its intricate design, and reveals God’s deep and persistent desire to be in an intimate relationship with His people.  As we journey through this study, we will be challenged to prepare our hearts to become dwelling places for God–homes for His love and glory–and guided to a more intimate relationship with Him.

Facilitators:  Debbie Thul and Heather Malkinson

Lord, I Want to Know You (Kay Arthur)

Your walk with God will be transformed when you know Him more fully by studying His names–Creator, Healer, Protector, Provider, and many others.  You’ll gain power to stand strong.  You’ll find strength for times of trial, comfort for pain, provision for your soul’s greatest needs.  Come and get to know your God better through this devotional-type study of His names.

Facilitators:  Karen Thomas and Leone Thomas

Unglued  (Lysa TerKeurst)

Do you ever feel your emotions are at the mercy of your life’s circumstances?  Ever have trouble dealing with conflict?  WIsh you knew how to speak up, but stuff your feelings back down inside, instead?  In her book, Unglued, Lysa Terkeurst offers ways that women can deal with emotions and conflict in a more appropriate, Christ-like manner.  The truth is “we can’t always fix our circumstance, but we can fix our minds on God.” Join us if dealing with the conflict in your life sounds better than becoming unglued.

Facilitators:  Karen Vine and Nikki Stuart

Parenting with Grace:  Creating an Atmosphere of Grace

Through DVD teaching and class discussion, Dr Tim Kimmel helps us grasp what it is that our children need most from us.  He gives practical, good-sense ways to give our children the security of unconditional, grace-filled love.  This series will help keep you from investing energy in a long list of things that don’t matter, to parent with confidence by meeting the three driving inner needs of your children, and ultimately create an atmosphere within your family that brings the best out of everyone.

Facilitators:  Andrea Christensen, Dee Harmer, Kathryn Mark
