Wednesday Night Life Group: Trustworthy

A Study of 1st & 2nd Kings with Susie Taylor, Gwen Hughes and Katherine Balke

When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re much more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, you can join Lysa Terkeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply personal applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God. If you are interested or wish to register, please contact Class begins on January 13th ZOOM only. Materials: Trustworthy Workbook, can be purchased in LRC.
