      Restoring The Shack

    Based on Best-Selling Book

    Join the author Paul Young on an adventure to explore the metaphor of "The Shack" as the heart and soul of a human being that is broken, and how despite what many of us have been taught, God doesn't sit up on high waiting for us to get our lives together, but comes from within our own brokenness to heal us and draw us closer to him. Learn how the story went from being a story written solely for his children as an expression of how God had changed his life, to the NY Times Bestseller. Through discussion and reflection you may just discover answers to the questions of pain and suffering you have experienced, and move to place of real, lasting healing, too.

    Learning to Hear and Know the Voice of God

    The Bible says, “It not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD (Zech 4:6)… No man can come to God unless the Spirit draw him (John 6:44)… Those who are led by the Spirit are the sons of God (Rom 8:14).”  The key to the Apostle Paul’s ministry is found in 1 Thess. 1:5, for “our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.” In this study, John Hicks, will help us see Jesus model for us, “How to walk in the Spirit and to hear the Father.”  It is in the atmosphere of prayer that the Holy Spirit nurtures and develops our faith and redirects our wills.
