Primetimers Ministries

PrimeTimers Sunday Class: 9:20am in W129/130. Join our study on Jonah led by Gary Middleton.

"Jonah: What's Lurking Below" -- Sometimes everything seems right in our life. And then an event happens that brings out an attitude in ourselves that God wants us to address. This is what happened to Jonah. God asked him to go to Nineveh and help the people of that great city repent and turn to God. This revealed Jonah's negative attitude toward the Ninevites which had been lurking below the surface of his heart. Through various means, God reached out to both the people of Nineveh and also to Jonah. Interestingly, we discover that the Ninevites repented; but we are left wondering if Jonah did. What's lurking below the surface of our hearts? This exciting study is taught by Gary Middleton.

Coming Events: 4/21, Hymn Sing Night @ GHCC; 5/26 Filoli Gardens; 6/30 Potluck/Games Night @ GHCC.

Core Men's Ministry

Men's Wednesday PM Bible Study, 7-8:30pm, in W234/235. Join us as we study 1 Thessalonians.

You are invited to join us as we study 1st Thessalonians. Although the thrust of this letter is varied, the subject of Eschatology, i.e. The Rapture, Tribulation (7 years), the Second Coming of Christ and the End Times, seem to be predominant in both of the Thessalonian letters. Every chapter in 1 Thessalonians ends with a reference to the second coming of Christ and may be viewed in some sense as its theme. We would love for you to join us as we venture into the scriptures to see what the Lord has for us to learn with Him. Bring your friends & co-workers!

Marriage Ministry

NEW Marriage Study: "What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage" by Paul Tripp. Begins Sun, 3/11 @ 9:20am. Register online TODAY!

It won't take long for you to be disappointed in marriage. It won't take long for your dreams to be dashed. The reality is that you can't escape the brokenness of this world. You won't be able to avoid the sin of your spouse.

The Bible teaches that we all bring something destructive into our relationships - sin. But as Paul Tripp explains, we buy into the delusion that our biggest problem is outside of us. We blame our spouse. We blame our circumstances. We rarely take seriously the nature of our own sin.

Unlike other marriage books that only diagnose horizontal problems, What Did You Expect? fights a much deeper war over the worship of our heart. It's only when we worship God as Creator, Sovereign, and Savior that we will ever love as we should.

What Did You Expect? challenges you to look into the mirror of God's Word and see yourself with clarity. Maybe it's you. Maybe you love yourself more than your spouse. Maybe you love your little kingdom more than God's big Kingdom. When you reach that level of honesty, you're at the edge of real good things for your marriage.

Start working on a marriage of unity, understanding, and love.
