Get Right, Church! A Study of 1 Corinthians

Heart Strong: Spiritual Strength for the Long Haul from 2 Corinthians
Mark Taylor | Wednesdays, 7:00 PM, April 7 – May 26 | Zoom | Pre-Registration Required Here
Resilient, confident, tough – Could it be that there is so much more to these qualities than pop-psychology, self-help books, coach-speak, and action movies have to offer? What if there are eternal spiritual principles that truly equip us for the long haul no matter what life throws our way? Paul’s second letter to the church in Corinth is not only his most intimate and transparent book, it just may be his most practical treatment of spiritual health and vitality. This eight-week study will draw us closer to Jesus while equipping to us live “Heart Strong.” As Paul says in chapter four, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.“
