Class One: I’d Like You More if you Were More like Me (Weeks 1-6)
The word intimacy can make any one a little uncomfortable. John Ortberg reminds us why intimacy is not something to fear but something to work toward. In this study you will see how true closeness with others starts with the most mundane, everyday moments of connection. Over this six week study you will learn how to connect on a deeper level with the people God has placed in your life, both inside and outside of your group, as you grow closer to the One who made you for relationships.

Class Two: Just Walk Across the Room (Weeks 7-10)
What if you knew that by taking ten steps across a room and saying hello to another person, you could impact his or her eternity? It has nothing to do with methods and everything to do with taking a genuine interest in another human being. Bill Hybells, author of “Just Walk Across the Room”, teaches us a natural and empowering approach to evangelism modeled after Jesus himself. This dynamic four-week experience will equip and inspire you to follow Jesus’ lead by taking simple walks across rooms to extend care, compassion, and inclusiveness to people who might need a touch of God’s love today.

 I invite you to attend these studies, I look forward to leading them with your presence.

Sing! How Worship Transforms Your Life, Family & Church
Spiritual Discipline Class ●  Led by David Bailes
Cost: $5.00 Book Required (Purchase in the Pritchard Media Center)

This class is based on the book of the same title by Keith Getty.  Getty is known as a modern day hymn-writer whose most well-known song/hymn is “In Christ Alone” and who, along with his wife Kristyn, is a popular worship leader/concert artist.  This study will cover the topics of why we sing, how singing impacts our hearts and minds, cultivating a culture of singing in the home, equipping churches for wholeheartedly singing to the Lord, and inspiring us to see congregational singing as a radical witness to the world.

Bible Study with Bobby
Bible Study ● Led by Bobby Morrow
Cost: FREE (Please bring your Bible)

We are going to spend time on Wednesday Evenings in prayer and Bible Study. We will pray for the needs in our congregation and the teams that are working to make Pritchard the best it can be. We will share a time of Bible Study together that I hope will help to prepare you to better serve our Lord. I have led a study called Authentic this past fall in Pritchard Connect and it has been truly inspiring. I will be using some of the Bible passages in that study to center our thinking. I hope you will plan to join us in the fellowship hall each Wednesday evening.

We all need a plan for our money.  Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan!  This course will teach God’s ways of handling money.  Through video teaching, class discussions, and interactive small groups, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be.  This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, and how to spend and save wisely. “ If you will live like no one else, later you can live and give like no one else.”  −Dave Ramsey
