"The Daniel Prayer" by Anne Graham Lotz
Led by Marian Ayers (Room 210 at 4:00 p.m.)
Book Cost: $9.00
Do you ever long for a more effective prayer life? Do you ever feel your prayers are anemic? Hollow? Then this six-session video Bible study is for you! In the study, Anne looks at the life of Daniel and unpacks the prayer he prayed in Daniel 9. Unlike the everyday now-I-lay-me-down-to-sleep kind of prayer, this was a prayer birthed under heartache . . . grief . . . desperation. It was a plea for Heaven to move and change his nation.
Secret Church 18- Cults and Counterfeit Gospels
(Starts March 6)
By David Platt
Led by Eric Wendt (Room 315 at 6:30 p.m.)
The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the twenty-first century.
For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission, followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?” and “How can I recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeits?” Answering these questions will be the aim of Secret Church 18, “Cults and Counterfeit Gospels.”
We will consider the claims of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will also explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including prosperity teaching that is rampant across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this Secret Church not only enabled to discern false gospels, but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and with peoples around the world.
Roman Catholics & Us: Understanding Our Protestant Faith & Root
Led by Tim Spyridon (Room 319 at 6:30 p.m.)

Topics will include sin and salvation, the sacraments, justification, faith and works, sanctification, the treasury of merits, indulgences, purgatory, and Mary and the saints. By bringing clarity to how our core beliefs are similar and differ from our Roman Catholic friends, we bring clarity and a greater understanding of our own faith!
