Our current course of study is the “Adult Bible Studies” series which includes weekly, thought-provoking lessons facilitated by different members of the class.

Christian Parenting & Fellowship Group

Are you a parent looking for other Christian parents for fellowship and support? Need help on handling tricky parenting issues in a manner consistent with biblical principles? Join CPF – Christian Parenting and Fellowship. Led by Brad and Amy Emerson, this group will meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30am in the Sanctuary Conference Room. We welcome any and all parents – those with babies, preschoolers, elementary school kiddos, teens, and even college students! We will spend the first few weeks getting to know each other and then will start a study (no homework required). There will be nursery for 5 and under, Promiseland for K-5th, and Youth Kickstart for 6th-12th grades. Email or text Amy Emerson

40-day Sugar Fast

Starting in January, Amy Emerson will be leading a group in a 40-Day Sugar Fast – a fast that begins with us giving Jesus our sugar and ends with Jesus giving us more of himself–the only thing that can ever truly satisfy our soul’s deep hunger. On this 40-day journey you’ll learn how to stop fixating on food and other things you use to fill the voids in life and instead fix your eyes on Christ.

The study is based on the book The 40-Day Sugar Fast by Wendy Speake and runs January 6-February 15. We will meet weekly during that time to share wins, struggles, tips, and prayers. We will also have presentations on topics such as exercise, nutrition, mental wellness, and more! Our first group meeting will be Sunday, January 6 at 4pm in the sanctuary conference room at St. Paul. Both men and women are welcome! Contact Amy at 901-647-5582 to sign up. See https://www.wendyspeake.com/sugar-fast-book for more details. The book can be purchased on Amazon. Contact Amy Emerson at texastransplants@msn.com or 901-647-5582 if you would like more info.
