The Apprentice Series - The Good and Beautiful God (starts August 21) MONDAY NIGHTS
How would you like to fall in LOVE with the God Jesus knows? Too often we have been given a false narrative of who God is and how he interacts with us on a daily basis. False narratives can distort our view of who God is and cripple our ability to truly see the LOVE that God, the Father wants lavish on us. Join us on a study that opens our heart, mind and spirit to who God is through the lens of his one and only son, Jesus. This class is one of three that will be offered through the year as part of the Apprentice Series by James Bryan Smith.
This is a 6 week study and will begin on Monday, August 21st from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at Studio 3 located in E. Main Cafe and Audio Intersection in downtown Canton.

Experiencing God (starts August 24) THURSDAY NIGHTS
In this 8 week study you will unpack the seven realities that Moses experienced in Exodus 3. These seven realities teach believers how to develop an obedient LOVE relationship with God and to explore the truth that will open your spiritual eyes to seeing God at work around you in your day to day life. We serve a living God that invites us to join in His activity in the world so we can truly begin experiencing God.
