Faith Shapers (08.28.19)
Faith Shapers is not your ordinary bookclub. It’s an opportunity to explore selections that will intentionally grow and shape your faith through reading and discussion in community. Our next book, beginning August 28th, is Unoffendable by Brandt Hansen.
Unoffendable - Not Entitled to get angry? Really?
It’s a radical, provocative idea: We are not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The book challenges the idea that Christians can ever harbor “righteous anger” or that there even is such a thing for believers. Giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do. Few books offer such a radical, provocative proposal to consider - it is possible to choose to be “unoffendable.”
Group discussions are done though our Facebook group LOCC Faith Shapers. You can jump in any time! Here’s the link to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/622787064887029/?ref=bookmarks. Come and join the discussion!

Ladies Bible Study - Your Divine Design
Do you know how God has uniquely wired you? Every believer was created to play a strategic role in the body of Christ with the gifts God has given them. But many of today's Christians face one difficult question: How do I discover my spiritual gifts and then use them effectively in my church? This series will unpack key passages from Romans, Ephesians, and 1 Corinthians to explore the role of spiritual gifts in the believer's life, while helping you to pinpoint your own. With Biblical insight and practical steps, you'll learn how to discover, develop, and deploy your spiritual gifts so you can live a life of greater impact.
Join us this September as we start the Divine by Design Bible study. We are offering 2 opportunities for this study, Tuesday nights at 7:00pm and Thursday mornings at 10:00am. Childcare will be available at the Thursday morning session.
