Ladies Bible Study
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.
Several men at Live Oak have been involved with Kairos Ministry for the past 10 years! That means twice a year a team of Kairos volunteers enters Ridgeland Correctional Institution for a 4 day weekend experience. The mission for these volunteers is simple…Share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men.
Kairos in ecumenical. They refrain from denominational traditions and focus on the unity of the love and hope of Jesus! Volunteers are guided by the call to “listen listen love love.”
Matthew 25:43 clearly shares that we are to visit those in prison. So many of the residents are eagerly awaiting somebody who will love unconditionally and offer hope for a better tomorrow. (Isn’t that what we all want?) Most residents will someday return to the community on the outside. Kairos helps these men know and believe that they can be productive and successful citizens. Our goal is that these men are redeemed, “bought back”, just like us!
If you are interested in serving with the Kairos Ministry contact Andre Nougaret, Bob Keene, or Tony Daniels. Training dates for the next walk are September 7th & 21st and October 5th & 19th. In order to participate in the next Kairos weekend October 24 - 27, 2019, you need to attend 3 out of the 4 training days. There will be other opportunities to help with the October weekend such as cookies, financial assistance, and prayer.
