    Finding God in the Margins by Carolyn Custis James
    Sundays, June 10-August 19, 9:00 AM, Room 201, Newburgh Campus
    In Finding God in the Margins, Carolyn Custis James reveals how the book of Ruth is about God, the questions that surface when life falls apart, and how God reaches into the margins and chooses two marginalized women who, in the eyes of the patriarchal culture, are zeros.
    Against the backdrop of disturbing issues in today's world, this bracing narrative puts on display a radical gospel way of living together as human beings that shouts the Kingdom of God, foreshadows Jesus' gospel, and raises the bar for men and women, then and now.

    James: Mercy Triumphs by Beth Moore
    Tuesdays; June 12-July 31, 6:30 PM, Room 203, Newburgh Campus

    Discover the God who cherishes you. The love story between the prophet Hosea and his unlikely bride, Gomer, is also our love story. When we are looking for identity, God calls us His Own.

Join us for this 7-week study on God’s unfailing love that changes everything. Please purchase your book before the first day of class.  The Vineyard will try to keep books on hand, you can check at 812-479-8777 or click here to purchase through Amazon

    Before Amen
    Thursdays, 9:00-11:00 AM, Worship Center, Crossroads West Campus

    Prayer is not a privilege for the pious, not the art of a chosen few.  Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and His child.  My child, He wants to talk with you.  Even now, as you read these words, He taps at the door.  Open it, welcome Him in.
    Join Max Lucado on a journey that will help you experience a heart connection with God instead of settling for a prayer wish list for God, calm the chaos of your world by embracing a prayer life that brings peace and rest, gain assurance by trading prayer uncertanties for the power of a plan built on biblical prayers and overcome disappointment from unanswered prayers and trust that God hears you.  Led by Julie Volkman.
    Participants will need the book Before Amen (not the study guide).  Julie will have books available the first day of class. 

    Present Over Perfect and Dance, Stand, Run
    Thursdays, 9:00-11:00 AM, room 118, Crossroads West Campus

    Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist

    Present Over Perfect is an invitation to a journey that changed my life. I’ll walk this path with you, a path away from frantic pushing and proving, and toward your essential self, the one you were created to be before you began proving and earning for your worth. Written in Shauna’s warm and vulnerable style, this collection of essays focuses on the most important transformation in her life, and maybe yours too: leaving behind busyness and frantic living and rediscovering the person you were made to be. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out, pulling you free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more, all while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection. Shauna offers an honest account of what led her to begin this journey, and a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people that matter most to us. In these pages, you’ll be invited to consider the landscape of your own life, and what it might look like to leave behind the pressure to be perfect and begin the life-changing practice of simply being present, in the middle of the mess and the ordinariness of life.  Led by Susan Young.   You will need the hardcover book Present Over Perfect (not the study guide) for this class. 

    Dance, Stand, Run: The God-Inspired Moves of a Woman On Holy Ground by Jess Connolly

    Grace is always good news. But it's not cheap—true grace compels us to change. That’s where holiness comes in. Beloved writer and speaker, Jess Connolly will be the first to admit that not long ago, like many women, she grasped grace but she had forgotten holiness.  Dance, Stand, Run charts her discovery that holiness was never meant to be a shaming reminder of what we “should” be doing, but rather a profound privilege of becoming more like Christ. That’s when we start to change the world, rather than being changed by it. Dance, Stand, Run is an invitation to the daughters of God to step into the movements of abundant life: dancing in grace, standing firm in holiness, and running on mission. Through story and study, Jess casts a fresh vision for how to live into your identity as a holy daughter of God, how to break free of cheap grace and empty rule-keeping, and finally, how to live out your holy influence with confidence before a watching world.  Spoiler alert: it’s a beautiful thing. For anyone longing to take their place in what God is doing in the world, Dance, Stand, Run will rally your strength, refresh your purpose, and energize your faith in a God who calls us to be like Him. You will need the book Dance, Stand, Run (not the study guide).
