He left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. That’s one way to describe Peter. Here’s another: poor, uneducated, quick-tempered, and full of doubts and fears. Doesn’t even sound like the same man. And that’s the point of Simon Peter, a six-week adult Bible study by Adam Hamilton. Peter was just an ordinary guy who heard and followed God’s extraordinary call. Discover how you, too, have special gifts, talents, and abilities that God can use to make a difference today.

Chapters Include:

  1. The Call of Simon the Fisherman
  2. Walking with Jesus in the Storm
  3. Bedrock or Stumbling Block?
  4. “I Will Not Deny You”
  5. From Cowardice to Courage
  6. The Rest of the Story

Extra books will be available so you do not need to have pre-ordered a book to attend.



All are invited to gather for a newly formed church-wide Prayer Ministry, meeting the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of every month, 6:30-7 a.m. in the church library, starting Sept. 19th.  This will be a short but powerful time for reflection, scripture, individual and corporate prayer, bringing us into God’s Presence, experiencing a deeper walk with Him, growing our faith.  No long-term commitment is required; join us as often or whenever you can.   If you’re seeking a closer walk with God and have a prayer need; If you feel called to pray for our church and for the Body of Christ; If you’d like to intercede for those who need prayer;
