Course Description
First Corinthians Bible Cafe™ Study!! In this six-week study we will explore Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions–whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We’ll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we’ll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.

Learn how to have open-ended discussions about modern topics and opportunities to cultivate unity- even when we disagree.

The Apostle Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthians as a guide for handling disagreements in communities.In a time when society is so quick to judge others, Paul taught the Corinthians to stand above and live in love, even when it seemed impossible. Perhaps today we need to show love to those around us, even when we don’t have the same perspective. Everything is not all about ourselves, and Melissa Spoelstra’s study First Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree gives practical advice on how to treat those around us in a loving, God-honoring way.

While we’re not always in disagreement with our fellow Christians, we may be divided in our families, neighborhoods, workplaces and communities. When we apply the Scriptures to our culture today, we’re presented with places for living love. When you participate in this study you’ll learn the Biblical methods for unity even when we disagree.

“Living Love When We Disagree” is so timely in today’s cultural climate! Our leaders perceived this study to be very relevant to our lives. We’ll explore how to stay in unity when we disagree on denomination topics such as speaking in tongues or the role of women in the church. Or topics such as political elections. Even topics such as shadow banning and hiding Christian content from social media and search engine sites. Often we avoid the discussion because we don’t know how to find the common ground of unity.

This study covers these Christian topics: Communication, Rebellion, Differences, Unity and Love.

Course Description
Shame Off You Bible Study shares how freedom can be found in choosing to break the cycle of shame by learning from the past, developing healthy thinking patterns, silencing lies, and overcoming the traps of vanity and other people’s opinions.

Shame is an assault on the core of who we are.

It assassinates our character, minimizes our worth, and dashes our hope. Like Adam and Eve, we often hide shame, but hiding never heals it. Left unattended, shame can develop into a crippling reality that paralyzes us. Like an infectious disease, shame impacts everyone . . . but not all shame is bad.

Shame can either be an oppressive and powerful tool of worldly condemnation or a source of conviction that God uses to bring his people back to himself. Having the discernment to know the difference and recognize shame in its many forms can change the course of one’s life.

In a transparently honest style, Denise Pass shares of her experience dealing with shame after learning that her former husband was a sexual offender. Having lived through the aftermath, she leads you into God’s Word where you will see for yourself that God is bigger than your pain, shame, mistakes, and limitations.
