    A Life Well Lived
    A study by Dr. Chuck Swindoll
    As Christians, we often wonder if our decisions and behaviors are truly pleasing to God. Are we living life well in God's eyes? Beginning in Micah 6:8, Swindoll clarifies what God desires for His children, making each quality come to life through Peter, Joseph, David, and Daniel. We will learn that by digging deeply into the principles of God's Word and hearing His voice, we can find freedom from unscriptural notions of failure and understand the rewards of an obedient heart. Cost: $10

    Calling all current and prospective Calvary ALG and Bible study teachers and leaders! As we serve together to encourage the spiritual growth of others, we may sometimes feel the need to more effectively communicate God's Word.

Come learn ways to sharpen presentation skills appropriate for a diverse group of people. The "Deeper Roots, Wider Shoots" series is not just another training session, but rather it is a time of refreshment and renewal for pastors, ALG leaders, elective Bible study teachers, elders, deacons, and their spouses. It is also geared for those who are interested in teaching at Calvary.
