 Marriage Moment

 

In marriage we tend to judge ourselves by our intentions and our spouses by their actions. We give ourselves credit for thinking good thoughts even if we don’t act on them. What would happen if we started giving our spouses the benefit of the doubt, too?

"Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:2-3

 Tuesday Morning Bible Study

Tuesdays - 6:45am - 8:00am - STBC Conference Room

Every Tuesday morning a group of FiT men gather to study the week's Quarterly lesson and prepare for Sunday. We share prayer requests and try to make it through the lesson (with varying levels of success). This group is open to anyone who would like to attend. The conference room is just beside the church office at the main entrance. 

 


 

Two Bible Study Opportunities!

Coming soon to STBC!

1. “South Tulsa Baptist University” – an new opportunity on Sunday Nights
This Fall STBC will be beginning a “University” approach to Discipleship. We will eventually offer several classes to choose from in a given “mini-mester” (as opposed to a semester). We will begin slowly and start with just one course for the first 2 “mini-mesters”. The first class will be an apologetics class starting Sunday August 24 - September 28. Questions? Contact Dru Finley.

2. Spiritual Disciplines Class – a new opportunity on Wednesday nights
Discipline is so important but very difficult in our cram-packed lives. Or so we think. If we’re ever going to discipline ourselves for the purpose of godliness, we’ve got to do it when life is like it is now: busy, unsettled, distracted. Get focused with us Wednesday August 27 at 5:45 in room C241, as we journey together toward a life of godliness. You will be encouraged and challenged to walk more closely with God. This class is for new believer and mature believers. Questions? Contact Dru Finley.

 


 

GALATIANS STUDY IN FIRST LEG!
 
First Leg will be diving into Galatians for the months of July and August and will head into Hebrews for the 4th quarter of 2014.
