 Marriage Moment

Change in marriage is a given!
 
God is all about change! So it will be with out marriages! Either we can embrace the changes that He calls us to make as individuals and as families, or we can resist and miss the blessings He has in store for us! Let's be ready to change for His glory!

 
Isaiah 43:18-19

18 “Forget the former things;
    do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

We are here for you! Call, email or stop on by!

 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. For those who desire to be in a verse-by-verse study of God's Word, please feel free to join in! The Journey classes (1, 2 & 3) will continue in their study in the Gospel Project.
