Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered

What went wrong? Why did God let this happen?

Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it?

Bible teacher Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands daily disappointments and life-altering loss.

By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.

In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa offers a safe place to share your disappointments,

fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations,

and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity.

Tuesday evening  from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

In 7 sessions, Seamless  covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible,

tying them together into the greater story of Scripture.

Whether you've grown up hearing Bible stories or you're exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming.

Experience the Bible as a whole as you gain clarity and confidence in your understanding of Scripture.

Discover a biblical context that reshapes and brings to life stories from the Old and New Testaments.

These groups are a great place for those looking for spiritual accountability and deeper spiritual growth.
