THE BEATITUDES: HAPPINESS IS A SERIOUS BUSINESS
Sundays 11AM - Noon
Meeting in Room 123 with Chaplain Joe Denton, MDiv
Summary: According to the Beatitudes, we should pursue happiness in the Lord. We need to adopt a theology of happiness. The pursuit of happiness is common to all people. It is the motive behind much of what we do. But the path to true happiness is far different than people think. This course investigates the joys that can be found in knowing God and living his way. All are welcome to join at any time during this 9 week course.
WOMEN’S GROWTH GROUP STUDY
Mondays @ 5:30PM • Starting August 7TH

The Book of Romans, Chapters 9 - 11 (9 lessons at $2.25 per lesson )
God doesn't go back on His promises. He can always be trusted. Romans 9-11 is an extended discussion of the subject of God's sovereignty—election, predestination, and responsibility—focusing on His choice of Israel and His faithfulness to His covenant.

CCU programs are designed to prepare students for a wide variety of career paths while providing students with an active university experience. While the core of CCU is strengthened by a commitment to our common faith, the application of those beliefs after graduation are useful in the church, school or business community. Full-time students who are active members of Mount Carmel Christian Church may receive a tuition scholarship of up to $3,000 per year ($1,500 per semester). Please contact Arlan Howard for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
