Please join us this spring as we read and study, Surprised by Suffering, by R.C. Sproul.  Using the Bible and this timely resource, we will learn about the place of pain in our lives along with how to respond biblically to trials and suffering.

From the publisher:

“Suffering often seems to catch us by surprise. The pain that invades our lives may come from our own suffering or that of a loved one.  All too often, it prompts us to suspect God of wrongdoing.”

“In this classic book, Dr. Sproul argues that we should not be surprised by suffering; instead, we should expect pain and sorrow in this life. God promises in His Word that difficult times will come upon us, but He also promises that He allows suffering for our good and His glory, and He will never give us more than we can bear with His help.” 

You may join us on either Tuesday mornings from 10:00-11:30AM or Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:00PM.  Tuesday mornings will begin January 31st and Thursday evenings will begin February 2nd. A schedule will be provided at the first study.

The original book has been republished in a revised and expanded edition. Please be sure to buy the light blue, hardcover copy. You may purchase the book online through our church bookstore.

In order to be best prepared, please read chapter one before the first class.  There are no questions at the end of the chapters.  Thank you

We are located just 15 minutes from Amherst and Williamsville, and directions are available here:

Both studies will take place at the Family Life Center (Fireside Room), just seconds down the road from the church.  All ladies are welcome and we encourage you to invite a friend (sorry, no childcare is available).  We look forward to having you join us.
