THE 10 SECOND RULE BOOK STUDY
SEPTEMBER 16 THRU NOVEMBER 18, 9:15 AM
All are welcome to this study of The 10 Second Rule by Clare De Graaf. Each week a different chapter will be presented and discussed. Books will be available in the Narthex and in class. Pre-reading of chapters is encouraged but not required as each week the leader will review the main points before discussion. From Amazon: “All over the world, Christians are returning to the simple faith of Jesus by living by the 10-Second Rule. In so doing, you can discover the power of simple obedience as Jesus taught it and the early church lived it.” Starting on September 16 through November 18, we will be meeting at 9:15 in the Upper Room for this informative study. Class leaders will be Lowell Gustafson, Jen Wannenburg, Beth Lindgren, Galen Black, Virginia Gardiner, Brian Ivy and Marge Miller.

Description of the book
Americans especially know about living in perpetual anxiety. According to one research program, anxiety-related issues are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men. Stress-related ailments cost the nation $300 billion every year in medical bills and lost productivity.
“The news about our anxiety is enough to make us anxious,” says Max Lucado. But there’s a prescription for dealing with it. In Anxious for Nothing, Lucado invites readers into a study of Philippians 4:6-7.
“With His help you will learn to face the calamities of life. You’ll learn how to talk yourself off the ledge. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you will learn to view bad news through the lens of sovereignty; to discern the lies of Satan and tell yourself the truth. You will manifest a gentleness that is evident to others. Anxiety comes with life. But it doesn’t have to dominate your life.”
THURSDAYS OCTOBER 18, NOVEMBER 1 & 15, AND DECEMBER 6TH AT 6:15 AM
In the church today, many men find themselves confused about what it actually means to be a man. Our culture does little to help. The result is a generation of men who struggle to embrace their responsibilities, roles, and the purpose for which God created them. Join the Wayne Church Men’s Breakfast Thursday mornings, October 18th, November 1st & 15th and December 6th at 6:15am in The Well as we tackle this subject using Mark Batterson’s “Play The Man.” Each lesson provides practical truths for immediate application so that men everywhere can be the brothers, husbands, fathers, and leaders God created them to be.
