April Seminar: Personal Holiness in Times of Temptation

Join us in April for a 4-week Thursday night video seminar on personal holiness presented by Walk Thru the Bible’s Bruce Wilkinson. The class will meet from 7:00-9:00 pm on April 7, 14, 21, and 28 in the Gold Room of our South Building. Cost for materials is $10 per person. Register now. Need more information? Contact Steve Groves, 253-752-2313 or

The four sessions cover:

  • Holiness: How to Get There from Here. Discover why the Lord’s call to holiness is so important and what the Bible means when it tells us to be “set apart.”
  • Temptation: Why It Is So Tempting. Walk through the seven stages of temptation and learn how to recognize and avoid traps.
  • Sexuality: The Toughest Temptation. Nothing provides as much opportunity to temptation as one’s sex life. Success or failure has a dramatic impact on everyone, but God’s way provides tremendous rewards.
  • Victory. In the final session, attendees learn to recognize their own personal temptation patterns and find proactive ways to become the man or woman of God they want to be.
