For those of you who may not know me, I am Jen Babcock and I am the Women’s ministry director here at CLC. Romans 15:4 says, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope." The scriptures teach us endurance, which gives us hope. A couple years ago, we began this weekly Women's Bible Study starting at the beginning, in Genesis, and we have been working our way through the whole Bible! And now, for the Winter Session, we are finishing up the Old Testament. And we really want you join us in this journey, even if you're just picking up where left off last! The group will be held on Mondays from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. via Facebook Messenger starting January 17. We understand that not everyone will be able to join us off that bat, but we're trusting that as circumstances change, we can find a time, as the weeks progress, that more and more people can join us.

In coming to Gamblers Anonymous and genuinely seeking help, you have probably taken the most important step of your life up to this point. This group is designed to help anyone on this journey, whether you're new to this group or have had experience in Gamblers Anonymous before. This group gives practical advice that has been tried and tested down through the years by many compulsive gamblers. All we ask of you is that you keep an open mind when you attend Gamblers Anonymous. Up to this point, your life (if you are like us) has been unmanageable, directed by your uncontrollable urge to gamble. The pattern your life has been following can only result in misery, heartache, and financial drain for you and those closest to you. The Gamblers Anonymous way of life will obviously be very different to you. It may even frighten you. But we can assure you, the Gamblers Anonymous way of life will result in happiness, peace of mind, and self-respect. All that is required is an open mind and a genuine desire to stay away from your next bet, one day at a time. We welcome you to Gamblers Anonymous and please, if there is anything you don't understand, ask someone for help. You are no longer alone. Accept the hand of friendship. This group will meet on Mondays from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. resuming again on January 17 at Christian Life Church in Eliot, Maine. If you are interested in joining this group, please contact the group leader, Doug Krebs. Hit the button that says "Contact Group Leader."
Joe & Amanda Chenevert
Join Joe & Amanda Chenevert on Monday nights via ZOOM for "Cleansing Stream." To sign up for this group, hit the "SIGN UP" button on this page. Cleansing Stream is the introduction for the believer to God's power to heal and deliver us from wounds & experiences from our past that the devil tries to keep us bound in. Healing & deliverance must not be looked at as a once-in-a-life-time event but as part of the ongoing sanctification process. An individual can be instantly set free from a particular bondage by the power of God. However, he or she, while in this earthly body, is meant to continue advancing in Christ-likeness. So how does deliverance apply to Christians? The Bible says, “Do not give the devil a foothold (a place)” (Ephesians 4:27, NIV). When we experience the life-changing power of salvation like the Hebrew people found out, the land—our lives—is legally ours, but it needs a bit of clearing out! In this group, we'll teach you how the the Holy Spirit, through the Word of God, opens our eyes so we can embrace truth, repent, and reject the lies. Armed with His truth and authority, we can remove the enemy from our land. We'll meet on Monday evenings from 6:00-7:30 p.m. via ZOOM. Class begins on January 17. The materials for this course cost $35. You can pay by cash or check at CLC. Please hit the SIGN UP button on this page so you can get the ZOOM link as well as other details about the class. We're looking forward to all that God has in store for you!

In order to become One with God we have to change our thinking. We are commanded to love the Lord with all of our mind. One of the biggest obstacles to that is how ignorant we are to how man’s thinking has been corrupted by sin after his fall in the garden. 1. Sin affects our thinking and imaginations. 2. We can choose to have good thoughts and imaginations 3. Imagination is where the battle of victory or defeat takes place.
Bible Studies for a Firm Foundation
Pastor Denise Satrape
Join Pastor Denise on Wednesday mornings or evenings for "Bible Studies for a Firm Foundation." To sign up for this group, hit the "SIGN UP" button on this page. Many of us hold to biblical truths without ever really knowing them for ourselves or how these truths have been revealed from Genesis to Revelation. Oftentimes, we have done a surface study on these foundational truths while never really grasping an understanding that shapes our faith on solid ground. We are living in a time where it is imperative that the foundation of our faith be firmly established so that when the storms of life come, we are unshakable because our foundation is built firmly on the knowledge and understanding of the Word of God. In this group, we'll dig deeper into the Word of God together either establishing or reaffirming our understanding on some important topics. We will use the workbook entitled, “Bible Studies for a Firm Foundation” and our Bibles as we explore 28 different foundational truths. This will be an interactive study, where we will unfold the word of God and gain a heart of understanding that will empower our faith. Some of the many topics we will cover are: • Freedom from Sin and the Lordship of Jesus • What is True Repentance? • The Power in Water Baptism • How to Have Intimate Fellowship with Jesus • The Power and Authority of God’s Word • What is God’s Plan for Prosperity? • What is God’s Provision for Healing? • How to Have Great Faith in God These studies have shaped and established the faith of many throughout the years, and I'm excited to see how it will shape yours too! You have the option of either attending Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. or Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. in person at CLC or via ZOOM starting January 19. We highly encourage you to come in person if you are able. The cost for this class is $23 for the book. You can purchase the materials ahead of time at CLC. The title is, “Bible Studies for a Firm Foundation" by Bob & Rose Weiner. Childcare is available for the PM group only to those who sign up in advance, which will be needed to adequately prepare.

Our vision and mission is to lead and equip people to minister unto the Lord in worship as priests. 1 Peter 2:9 says, "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."

Anytime a child is adopted by a family, there is an evaluation for the child to see if there are any past situations or environments that could adversely affect them as they move to a new, safe home. In Christ, when we're adopted into the Father's new home, we need God to help us identify past wounds so that we can be healed. 1. We begin by understanding how broken hearted we are. 2. We must learn to have close fellowship. 3. God will not leave us orphans John 14:18 (KJV)
Pastor Ron Satrape
Join Pastor Ron on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. for "Spiritual Intelligence." To sign up for this group, hit the "SIGN UP" button on this page. Two quotients analyze our minds and emotions: IQ and EQ. But for too long, we have ignored a deeper dimension - spiritual intelligence. Because believers have the mind of Christ through the Holy Spirit, we have the capacity for brilliance. God invites us to embark on a journey of discovery as he reveals mysteries and helps us bring our perspective in line with his - transforming our understanding and endowing us with spiritual intelligence. In this eye-opening class, Pastor Ron will explore spiritual intelligence using Kris Vallotton's multi-week course where you'll learn how God invites us to think like him. We'll dive into questions like: - What are the five dimensions of spiritual intelligence? - How can I build new neural pathways to supernatural thinking? - How do I recognize my sphere of influence and the borders of my divine assignment? - And much more! As you listen to the Holy Spirit and realize what it means to have the mind of Christ, you'll discover that you have the capacity for life-transforming spiritual intelligence unavailable in any other way. This group will meet Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in person only at CLC starting January 19. The cost for this class is $35 ($20 for the book & $15 for workbook).
