New Bible Study: The Spirit-Led Heart



You are invited to join us for our new Bible Study:  The Spirit-Led Heart by Suzanne Eller.

Here’s the plan!
We will meet this Wednesday night (September 5th) at 6:30pm. The books are $10 and please also bring your Bible and a Journal for this study.

The study will be for 10 weeks. Each week we will read one chapter from the book, and 3 chapters from Acts and we will journal. There are roughly 6 questions at the end of each chapter. Use your journal to write your responses, and also journal as you read the 3 chapters in Acts each week.

We will come together each week and review the study questions together and discuss our highlights and insights from the book of Acts.

Our Goals are to discover what it means to have a Spirit-Led Heart, to be in the Word daily by studying the book of Acts together, and to develop and maintain a habit of journaling.

I’m looking forward to our adventure together!
Hope to see you at our first gathering on September 5th at 6:30pm at Cresset Church – 3707 Garrett Rd. Durham, NC.  If you have any questions, please email us at

Sexual Trauma Awareness: Breaking The Silence

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month! #SAAM

Did you know that one in four women and one in ten men are sexually assaulted?

And these are only from the ones that are actually reported! The prevalence of childhood sexual abuse, date rape and other forms of sexual assault is outrageous and statistically kept hidden.

The reality of sexual trauma is tragic, and we are breaking the silence! Join us as we share awareness for our community, hope for the survivors, and a challenge to fight this atrocity.

This event is open to the public and free of charge. Light refreshments will be provided.

Saturday (April 22) from 10am – 12pm
Sunday (April 23) from 10:30am – 12pm
