A new study called "Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break," by Kelly Minter begins at University Church of Christ on Sept. 18.

What breaks your heart? What makes you weep? In the Bible, Nehemiah gives us an example of a broken heart. He learned about the suffering of those in Jerusalem and he wept for days. He had compassion and sacrificed to help those in need. He left the comfort of a Persian palace to go to a destroyed Jerusalem and rebuild it. Right now we live in a world that is lost and hurting, possibly on the verge of self-destruction. Come learn how to reach out and make a difference.

The class meets 9:30-11:30 a.m. every Tuesday starting Sept. 18 through Nov. 13. The format includes independent Bible study, video, discussion groups, and prayer. The class will be facilitated by Tammy Benson. The group will meet at University Church of Christ located at 3155 Dave Ward Dr. Childcare is provided free of charge.

Big things can happen when we come together for God’s glory. This study can change your heart and help you put action into your faith. Be the hands and feet of Jesus.
