Description:
The return of Christ is the “blessed hope” (Titus 2:13, NKJV) for Christians. But what will it mean for the lost? Will the Church go through the Great Tribulation? What will take place for those who remain after Christ raptures His church? Will there be another chance for people to be saved? Who will attend the marriage supper of the Lamb? Come deepen your knowledge of the last days, immerse yourself in the eternal hope of God’s plan, and be motivated to win unbelievers to Christ.

Asheville Gallery of Art June 2017 Show “Taking the Ordinary to Extraordinary” “Taking the Ordinary to Extraordinary” for June at Asheville Gallery of Art Asheville Gallery of Art’s June show features the work of Bill Cole. His colorful shapes, lines, and angles of everyday objects exemplify how the ordinary becomes extraordinary through the eyes of an artist. The show runs June 1-30 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artist on Friday, June 2, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Primarily a self-taught artist, Cole studied watercolor for a short period in Paris while living there in 1996. He has worked in watercolor, oil, acrylics, linocuts, and monotypes. His latest series of paintings are of buildings rendered in oil and acrylic, which he describes as, “leaning more toward minimalism than photographic realism.” In this series, he uses the lines and shapes of buildings as the format for exploring the interplay of shapes, colors, and textures. A native of Arden, NC, Cole began painting after retiring from the Air Force. His other interests include playing mandolin in a small band called Blackberry Jam and hiking. He lives in Waynesville with his wife, Jane, an active art quilter, and their Airedale, Ollie, an expert at catching and fetching turtles. Cole’s work, as well as the paintings of the other 30 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of June. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

Description:
The church in America is in the middle of a powerful storm, the intensity of which is likely to increase in coming months and years. Many Christians are bewildered, disheartened, and concerned by what they see—a culture that’s become increasingly hostile to biblical Christianity and a church whose vital signs are quickly waning. Come get further equipped to help your congregation understand the times in which they are living so they can be revitalized and Christianity can flourish in their spheres of influence. Study Scripture’s emphasis on preaching a gospel of grace and avoiding a gospel of mixed messages, so common in our churches. Receive encouragement and deepen your hope as you study the motivational atmosphere of the early church which flourished despite far worse conditions than those we face today.

Description:
Isis Music Hall presents master fiddler Jamie Laval in an intimate acoustic concert of Celtic music and ancient stories on Friday, June 9 at 7:00 pm. Most of us associate Celtic music with toe-tapping rhythms, bouncy jigs, galloping reels. Jamie promises both the warmly familiar and the bracingly surprising in this program themed towards Celtic music from Brittany, the Gaelic-speaking region of France. Like their northern relatives, the Bretons favor bagpipes and high energy village dances. Yet the minor keys and hypnotic syncopation give the music of Brittany a strikingly exotic quality. Tarentellas, Laridées, Gavottes, and Ronds are just some of the suprises in store. In addition to his fiddle wizardry and irresistible groove-making, Laval will also recount mythic legends from antiquity.

Paul wrote to the Galatians to refute the error of legalism that had infiltrated their churches—and his message of liberty in Christ remains just as pertinent today.

Unpack Paul’s biographical, theological, and moral arguments demonstrating its superiority over the law for a deeper understanding of the freedom you have in and through Jesus.

Comparisons between today’s culture and Noah’s day are hard to deny as we observe generational loss from the church and the secularization of the Western World. Just as Noah built an ark and warned people of the flood, we’re called to tell others about the final judgment and salvation through Jesus Christ. Get better equipped to defend the Christian faith and reach the lost with His Gospel.
