  • The Foundations – A Study of Genesis and Origins

       Large group study with Terry Cooper


    This class is based on Ken Ham’s study, The Foundations.  It presents the importance of taking God’s Word as written, beginning in Genesis, and the consequences our world is reaping because of a loss of Biblical authority in culture and in our churches.  The study will discuss questions such as “Are the creation days in Genesis literal days?” “Why should we trust the Bible?” and “Does science confirm the Bible’s history?”


  • 33: The Series – A Man’s Story and a Man’s Traps

       Men’s Group with John Lee Hawkins and Scott Shepherd

       Classroom 8      ◊ Workbooks $15


    In the pursuit of authentic manhood, every man must understand and come to grips with the defining moments and key relationships that have shaped his unique “story.”  He must also understand what lies behind the manhood traps and beneath the heart idols that can distract him from the truth and the power of the gospel.  This study includes Volumes 2 and 3 of 33: The Series by Men’s Fraternity.  Volume 2 will show men to learn from their past, come alive to their present, and enjoy God’s best in the future.  Volume 3 deals head-on with issues like sexual lust, our desire for control, and unfounded fear – showing men a biblical battle plan to replace specific temptations with God’s better promises.


  • The Armor of God

      Young Ladies’ Group with Sara Vogel and Tresbien Gambino

      Classroom 1      ◊ Workbook $13     


    All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, and your family.  But the enemy’s battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, by Priscilla Shirer, is more than a biblical description of the believer's inventory.  It is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.


     


  • A Study of the Book of Romans

      Ladies’ Bible Study with Kathy Crask     Classroom 3      


    After a brief introduction to open his letter to the church at Rome, the Apostle Paul gets right to the point — from the beginning of time until now, people have no excuse for not knowing God! For the power of the invisible God is wonderfully on display for all to see throughout His creation! We are without excuse and all humanity - Jew and Gentile alike - stands guilty before God and worthy of death.  But Hallelujah, God makes us righteous through belief in the shed blood and death of Jesus! This is grace, and what does this marvelous grace mean for us today? Shall we continue in sin after receiving this grace? How can the Holy Spirit help us overcome the struggle of sin? How comforting it is to know that through all of life’s ups and downs there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that can separate us from the love of God!

     



  • Philippians and Colossians

      Adult Bible Study with Alex Fogle and Brian Perry     Classroom 7  


    Paul was a man of worldly success while he lived as a Pharisee and devout Jew; yet, he walked away from it all to fulfill the call of Jesus Christ that was put before him.  Paul’s letter to the Philippians explains that he considered all things a loss – worthless - compared to the ‘greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.’  His letter to the Colossians provides clear instruction that we need to hold to the truth of Jesus Christ and not be deceived by heresies or the traditions of men.  Despite his trials and tribulations, Paul remained steadfast in his call with joy and great confidence.  With the Power of the Holy Spirit, by holding onto God’s Word, and in knowing the hope that is in Jesus Christ, we can also remain steadfast in sharing the gospel with joy and great confidence.

     


  • The Pastoral Epistles

      Adult Bible Study with Will Cooper    Classroom 4          


    The “Pastoral Epistles” (1 & 2 Timothy and Titus) were written by the Apostle Paul at the end of his life and ministry.  By the time Paul writes 2 Timothy he is again in a Roman prison.  And yet, his concern for the churches continues.  Aware that his life is nearing its end, he is concerned that the mission he began should continue after he is gone.  Timothy and Titus were companions of the Apostle Paul, and they oversaw churches in Ephesus, Crete and Corinth.  Paul charges both men to continue to “fan into flame the gift of God,” and as we study these last letters of Paul, we will be reminded that the work of the church is never done.
