Wednesday Night Bible Studies

The spring semester of Roots Bible Studies began Wednesday, February 12th and continued through April 22nd. Listed below are the original classes that were offered. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and shutting down the church building, most of these classes were not completed.

  • The 7 Churches of Revelation and the Rapture

    ◊   Large Group Study with Terry Cooper in the Worship Center

    The Book of Revelation is the revealing of Jesus Christ and His eternal plan to the Apostle John. Very early in the book, Jesus gives a message to 7 churches to whom John then writes. The first half of this class will cover Jesus' message to the 7 churches of Revelation. The second half will cover the doctrines and teachings of the Rapture of the Church. Using some of Dr. David Reagan's materials on prophecy and Revelation, we'll dive into the questions "what is Jesus' message and what follows His message to these churches?"

  • 1 Corinthians

    ◊   Ladies' Group with Emi Cooper and Jessica Camic

    ◊   Classroom 1  ◊ Spaces Available:  25  ◊ Workbooks $15  

    Christianity calls us to sacrifice instead of living for oneself.  We have to choose one or the other-we can't do both. The Christians in Corinth tried to live the Christian life in a worldly way, and Paul wrote the letter of 1 Corinthians to a divided and self-centered people to remind them to follow Jesus and only Jesus. This class will follow Jennie Allen's study and video series of 1 Corinthians that walks into the messy lives of the Corinthians. We'll see how the truth of the gospel and the Spirit of God can empower us to choose to follow Jesus every day of our lives.

  • True Strength

      Men's Group with Justin Dearinger, Dan Makowski & Matt Spaulding

      Classroom 8  ◊ Spaces Available:  25      

    Where we are weak, the Lord is strong. In our weaknesses, the Lord's strength shines and lives in us. Join us as a few men share some of their weaknesses and as we study how the Lord is glorified in our weaknesses, hardships, difficulties, and insults. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 But He (the Lord) said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 

  • HOPE -  The Book of Jeremiah

      Ladies' Study with Kathy Crask                       

      Classroom 1  ◊ Spaces Available:  25        

    Jeremiah, known as the weeping prophet, was called at a young age to warn Israel of God's impending judgement unless they repented. We will look at the personal struggles of Jeremiah and why the nation was facing God's judgement. Yet, in the midst of destruction comes HOPE...the coming reign of the Righteous One and a new covenant written upon the heart of man instead of stone tablets.  


  • Ruth and Jonah Bible Study

    ◊  Small Group Study with Will Cooper

    ◊  Classroom 4  ◊  Spaces Available:  25

    The Old Testament books of Ruth and Jonah paint two very different pictures of loyalty and obedience. Ruth shows obedience to Naomi and her God, even as a foreigner herself. On the other hand, Jonah struggles in being obedient to God's commands, and ends up rebelling against God. As we study these two short Old Testament books, we'll discover what true obedience and loyalty to God look like today.

  • The Gospel of Mark

    ◊ Small Group Study with Eddie Webster

    ◊ Classroom 7 ◊ Spaces Available:  25 ◊  Book Cost:  $15

    Mark's Gospel chronicles Jesus' journey from Galilee to Jerusalem, and along the way the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship. This class will follow Francis Chan's study and video series as he walks along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve, we must ask ourselves:  "Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?"
