Bible Classes

Bible Class Opportunities Abound Throughout the Week

Sunday Mornings at 9:15am

S2  Scripture and Science – Pastor Charlie’s study will begin on Sunday, September 16, at 9:15am in the Fellowship Hall.  We will be examining some of the latest scientific information from top scientists in a variety of study fields to see how science agrees with the message of the Scriptures.  The title is “S2” which stands for Scripture & Science. Often as Christians we are told that science has all the answers and that the evolutionary theory is fact.  Evolution is taught as fact in our schools.  We are told that if we believe what Scripture says about God creating the world in six 24-hour days we are rejecting all of science.  We are given the impression that all scientists believe and accept evolution as the explanation of how the world and all life came to be.  This is simply NOT true.  Scores of scientists in every field are turning to the “other paradigm” of a universal creator and a short creation time/new earth view.  Come and join us—bring your Bible and join us for this study that incorporates Scripture, science and history.

#struggles – Following Jesus in a selfie-centered world. Join Paul and Teresa Bauman on Sunday mornings at 9:15am from September 23 to October 21. We will consider what it means to be hungry to regain control over our lives and put Christ first again. This five-week study walks through biblical values that all Christ followers know are essential, but are even more important for our maxed out, selfie-centered world. It’s time to refresh and rediscover our understanding of the biblical principles that life with Christ brings: contentment, intimacy, authenticity, compassion, rest and more. We’ll meet in the youth room upstairs off the balcony.

The Anatomy of a Disciple: So Many Believers. So Few Disciples. –  This study is an incredibly fresh, practical and relatable series, identifying eight elements of Christ’s life that ought to be reflected in yours. Offering a common language to what is generally understood as a complex idea, The Anatomy of a Disciple provides awareness of what God intended for authentic and sustainable spiritual growth, allowing you to respond to what He is calling you to do. Led by Jan Steinbrueck. We’ll meet in the youth room upstairs off the balcony.

Monday Mornings at 9:00am

“Pre-Game” with Pastor Steve – Have you ever sat in church on a Sunday morning, listened to the scripture readings and thought, “What the heck does that mean?” Sometimes it may be hard to find the common thread between the two or three lessons read during the worship services. Come join our growing group with a perfect way to start each new week. Our Monday morning Bible class looks at the upcoming Scriptures and takes time to consider the theme and personal application. Our conversations are often unpredictable, regularly entertaining, and also lead us to a place where we can find the “sweet spot” of God’s love and grace for our lives. Join the conversation on Monday mornings at 9am.

Monday Evenings at 7:15pm

“Just Open the Door” – Hospitality is one of the best ways to live out the two greatest commandments: loving God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself. But often we get caught up in perfecting our homes and conversations before we open our doors. Using the study, Just Open the Door, by Jen Schmidt, we will look to Jesus as our model for hospitality. We will discover how He lived a life full of interruptions, yet always welcomed people and invited them to follow Him. Let’s learn to replace cultural expectations with biblical hospitality to create a legacy of invitation and to reflect Jesus through simple acts of service. Join us Monday evenings at 7:15pm in the church library. 

Thursday Mornings at 9:30am

“Whatever Happened to…” – Often you’ll see TV specials or online articles that ask, “Whatever Happened to…?” in regard to people of the past—disgraced politicians, child star actors, former athletes and so on. Have you ever pondered what may have happened to the disciples beyond the pages of the New Testament gospels? Starting September 27 we will explore what happened to the men who first answered Jesus’ call to follow Him. Where did they go and what did they do after Jesus’ resurrection and ascension? Join us on Thursday mornings at 9:30am in the church
library. Hope to see you there!

Friday Mornings at 6:00am

Men’s Bible Study with Pastor Steve – Our early morning small group meets on Fridays at 6am.  We are looking at the 10 Commandments, why they are important and still relevant today.  This study is for guys that desire to grow as a man of God. We meet every Friday morning at 6am in the library. The coffee is hot and fresh; and we can always find an extra chair!
