Sunday Morning Bible Classes
“Confidence in Christ” – Now through December 15 at 9:15am
How do you convince someone about Jesus, if they don’t believe the Bible? How can you simplify science to show that the Bible really does fit, and answer our issues?
Mike Bradfield is a Christian, who is an engineer by profession. He has struggled all his life with many things he has been taught about evolution, carbon dating, fossils and the age of the earth. His education and faith both drove him to a simple and practical understanding of Scripture as it relates to our physical world.
His studies have led him to write a practical account to address many of his own concerns. Mike referred to this as “An Engineer’s Examination of the Physical Evidence for Christ.” He deals with such practical issues as the prophesies of Jesus, the New Testament era evidence, how life began, other sources that speak of Jesus and answers the question, “Is Jesus the Christ?”
Come and join Pastor Charlie at 9:15am in the fellowship hall, study the Bible, and examine the evidence of Jesus from an engineer’s perspective.
Simon Peter: Practically Speaking begins January 5 at 9:15am
Pastor Steve will lead the Sunday morning large group Bible study where we will look at the writings of Peter to the early church. Peter writes to people who have just turned their backs on the pagan world. They are now facing intense ridicule and persecution. As such, and with a growing amount of pressure and frustration, Peter writes to encourage them by affirming their faith in the resurrected Jesus and then underscoring the importance of godly suffering.
Many years have passed, but the resistance is still as present today as it was then. Come, be encouraged anew by Peter and his writing. But also be challenged to steadfastness, and instructed to establish households of faith while embracing good stewardship and faithful suffering, being on guard against the deceptive teachings and ways of this world. There’s plenty of present day application for us; let’s discover it together!
Love & Respect begins January 5 at 9:15am
Join lay-leaders Brian and Beth Hackman for a DVD-based class reviewing the BIBLICAL prescription for successful relationships. This is an encouraging, interactive, and humorous study, based on Dr. Emerson Eggerichs’ bestselling book, “Love & Respect.”
In an effort to help you learn more about the opposite sex, this class is for mature adults, husbands, wives, moms and dads. The engaging and entertaining 10-week study gives great insight, practical tools, and helps crack the communication code between husband and wife.
Learn how to experience the ‘good stuff’ God has planned for our relationships without perpetually riding on the crazy cycle fueled by high-stress and poor-communication.
Based on over three decades of counseling as well as scientific and biblical research, this study has given hope & new life to thousands of marriages—yours can be next!
“Our Way Home” begins Thursday, January 23 at 9:30am
Martin Luther once said: “In a word, the Lord’s Prayer is the greatest martyr on earth (as are the name and word of God). Everybody tortures and abuses it; few take comfort and joy in its proper use.” What did he mean? How do we abuse the Lord’s Prayer? Admit it: there have been times when you have recited in the words in worship partly sleeping and partly thinking about what you will eat for lunch. To say that we don’t always full appreciate this Jesus-given prayer is woefully accurate.
Whether you’ve prayed the Lord’s Prayer hundreds of times or are just beginning to learn it, I invite you to study this model prayer and the beauty within it. With different resources and vivid storytelling, we will explore the depth of each petition. Learn to pray the Lord’s Prayer without hesitation and with love for what He has given!
On Thursday, January 23, we will begin to journey through the petitions of the Lord’s Prayer. We meet at 9:30am in the church library. There is an (optional) book that accompanies this study for $15/each. To buy a copy, please contact Pastor Steve so we can place an order prior to our first study.
