“Breaking the Code” Bible Study Begins Feb. 10

Breaking the Code: Understanding the Book of Revelation Although many Christians find the Book of Revelation to be full of great beauty and comfort, others find this part of the Bible bizarre, bewildering, and sometimes frightening. Bruce M. Metzger provides one of the most important and trustworthy guides of Revelation, and now it includes findings from the most current biblical research. In Breaking the Code Revised Edition, you’ll still find Metzger’s rich content and insights presented in his approachable, non-academic style, but now with additional teaching from New Testament scholar David deSilva. Join Pastor Bridget in this six-week Bible study that…

Men’s Bible Study: The Ten Commandments from the Backside

While the Ten Commandments are known throughout the world, it's not often that we are offered a fresh take on them.  The Bible study The Ten Commandments from the Back Side approaches the Ten Commandments through a unique starting point, a creative retelling, a new "lens," or the eyes of a minor character. The 10-week Bible study designed for men will explore how these "prohibitive" laws actually are our dear friends, intended to make life richer and more fulfilling. Through contemporary illustrations and personal experience, we'll explore how these timeless laws give us an appetite for divine excellence. Pastor Earl…

Stitched with Love

The new "Faith with Fabrics" class teaches charity with love Previous Next It's late afternoon on a sunny Wednesday, and eight girls excitedly bounce up to the second floor, grab a snack and uncover their sewing machines. Among scissors, needles, thread and fabric, they set out to finish yet another sewing project. “One for me, one for someone else!” they exclaim. Although often, it’s “one project for someone else, then another project for someone else, then another…” They are part of the new class “Faith with Fabrics” under the direction of Judy Mischke. The class, designed for children in grades…

Advent Study Begins Wednesday, Dec. 5

Join us for the Advent study, "Christmas is Not Your Birthday" beginning Wednesday, Dec. 5. There will be two class times available: noon and 5:00 p.m. Every year, we say we’re going to cut back, simplify, and have a family Christmas that focuses on the real reason for the season—Jesus. But every year, advertisements beckon, the children plead, and it seems easier just to indulge our wants and whims. Overspending, overeating, materialism, and busyness rob us of our peace and joy and rob Jesus of his rightful role as the center of our celebration. This Christmas, cut through the hype…

Fan? Or Follower? New Bible Study Begins Oct. 8

Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus Christ issued a compelling and challenging invitation: “Follow Me.”  Jesus is not interested in mere fans. He doesn't want enthusiastic admirers.  He wants completely committed followers.  Built around the engaging approach of Kyle Idleman, Teaching Pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY, this one of a kind small group study examines what it means to deny one’s self and truly follow Jesus. Join us for the "Not a Fan" bible study beginning Monday, Oct. 8 at 6:00 p.m. in Room 110. This is not a conventional small group experience. It is a cinematic journey, a…
