Classes

We offer classes, support groups and Bible studies on Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in order to give you an opportunity to learn and apply the truths of the Bible. Whether it’s a Bible study of a particular passage or book, a class about spiritual disciplines or a group that helps people find freedom from pain and suffering, there is always a chance for you to connect and grow with us.

class-boundaries

Boundaries

Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. Do you have trouble saying no? Can you set limits and still be a loving person? Are you in control of your life? Do people take advantage of you? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer biblically based answers to these tough questions as they show us to set healthy boundaries with our parents, our spouses, our children, our friends and even ourselves.

Entrusted & Armor Of God – Women’s Bible Study

This semester we will begin with Entrusted by Beth Moore and finish with The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer.

Entrusted – In this new Bible study by Beth Moore, we will look at the words of 2 Timothy. Paul encouraged Timothy to not be ashamed to fulfill God’s call on his life and in this study; Beth Moore will challenge you to do the same. God has a plan for your life.

Armor of God – All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you unseen and unheard but felt throughout every aspect of your life. This is the enemy’s plan; to catch you unaware and unarmed. His plan fails when we are prepared for the battle.

class-foundations-of-our-beliefs

Foundations Of Our Beliefs: Genesis 12-50

We leave Genesis 1-11 with the tragic message that sin has all but ruined God’s good plans for the world, so we wonder what God will do next to bring his promised blessing to reality. Genesis 12-50 builds on that foundation by telling us the story of Abraham and his descendants. These stories show how God will bring about his good purposes in spite of human foolishness and sin. What is God doing about the pain and suffering in our world? Is God capable of redemption? How do we factor into his plans? What does faith look like in real life? We discover biblical answers to these questions as we patiently examine Genesis 12-50.

What Did You Expect? Redeeming The Realities Of Marriage

Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world but many people enter marriage with far different expectations. These unrealistic expectations often leave you unprepared to handle the realities of day-to-day life. This study looks at six different commitments that give shape and momentum to develop a life-style of a thriving, grace-based marriage in all circumstances and seasons of your relationship.
