Classes

During the school year 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.

thessalonians

1 & 2 Thessalonians

Paul wrote 1 & 2 Thessalonians to encourage the people of Thessalonica to hold on to the hope of the Gospel. This message is still true today. The hope we have in Christ and in His promises should determine how we live our life. When faced with opposition, we are to live in faith, hope and love and when we do this it produces a counter-cultural and holy way of life. Watch and/or listen to these teachings to be encouraged in living a holy life.
No registration is necessary. This study will be streamed online through Facebook and on the Christ’s Church YouTube channel. A podcast of these classes will also be available. Videos will be released on Wednesday evenings beginning September 16. 

  • Taught by Elijah Dally & Jim Dalrymple
  • Virtual Class, Podcast released Wednesday at 5:00am, videos released at 6:30pm on Wednesdays
  • Class Length: 10 weeks

Do you ever feel helpless, overwhelmed or incapable of making a difference in the kingdom of God? These thoughts are not from God and in this study through the book of Philippians, you’ll learn to recognize these thoughts and stop the downward spiral. When our minds are submitted to Christ, His promises will fill our thoughts and in turn, transform our emotions, outlook and even our circumstances.
