Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Lewis Home Garry Hodges

No one wants to hear the words, “There is no hope.”  None of us wants to be in the situation of saying, “I feel hopeless.”  Jesus said, I”n this world you have tribulation.”  In this study, we will search the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation to find answers to many questions such as: What is hope?  Is hoping the same as wishing?  Why hope?  Does everyone always hope?

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:00PM Room 4, Church Michael Dailey

Are you ready for a change?  On your journey through this study, you will find the answers to 3 of life’s most important questions:  Why am I alive?  Does my life matter?  What on earth am I here for?  Living out the purpose you were created for moves you beyond mere survival and success to a life of significance – the life you were meant to live.  Knowing your life purpose brings understanding, simplification, and focus to life, increases motivation, and prepares you for eternity.


Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:00PM Room 11, Church Mike Openshaw

Too often Christians experience a changed mind about God, or even a changed heart toward God, without having a changed life with God.  Where is the breakdown between belief and discipleship?  Why isn’t the transformative power of the gospel more apparent in the daily workings of our lives?  The gospel is about change in our lives today, not just our eternal destiny.  The Apprentice Series helps Christians develop a robust discipleship by helping them understand who God is, what it means to be a Christian and what it means to live in community as a part of God’s kingdom.

The Book of Acts (RAD Young Adults Group, ages 18-30)

This will be a challenging and encouraging book for all of us as we look at the glory of Christ and rely on His Spirit.
