Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 7:00AM IHOP Restaurant, 4253 Oceanside Blvd., Oceanside Lee Gillogly

The thrilling book of the Prophet Daniel was written about 530 BC to the Jewish exiles in Babylonia.  It shows heroism, remaining true to God under extreme conditions, and God’s protection over His faithful ones.

Experiencing God

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 10:00AM Rooms 5 & 6, Church Jerry Carey

God is inviting you to experience Him in an intimate love relationship through which He reveals to you His will, His ways, and His work.  Through the biblical principles in this course, God can teach you how to know when He is speaking to you; recognize His activity around you; adjust your life to Him and His ways; identify what He wants to do through you; and respond to His activity in your life.

The Book of Hebrews

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 10:00AM Lamascus Home Rollin Lojeske

The author of Hebrews addresses the problem early Jewish believers had with legalism by contrasting the Old and New Covenants, brilliantly showing that Christ is higher than any Old Testament character, priest, ritual, or sacrifice.  Because of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, He is the perfect sacrifice and our own High Priest.  And He has given all believers unfettered access to God!

Finding Hope

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Smith 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?

Exodus Experiment

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Rooms 5 & 6, Church Gil Maza

The Place of the Tabernacle (Church) in the life of the Believer.  In this third and final segment of our trek through Exodus, we answer the question once for all.  Do you have to go to church to be a good Christian?  Come and find out.

Discovering the Bible (4-Week Church-wide Study - Begins January 10, 2018)

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

The Bible is the all-time best seller since the beginning of printing.  It has produced passionate controversy for centuries.  What is the book that is like none other in the history of the world?  Where did it come from?  What does it consist of?  Does it still speak to us today?  Come join us and find out as we delve into Discovering the Bible, a 4-week study of the Old & New Testaments.

The Book of Ephesians (Begins February 7, 2018)

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

God knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word.  The book Ephesians is a Survival Manual – it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ.  Join us for this encouraging video study that empowers believers for daily living.

The Good & Beautiful Life (Young Marrieds & Parents of Young Children Group) (Begins February 7, 2018)

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

Many of us have bought into false notions of happiness and success, but these self-centered decisions lead us further into the vices that cause ruin: anger, lust, lying worry and judging. Eventually we find ourselves living a beautifully packaged life of self-destruction.  Following the Sermon on the Mount, The Good and Beautiful Life guides us to look behind these character flaws and replace our false beliefs with Jesus’ narratives about life in the kingdom of God.

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

Day / Time Location Leader
