SUNDAYS

BYKOTA CLASS

Day / Time Location Leader
Sunday, 11:30AM Conference Call Kelly Brown

Current Study:  The Book of Job

Job is possibly one of the oldest books in the world. God saw fit to preserve this great book through the millennia so that we can, even today, ponder some of the great questions man has asked and, even today, be comforted, as Job ultimately was, in the sovereignty of the Lord God Almighty. Job is not only a great spiritual book, it is also great literature. It is a great drama played out on the stage of real life by “actors” who speak some of the most beautiful and grand lines to be found anywhere, in or outside of the Bible.

MONDAYS

GriefShare Support Group

Day / Time Location Leader
Monday, 6:30PM Meet Online Allie Garcia, Brenda McGill & Mark Cassidy

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now.  If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

GriefShare support groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  For more information or to register, click here.  Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

Video seminar with experts

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects.  These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support group discussion with focus

After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal study and reflection

During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling.  Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Get Out of Your Head (Ladies' Group) Begins February 22, 2021

Day / Time Location Leader
Monday, 6:30PM Online Michaela Lozano

Are your thoughts holding you captive? We don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns. God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. We’ll be diving into Philippians to learn how we can equip ourselves to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. When we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways.  This study is geared towards 18-40 year old women.

TUESDAYS

Revelation Decoded

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Meet Online Gil Maza

Confused by the endless speculation about the End Times?  Frustrated at how often predictions about the rapture, the Antichrist, and the mark of the Beast have failed decade after decade, even by some of the most popular Bible teachers?  Is it even possible to actually understand the Words of Jesus as revealed to the Apostle John?  The answer is YES.  Join us as we legitimately “decode” Revelation once and for all.

WEDNESDAYS

Be Alert: Beware of the Religious Impostors (Meet Year Round)

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 5:30PM Church Patio Scott Hoerner

RAD (Repent.Arise.Disciple) This group desires to glorify God through studying the Bible and authentic fellowship.

Our current study is in a book by Warren Wiersbe “Be Alert: Beware of the Religious Impostors”, a study in 2 Peter, 2 & 3 John, and Jude.  The world is filled with counterfeits.  And the church is not immune, as false ideas and doctrines can infect believers and congregations.  So when it comes to spiritual teachers, messages, and movements, how can we tell fact from fiction?  The answers are found in 2 Peter, 2 & 3 John, and Jude, where the apostles provide practical insights for discerning truth. 

Acts: Seeing God's Power in Action

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Conference Call Tim Dixon

Luke depicts the birth and growth of the early church through about thirty-three years, almost two generations.  He begins with the ascension of Christ and ends with the imprisonment of Paul in Rome.  Along the way he describes the earliest days of the church in Jerusalem, the church’s beginning efforts to reach beyond the Jewish community, and three missionary journeys across Asia Minor and into Greece.  In this study of the early Church Luke introduces ninety-five people, sixty-two of whom are not mentioned elsewhere in the New Testament.
