The Basics of Bible Prophecy

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

Bible prophesy can be a playground for fanatics or it can be green pastures for disciples.

In the process, they supply answers to many intriguing questions about prophecy.

Revelation Decoded

Day / Time Location Leader
Tuesday, 6:30PM Church, Rooms 5 & 6 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 (Childcare provided for parents attending Wed. evening groups.)

The Book of Colossians

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

What we think about Jesus matters.  Our perception of Him shapes us—what we say, how we treat others, even what we think.  If we paint Jesus as any less than who He is as supreme over all creation and savior of the world, not only does our theology slip, but the working out of our faith also suffers. 

In this 8-session video series, Louie Giglio will take us through the book of Colossians to help us form a complete picture of Jesus.  What we believe about Him influences everything from our corporate worship to our relationships to our attitude toward sin.  Now alive in Christ, we can live a life worthy of God instead of falling back into the ways of the world. 

The Gospel of Matthew

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

What would it be like to be discipled by Jesus Himself?  What would He teach you about relationships, priorities, wealth and His coming kingdom?  What would you learn from His actions?  Matthew’s Gospel brings you face to face with Jesus as He calls, teaches and prepares His disciples.  As you work through this study in Matthew, you can become one of those chosen followers.

The Book of Romans

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Lewis Home Scott Hoerner

Join us as we study through the book of Romans.  This is a rich and deep book, that will build our faith on Christ, as it has for so many others throughout the years.  It is a simple, yet powerful time where God moves through His word, and we are constantly reminded that He is enough.

Forgotten God

Day / Time Location Leader
Wednesday, 6:30PM Smith Home Bob Balch

The Holy Spirit is the true source of the church’s power, yet Christians have ignored the Spirit far too long, and without Him, we operate in our own strength, only accomplishing human-sized results.  This Francis Chan video study offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives to accomplish God-sized results. 

Thursdays

James: Mercy Triumphs (Ladies Group) (Begins January 24, 2019)

Day / Time Location Leader
Thursday, 9:30AM Church, Room 4 Lura Black / Cathy White

James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic.  See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple.  Bible scholars compare James to the prophet Amos.  In other ways, James more closely resembles the Book of Proverbs than any other New Testament book.  Topics in this Beth Moore video study include: joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer.

Sermon-Based Study

Day / Time Location Leader
Thursday, 6:30PM Bruce Home (even months) & Marcon Home (odd months) Chris McKinney

A sermon-based study to help people better understand and act on Sunday messages while building relationships through Bible study and fellowship.
