    ROMANS: LIVE BY FAITH

    Led by Pastor Myers

    Martin Luther calls it, “the chief part of the New Testament; truly the purest Gospel. It is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but also that he should occupy himself with it every day, as the daily bread of the soul. We can never read it or ponder over it too much; for the more we deal with it, the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes.” Join us each Saturday at 4:45 for an in-depth study of this precious book.

    Saturday evening from 4:45-5:45pm in the Parlor

  • The Screwtape Letters: A Bible Study Based on the Classic and Popular Book by C. S. Lewis

    Led by Pastor Snow

    This Bible study of The Screwtape Letters will take participants on a journey through C. S. Lewis’ classic work as we expand upon the thoughts found in each letter and the unique insight into the battles being waged in the spiritual world.

    The Screwtape Letters proved to be very helpful to thousands during the confusion of WWII and is equally valuable for us in today’s culture of rapid change and confusion. Recognizing an enemy of truth and the Christian faith in the complex world around us is challenging, yet recognizing the subtle, shadowy whispers and twists of an enemy within is often even more difficult. But before there can be hope of progress in dealing with any enemy, that enemy must first be recognizable. Therefore, any assistance and wisdom in this recognition is genuinely welcomed. And this is what we will be doing in our study of The Screwtape Letters.

    Join our Bible Class journey with Pastor Snow as we add scripture to weigh in on the discussion and ask questions to bring out the twists and turns in the thoughts and emotions that we each experience. Together, we’ll see the wisdom of God in the circumstances of our lives and we’ll make specific applications to our modern-day situation, faith and life.

    Be sure to bring your own Bibles each week so that you can highlight and make notes for your own future reference and study!

    Sunday Mornings 9:30-10:30 am in the Worship Center

  • John, Part 3: The Life of Christ

    Led by Dr. Lionel Alford 

    The Gospel of John is a great piece of Greek historical literature that is a primary source document for our understanding of the life and words of Christ.  John is one of the four extant and accepted Gospels—Good News.  It is a Greek document written by John the Apostle, a man from the Hebrew culture who was an observant Jew and a disciple of Christ.  In the overview of the Gospels we discovered that John is a thesis and logical argument—a logos to telos that was resolved through the signs followed by the resurrection of Christ.  In John part 3, we will continue with the Greek basis for the Gospel and then make an extensive cultural, social, linguistic, and historical study of it.  This will set us up for John part 4 where we will do the same through the rest of the year to see more of the life of Christ.  This is a class you can pick up at any time to discover more and more about Greek, the early church, and the person of Christ.

    Sunday Mornings 9:30-10:30 am in the 8th Grade Classroom
  • Women's Bible Study, “Love Rules: A Study of the Ten Commandments"

    Led by Kris Osler

The Women’s Bible study will be continuing this study by Christina Hergenrader, where we will discuss these questions. Each session is valuable for a one-time attendee or a regular and we’re happy to share our books! All ladies are welcome!

    Led by Aaron Zimmerman

    This class is for young adults (in college through age 30).

    The young adults will continue studying a number of Paul’s epistles. Some of these letters rebuke, some encourage, and some praise the church, but they all clearly express the good news of salvation granted to both the Jews and gentiles through the blood of Christ on the cross. Join us as we study these letters and use them as an encouragement for ourselves to share this good news with others.
