    Led by Pastor Myers

    God’s Word tells us to “always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you for the reason for the hope we have in Jesus.” Each week we will look at a contemporary issue (critical theory, gender issues, abortion, assisted suicide, family, etc.) and see what God’s Word says in our response to the world.

  • Is Genesis History?--Biblical Creationism

    Led by Pastor Snow

    Having recently concluded the very interesting preaching series entitled, “God Questions,” this Bible study will “dive deeper” into the question of Creation. One of the best ways to learn more about the science of Creation and the Flood is to explore a path through the scientific, historical and Biblical evidence.

    Participants in this Bible Class will journey with Pastor Snow through an in-depth look at what the Biblical writers (and science) tell us about Creation, Adam and Eve and the Flood. (Also: Rocks and Fossils; Life and Design; the Bible and Stars.)

    Jesus, Himself, was there at the beginning, forming everything according to His purpose. Genesis is therefore central to the work of Jesus. Our prayer and goal is that by the end of this study, you will better understand how the first chapters of Genesis are related to God’s plan of salvation.

    You will also be able to make specific applications to your faith and life today.

    Be sure to join us in the Fellowship Hall and bring your own Bibles each week so that you can highlight and make notes for your own future reference and study!

    Sunday Mornings 9:45-10:45 am in the Fellowship Hall

  • Torah- The First Five Books of the Bible

    Led by Dr. Lionel Alford 

    Moses wrote Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy; these are the books the Jews call Torah.  Torah is the basis for the Law of God.  It impacts our understanding of the Gospel and is the focus of nearly all Jewish culture and traditions.  Torah reveals and defines the covenants of God and sets the stage for salvation in Christ.  We will look at Hebrew language, culture, history, literature, and geography in terms of the Torah.  We will learn the basis for our historical understanding of the Torah as well as how other works in antiquity support the historical accuracy of it. This session we will be focusing on the Tabernacle and Temple.

    Sunday Mornings 9:45-10:45 am in the School Library
  • Women's Bible Study, “Enough for Now."

    Led by Kris Osler

    This class uses the book Enough for Now by Sharla Fritz for its weekly studies. This book explores the idea of “enough” through the study of Scripture—specifically the parable of the rich fool; personal stories; and practical exercises. Over the course of the lessons, women will discover how to escape the insatiable quest for more by finding their “enough” in God.

    Sunday Mornings at 9:45 in the Art Room
  • Middle School Bible Class

    Sunday Mornings 9:45-10:45 am in the Gym

    On Wednesday nights from 7:00—8:30 p.m., our High School students meet in the Lighthouse and spend time in praise and worship, group building, fellowship, prayer and study. We are currently studying the Fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5. As we connect with each other and Christ, we are challenged to live by the Spirit and not in our sinful flesh.

    **Please check Life at Holy Cross or the Student Ministry Webpage for dates and changes. 

    Wednesday Nights 7:00-8:30 in The Lighthouse
  • Young Adults

    Led by Aaron Zimmerman

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

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

    Sunday Mornings 9:45-10:45 am in the Parlor
