  • Esther: Agent of God--In the Right Place, At the Right Time

    Led by Pastor Snow

    Participants in this Bible Class will journey with Pastor Snow through the Old Testament book of Esther.

    In this brief historical account, readers are introduced to the chief actors of a drama which is full of suspense and sudden reversals. Through the life of Esther, we see God’s divine providence. His guiding hand is clearly present in this book, in the lives of His Old Testament people, just as He is in our lives, today!

    Class participants will review the plot to liquidate the Jews; the counterplot to save them; God’s deliverance and “the Peace which passes all understanding” for His people under God-fearing leaders.

    Together, we’ll see the wisdom of God in every circumstance of our lives and we’ll make specific applications of this Old Testament book 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!

  • John, Part 5: The Life of Christ

    Led by Dr. Lionel Alford 

    This is a class you can pick up at any time: a study of the Gospel of John through the Greek.  The Gospel of John is a great piece of Greek historical literature and 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 5, 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 6 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" (Continued)

    Led by Kris Osler

Each session is valuable for a one-time attendee or a regular and we’re happy to share our books! All ladies are welcome!

  • Young Adults

    Led by Aaron Zimmerman

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

    The young adults will continue studying Hebrews and will be transitioning to the book of James. These two books clearly express the Good News of salvation won for us by Christ as a free gift, while also expressing the seriousness of sin and the importance of living a different life as a result of our following Jesus.  Join us as we study these letters and use them as encouragement to share the gospel with the world.
