    This summer, in our High School Bible Class, we will study The Case for Christ. Skeptics dismiss the Jesus of the Gospels by claiming there is no evidence. Lee Strobel disagrees. In The Case for Christ study, he searches out the truth to determine if there is enough evidence to claim that Jesus of Nazareth really is the son of God. Join us at 9:45 on Sunday mornings in the Lighthouse.

  • Stepping Out: To A Life On The Edge Part 2

    Led by Kris Osler
    There you are at the very edge of the diving board. Will you take that leap? Will you stand there, paralyzed by fear? Or will you turn around and crawl all the way back on your hands and knees? God calls each of us to a unique purpose. On our own, we fall and sink like lead. It’s only because Jesus offers guidance and strength that we can step out of our comfort zone and serve Him in whatever capacity we are called to serve. We can trust Him. Jesus steps in, so we can step out!

  • Read Every Word of the Bible

    Led by Carl Nelson
    This study will take you through every word in the Bible. If you have never read the whole Bible, this is a good opportunity to do so in a class setting with others that offers mutual support and group discussion on each weeks readings. For those who have already read the whole Bible, this will be a good opportunity to share reading it again with others in the class. Reading every word is a one year plan. But feel free to choose attending any given quarter and finish on your own using the reading schedule provided for the class.

  • Hebrews, Part 6: Jesus The High Priest

    Led by Dr. Lionel Alford
    Hebrews is a great piece of Greek historical literature that is a primary source document for our understanding of the ideas of the early church. Hebrews is a document often found in early sources with and without Paul’s letters. Paul’s letters are always found together. The fact that Hebrews sometimes isn’t means it is not necessarily and likely not written by Paul. Hebrews is a Greek document written by a man from the Alexandrian Hebrew culture who was an observant Jew. In Hebrews part 6, we will investigate the Greek basis for the book and make an extensive cultural, social, linguistic, and historical study of it. This study will take us through the continuation of the Greek logical argument presented by the author of Hebrews, and we will see if we can determine who the writer(s) are and who the audience is. Because of the format of this class, new members are welcome and can easily catch up to the current subject matter.

  • Christianity and the Competition DVD-Based

    Hosted by Pastor Snow

    Participants in this Bible Class will watch brief video segments of “Christianity and the Competition” and then compare and contrast the teachings of the Christian faith with that of other religions.

    Learning about other religions is a great way to strengthen our own Christian faith! The Reverend Dr. Paul Maier, a frequent visitor and presenter here at Holy Cross, does a wonderful job, via DVD presentations, of high-lighting the teachings of other religions and then comparing them to the truths of the Bible and Christianity.

    Be sure to bring your own Bibles each week so that you can highlight and make notes for your own future reference and study! The Rev. Dr. Paul Maier, Best-Selling author and scholar, has been a frequent guest, preacher and Bible Class leader here at Holy Cross. He was with us most recently in early November 2017 to celebrate our Holy Cross 75th Anniversary. Come and enjoy, once again, the insights he, and many others, have to share with us!
