    Class Overview: Young Adults (18-30 years of age) meet at the Kneppers' home each Sunday morning.

    This Quarter: This Spring, we will be using the study,  Intentional Parenting” by Doug Fields. Parents, you have the greatest influence on the life of your child. It’s never too late to become an intentional parent. We invite parents of any aged children to join our class as we strive to become intentional parents. Throughout the spring, we will also have  Q&A sessions with a panel of  “seasoned parents.”

     


  • No Greater Joy

    Fellowship Hall

    Teacher: Marcus Yeatts

    Class Overview: This class is committed to prayerfully supporting one another in the difficult but important job of parenting. We have parents of children of all ages in our class, and we hope share our successes and failures. We also study the Bible to see what God's Word has to say to us about a variety of topics.


    This Quarter: In the No Greater Joy class, we will be using a series by Craig Groeschel called "Margin" to study what it means to live with some margin in our lives.  We will focus on how this impacts us as parents and how we can create margin in our schedule, our finances and other areas. Following the Margin series, after Easter, we will begin a series entitled, “Have a New Kid by Friday.”  This series based on the book by Kevin Leman, is designed to help you change the ABC's of your child - Attitude, Behavior and Character. This series is geared towards kids of all ages, from preschool through high school.


  • Son Seekers

    Multipurpose Room

    Teachers: Pastor Brian McCall

    Class Overview: The Son Seekers Adult Bible Fellowship is made up of a group of individuals, studying topics relevant to today, in an effort to follow after Jesus Christ. We strive to study the word of God and, through His Holy Spirit, make application to our lives to live for Christ within our culture and circumstances. The format of the class is generally interactive in nature. The make-up of the class is not age specific. While some of the participants have younger and teenage children, many are “empty nesters”. This broad range of life experiences makes the Son Seekers appealing to a wide array of ages.


    This Quarter: Angels, demons and Satan are popular topics in American culture

    today.  Movies and television shows regarding evil spirits, zombies and angelic

    visitors are a great draw.  But what does the Bible say about them?  In this series, we will look at each of these spiritual beings.  We will study them not so much to know about them but the place of the church and believer as we function within their influence.  Were demons as prevalent in the Old Testament as in the New? 

    Are Christians today called to cast out and bind demons?  What about deliverance ministries?  Does each person or child have a guardian angel? What is the purpose of an angel?  Are demons passed on generationally or through curses?    

      

  • LampLighter

    Room 001 (BASEMENT)

    Teachers: Pastor Brant Leidy, Tom Schneider, & Brian Frederick

    Class Overview: This class is made up predominately of parents of youth and young adults.


    This Quarter: Join us for a study in the Gospel of Mark as Francis Chan chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem.  Following a short video clip, as a group we will discuss the life of Jesus as he travels with the ragged band of disciples.  We will learn from their life experiences.  We will trace the steps of Jesus throughout the land of Israel (via video) as we look at the major themes of this important

    Gospel.  Are you willing to join us on this journey?

    We are presently finishing up our study of Ephesians and then we will be looking into

    Philippians.  One of the key words in the book of Philippians that tells us the major theme is "Joy".

     


  • Berachah

    Room 101

    Teacher: Danny Horton

    Class Overview: The Berachah Class is generally comprised of men and women ages 55 and over.


    This Quarter: The study topics for the Berachah Class will be divided in two parts. For the month of March, the class will continue a series on the 12 minor prophets of the Old Testament, which is being taught by Jerry Stern. These prophets lived in an environment of self-gratification, idolatry and debauchery, and there is much we can learn as we apply God’s messages to the prophets to our own present-day culture.  Then in April, we will begin an in-depth look at The Lord’s Prayer, using the book A Layman Looks at the Lord’s Prayer by Phillip Keller as our guide. Keller takes a phrase-by-phrase look at this famous prayer and provides powerful insights into such diverse issues as forgiveness, temptation and defeating Satan.
