    This Quarter: We will be continuing through the book The Search For Significance. There are times in all of our lives where we struggle with issues such as perfectionism, feelings of inferiority, and just not knowing what to with our lives.

  • No Greater Joy

    Fellowship Hall

    Teacher: Marcus Yeatts

    Class Overview: This class is devoted to encouraging one another as parents.  Our class name comes from 3 John 1:4 "I have no greater joy than to know that my children are walking in the truth."  We have parents with kids from newborns to college age and our primary focus is on raising kids who walk in the truth.   

     

    This Quarter: This winter we will be finishing our study of the book, A Practical Guide to Culture by Brett Kunkle and John Stonestreet.  We will discuss how to practically raise our kids in the culture in which we live.  The book covers why culture matters, some specific issues that we face as Christians in our current American culture (sexuality, addiction, entertainment), and how to influence culture as Christians.  During the winter, we will be finishing discussing some of the issues we face in our culture, and we will move on to the final section on influencing the culture as Christians.

     



  • 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: Ever wonder how an event such as the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, is to impact our lives today?  How does that sacrifice change our lives?  How does the Gospel impact my daily life, my marriage and family, and my friends? Should Jesus and the Gospel influence what I listen to, what I read, my

    recreation and my use of social media?  And if so - how?  Using material from

    David Platt's Secret Church: The Cross and Everyday Life, we will explore and discuss how one man's death 2000 years ago has come to shape how we live today.

     

         

      

  • 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: Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well—we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the Gospel into the darkened world.  By using a short video clip by J.D. Greear, this will be the springboard for our interactive discussion on the book of Ephesians.

       


  • Ambassadors

    Room 005 (Basement)

    Teacher: Steve park

    Class Overview: Varying ages from young adult through retirement age regularly attend the Ambassador class each Sunday. They enjoy spending time together in class as well as outside the class at regularly scheduled social events.

  • Berachah

    Room 101

    Teacher: Danny Horton and Jerry Stern

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


    This Quarter: For the winter quarter, the Berachah Class will continue its study of the New Testament book of Philippians. The Apostle Paul, who authored this book, experienced a great many hardships in his life. But yet, he still was able to write these words: “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Phil. 4:4). As we make our way through this four-chapter book, we will investigate how Paul was able to remain content in the midst of all different types of circumstances. And we also will explore how that translates to the difficult and challenging situations each of us face.
