Adults

Traditionally known as the most effective form of Christian education, Sunday School classes are also the backbone of our congregation’s strength.  In these small group settings, lifelong friendships and genuine Christian fellowship develop and mature.  It is common for class members to gather for food and fellowship prior to class.

“Walk as Jesus Walked:” This five-session, video-based small group Bible study by noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan helps you experience how the disciples translated Jesus’ call to passionate discipleship into language and imagery the Roman culture already understood. Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God’s Word to life with astounding relevance.

“The Women of Christmas:” A sacred season is about to unfold for three women whose hearts belong to God. Elizabeth is barren, yet her trust in God remains fertile.

Prepare for the Savior to enter your heart, your mind, and your life in a vibrant new way this season, as Liz unwraps each verse with tender care.

Tuesday Evening Study

6:30pm to 8pm
Conference Room, North Campus

Begins September 9th
Covenant: The Biblical concept of Covenant speaks to an enduring commitment between God and God’s fruitful people. It’s a promise—to live in a loving relationship with and for each other. So the purpose of Covenant Bible study is to engage participants in conversations about this unique and special relationship—as well as our relationships with each other and the world around us—as we study the Bible together. Covenant is based on the understanding that it is through community—through shared reflection and engagement—that we can best discover the Bible’s transformative power. Covenant differs from other Bible studies as it emphasizes the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying pattern throughout the Bible. It covers both Old and New Testaments—discussing books from each in a way that shows the interconnectedness of Scripture as a whole.

Sunday Evening Study

5:30pm to 7pm
Conference Room, North Campus

Based on the book, Heaven is for Real, this study will encourage us to picture Heaven the way Scripture describes it—a bright, vibrant, and physical New Earth, free from suffering and death, brimming with Christ’s presence, wondrous natural beauty and the richness of Heaven’s nature as God intended it.
