Fall 2022 Classes

Making decisions in life with eternity in mind and God’s glory as the goal requires much wisdom. This fall we invite you to join us as we look at selected passages from the book of Proverbs in how to live a life of wisdom.  God has given us a treasure trove of practical guidelines for our daily lives in the book of Proverbs. R. C. Sproul states, “Proverbs gives us real, concrete advice that comes from the mind of God Himself. If we want wisdom, this is the fountain from which to drink.” So come join us for ancient wisdom that is still relevant today and has significance for our lives to come.
We have been told, “All you need is love…” While this statement is misguided and overly simplistic, it
does hit upon a profound truth: having everything but love equates to nothing. Many turn to 1 Corinthians 13 as the needed guide to love, and this is very wise as God’s Word opens to us the necessity, nature, and never-ending aspects of love. The key to 1 Corinthians 13 is to see how Jesus fulfills every aspect of love, being Love Himself, and how sweetly He has loved us even when we fail to live up to the love chapter.
Back to the Basics on Marriage is intended for married couples or engaged couples to dig in deeper on core biblical essentials for a healthy, God honoring marriage. This class will encourage and challenge those who are married to continue pursuing the Lord and growing together with the understanding that your marriage is intended to bring glory to God. The class will also help engaged couples to talk through some important details and gain better understanding of what a God honoring marriage should look like.
This class will examine other beliefs that we may encounter. Our purpose in doing this is to discover what other people believe (Hinduism, Catholicism, Lutheran, Methodist, Sikhism, Legalists, etc…) – how do they differ from what we believe – are they believers – and how do we best share the gospel with or minister to them. We will have a variety of speakers and plenty of opportunities for discussion. Please join us if you have people in other religions around you and you are unsure how to best help them.

A Chronological Study of the Life of Christ

2 Tim. 2:2 Women's Class - Room A211
Women of all ages are invited to study with us as we rejoice in the finished work of Christ. We have printed lessons that take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Prayer is a big part of our class and we meet via Zoom on Thursdays so we can pray for each other. If something comes up in between, we have two members who take care of sending out email requests.
