The Word Made Flesh

Paul Hamline, Keith Phillips, & Greg Scheideman- Activity Center
The beloved apostle John, writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, gives this as the purpose statement of his gospel account.   We will remind our hearts from scripture that the Word was with God, was God, and that all things came into being through Him.  He is the Light of the world.  He has explained the Father.  He is the Word made flesh.  Join us as we behold His glory as it is revealed in this glorious gospel.

Union with Christ

James Henrich, Howard Bennet, & Ross Riggan - Room 208-210
Join us as we explore the deep riches, resources, and realities that are ours by being in Christ. It does not matter where you find yourself today and in which groups your identity places you. The only identity of eternal value is the identity of Jesus Christ. Belonging to Him, being found in Him, living life with power in Him is all that really matters. The Bible many times makes reference directly and indirectly to the reality of being in Christ. There are so many benefits and blessings by being in Christ; it should be the daily meditation of every believer. Come take a deep breath of the freedom and peace in knowing the most important thing about you as a believer is that you are in Christ!

American Gospel: Cultural Distortions of Biblical Christianity

Lawson Hembree and Mike Meadors - Room 202-204
As Christians, we must be on guard against cultural distortions of biblical Christianity. In our American culture, the ideals of consumerism, pragmatism, self-sufficiency, individualism, positive thinking, personal prosperity, social justice, and nationalism have crept into too many churches and diluted the gospel into nothing more than moralism. Michael Horton has said, "A moralistic religion of self-salvation is our default setting as fallen creatures. If we are not explicitly and regularly taught out of it, we will always turn the message of God's rescue into a message of self-help." This class will help identify these distortions so that we might uphold and proclaim the unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ.

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.
