The 7 Experiment
Do you feel trapped in the machine of excess? Jen Hatmaker once considered herself unmotivated by the lure of prosperity, but upon being called “rich” by an undeniably poor child, evidence to the contrary mounted, and a social experiment turned spiritual journey was born. 7 is the true story of how Jen took seven months, identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence. So, what’s the payoff from living a deeply reduced life? Its the discovery of a greatly increased God-a call toward Christ-like simplicity and generosity. Rhonda Alstott, Kelly Hessig, and Nicki Prince are the facilitators.

MacArthur Bible Studies

The Gospel of Mark, more than any other Gospel, gives us precious glimpses into Christ’s humanity. Jesus amazes his followers, those in the past as well as his disciples today, as He teaches, heals, performs miracles, casts out demons, and raises the dead. Mark’s account shows Christ using every opportunity, despite resentment and persecution from his enemies, to show God’s awesome power. Through Mark’s writings, we follow Jesus’ pain, joy, and fervent dedication as he walks the earth, touches lives, and ultimately conquers sin and death through his crucifixion and resurrection. Ron Van Tyle is the facilitator.

Think Differently
Why do we lose our temper? Why do we tend to hurt those we care for most? How do families find themselves broken? Beyond behaviors and deeper than attitudes, thinking determines outcome more than anything else. The Book of Romans challenges us to be no longer conformed to the patterns of the world but rather to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.

This Bible study by James MacDonald identifies strongholds, examines how they came to be, and offers a biblical path toward repentance and the renewing of their minds. God offers our only hope for victory.   With Him we can think differently. The facilitators are Bill Sabala and Tom Hammack.

The Epic of Eden

Does your knowledge of the Old Testament feel like a grab bag of people, books, events, and ideas? In this study, Dr. Sandra Richter clearly and powerfully communicates a history of God’s redeeming grace, weaving together a story that runs from the Garden of Eden to the garden of the New Jerusalem. Through text and video teaching, Dr. Richter uses this 12-week study to bring a new dimension to the history of the ancient Near East. Legendary Bible stories take on new life as Dr. Richter clearly articulates their part of a larger pattern, revealing an even deeper significance for the tales individually. Bill Amerson and Lois Engebretson are the facilitators.

The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans
Stressing the need for mutual respect, trust, and encouragement, Josh Shipp identifies three key mindsets crucial to understanding teens. He breaks down the distinct phases of teenage life, examining the challenges at each phase,and offers revelatory stories that take us deep inside the teen brain. Written in Shipp’s playful but authoritative voice, The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans lays out unflinchingly practical ways to make a difference in a teen’s life. As Shipp reminds us, raising a respectable adult comes down to investing in teens and giving them the boundaries, time, and support they need to thrive. This study is being offered by the Youth Parent Support Group in order to help connect parents of teens to one another. Doug and Tracy Burbrink are the facilitators.

Who Am I?
The purpose of the Who Am I? class is to assist Christians in understanding who God has created them to be for His glory and His purposes. God has given every Christian specific abilities to enable them to assist in the work of building up Christ’s Kingdom. This work is always focused on people – their salvation, spiritual growth and well-being as believers in Christ.
The class strives to answer the question, “Who am I?” in terms of how God has created you to live and function with other people to help build up Christ’s Kingdom on earth.
You are a whole person in Christ. God has given you spiritual gifts, natural gifts/talents and a temperament to enable you to fulfill His purposes for your life on this earth. Paul Bryan is the facilitator.
