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.

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.

Sticky Faith
Fuller Youth Institute Executive Director Dr. Kara E. Powell and youth expert Chap Clark empower parents with positive and practical ideas to nurture within their kids a living, loving faith that lasts a lifetime.

Nearly every Christian parent in America would give anything to find a viable resource for developing within their kids a deep, dynamic faith that “sticks” long term. Sticky Faith delivers. Research shows that almost half of graduating high school seniors struggle deeply with their faith. Recognizing the ramifications of that statistic, the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) conducted the “College Transition Project” in an effort to identify the relationships and best practices that can set young people on a trajectory of lifelong faith and service. Based on FYI findings, this easy-to-read guide presents both a compelling rationale and a powerful strategy to show parents how to actively encourage their children’s spiritual growth so that it will stick to them into adulthood and empower them to develop a living, lasting faith. Written by authors known for the integrity of their research and the intensity of their passion for young people, Sticky Faith is geared to spark a movement that empowers adults to develop robust and long-term faith in kids of all ages.

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.

Book of Luke (Part 1)
The Gospel of Luke is a walk through events in Jesus’ life. Watch how the Son of Man, the Savior, enters the homes of the suffering, visits tax collectors, and dines with sinners. Learn from His words, His walk, and his relationships with common people what it really means “to follow Him.” Hear what Jesus taught about the kingdom of God and how you, today, can be prepared for the difficult times ahead and to stand before the Son of Man. The study features the Inductive Bible Study Method. Rhonda Alstott and Marcia Latimer are the facilitators.

First Corinthians
Living Love When We Disagree
Relationships are messy. Sometimes we struggle to get along, especially when there is disagreement. Often we find ourselves divided–even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?
 
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing. The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today, yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ. In this six-week study we will explore Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions–whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We’ll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we’ll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.

Beliefs and Practices – 
Biblical Grace, Truth, and the LGBTQ+ Community
 
Join Pastor Tony as he explores the key Scriptures that concern same-sex practices. What is sinful? What is holy? How does Scripture distinguish between identity and behavior? How do we respond with the character of Christ? How much grace do we extend? How do we hold to the truth?
