OVERCOMING EMOTIONS THAT DESTROY
Room 219 | Jan 27 - Mar 17
A study designed to help men process their anger, fears and hurts in a Christ Centered setting. This class provides an opportunity for men to share their emotions in safe community and apply biblical precepts to handle them God’s way. We'll look at identifying any negative beliefs that hold us back and replace them with God’s Truth. The study uses materials from Chip’s teaching and other experts in this area.
Sundays @ 8AM

Improv is an adult Bible study class that encourages questions and comments as we study verse-by verse, chapter by chapter in God's Word. We are currently studying the book of Ecclesiastes, and will begin 1 Samuel and 1 Kings in October. We typically alternate our studies between the Old and New Testament. We have a rotating team of teachers, all of whom prepare using multiple commentaries written by well known, conservative Bible scholars. Throughout the year we meet for times of fellowship, including picnics and small group dinners/lunches. We add new members all the time, so please join us!
MEN ON THE MOVE
Men's Bible Study - Looking for fellowship with other men where you can be the "real" you? Change your discouragement into joy. Regardless of where you are in life or spiritual maturity, you will fit right in!
Sundays @ 11:15AM
Gain a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of God's Word (content, context, message, relevance, and meaning for 21st century followers). We examine a single book of the Bible at a time, verse-by-verse (this year the Acts of the Apostles). Class includes live and/or multimedia teaching, sharing of blessings and concerns, prayer and refreshments.
"But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith." – 1 Timothy 1:5
Our class is structured around a Bible lesson followed by a prayer time. We typically go through Bible studies of books of the Bible, and we also occasionally have guest mission speakers. Following the lesson, we divide into women and men’s groups to pray and encourage each other. Come experience our genuine care and community. We welcome all ages, middle school to adult.
FOCUS — GROWING TO MATURITY IN CHRIST
This class is for those who seek fellowship, a community of prayer support, and a desire to mature in their faith through an in-depth, bible study experience. The class begins with a time of fellowship and prayer and concludes with a verse by verse study of one of the 66 books of the Bible. We are currently completing our study of Galatians, and will then start a study of Judges — a study in which we will meet many heroes of faith: Othniel, Gideon, Samson, Shamgar, Deborah, Jephthah, Ehud...flawed individuals who answered God’s call to deliver the Israelites in sometimes dramatic form. The book includes many of the most graphic, violent, and disturbing scenes in all Scripture—some in the name of righteousness, others in the name of evil. Each class challenges us to apply what we learned for life change, as we seek God and seek to live as R12 Christians.
All ages (couples, as well as singles) will experience a warm welcome as we enjoy a time of light refreshment, prayer, worship in song and study. Expository as well as topical teaching is offered and class participation is encouraged. This year's study is in the book 1 John. You'll also find times of fellowship, service, and activities.

Everyone wants to be happy. Everybody is on a happiness quest. For many, happiness is measured in moments. Experiences. It’s elusive. Unsustainable.
What about you? What makes you happy? Not sure? Andy is. In this remarkable 6-part study, he reveals what makes you happy. Andy explores the three things all happy people have in common, and goes on to describe how these three things can be realities for you as well.
