Classes Offered:

What is Man?
Taught by Pastor Randy Vawter
No book is required.
There is no cost for the class.

Our culture wants us to answer this question with behaviors,  desires, and emotions. But "The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?" (Jer 17:9). So we need a source outside ourselves to answer the question. Thankfully, God's provided the Bible to do just that. Using God's Word, we want to know what it means to be truly human and how that informs our understanding of a variety of current issues like race, sexuality, and death.

Shepherding a Child’s Heart
Moderated by Chris and Nancy Ervin
Workbook for taking notes provided.
Book is optional. Book cost is $5.

This study is about how to speak to the heart of your child. The things your child does and says flow from the heart. Luke 6:45 puts it this way, “out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.” Designed for parents with children of any age (and even grandparents), this insightful study provides perspectives and procedures for shepherding your child’s heart into the paths of life. Each week will include a DVD message by Tedd Tripp, plenty of opportunities for discussion and supplemental resources or exercises.

Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis
Moderated by Al Teed and Jonathan Albright
No book is required.
There is no cost for the class.

This class will be based on the video series “Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis” produced by the Institute for Creation Research (ICR.org). The series consists of twelve approximately 22 minute videos exploring the relationship of science and Scripture. The series supports the statement by the late Henry Morris that “The Biblical record, accepted in its natural and literal sense, gives the only scientific and satisfying account of the origin of all things.” Each session will include time for questions and discussion. This class is being repeated by because it was so well received in the fall of 2018.

Resolving Everyday Conflict
Moderated by Pastor Jim Efaw
Workbook is required. Cost: $10

So . . . when was the last time you blew up at a co-worker or your “problem child”? When was the last time you clammed up and refused to have a reconciling conversation with your spouse or a parent? How well do you handle conflict? Utilizing video case studies and simple, principle-driven teaching, this class will help you build a biblical framework for addressing and resolving conflict in every arena of life. Learning and practicing the biblical principles in this study will have an “instant impact” in your relationships. This is the same study we are doing on Sunday nights. 

Young and Old Guy’s Bible Study
Moderated by Dave Kahler and Carter Herling
Book is required. Cost: $15

Our culture is working overtime to redefine manhood. So . . . what is a godly man? This class is designed to get the “young guys” and the “old guys” in the same room with open Bibles discussing how to become the kind of man that pleases God and faithfully leads others. Chuck Swindoll described R. Kent Hughes’ modern classic on biblical manhood this way—“Over 250 pages devoted to the practical outworking of discipline on subjects like purity, marriage, prayer, the tongue, the mind, our work, leadership, ministry, and many, many more. I guarantee: Digest this book and you will bid the blahs farewell.”
