CLASS #1 – BIBLE STUDY INTENSIVE: ROMANS with Joanne Lodge

Podcast Available Online

The book of Romans: Paul the author of this “love letter,” was not always a servant of Jesus Christ.  He had persecuted the early believers until he met Jesus face to change. When he saw the light, his whole life changed. The knowledge he passes on to us he learned in the trenches.  He addressed this letter to the Christians in Rome, but his instructions reach down to speak to us.  His message changed the life of Martin Luther and John Wesley. We have discovered that the world is now bombarding us with all manner of what they call truth.  They are asking us to follow the course they are laying out before us.  Paul’s letter will not only reveal God’s truth, tell us what we need to believe, but also how to live out what we believe.  Talk about practical! I don’t know about you, but I need to know this.  Bring your Bible and join us on our journey as we learn how we fit into God’s plan.

CLASS #2 – CHRIST AND CULTURE with PASTOR KENT & STEVE POOLE

A multi-generational class with adults and students exploring how we follow Christ in today’s world. REGISTER

CLASS #3 – THE BIBLE PROJECT with DR ALAN CRANDALL and DR GARY SAGER

This lively seminar explores important themes in the Bible.  Each class begins with a 6-8 minute video and relevant scripture texts.  Then we open the floor to your responses, questions and “aha!” moments.  

“From page one to the final word, we believe the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus. This diverse collection of ancient books overflows with wisdom for our modern world. As we let the biblical story speak for itself, we believe the message of Jesus will transform individuals and entire communities.  Our videos help people experience the Bible in a way that is approachable, engaging, and transformative. We do this by showcasing the literary art of the Scriptures and tracing the themes found in them from beginning to end.” —BibleProject.com/about/

We meet every Sunday (while our kids are in Sunday school). REGISTER
