Daniel: His Life and Prophecies


The Apostle John's Seven Letters

Learning Center | Teacher: Rick Welty

This class will continue – and finish – the study of the Prophet Daniel, and will then go into the study of the Apostle John’s seven letters to the churches of Asia Minor, addressing what the Lord revealed to John in these letters and how this applies to the church today.



Thirty Years That Changed The World: The Book of Acts

Room C8 | Teachers: Kathy Kennelly, Steve Apsey, and Randy Hroziencik

The Book of Acts tells us about the first three decades of the Church Age, in which Peter, Paul, and the other apostles changed the world through their evangelistic efforts.  The Jewish and pagan worldviews were eventually eclipsed by the message of the gospel – the “Good News” of Jesus Christ – which today is the largest religious group in the world.  What Luke recorded for us in the Book of Acts still impacts us greatly today.


The Gospels and the Writings of Paul

Room C10 | Teacher: Sue Hulett

A study of the religious, political, cultural, and literary background of the Gospels and Paul’s Epistles. In addition to reading the Gospels and Paul’s letters to the churches devotionally, we focus on finding the meaning of Scripture by listening to the Holy Spirit's leading and prompting. We first study the history of religion, culture, politics, and written and oral language at the time of Jesus and the early church. We will thus know more about the theological debates between Jesus and the Pharisees, the cultural influences stemming from Jewish and Greek philosophy and societal norms, and about the language and writing style of the Gospel writers -- and also Paul. Just for examples: we might discover more about Jesus' unique use of parables and poetic forms, the theological distinctions between John's and Matthew's Gospels, and the role of Pharisees, Sadducees, women, and Gentiles in the first century. Bring your Bibles, your favorite Commentaries, and your reflections.


Andy Stanley Series

Room C4 | Teacher: Rob and Nikki Potter

A series of video lessons from the very inspirational Bible application teacher Andy Stanley will form the heart of this class, with lots of room for discussion of the video.  Come prepared to have your faith energized.


Women's Class

Library | Teacher: Anita Beetler


 This class offers a time of fellowship for us as women, to pray, study God’s Word, and discuss the issues that capture our attention.  Come prepared to be spiritually uplifted.
