College and Young Adults Class –Colossians, Mike Gulley’s Office
For Paul, the nature of Jesus as Creator and Redeemer was nonnegotiable. He focuses on Christ as being sovereign and over all things. As such, Jesus is also Head over the church. He has reconciled all things to Himself through His death on the cross, making believers alive to God and setting them on the path to right living.
OT1: Where’s Jesus? Joe Pauley/Ben Painter – Youth House
For kids in grades 6-8. Sometimes is difficult for us to see and understand that the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament is the same. The truth is, not only is He the same God but scripture as a whole is telling the same cohesive story. In this study, we will be looking at part one of our journey of seeing Jesus throughout the Old Testament.
Deal or No Deal, Mike Gulley/Dan Moore – Youth House
For teens in grades 9 and 10, Deal or No Deal is a study of the various covenants in scripture and the God who made them. Throughout this study, we strive to establish the importance of covenants in our lives today as well as understand God’s role and usage of covenants throughout scripture.
Bible v. World, Don Moore – Youth House
