Adult Class – Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at the Table – Steve Ferro, June 11-Aug. 27
In this class, we will unpack God’s plan on how to overcome the enemy’s lies and find peace and spiritual security in any circumstance or situation. God has set a table for you filled with a banquet of peace, clarity, and purpose. But Satan is constantly looking for an invitation, seeking to fill your mind with distractions, fear, worry, insecurity, anxiety, temptation, and doubt. By trusting God’s plan, we can keep Satan from taking a seat at our perfect table set by God.
College and Young Adults Class – 1 Timothy, Mike Gulley’s Office
Paul’s first letter to Timothy gives practical advice on leading, administrating, and pastoring the local church. The instructions in this letter apply to any leader or prospective leader of Christ’s church and are equally relevant today as they were in Paul’s day. For those not called into leadership roles in their church, the book is still practical. Every follower must contend for the faith and avoid false teaching. Every follower must stand firm and persevere.
Youth Classes – The Lies We Believe (and the Truth of the Gospel) – Christian Thompson and others – Youth House
This study is for our students grades 6-12. Sometimes it can feel like the messages the world is saying are so loud and consistent, it’s hard not to believe them. In this study, we will combat some of the lies we hear with what the truth of the Gospels says. This study is based on the book The Lies We Believe by Dr. Chris Thurman. More details here.
