SPRING FORWARD THIS WEEKEND!
Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend – officially at 2 a.m. Sunday morning when we jump ahead one hour to 3 a.m. Although most phones, computers and smart devices will make the change automatically, you still need to update other clocks and not be an hour late for church.

Adult Classes – The Preaching About Jesus in The Acts of the Apostles, Auditorium Class, March 13 – April 17
How did the apostles teach and preach about Jesus in the earliest days after Jesus’ resurrection? To understand that, we will consider six passages in Acts, including Peter’s Pentecost sermon (Acts 2), the earliest preaching of Peter and John among the Jews (Acts 3-4), Philip’s preaching to the Samaritans and the Ethiopian official (Acts 8), Peter and Cornelius (Acts 10-11), Paul’s synagogue sermon at Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13), and Paul’s preaching of Jesus as king in Thessalonica (Acts 17).

Adult Classes – His Eternal Plan, Fellowship Hall Class, March 13 – May 29
This class answers several fundamental questions about God’s Plan for us. It is perfect for new Truth Seekers, who need to hear God’s Plan from beginning to end in order to understand the big picture. It is also perfect for veteran Truth Seekers, who want to be able to explain God’s Plan to others in a logical way or want to reground themselves in His plan. It is based on three major pillars: 1) There is a God, 2) The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and 3) Jesus is the Son of God.
 
College Age Class – Galatians Study, Mike Gulley’ Office
Galatians presents that our righteousness comes through Jesus and no one or nothing else! Jesus perfectly measured up to God’s Law because God knew that we would not and could not measure up. And so, He became our righteousness. Every act of obedience in Christ’s life was done on our behalf. He paid the penalty for our sin so we could be adopted into God’s family. All glory belongs to God!
 
Youth Classes. – Bible vs World, Don Moore and Christian Thompson, teachers
This practical Bible application class is specially designed for our soon-to-be adult students in grades 11 and 12. Please join us and bring your friends as we discuss what a Christian should know: Bible authenticity, what’s ok while dating, is homosexuality a sin, spouse picking, lying, forgiving, serving, and when to give in. All to be discussed openly and honestly in a class based on the Bible.
 
Preach the Word: Next Gen
This class for our students in grades 6 through 10 is designed to prepare them to step up and speak out for Christ. We hope our students will grow in these areas that will 1) Strengthen their faith, 2) Help them share Christ, and 3) Give them tools to be foundational members of a congregation.

Wednesday Evening
Adult Class – Themes from Proverbs
Proverbs is about making godly choices, the kinds of choices in life that bring honor and glory to God, or – as Proverbs would put it – choices that demonstrate “the fear of the LORD” (Prov. 1:7). In this study on the book of Proverbs, we’ll look closely at some of its main themes and learn about godly wisdom.
