The Great Adventure: Studies in Deuteronomy – Joe Pauley,Auditorium
How do we navigate the challenging and thrilling adventure that is life between here and heaven? Moses’s final speeches to the Israelites before they were to enter and take possession of the Promised Land provide some important safeguards for the faithfulness needed to follow our Lord. This series of lessons from Deuteronomy focuses on six of these safeguards.
Christian Counter-Culture: The Sermon on the Mount – Wes Aubrey & Others, Fellowship Hall
In an increasingly non-Christian culture, our actions and perspectives must be increasingly counter-cultural. In the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord repeatedly stresses the command to “not be like them” (Matt 6:8a), that is, the culture around us. In this Sermon on the Mount anchored study, we will collectively meditate on small sections of Matthew 5-7 each week and discuss the implications of applying these teachings to our lives. This class will be heavily participative and discussion oriented.
College and Young Adults Class – 1 Thessalonians, Mike Gulley’s Office
Do you ever feel as though your Christian faith has grown stale, that you are withering on the vine when you would rather be flourishing in His service? Impressed by the faithfulness of the Thessalonians in the face of persecution, Paul wrote to encourage the Christians in that community with the goal that they would continue to grow in godliness. With that in mind, Paul taught the people that any spiritual growth would ultimately be motivated by their hope in the ultimate return of Jesus Christ.
OT2: When’s Jesus Coming? Christian Thompson – Youth House
This study is for our middle school students (grades 6-8) and continues our study from last quarter where we saw Jesus through the Pentateuch. This quarter, we will be looking for Jesus through the prophets, as we see the same God weave this incredible, cohesive story that leads to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. More details here.
Gods at War: The Battle for Your Heart, Barry Boverie/Frank Overcast – Youth House
Teens in grades 9-12 will learn that there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus Christ is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else like money or popularity. Learn more about how these false gods are trying to win your heart.
