We believe every Christian should be involved in the serious study of scripture. We are committed to providing quality Bible studies. We either go through a book of the Bible or we offer a topical study that is pulled directly from Scripture. The classes change from semester to semester. Also, those of you with children please note: We do offer nursery during Sunday school as well as a worker that oversees the grade-school-aged children.

Gospel in Life
Led by Pastor Dave
This is an intensive study of the gospel and how it is to be lived out in all of life – first in your heart, then in your community, and then out into the world. We will examine how the gospel changes the city, the heart, challenges idolatry, influences community, gives meaning to work, inspires the pursuit of justice, and gives us hope for eternity. The gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to change all of life. We must learn to engage with it and let it shape us.
The Origins and History of the Church
Led by Pastor Jack Carter
Since the late first century, almost all Christians have confessed their belief in the “one, holy, catholic (universal), and apostolic church” as the Nicene Creed puts it. This statement of belief was not controversial and for centuries it held. But the unity for which Christ prayed is not now seen in our world. Our study will not simply be a history of the church, or just a study of the doctrines that have divided us. Rather, we will attempt to gain an understanding of those differences with a view to know and appreciate the various parts of the Body of Christ even when there is doctrinal disagreement. When all is said and done, Christians are folk who have been born again of the Spirit of God and belong to the church because the Spirit has united them to the Body of Christ. The lifeblood of that union is love, and we must love all who love the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Let us “Be the church.” This study will attempt to contribute to that high calling.
Youth Discipleship | Stories
Led by Pastor Jeremy DeBord
This class will help our youth process three important stories. First, we have to learn our own story. Questions like “who has God created me to be?” and “what is my place in this world?” will be discussed. Second, what is the story of the church and how do our youth fit into God’s purposes for the church? Third, what is God’s story? This question will be explored as we look to the Bible to learn about who God is. These three stories will help create a framework for our youth as they begin to see that God has a purpose for them right here, right now.
