Armor of God by Priscilla ShirerWednesday Morning

6:00 to 7:00 a.m.

Sept. 5 to Spring 2019

$14.50

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. This study isn’t merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, but is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory. Class time includes video teaching and group discussion.

This class will be meeting in Room Y3 of the Youth Building.

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Sept. 6 to Dec. 6

$10.00

Kate Grefenstette, kpgref@gmail.com

Who is God? What is love? People have asked these questions for thousands of years, and they were asking them in John’s day too. Christians like John believed the answers were found in Jesus, but some so-called believers were leading people astray, questioning Jesus’ very identity. John wrote these letters to the churches he loved in order to keep them straight. With conviction, confidence, and clarity, John presents a compelling picture of Jesus―so we see clearly who God is and what love is. Class time will include leader-led group discussion.

Precept Upon Precept® Bible Studies take about 45 minutes to an hour of daily personal study. Every lesson is discussed in class and then a teaching video is watched after the discussion.

The Gospel of Luke is a walk through events in Jesus’ life. Watch how the Son of Man, the Savior, enters the homes of the suffering, visits tax collectors, and dines with sinners. Learn from His words, His walk, and His relationships with common people what it really means “to follow Him.” Hear what Jesus taught about the kingdom of God and how you, today, can be prepared for the difficult times ahead and to stand before the Son of Man.

Identity Theft: Reclaiming the Truth of Our Identity in Christ, ed. Melissa KrugerThursday Morning

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Sept. 6 to Dec. 6

$14.50

Who am I? It’s a question we all ask ourselves at some point. Depending on the season we focus our identity on our job performance, marital status, personality type, or social network, among other options. However, there’s a larger question to consider. Who does the Bible tell me I am in Christ? From the wisdom and perspective of insightful authors—including Jen Wilkin, Hannah Anderson, Trillia Newbell, and Jen Pollock Michel—we’ll seek to answer this question by: Exposing our false notions of identity; Understanding the biblical truth of our identity in Christ; and Reflecting on what it looks like to live in our new (and true) identity. We’ll cover everything from our identity as children of God to citizens of heaven. Class time will include leader-led group discussion.

An age-old question asks, “What is the meaning of life?” Many try to answer this question by pursuing wealth, fame, power or control. While these may satisfy for a time, we are often left feeling empty and unfulfilled. The book of Ecclesiastes invites us to wrestle with God’s purpose for our lives and how we can find true significance.

Making Your Case for Christ: An Action Plan for Sharing What You Believe and Why by Lee Strobel and Mark MittelbergThursday Evening

6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Sept. 27 to Dec. 6

$9.00

In The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel retraced his spiritual journey from atheism to faith by showing how the evidence he obtained from experts in the field of history, archaeology, and ancient manuscripts led him to the verdict that Jesus truly was the Son of God.

In this training course, Lee and coauthor Mark Mittelberg will equip you with practical tools to equip you to articulate this same message to your unsaved friends and present evidence that backs up Jesus’ claims and credentials.

As you go through the course, you will discover how to:

  • Help your unsaved friends and family members open up to consider the case for Christ
  • Describe your own personal journey with Christ and how it has impacted you
  • Share with confidence about the biblical record of Christ—that Jesus was real
  • Present the evidence for the resurrection of Christ—that Jesus died and was raised to life
  • Explain the central message of Christ in an authentic and compelling way
  • Help your unsaved friends and family members respond to the truth of Jesus

Class time includes video teaching and group discussion.
