Study (May 26 - August 11): Book of Genesis Life Lessons Inspirational Series by Max Lucado

A beginning. An origin. A foundation. Knowing where we came from says much about where we are going. Perhaps that is why the first book of the Bible is a book of beginnings. God wants us to know where we came from. Learning that will teach us much about the place we are going. This study brings the Bible to life with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word.

Current Study: Building Up One Another by Gene Getz

The body of Christ can’t be all that it should be unless we mature in our interpersonal relationships as the Bible commands. Building Up One Another has been helping believers do just that. Explore with Dr. Getz twelve significant “one another” commands of the New Testament, and follow the practical steps for developing them in your own life and in the life of your church. It’s a long-term building process, but one that pleases God and reaps rewards not just in this lifetime but in the next.

Upcoming Study (begins July 28): In the Eve of the Storm by Max Lucado

If you’ve ever wondered if God in heaven can relate to you on earth, then join us as we study the pressure-packed, “second-most stressful day in the life of our Savior.” Before the morning becomes evening, Jesus has reason to weep, then run, then shout, then praise, then doubt. Within a matter moments his world is turned upside down. Sound familiar? The pink slip comes, the doctor calls, the divorce papers arrive. The check bounces. The life that had been calm is now chaotic. 

Contemporary Believers

Sundays // 9:00 a.m. // Lecture Hall (Room 330) // Led by Russ Cline

Study: Travelling Light by Max Lucado

Weary travelers. You've seen them -- everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks. We've all seen people like that. At times, we are people like that -- if not with our physical luggage, then at least with our spiritual load. We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We're worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn't it be nice to lose some of those bags? That's the invitation of Max Lucado. With the Twenty-third Psalm as our guide, let's release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear.

Seekers of the Word

Sundays // 9:00 a.m. // Room 311 // Led by Glenn Sellars and Bill Carpenter 

Study: The Books of The Minor Prophets

We are studying the "Minor Prophets” (not because they’re less important than the "Major Prophets", but because they’re shorter in length). Together, their indictments of Israel’s drift away from God set the stage for the New Covenant that will be ushered in with the birth of Jesus Christ. We will study what these ancient books meant to the people back then, what they mean to us today, and how we can apply that to our lives. It’s easy to get lost in all the “doom and gloom,” but these prophets show that God’s desire, in every situation back then and for us today, was for His people to renounce evil and return to Him. Join us anytime as we study these last 12 books of the Old Testament.

Study (March 20 - April 30): Job: A Story of Unlikely Joy by Lisa Harper

Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. Just ask Job, the man from Uz who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this 7-session study by Lisa Harper, discover the redemptive side to Job’s story of suffering. Learn to use pain to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and remember God’s providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.

Study (Begins August 14): First Corinthians (Living Love When We Disagree) by Melissa Spoelstra

Relationships are messy. Sometimes we struggle to get along, especially when there is disagreement. Often we find ourselves divided--even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing. In this six-week study, we will explore Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions--whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.

Disciple I

Will resume meeting in the Fall!

Study: All In // You Are One Decision Away From a Totally Different Life

The message of All In is simple: if Jesus is not Lord of all then Jesus is not Lord at all.  It’s all or nothing. It’s now or never.  Kneeling at the foot of cross of Christ and surrendering to His Lordship is a radical act of dethroning yourself and enthroning Christ as King. It’s also an act of disowning yourself.  Nothing belongs to you. Not even you.
