Adult Bible Study: Sundays at 9:30am
Topic: Kings of Judah, The Christian Family
Lead by: Mike Barrentine
Location: Room 104
Description: Unit 1 Kings of Judah: One might wonder how studying the history of God’s people and the lives of long-deceased kings might apply to Christians in the twenty-first century. This unit reminds us that the great truths of faith over doubt and despair, of trust in God over self-reliance, and of humility over arrogance—reminders we need today as they did in the days of Judah’s kings. Unit 2 The Christian Family: How would you describe your family life growing up? Did you experience strong family ties built over generations of faith in Christ? Or do your memories bring apathy, regret, or even resentment? A person’s family experiences can greatly impact their relationships with others, and even pose unique challenges in their walk with God. This unit examines what Scripture teaches about family from biological, social, and spiritual perspectives. It looks at God’s instructions regarding the foundations of a godly family, and can help us develop healthy relationships regardless of our past experiences.
Senior Adult Bible Study: Tuesdays at 10am
Topic: A life Beyond Amazing by Dr. David Jeremiah
Leader: Fay Dick
Location: Downstairs 2 story building
Description: Are you ready to become the person God has called you to be? In A Life Beyond Amazing, bestselling author Dr. David Jeremiah uncovers God's strategy for change and challenges you to make nine important decisions that will transform your heart, your life, and your world. This life-changing book explores the nine qualities of character that carry us forward. Three of these have to do with our relationship with ourselves, three deal with interactions with other people, and three of them focus on our relationship with God. Spiritual principles are true in any situation. But we must make a conscious decision to employ them in our daily lives.
Adult Bible Study: Tuesdays at 5:30pm
Topic: The Book of James
Leader: John Garner
Location: Downstairs 2 story building
Description: If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict? The author of the Epistle of James argues that, if we truly are saved by Grace and live by Faith, the evidence will be clear. As we look at the Epistle of James we will see that the author bears down on practical Christian living. He does not get away from the subject of faith, however. James argues that justification by faith is demonstrated by works. Our faith must play out in the crucible of daily living. Come explore with us this practical writing from the man who tradition tells us was given the name “Old Camel Knees” because he spent so much time in prayer.
