Our church offers a variety of small-group, discipleship classes at various times throughout the year. Most Bible studies meet at 5:00 PM on Sunday evenings during the school year. In addition, a ladies' Bible study meets year round, and is offered at two different times: Sundays at 5:00 PM and Tuesdays at 9:00 AM. Bible studies for this semester are listed below.
Made to Crave - by Lysa Terkeurst
Lysa Terkeurst wrote the book Made to Crave from the perspective of a woman who has never craved a carrot stick in her whole life. Having struggled with her weight her whole adult life, Lysa knows what it feels like to be in the vicious cycle of gaining an d losing, but never feeling at peace in her struggle. Everything changed when Lysa decided to have her deepest desire met by God not food. Now, armed with the spiritual motivation she gained in her own journey, she is inspiring others to find lasting victory.
In Made to Crave, she will help you: Break the cycle of “I’ll start again on Monday,” and feel good about yourself today. Stop agonizing over numbers on the scale and make peace with your body. Replace rationalization that leads to diet failure with wisdom that leads to victory. Reach your healthy goals and grow closer to God through the process.
This class will be a ladies class facilitated by Tammy Adamson.
Radical - by David Platt
What’s so Radical about following Jesus? When Jesus called His disciples, they left everything and followed him. Careers. Possessions. Families. Everything familiar. Does Jesus expect less of His followers today? In this small-group Bible study, pastor David Platt challenges the notion that Christians can follow Jesus without giving up our old way of life. Redeemed by radical grace, we are called to a radical abandonment of our agendas, to a radical strategy for making disciples, and to a radical vision for being on mission. In this study, David Platt challenges Christians and churches to step out of “comfortable” Christianity, to take up their cross and to follow Him. To embrace Him as their richest treasure. To feed the poor and reach the lost. To live for the glory of God.
This class will be facilitated by Shawn Priddy.
Revival is undoubtedly needed in the church today. Our culture desperately needs a spiritual awakening. And God is awaiting a people who will cry out to Him for it.
In this revised version of Fresh Encounter, you will come face-to-face with the truth of Scripture and the conviction of the Holy Spirit. By exploring the gracious nature of God and the wandering habits of the human heart, you will be called and challenged to return to Him.
But returning personally is not enough. Through this transformative study, you will learn how God desires to use each believer as a catalyst for revival and spiritual awakening in our community—and throughout the world.
This is a seven week study and will be offered as a follow up to Radical.
