This six-session, small group bible study DVD, Fire on the Mountain, by noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, is volume nine of the 12-part Faith Lessons series. When the Israelites left Egypt, they were finally free. Free from persecution, free from oppression, and free to worship their God. But with that freedom comes a new challenge – learning how to live together the way God intends. In this ninth volume of Faith Lessons, discover how God teaches the Israelites what it means to be part of a community that loves him and what that means for us today. Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God's Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible's fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the scriptures' significance for modern believers. These illuminating 'faith lessons' afford a new understanding of the Bible that will ground your convictions and transform your life.

2. Men’s Adult Class (Fellowship Hall) – “Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul”
This eight-session study DVD by John Eldredge invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. A man needs adventure….in his work, in his love, and in his spiritual life. Deep in his heart, he wants a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue because that’s how God created him. The problem is that deep wounds from earlier years have taken away his confidence and, in some cases, his masculinity. The church can reclaim these wounded warriors for God. It begins with understanding what makes a man come alive and what stirs his heart. This study provides wisdom and insight through embarking on a journey to discover how God can heal a wounded heart and put a spirit of adventure back in your life.

“What Does the Bible say about …”
Living in today’s world often brings about situations that make us unsure or uncomfortable in trying to respond in a Christian way. It may be living conditions that were unthinkable 30 or 40 years ago. It may be ethical dilemmas that are dropped in our lap by family or other loved ones. Questions arise about the forms of our worship, gender roles, racial prejudices, and a host of other topics that are often “just not discussed” in the church.
A Wednesday evening Bible study, beginning September 24th, will explore these topics with the intent to discern God’s message for Christian living today. Our prayerful expectation is that we will be drawn closer to God, closer to one another, and closer to our community. We should be more at ease when these difficult situations arise knowing that we have something worthwhile to offer from God’s word and be better able to minister to someone searching for life’s answers.
Topics will be announced at least a week in advance to allow time for personal Bible study, prayer, and consideration of how you see each topic. This dialogue oriented class is being led by Matt Goodman (pulpit minister), Ryan Robertson (youth minister), and Steve Evans (elder). Class will begin promptly at 7 PM each Wednesday evening in the downstairs fellowship room.
