Downstairs ("Heart Reformation: Exploring the Life of David"; Fellowship Hall @ 9:30 AM; Teacher - David Goodfred) 

This new community bible study starts on January 5th and will focus on the process of substituting our current  heart condition for God's Spirit to work in our lives and the lives of others. Class content will center on king  David (1 and 2 Samuel) and applied Christianity, meaning there will be weekly bible readings, lesson  reflections, and spiritual challenges that will give us ample opportunity to battle the American culture  through deliberate and meaningful time with God. Additionally, dialogue and weekly attendance with one  another will be essential to class organization; therefore, your comments and experiences will help  direct class flow and subsequent community and personal applications. Class series will continue until the  end of March.

1.  Adult Class (Auditorium) - Minor Prophets

Upstairs - Minor Prophets dialogue studies - Teachers include, but are not limited to Gene Rainey, Ed Pagán, Dwayne Maxwell, Andy Newberry, Bill McElrath, etc.)  

This dialogue-based series will divide the twelve Minor Prophets into four sections:  (1) The Bad Neighbors; (2) The Assyrian Empire prophets; (3) The Babylonian Empire prophets; and (3) the Persian Empire prophets.  God used these terrible empires to punish his people's sins and to promise them a better future with the coming of the Messiah. The Spring quarter (April-June; "Bad Neighbors") who are Nineveh, six surrounding nations with Obadiah's sole focus on Edom in the shortest book in the Old Testament) will cover Jonah (four lessons), Amos (eight lessons) and Obadiah (one lesson).

Adult Class (Auditorium) - Truth Project - Promotional Video

Sunday, July 6th, we'll embark on a powerful journey together. By now, most of you have observed or heard about our Truth Project promotional video clips/series and hopefully, are anticipating the upcoming 3 months of study on Sunday mornings in the auditorium at 9:30. Please arrive promptly and preferably, 5-minutes early, because these videos will take the entire class time, so starting a few minutes early would be optimal. I would recommend taking good notes, absorbing the content, and most importantly, talking about these lessons with non-Christian/Christian friends family, co-workers, etc., as we share God's glory with each other and our communities. Please invite anyone you believe that would be interested in this series.
 
The Truth Project is a DVD-based series designed to equip believers with a comprehensive biblical worldview. Practically and personally, participants will be reintroduced to the truth claims of God. Twelve lessons discuss in detail God's design for living out the Christian worldview in daily life. Most importantly, this series addresses the need to align our actions with our core beliefs. What this curriculum does is nothing short of transformational.
 
What will you encounter through this curriculum?
 
The following list contains the topics that will be covered by week:

Lesson 12 - [10-5-14] - Community & Involvement: God Cares, Do I? [Lesson 12 Guide]  [Lesson 12 Scriptures]

As you can see, we will be entering disciplines many of us do not frequent, which I believe can be a problem when trying to share/prove Christ to an educated, evidence-based American society. Lack of preparation/information to debate the toughest secular questions this world continues to ask can make believers seem incompetent, close-minded, and intolerant. However, with fortified factual knowledge and study of God's word, I'm confident lives/hearts can be changed through loving dialogue, coupled with Christ-changed observed daily living. When truth is defined by the foundation to which it was created, everything promised in an abundant life through Jesus becomes reality.
