A study in the book of Daniel

Teacher: Hoyt Samples | Wednesdays, 6-7p | Rm 102-103 & Facebook Live |

The focus of this class will be the book for Daniel. The book of Daniel is a favorite for Sunday school teachers and students alike. And for good reason. It has all the makings of a great story—memorable characters, cliffhanger drama, and science fiction–like visions. It’s like Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings with a dash of Star Wars thrown in! This is an open class for all ages and you can start attending at any time. It will be lecture based with some discussion at the end.

You can also join us on Facebook Live at 6p. We would encourage you to interact as you watch live!

Take Every Thought Captive

Leader: Penny Holloway | Wednesdays, 6-7:30p | College Room | $15

The focus of this class will be the book Take Every Thought Captive by Kelly Valarie. This is an open class for all ages and you can start attending at any time. It is lecture and discussion based. Your thought life determines your whole life. The enemy wants you chained to hopeless, powerless, and worthless thoughts so you don’t trust your victorious God. Do you ever think, I can’t do this . . . I’ll never be . . . I’m not good enough . . . There is no way . . . ? The enemy lies, but what supersedes those lies is the truth. Truth, when seized, has the power to speak louder than fear, insecurity, and worry. Only by exchanging the lies of the enemy for the mind of Christ will your mind become truly rewired, renewed, and transformed. Your mind doesn’t have to hold you back any longer; God’s truth has all power to set you free.

The Parables

Teacher: Teresa Regan | Wednesdays, 5–6p | Hospitality Room | $10 (starts Aug 23rd)

Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures. Some of them were no more than fleeting remarks about commonplace incidents, objects, or persons. In fact, the most compact of all Jesus’ short stories does not even fill a complete verse of Scripture. Yet the all were filled with profound spiritual lessons that He wanted His listeners to hear and understand. Jesus told these parables so they would clearly comprehend His message about the kingdom of God and the reason He had come to earth. This is an open class for all ages and you can start attending at any time. It is lecture and discussion based.
