Sunday Evenings

Two Day Apologetics Seminar | C

Friday, January 7, 6:00-8:30pm

Saturday, January 8, 8:30-11:30am

Room 137

Friday:  How to Understand the 'Health and Wealth' gospels

Is it just a matter of having enough faith? We will scripturally examine both the surface and key teachings of this global heresy so that we might give an answer about that hope in us.

 

Saturday:  How America became Pagan

How do you respond when someone starts talking about “Mother Earth?” What does the “green to the extreme” emphasis have in common with this mindset? There are a lot of misconceptions and misunderstanding about this particular worldview and how it has penetrated the major sectors of our culture. This seminar will help shape our discernment.

This seminar is a preview of the Apologetics Course that will be offered beginning Wednesday, January 12, 6:30pm.

 

Includes all materials, supper Friday evening and breakfast Saturday morning.

 

Deadline to register:  Tuesday, January 4, at 12:00 noon.

Tuesday Mornings

Biscuits and Bible Study,

2 Corinthians   | M

Led by Dr. Jeff Meyers

Ongoing |  Jim Bob’s, Tiger Town  |  6:30 am

Pastor Jeff will begin a verse-by-verse Bible study of Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians. In Second Corinthians, Paul encouraged believers to value generosity, humility, and weakness. He turns upside down our preconceived notions of the way life works. Paul stresses the hallmarks of the Christian life as strength through weakness, the importance of reconciliation in broken relationships, and the powerful example of servant leadership. Doors will open at 6:15am for biscuits and coffee. The Bible study will begin at 6:30am and conclude by 7:15am.

No registration needed.

Take Courage, by Jennifer Rothschild | W

Led by Martha Tabor and Mary Winkler

Begins Tuesday, January 18

8 weeks  |  The 3:16 Center  |  9:30 am

Do you ever feel like the happy ending of your story is a million miles away? Then you know how the Jewish people felt when they returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple. They were distracted, discouraged, and ready to throw in the towel. But the prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them. Sometimes the landscapes of our lives feel wrecked, with our hope and purpose in shambles. We too get distracted and discouraged. However, God’s presence and promises give us courage to press on and trust Him with our story. In this study on the Book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results you may never see in this lifetime

Jonah, by Priscilla Shirer | W

Led by Sandy Speakman and Beth Redden

Begins Wednesday, January 12

7 weeks  |  Room 137 |  9:45 am

Interruptions. They're aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves. What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! Priscilla redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God's invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.

11 weeks  |  Room 309  |  6:20 pm

Materials provided in class.

Do you want to know God and really believe Him? Do you want to find satisfaction in God, experience His peace, and enjoy His presence? Do you want to make the freedom Christ promised a reality in your daily life? In Breaking Free, Beth Moore embarks on a study of selected passages from the Book of Isaiah, drawing several parallels between the captive Israelites and today's Christians, in order to show how to make freedom in Christ a daily reality. Moore teaches readers to remove obstacles that hinder freedom by identifying spiritual strongholds in their lives and overcoming them through the truth of God's Word—truth that will set us free

Sleeping Giant, by Kenny Luck | M

Led by Adam Creel and Jason Graham

Begins Wednesday, January 5

6 weeks  |  Man Cave |  6:15 pm

Kenny Luck uses the term "sleeping giant" to describe the men in the body of Christ and the incredible untapped potential within. Pastors intuitively sense it but are sometimes unsure how to meaningfully engage and integrate the men of their churches. Sleeping Giant introduces a process to moving men along an intentional spiritual pathway from "affiliated" to "activated." The Sleeping Giant model begins with a core team chosen by the pastor. Working together, this core team will create a vision for men based on the pastor's vision for the church while initiating their own spiritual path. Through the six sessions, this core team will go through the process of Get In, Get Healthy, Get Strong, and Get Going. Upon completion, they will be ready to lead other men through that same process, creating a multiplying effect that spills over into the rest of the church and the community

Thursday Mornings

First Corinthians | C

Led by Martha Tabor

Thursday, January 13 – April 28

Room 203  |  11:00 am

Paul’s letter to the church at Corinth is unique in his writings because the pagan culture of the city of Corinth had crept into the church and an outsider would not have been able to tell the difference in the people of God and the people of the world. Paul addressed specific issues with this church and minced no words in calling them out for their unChristian-like conduct. Today there is a constant struggle in the church to behave in both word and deed in a Christ-honoring way amidst the cultural climate in America. The issues addressed by Paul are still prevalent today: jealousy, lawsuits, immorality, etc. Come join us as we study through this epistle of I Corinthians. Bible is only text required.
