TUESDAY MORNINGS  

How Did We Get the Church of Today - The First 1600 Years  VIDEO

The Gospels leave us with men and women who acknowledge Jesus as their Messiah Savior, the one who died and rose to fulfill the Old Testament promise of true forgiveness and fellowship with God.  Although they have lost their earthly leader, they are filled with zeal and ready to change the world in anticipation of His return.  Decisions about lines of authority and doctrine were still in the future.  We will look at the major decisions starting with those in the book of Acts and then those made us to 1600 AD.  For those decisions made after Acts closes, we will look at passages of Scripture they were based on and those they conflict with. Leader:  Carole Capen

The Rest of the Gospel  VIDEO

Dan Stone and David Gregory wrote The Rest of the Gospel to help others enter into the fullness of an intimate relationship with Christ and to have “Christ in you, the hope of glory”  Colossians 1:27.  We wrestle with the questions: What is God’s plan for us?  We learn that we are not the center of the universe.  Jesus is!  God has a plan for us.  It becomes our purpose for living.  We also learn that we are God’s inheritance.  This truth is told to us in Romans 10:36: “For from Him and through Him are all things.  To Him be the glory forever.  Leaders:  Marilyn Young & Sally Moore

Rest, Remind, and Reflect  VIDEO

God’s truth invites us to rest in what He has done, reminds us of the truth, and encourages us to live in the light of it.  Each week, we will worship together, meditate on the truth of the good news of Jesus Christ, and share in small groups.  This study may also be streamed or zoomed.  Leaders:  Deb Lee & Amanda Holland

Moses - Eyewitness to the Glory  VIDEO

Moses was honored as the man who wrote the first five books of Bible, was used by God to deliver Israel from bondage in Egypt, was Israel’s first and greatest prophet, and was used by God to deliver the law and the Ten Commandments.  Other than Jesus, no one has had a greater impact on western civilization than Moses.  Yet, Moses was born into the world during a time of great suffering, was given up for adoption, had physical challenges, and was plagued by a strong sense of inadequacy.  Despite these hardships, he was chosen by God to do great and amazing things.  Through this study we are going to learn how it was that Moses could overcome his own insecurities and be empowered to persevere through the path that God had laid out for him, to discern God’s active presence at work in our life, and to trust God.  Leader:  Bev Bushelman

Living in the Hard Times (two-semester study)  VIDEO

Jesus told His disciples in John 16:33, “In this world, you will have trouble…” We are to count on it, not be surprised by it and, therefore, to be prepared as we can for it.  During our lives on this troubled earth, many events will come into our lives that will bring great joy and pleasure but some will come that will bring immense pain and sorrow...some that will shake us to our very core.  We never know when which will happen.  So, it will be wise of us to do what we can to be prepared for the unexpected.  In the first semester, we will delve deeply into the character of God and what He created us for as the foundation.  Only with this foundation of being rooted in the character of God will we then in the second semester, delve into the many ways we can grow deeply in walking with Him during the hard times.  Hopefully, you will grow to know the Lord in a much deeper way as I have; and because of this, will find it easier to trust Him with events in life that can sometimes be far beyond all human reason and understanding.  Leader:  Diane Kindall

TUESDAY EVENING  

Becoming a Woman of Freedom by Cynthia Heald (off campus) 6:30 pm VIDEO

We all can become encumbered by spiritual and emotional burdens that hold us back from running the race that God intends for us.  Through scripture, we will explore how to lay aside these weights and hindrances that burden us and keep us from experiencing the peace, joy, and freedom that the Lord longs for us to enjoy.  This study meets off-campus at the home of Lisa Woods. Leaders:  Veralyn Adams and Lisa Woods

The Gospel-Centered Woman by Wendy Alsup (on campus)  6:30 pm VIDEO

The Bible is clear about what God has planned for women and yet despite our best efforts, we sometimes fall short, fail miserably, or miss out entirely.  But there is hope and grace because Christ has made a way for us to embrace our legacy as daughters of God.  We will discover how the gospel equips us to bridge the gap between God’s good plan for us and the fallen reality in which we often find ourselves.  Leader: Robyn Pomonis
