Faith in Life Series: The Call to Spiritual Reformation

October 31, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the year Martin Luther made his 95 Theses known to the world, thus changing the history of the church and world forever. 

The church had lost its way; it was and is in need of Reformation and refocus.  The 95 Theses simply declare, “The Church’s true treasure is the gospel of Jesus Christ.”  The reformation gave God's church a roadmap to stay on His course: five solas, the essential things.

  1. Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority.
  2. Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
  3. Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.
  4. Solus Christus (“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.
  5. Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.

Join us as we celebrate the rich church history of the Reformation and use it to refocus and deepen our personal relationship with God.

A Study of the Book of Acts: True Kingdom Building, Part 2

Don’t let the “Part 2” hinder you! Reading a few chapters in the book of Acts will have you caught up!

What truly builds the Kingdom of God? This verse-by-verse study through the books of Acts helps us to consider what true Kingdom building really is. Our entrance into God’s Kingdom is through Jesus Christ, and the Word of God is our blueprint for building. When Jesus appeared before His disciples at the beginning of Acts, He told them to wait to receive the power of the Holy Spirit. We will explore God’s plan for His Kingdom and our part in seeking His Kingdom first, empowered and directed by the Holy Spirit.

  • Teacher: Charlotte Travis
  • Dates: Sept. 14 – Nov. 9
  • Room: 201-203

The Gospel of John, Part 1

In his gospel, the apostle John relates stories and teaching aimed to reveal the deity of Jesus Christ and to help us lean further into a personal intimacy with Him. John writes, “Jesus performed many other signs… but these are written that you may believe… have life in His name." This study involves some basic homework, group discussion, teaching, and warm fellowship. Anyone longing for more of Jesus would find a welcome niche.

Rebuild: A Study of Nehemiah (Mom to Mom - all women welcome!)

Mom to Mom: This fall we are joining with women of all ages to seek a clearer vision of God’s faithfulness to His people after seeming disaster…

“REBUILD,” a study in Nehemiah, is a compelling story for women today. Amid intense opposition, Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem during a time when there was disunity and failure all around. As mothers, we build and rebuild in many arenas, but this powerful look into this beautiful story of our God who is always watching over His people will give perspective regarding His promises and provision for His people. We need to be able to tell the next generation the message of Nehemiah, that they will be a generation who labors for the God who fights for us in a fallen world!

  • Leader: Connie Musselman
  • Dates: September 14, 21, 28, October 5, 12, 19, 26, November 2, 16
  • Room: Commons
  • Cost: $20

The deadline for childcare for this study is Thursday, August 31, or whenever childcare is full. Register early!

Please note that ALL information must be received in order for registration to be complete.

A Study of the Gospel of Matthew

The Gospel according to Matthew is a bridge book linking the Old Testament with its longing and desire for the coming of the Messiah to the revelation of the Messiah’s kingly rule over the new people of God. Today, we too need to know that Jesus is truly God’s King, and our hearts need to hear His call to “follow Me.” Today, we need to hear His command to take the message of His death and resurrection to the world.

John: That You May Believe, Part 1

The book of John offers something for everyone, from the person seeking to know Jesus for the first time, to Christians who want to experience His love at a deeper level. Through a combination of lecture and discussion, this class offers women an opportunity to study one of the most quoted and beloved books of the Bible in a fellowship of caring Christian women.

The class uses Kathleen Nielson’s book, John: That You May Believe, to guide the study. Nielson says that the book of John offers insight into “Jesus' deep discourses and the beauty of his unfolding passion throughout its chapters. Jesus, the Word made flesh, emerges powerfully and personally, so it is no surprise that John sums up his gospel's message as ‘so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name’ (John 20:31)." John offers a theologically deep answer and a compelling historical narrative as to the identity and purpose of God's anointed Son.

The book contains 20 chapters, covering the 21 chapters of John. The fall course will cover the first ten chapters of John. Chapters 11-21 will be covered in the spring, but each course can stand alone if a participant can only do one course.

Behold Your God

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” - A.W. Tozer. 

In this study, we are reintroduced to the God of the Bible and how we see His attributes. Are we sure that the God we serve is the God described in Scripture? Is rethinking Him biblically really necessary? How do we do it? How would it affect our views of Christ, the gospel, holiness, worship, evangelism, service, and revival? This study focuses on God’s self-revelation in the Bible, helping us to plow our hearts and apply the descriptions of God to all of life. We will also learn biographical backgrounds of some of the lives and labors of previous Christians and how we can apply their examples.

  • Leader: Laurie Graffo, assisted by Trish Bruce
  • Dates: Sept. 7 – Dec. 14

Revelation, Part 3

“What is the sign of his coming and of the end of the age?" 

In Part 3 of this course we will begin a careful study of our Lord’s teaching regarding His coming and the end of the age – part of it given before His crucifixion and part after His ascension. When we integrate the teachings of the Gospels, we have a more thorough understanding of the Second Coming, the sequence of events surrounding it, and the purpose and outcome of this long-anticipated event. Each part of this study of the Book of Revelation is free standing, so we invite all who are interested in studying what the Lord has to say regarding His return to join us.

  • Room: 229 B, C
