Adult Classes 9:30AM

CORNERSTONE - Jesse Soulia - Rm. 3 (All Ages)

Book & Bible study with interactive sharing.   Current topic: Selections and discussions about Beauty: The Invisible Embrace by John O'Donohue, and the biblical call of "Beauty" in each of our lives. To help us rediscover and awaken to the true sources of compassion, serenity and hope in a world preoccupied by mediocrity, frantic gratification, and ugliness. 


COMMON GROUND- Gary & Marcy Weber/ Gary & Cindy Francis - Rm. 4/5 (All Ages)      

Focus on faith, family, finance and fellowship. Currently studying Gary Chapman's book, The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts. Here's a description: Unhappiness in marriage often has a simple root cause: we speak different love languages, believes Dr. Gary Chapman. While working as a marriage counselor for more than 30 years, he identified five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. In a friendly, often humorous style, he unpacks each one. Chapman illustrates each love language with real-life examples from his counseling practice.


NEARLY/NEWLY MARRIED - Matt Lobban - Rm. 6 (Youngish Adults)

An interactive class for the newly & nearly married.  Feel free to join us, and don’t worry about being late to class since most of us have kids to drop off upstairs in Base Camp or in Discovery Camp! Current study: Breathing Room: The Space Between Your Current Pace and Your Limit.


TRUE - Bill Loftis - Rm. 7 (All Ages) 

We have just begun studying the TRUE believer and what is at the heart of missions.  Join us as we study the heart of God and God's heart for reaching this world. 


CONNECT 4 - Pastor Todd Womack - Rm. 15 (All Ages)

Biblical & topical studies. Current study: Hearing God, by Dallas Willard. Description: How do we hear his voice? How can we be sure that what we think we hear is not our own subconscious? What role does the Bible play? What if what God says to us is not clear? The key is to focus not so much on individual actions and decisions as on building our personal relationship with our Creator. In this updated and expanded edition you'll gain rich spiritual insight into how we can hear God's voice clearly and develop an intimate partnership with him in the work of his kingdom. We’d love to have you join us!

FOOTSTEPS IN FAITH - Jim Stephenson - Rm. 4/5

 This class, designed for people of all ages, focuses on biblical studies with interactive learning.  We also place a great emphasis on prayer and create space within our class for intercessory prayer.   Currently we are studying the book of Hosea and several themes contained therein.  


SHEPHERDS - Ken Johnson - Rm. 7

(All Ages)  Interactive discussion style.  The Shepherds class is continually seeking "hidden treasure" within various books of the Bible, or in character studies of well-known men or women of the Bible. We like to make our class think, so we ask lots of questions, and encourage class participation via discussion. We even throw in a little humor once in a while :-)  Our current topic is the book of Ezra. 


LEGACY BUILDERS - Ron Sadler & John Lamb - Family Center

A multi-generational class specifically focused on in-depth discovery of biblical truths that can be understood in contemporary America.  Please join us as we explore our Judeo-Christian heritage, revealing the Messianic promise.  The only book you need for this class is the Bible.   For the remainder of 2017 we will study various accounts from the four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).
