  • Gospel of Mark: Darlene Kelly, facilitator. In this study on the gospel of Mark, we will see Jesus revealed as the Son of God who came to serve and to restore humankind to God’s original purpose for them. Jesus said that the kingdom of God had come and we will see how, through Him, that kingdom is manifested. We will also share practical insights of how this same kingdom is to operate in our lives to change the world today. (Room 80, education wing, lower level) 
  • 20-Somethings: Matthew Kerwin, facilitator. A discussion-based class geared for adults in their twenties and college students. Join us as we continue to unpack one of C.S. Lewis’s classic novels, The Screwtape Letters, and discuss a wide spectrum of theological issues including temptation, pride, and love. (Room 141, education wing)
  • Faith Connections Lessons: Rick Kinde, facilitator. Scripture-based lessons using WordAction’s Faith Connection curriculum. This term’s study will continue with the final week of the life of Jesus, taken from various gospels, before moving to Old Testament stories to study some good and not-so-good characters. (Friendship Center)
  • Applying a Biblical Worldview to Current Events: Ron Follansbee and Aimee Lyon, facilitators. A discussion-based class that relates current news with relevant Scripture, focusing on how to apply the Bible to everyday life. Each week stands alone, so feel free to join the class any time. (Room 139, education wing)
  • The Practice of Godliness: James Kerwin and Rod Bassett, facilitators. A continuing discussion-based study of the book The Practice of Godliness, by Jerry Bridges. This term’s lessons will focus on godly virtues and how we pursue them. Godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. Since each class stands alone, participants are welcome to join during any class. It is recommended that participants obtain the book; however, it is not required. Cost of the book is approximately $10. (Room 81, lower education wing)
