  • 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. We are to train ourselves to be godly. We are to pursue godliness—the word “pursue” indicates unrelenting, persevering effort. Godliness with contentment is held forth as great gain; and finally, godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 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).
  • Applying a Biblical Worldview to Current Events: Ron Follansbee and Aimee Lyon, facilitators. A discussion-based class that will relate topics in the news with relevant Scripture. The focus will be 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)
  • 20-Somethings: Matthew Kerwin, facilitator. A discussion-based class geared for college students and adults in their twenties. Join them as they 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, love, and more. (Room 141, education wing)
  • Ecclesiastes: Bill Roushey, facilitator. Where can true happiness be found? This study of the wisdom book of Ecclesiastes seeks to answer the question, “How can I be satisfied with what I have?” If you’ve asked these questions or know others who have, come join this relevant study. (Room 80, lower level education wing)
  • Faith Connections Lessons, Kingdoms in Conflict: Rick Kinde, facilitator. This class discusses scripturally-based lessons using WordAction’s Faith Connection curriculum. This term’s study will examine various scriptures looking at the conflict between God’s Kingdom and the world’s Kingdom. Topics include how Jesus described God’s Kingdom in word and deed, the work of the Holy Spirit, overcoming addictions, loving your enemies, grace, facing death, and other areas of Kingdom conflict.
