Jesus Is Greater
Sundays, 9:30 AM / Fellowship Hall 
Join us as we do a verse-by-verse study of Hebrews. The key passage is Hebrews 6:1-3, So come on, let’s leave the preschool finger painting exercises on Christ and get on with the grand work of art. Grow up in Christ. The basic foundational truths are in place: turning your back on “salvation by self-help” and turning in trust toward God; baptismal instructions; laying on of hands; resurrection of the dead; eternal judgment. God helping us, we’ll stay true to all that. But there’s so much more. Let’s get on with it! (The Message)

Jesus In the Old Testament
Sundays, 9:30 AM  /  Room 206 
Jesus said he came to fulfill the law, not to do away with it! This fall we will be looking how Jesus is evidenced in the Old Testament. We will see the connection between what he said, experienced and fulfilled. Join us as we rediscover Jesus in the Old Testament.

Values That Last
Sundays, 11:10 AM  /  Fellowship Hall 
Do you think our society is in a period of moral decline? Have we abandoned the moral truth that has guided us for generations?  This series explains why biblical values (responsibility, trust, self-control, respect, forgiveness, moral purity, fairness, honesty and love)  must define our lives.  In a time where tolerance is valued more than truth, these values help us to rebuild on God’s foundation.

Sundays, 11:10 AM  /  Room 206
Today in many science classes, children are taught natural selection and evolution. How ought we to respond as believers? This 6-8 week course will address the ongoing conversation about creation vs. evolution. Although this is a huge topic, we will focus on key subjects that are central to apologetics. We’ll review a recent debate between a creationist and an atheist, and discuss the perspectives of a leading Christian scientist. In addition, we will explore Genesis 1 and 2, and other key scriptures that give glory to God’s creation and bring meaning to our role in His universe. Please come join us.

Marriage With Purpose
Sundays, 9;30 AM  /  Room 203  /  Beginning Sept. 17
Our culture would have us believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; and that marriage does not mean ’til death do us part, but merely for as long as our needs are being met. But are these beliefs right? Based off of Tim Keller’s outstanding work, The Meaning of Marriage, this six-week class will explore the meaning of marriage from a distinctly Biblical perspective, offering insight and hope for a thriving relationship.

Young Adults/College Age
