Gospel in Life by Tim Keller, led by Renee Kohagen Room A-206
Join us for this eight-session course on the gospel and how to live it out in all of life—first in our hearts, then in community, and ultimately out into the world. 
The course begins with the theme of the city, our home now, and closes the course with the theme of the eternal city, our heavenly home. In between we will look at how the gospel changes our hearts, changes the community, and changes how we live in the world. 
 
Contenders: Making the Case for Life   Room E-209
Many people think abortion is a serious problem, but few can make a compelling case for life. Join Dr. Marc Newman, a national pro-life speaker trainer, as he shows you how to defend life. In this five-session course you will learn to make the scientific, moral, and biblical case for life, and how to overcome key objections to the pro-life position. You will also learn how the ideas that are used to support abortion advocacy place us all at risk, and what you can do about it.
 
How to Study Led by Jennifer Finchum Room A-103
1/12 - Basic Essentials in How to Study the Bible
1/19 - How to Use Free Online Study Tools 
This two-session study will be excellent for equipping teachers and leaders of life groups as well as anyone wanting to be better able to study God’s Word. This class will be offered again March 2nd and 9th.
 
Elijah led by Jana Chapman Room E-219
Ladies, join Priscilla Shirer in a seven-session bible study on the life of Elijah. In this faith-building study, you’ll discover how Elijah’s obedience to God kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven’s fire to fall. God is also working in our lives today to fashion a fiery, bold faith that will empower us to share the hope of Christ with our family, friends, co-workers, and community.
 
The Holy Spirit led by Shirley Turner Room C-311
In this six-session study in the Book of Galatians, Paul challenges us to “keep in step” with the Spirit. Not only do we need to learn how to keep in step individually, but we also need to learn how to do this as a unit as well. When we receive Christ, the Holy Spirit indwells us, and He sets the line and pace for us to follow. We need to learn how to be sensitive to His voice, listen for His commands, heed His warnings, and follow closely after Him. Now is the time to “take a step” to “keep in step”!
 
Divorce Care led by Chris and Sarah Gordon Room B-210
This thirteen-session program offers Biblically based teaching, activities, and support to encourage healing.  Whether you are in the process of divorce, or it’s been years ago and you are still struggling, DivorceCare helps you face those challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  According to recent statistics, there is a divorce in America every 13 seconds. This equates to 277 per hour, 6,646 per day.  In the time it takes for a couple to recite their wedding vows (about 2 minutes) nine divorces will have taken place.  Yet, separation and divorce are some of the most painful and stressful experiences people ever have to face.  It’s a confusing time filled with isolation, bitterness, and lots of questions.  It can even affect mental and physical health.
 
Walking through Acts led by Misty Hedrick E-210
Walk through the book of Acts verse by verse in this ten-session Bible study. Discover the origins of the church, how a small group of Jesus-followers turned the world upside down spreading the hope and love of Christ throughout the world, and what that means for you today. All you need is your Bible and a note pad.
 
Functional Fitness led by Lisa Strobridge C-304
This class will help people understand the benefits of functional fitness so that they can increase or maintain their independence in performing everyday activities such as bathroom visits, carrying their groceries, lifting their child/grandchild, and getting up off the ground.  This training helps people move more and move better using functional fitness, roots the necessity to move well in Biblical principles, and helps people understand why movement, functional fitness, and overall wellness are integral to God’s plan for our lives. This class is for adults of any age. Wear clothes that you can exercise in. More details will be provided in the first meeting. This class will have twelve-sessions.
