Life Groups are provided to study the Word with a specific topic in mind to further equip and cultivate a believer’s walk with Christ. Life Groups are groups that have a specific time period and seek to foster environments that cultivate discipleship, worship, and Biblical life skills for service. With a Biblical foundation in place, this series of classes is designed to further equip believers within a focused area of service.
Winter Semester Life Groups
September 5 - December 5, 2018. | Wednesdays, 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Stepping Up. | Men’s Study | Room B202
Do you want to understand who God has made you to be and how He calls you to walk as a man? Stepping Up- A Call to Courageous Manhood walks through the topic of Biblical manhood and calls every man to reject passivity and step up to lead with courage in all areas of life. This 10-session study will challenge men to strengthen bonds with each other, form godly habits, claim personal victories, share testimonies, and establish accountability.
“All Things New,” by Kelly Minter. | Women’s Bible Study | Room B209/210
This is a video-driven Bible study of 2nd Corinthians. The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth. God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever. Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead us through the letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide our hearts in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus, the old has gone, the new has come. Books can be purchased in LRC
Learn the Bible | Room B208
Learn the Bible (LTB) is a class which is designed to give both the new believer and the experienced Bible student an opportunity to study and understand the Bible as a singular, integrated message system; not simply a disjointed collection of 66 books penned by 40 authors over thousands of years. It is a fast-paced 2 semester class that will WOW you with the supernatural design that links Genesis and Revelation to everything in between in ways that you have never experienced. Start a new adventure as we dig deeper and discover the hidden and revealed messages meant for us from our Lord and Savior. This class will be based on Dr. Chuck Missler’s series, Learn the Bible in 24 Hours, and will include revealing and thought-provoking supplemental material from our own Duane and Esther Harder every session that will continue to challenge and inspire. Contact Tabitha Baker for more questions or to register at firstname.lastname@example.org 858-8624.

Tuesday Morning Women’s Bible Studies
September 4th - December 4th | Tuesdays, 9:30am-11:30am
“How Do You Live by Faith?” | Julanie Lee | Room B204
How Do You Live by Faith? by Kay Arthur and Pete De Lacy is an inductive study in the book of Hebrews. Where do you put your trust? What holds you firm in the storms of life? What hope do you have for the future? Mankind has asked these questions for thousands of years and since Abraham through today, the answer has been through faith. In this study in Hebrews, you will learn the connection between the Old and New Testament. It will encourage you and exhort you to live for Christ and establish you in the truth of Christ’s position and role in salvation. This is a two-part study that will be offered for 10 weeks in the Fall and 9 weeks in the Spring. Materials: Book, available in the bookstore
“Jeremiah” | Nancy Williams | Room B202
A nation in spiritual and moral degeneracy poised to receive divine discipline from God. Sound familiar? In Jeremiah’s time, it was Judah that had been exceedingly blessed by God and yet had turned her back on Him. Today, our nation parallels Judah in so many ways with our lack of regard for God and His Word.
Relationships: A Mess Worth Making | Joann Polk and Della Bassman | Room B214
Relationships! How do they work? What makes them healthy? Everyone has an opinion along with advice BUT what does God say about “one anothering”? If “in the beginning God” created and owns everything, doesn’t it make sense that HE owns our relationships and knows how they should function? Join us, as we study relationships Gods way and see how He steps in to help us build relationships as HE intended them to be. Book can be purchased in LRC. Please have read the first 2 chapters (14 pages) before the first session.
AWANA Clubs meet Wednesdays 6:15-8:30pm.
The name AWANA is an acronym that stands for approved workmen are not ashamed.

Our hope is that all club members will develop faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and then build on that foundation to become obedient servants of God.
