Winter/Spring Semester Life Groups
Wednesdays, 6:30pm – 8:15pm
"Job" by Lisa Harper | Susie Taylor | January 9- February 20 | 6:30pm-8:15pm | B202 | Women’s Class
Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. In this 7-session e-book study, discover the redemptive facet of Job’s suffering. Learn to view pain as a way to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and trust in the Lord. Because His providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you. Join us Wednesday evenings at 6:30PM beginning January 9th.
Learn the Bible | Bruce & Nancy Townsend | January 9-May 8 | 6:30pm-8:15pm | 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 email@example.com or 858-8624.

This class is a video session, hosted by Dr. Howard G. Hendricks, internationally known as a trailblazing Christian educator who practices what he preaches.

The 7 Laws of a Teacher class will be a 7-week series. To sign up for the class or for more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 858-8624.
Thursday, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Maximum Marriage by: Tommy Nelson | Steve & Harriet Byrd | January 10-March 28 | 7:00-8:30pm | Home Group
During his 11-week video series, we will find that the Bible teaches that healthy marriages and families are based on the nature and character of God. The Bible charges man with exercising a loving and sacrificial leadership of his wife. Tommy Nelson will set forth these principles of biblical headship and explains what they look like in everyday terms. He then describes the qualities of The Fairer Sex and how a woman can find fulfillment and divine approval in her respectful submission to her husband and service to her family. We also see that God has spoken with almost embarrassing clarity on the subject of the sexual relationship in marriage. In Sanctified Sexuality, Tommy presents practical counsel to married couples on how to have a fulfilling sexual relationship in marriage. And for Singles, in The Art of Singlehood, we see that the plans for a healthy marriage and future family are laid down while we are single. We also find helpful guidance on those particularly difficult areas of conflict resolution (The Rules of Engagement), how to have healthy relationships with in-Laws (The Ins and Outs of In-Laws) and money management (Mates and Money). This series will prove to be a great resource for personal or group study on marriage and the family. For more information or to register please call 858-8624 or Harriet Byrd at (505)263-7844.
Tuesday Morning Women’s Bible Studies
Acts | Nancy Williams | January 8th - April 23rd | 9:30am-11:30am | B202
Ladies, please join us Tuesday mornings for a verse-by-verse study of the book of Acts. We will learn about the early Church, the challenges they faced, and how God used them mightily to spread the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Allow Acts to encourage you to walk more closely with God so that you might make Christ’s name known with the boldness and zeal of the apostles. The only book you need for this study is your Bible.
Psalm 23 by Jennifer Rothschild | Maryann Bassett and Shara McBee | March 19th - April 30th | 9:30am-11:30am | B206
A seven-week Bible study by Jennifer Rothschild will help change our whole understanding of God’s love and care for us. Psalm 23 is a spiritual lullaby that our Shepherd sings over us in every season of life as we learn to walk confident that our Shepherd guides us. In this study we’ll spend time daily in our workbook, meet weekly to review what God’s revealed in our lesson, and then watch Jennifer’s video. Join us for a wonderful study and time of fellowship with others. The book will be available in the bookstore for purchase.
The Key to Living by Faith (Continuation) by Kay Arthur and Pete De Lacy | Julanie Lee | January 8th - March 5th | 9:30am-11:30am | B206
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 Testaments. 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 two-part study will be offered for 9 weeks in the Spring. About 3 hours of homework each week is required.
Resolving Everyday Conflict by Ken Sande & Kevin Johnson | JoAnn Polk and Della Bassman | Disciple Care Ministry | March 19th - May 7th | 9:30am-11:30am | B204
Our God calls us to a ministry of reconciliation, peace, and unity. If you are a human, you cannot escape conflict- it’s everywhere! But is conflict really a bad thing when God uses it to mature us into Christ’s image? When we handle our conflicts in a godly way, our relationships are strengthened, unity abounds, and we demonstrate Christ’s reconciling.
