New Sunday Studies

Core Series: Being A True Man | 9:30 & 11am | Life Center 210/212
(Beginning June 2-August 11)

Led by Tom Lunzman (9:30am) and Waylon Lesly (11am). Join Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees, the Acho Brothers, Propaganda, a former Navy Seal and many others in 10 thought-provoking sessions focused on real people, facing real life challenges. This study is for men interested in real connections with other men, permission to be real, confidence in who he is, and a vision for his purpose in this life.

LIVING LIFE TOGETHER | 9:30 & 11AM | LIFE CENTER 215/217 (BEGINNING JULY 21-AUGUST 11)

Led by Katy Keeling & Sarah Watson (9:30am) and Erica Gremillion & Victoria Weaver (11am).  Author and speaker Shauna Niequist is passionate about living life in community. In four intimate sessions, she walks through Scripture, challenging women to step out of isolation and fear and pursue relationships rooted in rest, grace, and reconciliation. As you learn the benefits of living an authentic life with others in Christ and watch real-life stories of women who have experienced freedom in meaningful community, you will discover why God designed and delights in relationships. 

Ongoing Sunday Studies

bible stories for adults | 9:30am | life center 214/216

 Led by Kurt Rosenhagen. Bible Stories for Adults is your opportunity to become reacquainted with the Biblical characters and events that Christians have come to love.  There is much we can learn about God as He reveals Himself through His-Story.

Deuteronomy: A Farewell to a new generation | 8am | Life Center 210

Led by Gary Himmler & Richard Zalesak. Deuteronomy is the key to the entire Hebrew Bible. It's the bridge between the stories of Exodus and Numbers, the law in Leviticus, and the narratives in Joshua, 1 and 2 Samuel & 1 and 2 Kings. All of the Bible before Deuteronomy has been, in a narrative sense, leading up to the Israelites entering the Promised Land. They've fought, been enslaved, seen God's fire, messed up, died, and been given the law.

Now, in Deuteronomy, they're on the edge of the Promised Land, so close to their goal. But don't get too excited - Moses, their leader, makes them take a really long pause. He wants them to take a deeper breath to reflect on where they've been (and think about what's to come). What better way to do that than by retelling the story?

We will study the book of Deuteronomy because we are on a journey, much like the Israelites. By comparing what Moses told the Israelites with the teachings of Jesus, we will also be able to reflect on where we've been and think about what's to come as we prepare to enter our Promised Land.

The Acts of the Holy Spirit | 11am | Life Center 214/216

Led by Keith Chuvala. The New Testament book commonly titled "Acts" or "The Acts of the Apostles", is a fascinating, instructive, and inspiring book. But it might be misnamed! It doesn't describe all of the actions of all of the Apostles, so it could be titled "Some of the Acts of a Subset of the Apostles", or perhaps "The Acts of Peter and Paul, with cameos by a few other Apostles". However, the Apostles are really the stars of the show. As the book reveals the tremendous power of God at work through His Gospel, perhaps the best title is "The Acts of the Holy Spirit". Join us as we read this book together, seeing how God established, blessed, and preserved His church, and discover how many issues faced by the first century church are still faced by the church today.

Mid-Week Men's Studies

Thessalonians & Timothy |  Tuesdays | 6:45-8am  |  Life Center 214/216
(Beginning March 12th)

Led by our Ron Petri. 1 and 2 Thessalonians contain much of the material we have from Paul about the Second Coming. Paul expresses his relief and joy at the progress the new converts are making despite their lack of teaching. He then goes on to instruct them about the life of holiness they ought to be leading as they await the return of Jesus.

1 and 2 Timothy have been viewed as manuals for the church structure and order. Its value is not so much in trying to determine church structure, but in determining the character of people who ought to be in leadership.

Mid-Week Women's Studies

A study on the book of acts | Wednesdays | 9:30 & 11am | Life Center 212 & 217
(beginning June 5-August 7)

Led by Mary Fricke. We will be reading our Bibles with a study on the book of Acts using Bible Pathway Devotional guide. The book of Acts, sometimes called the fifth Gospel, is a continuation of the Gospel of Luke. The book of Acts is remarkable in many ways. It is a bridge between the Gospels and the Epistles
