    Morning Studies

    Monday Mornings, 6:30–7:30 AM

    Room 242  |  Dave Wentink

    This study in the book of Ephesians teaches how to live a Spirit-filled life, discover how to overcome sin, integrate the Word into everyday life, be a better witness to others, and fulfill the plan God has designed for you!

    Minor Prophets
    June 5 – August 28
    Conference Room A (4th Floor)  |  Tom Miller
    This verse-by-verse study will examine the five early minor prophets: Joel, Jonah, Amos, Hosea, and Micah. We will see vivid pictures of God's coming judgment with warnings and calls for repentance, as well as His immeasurable mercy, grace, and love. This message is especially relevant to our lives today.

    Tuesday Mornings, 6:30–7:30 AM

    Gospel of John — Study resumes in September
    Room 306  |  Bill Harding
    We all long for a full, rich, satisfying life. But how do we fill up the empty places in our soul? How can we quench our thirst for something deeper, more lasting, more meaningful? John urges us to take a fresh look at Jesus and invites us to renew our faith in the One who promises to be the way of true life.

    Detours Bible Study
    Stone Crest Chick Fil A  |  Jeffrey Arrington & Sy Pugh
    Join us for this powerful study by Tony Evans that examines the life of Joseph as he endures trials, injustice, and even betrayal. Believers will ultimately find comfort and encouragement as we learn to trust in God's redemptive plan and sovereign will. Newcomers welcome!

    Evening Study

    Thursdays, 7:00–8:30 PM

    Understanding Biblical Prophecy
    Summer Dates:  June 8 & 22  //  July 13 & 27  //  August 10 & 24
    Room 227  |  Brian Cooper

    How do we make sense of biblical prophecy in 2017? In our continuing study of the Old Testament prophetic books, we will focus on Isaiah. We'll also look at Kings and Chronicles to help us understand historically the prophecies and messages delivered by God through His spokesmen. These passages will reveal God's faithfulness, love, grace, and sovereignty. Sessions will include videos, helpful illustrations, and charts.
