His Path to Golden Glory
Special time: 3:30–5:00 PM
Room 402 | Pastor Jim Pile
God’s path to golden glory for an older believer should be one of increasing light (Proverbs 4:18). So, how do senior adults make their “golden years” the best spiritual days of their lives? Join us and learn how to navigate practical issues and potential challenges to ensure you leave a strong legacy of faith for generations to come.


Growing in Your Faith
October 24 – November 14
Room 232 | Pastor Rob Reece
Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Therefore, it is essential that all followers of Christ are growing in their faith and striving to attain the “measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Join us as we further explore key truths and questions related to our faith. How do we approach our holy God? How can we be more discerning in a fallen world? What is really meant by obedience to God and why is it important? What are my spiritual gifts and how can I use them? This four-week session begins October 24 and is open to everyone.


Christian Ethics
Room 238 | Steven Garofalo
Our culture, including the churches, suffers from the effects of moral relativism. Thankfully, the Bible provides us with Christian ethics and morality as a prescription for how we ought to act and live our lives in light of God and others. This class will address Christian ethics in light of what the Bible says about contemporary issues ranging from sexuality to environmentalism.


Financial Peace University
Room 242 | Rhondale & Deborah Haywood
What does God’s Word say about money? This course incorporates Dave Ramsey’s biblically-based DVD curriculum with small group discussions for personal application and accountability. Registration is $93 per couple or individual—this includes a kit containing: a workbook, audio library, book, lifetime membership, and more. Register early to get course material before the first class!


Truth Your Kids Can't Live Without
Room 401 | Pastor Rodney Navey
Parents have the God-given assignment to be "disciple-makers" of their children. To fulfill this calling, we must understand the basic truths of the Christian faith and be able to explain these truths to our children.


Essentials of a Disciple-Making Pipeline
Room 237 | Pastor Nathaniel Pearce
The Great Commission calls the church to the task of “making disciples” (Matthew 28:19). The Apostle Paul proposes a multi-generational discipleship model that produces a pipeline of disciples (2 Timothy 2:2). Join us as we explore the nuts and bolts of making disciples who will make disciples.


Learning to Study the Psalms
Banquet Room | Dr. Floyd Elmore
This study will help you learn to identify and analyze various kinds of songs in the “Psalm-book.” By applying Bible study methods, you will discover truths about God’s person and power. This study will help you grow in grace as you learn more about prayer and praise, and deepen your understanding of biblical worship to live wisely in God’s presence.


Teaching & Leading Others (Men only)
Room 222 | Bill Bailey
This hands-on class will equip men to lead a small-group Bible study, pray with others, give a compelling personal testimony, prepare and deliver short devotionals and longer Bible lessons. Participants will be given opportunities to practice what they learn and receive constructive feedback, thereby gaining experience and confidence in obeying God’s command to “go and make disciples.”


The Prison Epistles
Room 233 | Pastor Jim Cashwell
This class will offer an in-depth study of Paul’s “Prison Epistles” — Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians, and Philemon. We will examine the background, theme, and theology of each of these important letters. Join us as we study Paul’s incredible passion for individuals and churches to be rooted, grounded, and growing in Christ alone.


Old Testament Prophecy: Its Place, Purpose, and God's Holistic Plan
Room 226 | Pastor Sibu Rajappan
While Old Testament prophecy is fascinating, it can also be confusing. This session will identify and explain Old Testament prophecies and covenants in their historical and grammatical context. Furthermore, we will consider how the covenants and prophecies fit together revealing God’s plan for Israel and the church.
Major Prophets of the Bible
Room 240 | Sam Speights
This overview will focus on understanding and applying prophecies and messages to modern day. Both the common and unique prophecies of each messenger of God in their chronological sequence and historical framework will be revealed. Bring your Bible and get ready for some interesting discussion.
Spanish Bible Study – Acts: The Birth and Growth of the Early Church
Room 227 |  Bill Ogden

Acts is the record of how salvation came to us, the unleashing of the Gospel, “the power of God unto salvation,” for all the world. Join us as we study the work of the Holy Spirit by many means and in many ways to launch Christ’s church throughout the Roman Empire and to the ends of the earth.  

Hechos:  El Nacimiento y Crecimiento de la Iglesia Primitiva
Hechos es la historia de cómo la salvación vino a nosotros, el desatar del evangelio, “el poder de Dios para la salvación,” de todo el mundo.  Acompáñanos en nuestro estudio acerca de la obra del Espíritu Santo, los  muchos medios y las muchas maneras que se necesitaron para difundir la iglesia de Cristo a lo largo del Imperio Romano y hasta los confines de la tierra.


Women's Bible Study – Finding God's Path Through Your Trials
