    Tuesday Morning Classes
    April 27 – June 1, 9:30 AM–Noon

    2 Timothy — Precept Upon Precept
    by Kay Arthur
    Teacher: Jackie Schaffer 
    Knowing his earthly ministry was coming to an end, the apostle Paul writes his last epistle to his closest and dearest companion, Timothy.  For some time, Paul had regarded Timothy as his son in the faith. So he is writing as a father who knows he is leaving his son; his words encourage and strengthen Timothy to be faithful to the Gospel in the face of hardship and persecution. Join us as we study to see how this message applies to all believers today as we strive to faithfully serve our Lord and Savior in times of uncertainty. Please review the first lesson before the first day of class. Purchase the required text before the first class. Order HERE

    Our Sovereign God — The Book of Ezra
    by Jeanine Vogel
    Teacher: Jan Adams 
    In a day of ungodly leadership, political unrest, and strong opposition to biblical truth, people need hope. Ezra, Zerubbabel, Zechariah, and Haggai lived in our kind of world. As you study the biblical record of their lives, the goal is that you will commit to being a woman of unshakable faith, unafraid to take action, boldly proclaiming God's truth, and watching for the mighty acts of our sovereign God. Purchase the required text before the first class. Order HERE.
