FALL QUARTER STUDIES
Below are the studies that each community will be focusing on this quarter. Updates and changes will be in the Courier (printed newsletter) and the E-Courier (online newsletter found on the News page). Note that there will be NO SBS on December 22 or 29.
Location: Worship Center, Room 201 (Choir Room)
Topic: Finishing Our Course with Joy
Teacher: Bruce Creswell
Getting older doesn’t imply “take it easy”. It does mean we continue to run the race and finish well to the glory of God. By looking at various resources, we will study what it means to finish well and how we are to do it. This is not only for seniors but for those who care for them and those who will become them.
Location: Worship Center, Room 211
Topic: Minor Prophets
Teacher: David Abernathy
When God told Hosea “Set the trumpet to your lips!” he was describing what all the prophets of Israel were to do as they warned Israel about the consequences of repeated and habitual sin. In this class we will survey the Minor Prophets of the Old Testament to see how they carried out this command. We will look at their historical background, the central elements of the distinct message each one brought, and the ways they each contribute to the overall Biblical testimony. We will also pay attention to how the Minor Prophets are cited and applied in important passages of the New Testament. Join Young Seniors as we enjoy excellent fellowship and teaching.
Community: Also called Sojourners, these are people who have college-aged children, the Young Pros community & 18/22 community will meet together
Location: Community Life Center (CLC) Room 5 & 6
Topic: The mystery of the gospel in a world of cultural conflicts and intolerance.
Teacher: Jose Portillo
This class will examine the biblical basis and calling to truly love our neighbors, in the midst of a world wrestling with cultural tensions and conflicts. It will look at Jesus' model of loving people through personal knowledge of them and their lives, and show how the entirety of scripture gives us this model. Come and be challenged and encouraged by the gospel's call to love Jew and Gentile, Greek and Hebrew, as we see God's eternal perspective for His creation.
Community: Parents of middle school and high school students
Location: Community Life Center (CLC), Rooms 3 & 4
Topic: Miracles and Parables…Then and Now
Teacher: Dr. Blair Smith, JR Biggs, Zach Fulginiti and others
The Student Families community will continue a study of Jesus' Miracles and Parables and what they mean for us in today's world. We will be led by a team of teachers including Dr. Blair Smith, JR Biggs, Zach Fulginiti and others as we explore a new passage each week from the Gospels.
Location: Community Life Center (CLC), Rooms 1 & 2
Topic: 1 Peter
Teacher: Pastor Derek Wells
There is probably no figure in scripture that captures our attention more than the Apostle Peter. After all, his life embodies all the ups and downs of the spiritual life. As he followed Christ, Peter learned much in the way of how godly character is formed. We find this knowledge unpacked in his epistle to the early church. How does the Lord shape us in the midst of trials and suffering, to live as the people of God? Come join the Young Families community as we explore this question and learn the character of godliness in the book of 1 Peter.
Community: Senior high school
Location: Youth Center (lower level of CLC)
Topic: Eschatology: What we believe about tomorrow and how it shapes today
Teachers: Pastor Stewart Neely
Living as a faithful Christian today requires living with confident expectation in the things that God has promised us tomorrow. In this series, we will teach through what the Bible promises concerning the future.
Community: Middle School
Location: Youth Center (lower level of CLC)
Topic: Christ in all things
Teachers: David Chambers & Becky Creswell
The book of Colossians was written to a small backwoods church, and yet it contains some of the biggest truths about Christ. This Fall we will work through Colossians verse by verse focusing on the nature of Christ, His preeminence in all things, and how we should then live because of these truths.
Location: Worship Center, Room 105
