20 SOMETHINGS (anyone post high school to 29)
Teacher: Joel Jessen
Theme: Attributes of God
Christians are called to be in a relationship with God. In order to grow in that relationship, we need to have a better understanding of who He is and what He is like. This class will look through the Scriptures to better understand and delight in the glory of God.
Teacher: Chuck Jessen
Theme: The Book of Jonah
The next quarter for the Bible Class will be a study on "The Prodigal Prophet: Jonah and the Mystery of God's Mercy" using as a resource the Tim Keller book by that title. "An angry prophet. A feared and loathsome enemy. A devastating storm....and a merciful God."
EQUIPPING MEN FOR SERVICE
Teachers: Ronnie Smith & Scott Deneen
Theme: Galatians w/ Joni Erickson Tada
The Galatians had enjoyed the incredible freedom that Jesus gives us. However, "religious" people had joined the Galatian fellowship, claiming to have deeper knowledge from the ancient Scriptures, claiming to have a bigger picture than the simple good news that they had heard.
Teachers: Ron Ensley, Rick Herd, Jimmie and Martha Sue Mitchell
Theme: Gospel of John
Join us as we study the Gospel of John - the marvelous facts of Christ's life, death, and resurrection; stories of God's grace in the lives of ordinary people; reminders of how God is working in our own lives.
Teacher: Dan King
Theme: The Gospel of Mark
This careful study of the Gospel of Mark will be guided by Timothy Keller's book King's Cross which the class will read together. At a time when interest in Jesus has never been higher, Dr. Keller takes a deep and thought-provoking look at the life of Christ. The class will discover how Jesus' identity as king and his purpose in dying on the cross have meaning and signficance not only for us as individuals but also on a cosmic scale.
Teachers: Suzy Deneen, Teresa Neely, Sherry Wagstaff, Cathy Rhyne
Theme: Wednesday's Word w/ Paul Tripp
Paul Tripp is a pastor, event speaker and best selling author whose driving passion is to connect the transforming power of Jesus Christ to everyday life.

The class will use the devotionals and discussion questions provided to probe more deeply and consider how we can bridge the gap between Biblical truth and the circumstances we experience daily.
