Class Schedule and Locations

Sundays 10:15 – 11:00AM

Psalm 119 | Led by Eddie and Teri Capparucci, Room 204.

With its 176 verses, it is the longest chapter of the bible and it provides us with some of the most inspirational Scripture found in the Bible. Using materials from Matt Chandler (Lead Teaching Pastor of the Village Church in Dallas/Ft Worth) we will see that The Scriptures reflect God’s nature, and from them we learn that we can trust His character and His plan and purposes for mankind, even when those plans include affliction and persecution.

The Gospel of John | Led by Carolyn Waters, Room 209.

Though the Gospel of John has so often been used to introduce non-Christians to Christ because of its easy-to-understand language and style, there is much more to the book. The simplicity of its style conceals a complexity and depth unmatched in the New Testament. John takes simple concepts such as light, bread and water and illuminates them with the most profound truths the world has ever known (Richard Bewes).

Gospel of Luke | Led by Mary-Evelyn Starnes, Room 201.

Come join us as we walk through Luke’s telling of the birth, ministry, atonement, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Luke the Evangelist, the companion of Paul writes with the intent to lead his reader to certainty through an orderly account “of the events that have been fulfilled among us.”

How to Read the Bible for All It’s Worth | Led by Hubie & Terri Mann, Room 208.

Have you ever been confused or struggled to understand something that you read in the Bible?  Guess what…you’re NOT alone!  Understanding the Bible isn’t just for the few, the gifted, the scholarly.  It’s meant to be read and comprehended by all Christians and this class will help you to do just that.   Topics to be covered will include:  Learning how to interpret different types of Biblical writings (History, Epistles, Gospels, Law, Prophecy, Poetry, etc.), the critical importance of context (historical, cultural, and literary context), how to use Bible study aids (Concordances, Lexicons, Bible Dictionaries, Commentaries, etc.), and a whole lot more.  This class will revolutionize the way that you read and understand the Bible!

 

Wednesdays 6:30-7:30PM

Shadows of the Reality | Led by Pastor Aaron Moore, Room 208.

A detailed look at how the Old Testament Ceremonial Law is revealed and fulfilled in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; AND what it means for His followers. If you love discovering Christ in the Old Testament, or seeing the Old Testament come alive in the work of Christ, you will love studying Hebrews.

The Gospel of John | Led by Carolyn Waters, Room 209.

Though the Gospel of John has so often been used to introduce non-Christians to Christ because of its easy-to-understand language and style, there is much more to the book. The simplicity of its style conceals a complexity and depth unmatched in the New Testament. John takes simple concepts such as light, bread and water and illuminates them with the most profound truths the world has ever known (Richard Bewes).
