 You have heard recently of many new studies beginning in our Sunday Bible School Classes. More options will be available on Wednesday evenings, beginning SEPTEMBER 23rd:

  1. Couples Study ~ Grace Filled Marriage ~ It’s not personality or mutual interests that bring satisfaction to a marriage. It’s determined by our ability to give and receive grace. In Grace Filled Marriage, Tim and Darcy Kimmel explore what grace looks like within the marriage relationship. Find out how practicing grace can lead to more excitement and passion in your marriage. A deeper understanding of the power of grace will help your marriage thrive!


  1. Fellas’ Fellowship ~ A Man and His Design a Bible study that builds upon many of the timeless truths taught by Robert Lewis The series is designed to inspire and equip men to pursue authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ in His 33 years on earth. These sessions will explore the basic foundations of authentic manhood and God’s clear design for men. Each participant will learn the four “faces” of manhood and how to anticipate and transition through the specific seasons of life.


  1. Ladies Study ~ Jennifer Rothschild has a story for you. It’s about an unlikely couple, an unusual courtship, and an illicit affair. But the marriage didn’t end; instead, a love story began. It’s Hosea and Gomer’s love story and it is your love story. Designed to be used in partnership with the 6-week, 7-session DVD study, the workbook consists of video and conversation notes for each week’s session and five days of personal study for each of the six weeks following the introductory session. Be amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hope – hints and portents pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah. This study is also happening on Tuesday mornings for 7 weeks beginning September 8th at 9 AM. Childcare is provided.
