women's studies


    Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. | March 2, 9, 23, 30 and April 13, 20

    All women, whether single or married, are invited to our six-week nurturing program based on Titus 2:3-5.  Lessons on kindness, loving your husband and children, submission, purity, and hospitality encourage women in their daily walk with Christ. Bible Study, shared life experiences, cooking demonstrations, and practical homemaking instruction provide invaluable encouragement and lasting benefit. 

    We will meet in various homes on Thursday evenings. Past participants have shared that Apples of Gold provided real connection with other women and deepened their relationship with Christ and their family. Questions: Contact Sharon Shearman.

sunday morning


SUNDAY MORNINGS 9:30-10:30 a.m.

LOCATIONFellowship Hall

CURRENT TOPIC Mar. 12 - April 2 | "Harebrained Heresies"

  • Our discussion-based Foundation Bible study embarks on a four-part series looking at truths and falsehoods in the early Church, and how these heresies can sneak their way into our contemporary Christian culture. We'll dig into what each "-ism" is and isn't — Arianism, Nestorianism, Pelagianism, and Donatism — and the Church's response. Immensely relevant today, our look at heresies will identify doctrines that say Jesus is not fully God, that deny original sin and the need for God's grace, that invalidate Baptism, or necessitate self-denial.  

FOCUS: Foundation Bible Class gets its name from the truth that Christ is our foundation in all things. The study focuses on exploring how our foundation in Christ transforms who we are, and how we live our lives. Open discussion and questions from participants are actively encouraged. 

Previous study topics have included: change, community, the Sabbath, Godly leadership, racial inequality, Heaven, gossip, angels and demons, wrestling with God, Bible translations, comparative religion, church/state, and mercy.

living way

DATES: September 2022 - May 2023

TWO SESSIONS: Wed. mornings or Thurs. evenings

REGISTER online or by calling the church office

Format: Living Way is a weekly Bible study that allows for in-depth learning integrated in three ways: small group discussion, large-group pastor's lecture, and at-home lesson worksheets.

2022-2023 Topic: Gospel of Matthew

Matthew presents Jesus as the Christ, Israel's Messiah King and also as King of the entire world. The Gospel is closely linked with the Messianic prophecies and is a bridge between the Old Testament and New Testament. Our study will include the Beatitudes, rest in Jesus ("Come to Me, all who labor..."), and the Great Commission ("Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...").

On Wednesday mornings from 9:00-10:30 a.m., men and women participate in separate small groups, with lectures in the church Sanctuary. Childcare is available.

On Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m., men and women gather in a single small group, closing with a recording/video of the Wednesday morning pastor-led lecture.
