New: The five Love languages in Foundation Bible study

Dates: Sunday mornings, November 17 to December 15, from 9:30-10:30 a.m.

Location: Fellowship Hall


You'll love our new five-week study starting November 17! You may have heard of the Five Love Languages framework, or even taken the free online quiz to discover your own top "love language."


In our newest Foundation series, we'll look at God's Word in relation to love.


As Christians, we're called to show love in every relationship, and to our neighbor. Over the weeks ahead, we'll discuss more than marriage or sexual love; we'll also talk about what godly love looks like in comparison to what the world may teach us.


Foundation Bible study meets weekly on Sunday mornings and rotates discussion-based topical all year.

New: Christ at work study begins oct. 20

Begins: October 20, 10 weeks

Location: North Campus school room 7

This ten-week Bible class equips those in the workplace to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Our mission is faith for work – and our vision is leadership for life.

Living Way BIble Study: Gospel of John

Dates: September 11, 2019 through May, 2020

Times: Weekly on Wednesday mornings or Thursday evenings

Register online, on the sign-up sheets in the lobby, or call the church office.


Living Way is a weekly in-depth Bible study where participants begin in a large group, break into small discussion groups, and gather together for a closing lecture led by our pastors.


The Gospel of John preserves and teaches the story of Jesus with tremendous clarity and force. Often using simple words, John conveys complex truths. John 3:16, the so-called “Gospel in a nutshell,” summarizes the Christian faith well. It leaves us pondering the relationship of the Father and the Son, the uniqueness of Jesus, the meaning of faith, the threat of judgment, the blessing of eternal life, and the mystery of God’s love.


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


On Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m., men and women gather in a single small group in the conference room; Thursday’s Pastor-led closing lecture is a recording of the Wednesday morning lecture. Childcare available upon request

Foundation 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, and each class kicks off with the pastor's or vicar's conversation-starter questions. Previous study topics have included: change, community, the Sabbath, Godly leadership, Heaven, gossip, angels and demons, wrestling with God, Bible translations, comparative religion, church/state, and mercy. 


CHRIST AT WORK

Beginning October 20, this 10-week course equips people to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and empowers leaders in a small-group Bible study setting to apply Biblical principles at work. Our mission is faith for work – and our vision is leadership for life!
