Talking Through the Peter Texts

Sundays, September  9 – November 11
9:30 AM  | Room 201
Instructor: Dr. Oliver Blosser

Peter was one of the original twelve apostles and is known as “the apostle of hope.”  Shortly before his death, he wrote two epistles to Jewish believers suffering persecution for their faith.  In his first epistle, Peter offers the details of God’s sovereignty: the Father elected us, the Spirit sanctified us and the Son redeemed us. Then he gives the duties of saved saints, speaks of the discipline of suffering and the delights in serving the LORD. In his second epistle, Peter stresses the importance of growing in grace and in the full knowledge of our LORD Jesus, the Messiah.  Peter speaks of many glorious doctrinal facts presented in the Word of God such as the transfiguration of the Son of God, the inspiration of the Word of God and annihilation of the present world of God.  What an exciting study this will be.  Plan to join us!

Current Events and Prophecy

Sundays, October 7 & December 2
9:30 AM  | Gym
Instructor: Dennis Lingo

In Mark 13:37 Jesus said, “What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’” But what exactly are we to watch for? Jesus and the prophets told us of events that would be happening in the future as the 2nd Advent drew near.  Is it possible that this generation is witnessing many of these events that were foretold?  Let’s discuss these things using our Bibles and today’s headlines as we “encourage each other with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:18)

The Evangelism Toolbox

Sundays, October 28-November 18
9:30 AM  |  Room 106
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen

One of the incredible privileges God gives us is the opportunity to introduce people to Jesus.  It is one of the best gifts we can give anyone and yet we often pause before talking about Jesus because we are not sure what to do and are afraid to “fail”.  Join us as we study God’s heart for all people and how we can personally and effectively be a witness for Jesus, so others will know the hope and joy we already have found through a faith relationship with Jesus Christ.

God’s Vision for His Church

Sundays, December 2-December 16
9:30 AM  |  Room 201
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen

The Bible speaks of the Church as the “bride of Christ” and He loves it dearly.  We are the Church and it is important to know what the Bible teaches about the Church and its purpose.

The world desperately needs the Church to be healthy and strong because its impact is meant to be world-changing.  Join us as we study and discuss this important part of our faith life.
