Sundays 9:30 AM

Tclase Biblica En Español
Edificio en la Capilla Chapel
Maestros: Carlos Suárez, Yavet Morales y Héctor Acevedo
El poder de nuestras palabras puede hacer mucho más de lo que imaginamos. Y como Dios puede bendecir su vida a través de las palabras que usted y yo hablamos. Basados en el libro del Pastor Robert Morris “El poder de sus palabras”, estaremos explorando a través de la Biblia cuán importante tienen nuestras palabras. “El temor” cuan importante es y beneficioso es nuestro diario vivir cristiano. Nuestra formación al temor nos puede llevar a una vida fructífera como la falta del temor a una vida de fracaso. Te esperamos a compartir estos y otros temas en tu idioma en español. “Del fruto de la boca del hombre se llenará su vientre; Se saciará del producto de sus labios.” Proverbios 18:20 (RVR 1995)

Faithful Followers
FLC Room 116
Teachers: Paul & Karen Wallace
This class alternates between the study of the New and Old Testament. A discussion format is used, with an emphasis on relating biblical truths to everyday life. Many of the class members are actively involved in different church ministries, outreaches, and missions trips. We also have small groups meeting in members’ homes, which allows for the building and strengthening of relationships. All ages welcome.

WALKING IN THE WORD (NEW)
Mezzanine Room 4
Teachers: Bobby & Leesha Whitfield
“Walking in the Word” is an exciting class that appeals to all ages; both couples and singles. We use the truth of God’s Word to explore relevant topics facing Christians today. Among these are relationship issues, practical application to Spiritual truths, and answers to everyday problems. Join us as we grow in the Lord and enjoy great fellowship each Sunday morning. All ages welcome.

Women of Grace
Mezzanine Room 3
Teacher: Tammy Harris
We will study The Perfect You by Dr. Caroline Leaf. This study takes you through seven steps to rediscover and unlock your unique “you quotient” – the brilliantly original way each person thinks, feels, relates, and makes choices – freeing you from comparison, envy, and jealousy, which destroys brain tissue. You’ll learn to be aware of what’s going on in your mind and body, to lean into your experience, rather than trying to forcefully change it, and to redefine what success means to you. Released from the suffocating box of expectations, you’ll embrace your true identity and develop a clear sense of divine purpose in your life. Dr. Caroline Leaf is a cognitive neuroscientist with a PhD in Communication Pathology. Study guide/journal is $16.

Living By Faith
Mezzanine Room 5
Teachers: Frank & Sonji Kendrick
Faith is a journey based on the promises of God. Has God said it, and shall He not also perform it? God’s promises are sure, but in order to take possession of His promises, we must first know and receive them, and believe and act on them. This season, our class will walk with the children of Israel, beginning with Abraham, from the Promise to the Passover, from the Red Sea to the Wilderness, and from the Jordan through Jericho. We will discover that our lives take similar paths through Red Seas and Wildernesses. We will cherish the fact that God brings us out, to take us in, while many still die in the wilderness. Do you feel like you’ve got Pharaoh behind you and a Red Sea in front of you? Do you feel like you’ve been wandering around obstacles for 40 years that should have only taken 11 days? Do you feel like, just when things have gotten better, impenetrable walls show up? If so, then come discover how God always leads us to Victory.

Our Christian Heritage
Mezzanine Room 8
Teacher: Dr. Doug & Sandy Roth
We are beginning our next unit on the kings and prophets of Israel and Judah in a comprehensive and chronological Old Testament survey study. Our goal is to help you understand God’s story as it seamlessly reveals His redemption plan and His promised Messiah. We are intentional about discipleship, and have created an atmosphere where discussion and friendships are nurtured and celebrated! All are welcome.
