THURSDAYS, 9:30 AM – VESSELS OF THE WORD
STUDY: WOMEN IN THE BIBLE
Grow Track Room | Jan Mingee and Joy Biggers

In today’s world, we are dealing, not only with complex personal matters, but also with circumstances in our nation that may cause us to be anxious and troubled. These circumstances call for a more profound knowledge of the Word of God—a personal, in-depth knowledge that will build our faith and our ability to combat life’s storms. Our mind is often the battlefield, but the battle is the Lord’s! We hope you will join us as we study together.

MIDWEEK MOMS
Mezzanine 8 | Ashley Wilkinson, Kellie Donaway, Emily Wilson

Moms, we see you! We all share common struggles, and each season of motherhood holds new opportunities and challenges. We want to embrace moms in every season of momming, to make real connections and friendships while growing in their relationship with God in a safe and supportive environment. There is joy and victory in surrendering our struggles to Jesus and asking Him for the power to keep going!

NEW
! WHAT’S NEXT by Chris Hodges

If you have completed GrowTrack, this is your NEXT STEP! When you get stuck in a spiritual rut, do you wonder, “How can I get back on track? What should I do next?” Our journeys toward a deeper faith and finding joy in a close relationship with Christ last our entire life and have plenty of obstacles and bumps along the way. Hodge’s practical guide can help! Revealing four steps to Christian maturity, he shows how knowing God, finding freedom, discovering purpose, and making a difference will lead to a deeper relationship with your heavenly Father.

NEW
! THE ART OF MARRIAGE
(The perfect community for imperfect couples.)
Family Life Center - Media Center | Trevor and Karen Booker

Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives. Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form- challenging to master but definitely worth the effort. This class includes weekly group discussion prompts, date night ideas, and questions and discussion topics so you can learn from your peers’ experiences while figuring out what works for your relationship.

NEW!

Designed for business owners, this small group class explores how the Christian faith is lived out in the global marketplace. Together, we'll challenge traditional assumptions and reimagine business practices to align with God's agenda. Join us for networking, discussions, and practical strategies to integrate faith into our work lives. Let's glorify God through our professional endeavors and make a positive impact in the world.

Wednesday Support Groups @ 6:30PM

DIVORCECARE
Portable 26 | Jim and Dorene Royal, Study Guide $20

If you, or someone you know, have experienced separation or divorce, this class can bring hope, give you the tools to move on, and let you know that you are not alone. The course deals with anger, depression, forgiveness, and financial survival, to name a few. Each class stands alone so that one may join at any point. Please sign up at divorcecare.org.

GRIEFSHARE
Grow Track Room | Teresa Swann, Shawn Stemm, Study Guide $20

GriefShare is a special place for people to interact with others who also are grieving the loss of someone close, led by people who know what you feel. Each session includes a video seminar, discussion, and prayer. As each session is a separate topic for healing, you are welcome to start any week. Please sign up at GriefShare.org.

ANGER MANAGEMENT
Mezzanine 4 | Facilitators: Ioni Castillo, Cynthia Foster, Alex Ogle, Study Guide $20

Everyone gets angry - whether it is directed inward or vented on another. An unhealthy approach to anger is harmful to you and your relationships. This support group will work through understanding the difference and include regular speakers on sources of anger and paths to healing. This group is suitable for anyone, as it clarifies our boundaries, and the lies we believe about ourselves and others while focusing on hope and healing in Christ.

SOUL – SURVIVORS OF UNTIMELY LOSS
Mezzanine 6 | Terri Johnson

For a survivor of a suicide loss, the journey through grief is difficult due to feelings of guilt, awkward encounters with those who do not understand the depth of the loss, and dealing with the stigma surrounding suicide. If you are a survivor of a suicide loss, please join our SOUL Support Group, for weekly conversations toward hope and healing with fellow survivors. Together, we can encourage, support, and pray for one another. The door opens at 6 PM for fellowship!

FIT-4-LIFE – Natural Health Class

All ages welcome.

WALKING IN THE WORD – “Why, God?”
Mezzanine Room 1 | Bobby and Leesha Whitfield

You have heard it said many times, “Why, God?” This class will explore questions that have been nagging at you for a long time. In the class “Why, God?” we will share solid, biblical, logical answers to satisfy the honest doubts that every believer experiences. Our prayer is that you will be equipped with Biblically thought-through arguments that will help you share your faith with those who are curious about Christianity.

CLASE BIBLICA EN ESPAÑOL
Family Life Center - Room 104 | Sala De Oración - Maestros: Carlos Castillo

La Palabra de Dios es rica en bendiciones, nos guía, redarguye, 0alienta, nos prepara, nos da todas las herramientas necesarias para vivir nuestra vida agradando a Dios. Sin la Biblia andamos a ciegas en la vida actual. Tenemos que vivir una realidad ahora, pero con una perspectiva real…conociendo a Dios a través de la Biblia.
Te invitando en familia a estudiar juntos la Sagrada Escrituras.

THE WORD FOR ALL AGES
Chapel | Dorene Royal
FROM PAPYRUS TO PAGES – How we got our Bible.

You have held a Bible, but have you considered the journey that it has taken to have the written Word of God in your hand? Join us for the journey from the first written word on parchment, to the first bound codex, to the gold-leafed pages and the electronic Bible apps that we have today. In our class, we will dig up amazing discoveries with archeologists to support the inerrancy of this sacred book (virtually with video of course!). The Bible is the inspired Word of God, written by human hands, and passed on for thousands of years; join us as we travel with it through time!
All ages welcome.


PATHWAYS
Mezzanine 8 | Richard Cooke

Faith is more than a belief system; it infuses all parts of life. Our faith is seen in how we live our day-to-day lives: what we do, talk about, and respond to circumstances. God’s Word, the Bible, has an answer for every situation that we face. Join us each week for exciting topics and subjects, lively discussions, group participation, and a particular prayer time with great people. Our goals and desires are to help you discover God’s direction for your life!
All adult ages welcome.


GOOD NEWS
Family Life Center Room 104 | Esther Haas

The books of 1, 2, and 3 John are believed to have been written by the apostle John – also known as the “disciple Jesus loved.” John's writing's repetitive, cyclical nature was intended to emphasize two key ideas: God is light and love. Over the next several weeks, we will discuss these essential principles of Christian faith and practice.

LIFE IN THE WORD
Family Life Center Room 118 | Mike and Charlotte Fiddelke

If you are looking for a Sunday school class that offers Bible study, lively group discussion, in-home socials, and friendship that moves past the superficial, this may be the class for you. This winter, we will study the book of Proverbs. We aim to grow spiritually and make a difference for Christ in our sphere of influence. If you think Bible study is tedious, we invite you to visit us and find out how relevant and exciting God’s Word is.
All ages welcome.


SCRIPTURAL ENRICHMENT
Family Life Center Room 116 | Dr. Michael VanDoren

This class offers in-depth Bible instruction from a former SEU professor, everyday life application, and creative discussion. Our class is friendly, as we believe in supporting, encouraging, and praying for one another. You will be kept updated with newsletters and an e-blast. We will continue with the Book of Romans in 2024.

GROWTRACK
Grow Track Room | Teaching Team

GrowTrack is a three-week experience for anyone interested in taking the next step in their journey with God.
