First Look

The Commons

What does it mean to belong? Dr. Youssef would like to share with you what it means to belong to our church family.

As you consider making Apostles your home church or joining the church through membership, First Look is your next step.

By becoming a member, you will have a pastor who will walk with you through the joys and trials of life.  Discover God’s plan and purpose for your life through finding a place of ministry where you can use your spiritual gifts and be used by God to be a witness for Him and bring glory to His name.

Please see the Sunday Bulletin or website for details on upcoming classes.

Connecting: Community or Life Stage Classes

Breakthrough Living — The Book of Romans

James Pool | Room 237 ABCD

Breakthrough Living is an extraordinary group of maturing Christians. We are continuing to study the New Testament in the order it was likely written, continuing with the book of Romans, Chapters 8-16. James Pool leads a guided participatory discussion where we all edify one another.

Family Foundations

John Whitney | Room 612

Family Foundations is mainly comprised of married couples with children from preschool to high school. The group strives to build a faith-based foundation for the development and strengthening of our individual families and church family bonds through the study of God’s Word in a sharing and participatory environment.

Family Ministries Class

Kevin Cuthbertson
Room 620-623

The Family Ministries class is designed for families of every age, from newlyweds without kids to grandparents. Our hope for this time is that we will mature as husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, and that God would use those who have walked before us to now walk beside us. Breakfast will be provided at 8:45 a.m., and the class will begin at 9:15 a.m.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kevin Cuthbertson at kcuthbertson@apostles.org.

S.A.L.T.  (Single Adults Living in Truth 40+)

Mike Glass | Room 617

Whether you’re new to Apostles or just looking to connect with our Singles community, this gathering is for you. Join with other mid-singles ages 40+ to build friendships and grow in grace. As a single adult, it can be hard to both find and build meaningful community within the church. Each week we seek to build up our community of singles as we look at key passages in the Bible to help us practically live out our faith together. Additionally, we have round table interaction along with practical biblical teaching to help everyone understand how to live out the gospel in our work, family, and friendships.

THRIVE: A Mid-Singles Community (35 and Above)

Brad Ost | Room 613

Thrive is a mid-singles class working through the Bible. Right now, we’re in the Gospel of John and sharing our lives in community. We’d love to have you come along with us as we seek to grow toward the Lord and each other in a warm and welcoming setting. Come and thrive in our community.

Women’s Group: Paul’s Early Letters

Linda McEntire, Tonja Brice, and Laurie Graffo | Room 607—610

The Apostle Paul was one of God’s greatest servants and was used to boldly proclaim the good news of the coming Kingdom of God to the world in the first century, and through Paul’s epistles, to people of all ages. Our Sunday Women’s Community will study two of Paul’s early letters: Philippians and Ephesians. These epistles are relevant for us today, as they have much to say about the nature of salvation, the nature of man, and the nature of God and His way of working in the world, and not just about a situation in a local church. As Paul encourages us in Ephesians 4:25, “Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.” All women are invited to join us for a time of study, fellowship, and service.

Learning – Study Classes with a Learning Emphasis

The Book of 2 Thessalonians

Monte Johnson | Room 611

As we study Acts and Paul’s various missionary journeys, we will pause Acts, and study the letters he wrote while on each journey to the various churches he started. We are currently in Acts chapter 16, Paul’s second missionary journey. When we finish Acts 18, the end of his second missionary journey, we will pause our study of Acts, and do a detailed study of 1 and 2 Thessalonians, and then 1 and 2 Corinthians. When finished with those studies, we’ll head back to Acts chapter 19.

The Book of Hebrews

Roger Hill | Room 242

Though Hebrews was written by God, the one who held the pen is unknown to us today. Yet the message is crystal clear. Why would we settle for anything short of the best, which is Jesus and Jesus alone? Furthermore, we should not only want the elemental principles of Christ, but we should strive for perfection in our knowledge of and relationship with Jesus. This study will greatly assist in our continued spiritual growth.

The Gospel of John

Jimmy Goolsby | Room 229 ABC

In John 20:31, the Apostle John said, “but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” The Gospel of John is about the biggest need in our lives … to see the Glory of God revealed through Jesus Christ. Join us for this in-depth study that will lead us to be in awe of Jesus Christ and worship Him — He is all we need!

The Books of Esther and Ruth: Redeemed by Christ

Baker Smith | Room 234

These books demonstrate the power of God as He brings about the blessing of many nations. Ruth was part of the human seed line of Christ. Through Esther, God saved Christ’s seed line from annihilation. Both books reveal the character of God as Redeemer. In addition, the books point to Christ as Savior. Please join us for this fascinating study of God’s sovereign hand at work to accomplish His plan for salvation.

A Historical, Cultural, and Geographical Survey of the Old Testament

Lee Holston | Room 243

Feel like you need some background on the superpowers and cultures at work in the Old Testament? Or want to know where the cities mentioned in Judges are located, for example? We’ll use maps, archaeology, and a sprinkling of original sources to fill out your understanding and appreciation of God’s powerful Word as revealed in some of the historical books and the major prophets in Scripture.

Training: Developing Life Skills

Exodus and Beyond

Tom Taylor | Room 244

From slavery and bondage to sin into the Promised Land of walking daily with Christ, we will study how God has been dwelling with His people since the beginning. God has always called them into abundant life. In Exodus and Beyond, we will see how God reveals Himself to His people.

Revival in America Today

Bobby Mitchell, Sr. | Room 239

This is a study about the decline of the American church today and what we, as Christians, can do about it. It is a story of our faith walk and how we can unite with others to make a difference. It builds on previous studies of knowing and doing God’s will, revivals and awakenings, Paul’s missionary journeys, and Paul’s Epistles. It compares 21st century America with these teachings while addressing such issues as: Does God call us today? Can we really walk with Him in the turmoil of America today? How can we make a difference? As always, Scripture and application are the foundation for this course.
