Women’s Group – Major Biblical Themes

Laurie Graffo, Sherrie Rodriguez, & Tonja Brice
In Person or Online

The Bible has 66 books and a wide range of genres – yet there is an overarching storyline. What are some of the themes through the Old and New Testaments, and what do they tell us about God, His people, and His plans? An examination of these themes throughout the Bible is a useful way of gaining a deeper appreciation of God’s revelation.

Learning – Study Classes with a Learning Emphasis

Christianity 3-D

Glenn Rivera
In Person or Online

We encounter Bible words such as “resurrection,” “the Kingdom of God,” “Passover,” “antichrist,” or words seemingly as simple and straightforward as “believe,” “faith,” “salvation,” or even “marriage,” but how can we be most certain of sound understanding and correct application to our lives?

There is one place to turn: the rest of the scriptures. Yes, scripture is its own best interpreter. “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.” Psalm 36:9

We must examine what the Bible has to say as a whole, looking at the various genres in which scripture is presented to us, including narrative, poetry, wisdom, prophecy, the gospels, the epistles, and apocalypse. The various genres of scripture present God’s unified revelation; therefore, we must let scripture interpret scripture.

So, in Christianity 3-D, we will encounter God’s Word in its various genres, allowing scripture to interpret itself, teaching us to understand and apply it correctly. Hence, the purpose of Christianity 3-D: Doctrine – Learn it! Discernment – Understand it! Discipleship – Live it!

Jesus Christ: The Promised One of God

Roger Hill
In Person or Online

Every profession is noted for their way of thinking, their way of expressing, and their way to a desired outcome. An attorney thinks different from an accountant who uses a different vocabulary than a preacher. Medical doctors also have their unique thought processes, vocabularies, and desired outcomes.  Luke, identified by Paul as the “beloved physician,” is no different. And in so doing, Luke has given us almost one-third of the New Testament in the Gospel of Luke and The Acts of the Apostles.

Luke’s desired outcome is for us to see Jesus Christ, the Promised One of God as the Perfect Man, the Son of Man, through whom salvation is available to both Jew and Gentile alike.

The Epistle of 1 Corinthians

Monte Johnson
In Person or Online

We are in a multi-year study of Acts and Paul’s various missionary journeys and the subsequent letters he wrote to the churches he started. We will periodically take a pause from Acts, and study the letters Paul wrote while on each journey to the churches that he started. We are currently studying the letters associated with Paul’s 2nd missionary journey, 1 and 2 Corinthians. When finished with those studies, we’ll head back to Acts chapter 19, and then follow Paul on his 3rd missionary journey. Then, we will study the letters Paul wrote after his 3rd trip, and follow him on to Rome to where he wrote the balance of his New Testament epistles, of which we will study as well!

The Book of Daniel: Christ’s Kingdom Stands Forever

Baker Smith
In Person or Online

God blessed Daniel with wisdom and understanding while making him a blessing to the kings of the Babylonian and Persian world empires. Through Daniel, God showed these powerful rulers as well as heavenly beings that God is in control of the events of history, and that history moves in accord with his purposes and in relationship to his people. God demonstrated his power in the lions’ den, in the fiery furnace and Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and other visions. As a result, the formerly pagan King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face and said to Daniel, “Truly, your God is God of gods and Lord of kings.” With reference to Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, Jesus pointed to himself as the stone that crushed all previous world empires. In another vision, Daniel revealed that the Son of Man, as Jesus frequently called himself, would be given the world kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Please join us for this exciting study as you strengthen your confidence and assurance of victory in Christ.

The Epistle of Philippians

Andrew Bradley

We will examine the portrait of Christ that Paul reveals to the church at Philippi. Our study will begin with the background of Philippians and how the church at Philippi was founded. This will be followed by an in-depth verse-by-verse study communicating the overarching themes like:

  1. Thanksgiving in the midst of suffering
  2. Paul’s afflictions exalting the Lord
  3. Christ’s example of humility
  4. Knowing Christ as opposed to living for the flesh
  5. Peace in all circumstances.

We will be inspired and encouraged as Paul exhorts the Philippian church to stand fast in the Lord.

Revival in America Today

Bobby Mitchell, Sr.
In Person or Online

This is a study about the decline of America and its Church today. Our class questions whether or not we as Christians can do anything to turn the tide. We will examine our personal faith walk and see how it runs headlong into the deterioration around us. Our class builds on previous studies of knowing and doing God’s will, revivals and awakenings, Paul’s missionary journeys, and Paul’s epistles. We will compare the dramatic changes we face in 21st century America today with these biblical teachings. How can we overcome evil with boldness? Can we really make a difference? Where do we start? Join us for an exciting journey and find out.

The Victory of Faith

Adam Mathes
In Person or Online

“But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved” Hebrews 10:39, NIV.

The struggles and turmoil we experience in the world today are not new. Our faithful ancestors experienced challenges equal to—and greater than—those we experience today. Scripture shows us how ordinary people like us became heroes of faith. This study will examine our ancestors’ lives and faith, beginning with Hebrew’s heroes (cataloged in Hebrews 11). It will lead each participant to renewed hope and the expectancy of victory that faith brings.

*Adam Mathes is married to Sarah Wood Mathes and together they have four young children.  Adam served six years as a Navy Chaplain, and he also has an earned Ph.D. in Historical Theology.
