1 & 2 Thessalonians: Living in Light of Christ’s Return
Tuesday, September 21 – November 16| 6:45 – 7:45 a.m. | Room 242 | Cost: $15 | In-Person or Online
Leader: Lori Harris
Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians contains some of the most important New Testament passages about eschatology, culminating in all things. First and Second Thessalonians set forth the Christian view of history, showing that history is linear rather than circular and that history will come to a planned, grand finale, consisting of the Second Coming of Christ, the resurrection, the judgment, and the kingdom. During His life and ministry, Christ assured the apostles that He would return for His people one day. How should this future event affect our lives today?
A Study of Isaiah
Tuesday, September 14 – November 16 | 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. | Room 237 | Cost: $15 | In-Person
Leader: Vicki Gillespie
The Book of Isaiah carries within it one of the greatest mysteries of the coming Messiah- that He would be both the suffering servant and the victorious king. The revelation of this dual mission has created misunderstanding, confusion, and controversy throughout history. In order to read Isaiah’s prophecies correctly, we will let Scripture interpret Scripture by looking to their fulfillment in the words and life of the Messiah. As we study Isaiah 40-66, we will study and compare Isaiah’s prophecies and their specific fulfillments in the New Testament accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry and His future coming as the victorious King in Revelation.
May God grant us to see new and rich blessings in our understanding of the Father’s magnificent plan throughout history for our redemption. Won’t you join us?

First Samuel reads as a biography of three strategic figures – Samuel, Saul, and David.

Corrupt religious leaders confused the church in a careless, complacent, chaotic culture…must history repeat itself? Join us to see what God can do in and through those who are fully committed to Him. Minor daily homework, group discussion, short lecture format with frequent fellowship over lunch.
A Study of 1 and 2 Timothy: Guarding Truth
Thursday, September 16 – November 18 | 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. | Room 201| Cost: $15 | In-Person
Leader: Meg Estes
As Paul told Timothy, the church is the pillar and ground of the truth. When we allow man-made doctrines and traditions to take the place of the truth of God’s Word, we rob souls of the light they so desperately need. By guarding the truth, we guard the most amazing message ever known – God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ and entrance into a Kingdom beyond our wildest dreams. This twelve-week study goes verse-by-verse through 1 and 2 Timothy.
Thursday, September 23 – November 18 | 10:20 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. | The Commons | Cost: $15 | In-Person
