Major Prophets - Led by Paul Hamline, Jason Lapp, & Mike Meadors
The divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah were more often than not led by evil kings. Idolatry, wickedness, and rebellion were rampant, accompanied by religiosity without true affection for God.  Because He is faithful, God sends His prophets, warning of the wrath to come, but also revealing His loving provisions for restoration and reconciliation.  Hearts are far from God, yet God in His steadfast love reveals His remedy for man’s desperate sin-sickness: the Messiah and the New Covenant.

Body Dynamics - Danny Games, Lawson Hembree, & James Henrich
What is the church? Why does it exist? What makes a healthy church? The Bible uses many metaphors to describe the church. Perhaps the best known is the metaphor that speaks of the church as Christ’s Body. This class will unpack and explore the significance of this metaphor using Pastor John MacArthur’s book, The Body Dynamic, as a guide. It will explore such topics as spiritual gifts, the Lord’s Supper and baptism, and the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church through lecture and discussion.

Fundamentals of the Faith - Clint Goode, Nolan Games, & Garrett Plunkett
Fundamentals of the Faith is a class that will provide believers, new and old, a firm theological foundation that will sharpen your understanding of key doctrines and better equip you for evangelism and discipleship. The essence of Christianity is truth: truth about God the Father, Christ, and the Holy Spirit; truth about man’s sin and God redemptive plan of salvation; and truth about God’s revealed will for the church and our own walk with the Lord. Fundamentals of the Faith is the perfect Equipping Hour class to help you establish a solid biblical foundation for the Christian life.

Christian Finances & Possessions - Howard Bennett, Charles Dunlap, & Mike Davidson
For this class, we will be looking to scripture for guidance in our finances, and how we can use our finances for God’s glory. We will cover such topics as contentment, debt, giving, and much more. This class will be helpful for those just starting out on their own as well those who are more established in their financial patterns. We will have a mixture of lecture and discussion – all with the aim of being more aware of our responsibilities regarding the possessions on loan to us by God.

Deuteronomy - Women’s Class
We will continue our study of the book of Deuteronomy with a study by Lisa Hughes.  This study will be broken into smaller, doable weekly segments.  The lessons and a calendar are provided.  We have a rotation of ladies that lead the weekly discussion.  For those who cannot attend in person, we also offer virtual meetings each week on Microsoft Teams.
