Parents of Young Families - The Peacemaker
Rm 16/18 with Hamiltons, Neufelds, Sullivan

The Peacemaker by Ken Sande takes readers beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers.  Biblically based, The Peacemaker is full of godly wisdom and useful suggestions that are easily applied to any relationship needing better communication, tools for “fighting fair” and reconciliation.  This class is discussion-based, practical, and builds community with others who have young children. 

The Bible and Authority
Rm 5 with James Bohnenblust and Jon Black w/ DVD

What does the Bible have to say about the relationship between believers and their leadership, government, or country?  If Jesus said that His kingdom is not of this world, how do we live in it biblically? Do you know how our US government functions, its history, and its responsibility to the public it governs? Take a thoughtful journey into appreciating what God-given privileges we have as Americans and how God would have us live into His kingdom while living here on earth.  

That the World May Know
Rm 20 with Bob Williford w/ DVD

View DVD of the Holy Land and discuss the culture, history, and meaning of stories in the Bible.  Appreciate how understanding the Bible in its original context impacts how you apply it to your life circumstances today.

Precepts for Women
Rm 19 with LaJane Anderson

Build friendship and community with other women as you study the Bible chronologically. This fall's focus will be Daniel, Esther, Zechariah, and then the New Testament after October.  Learn how to study the Bible as you study it. Share prayer concerns, worship together, and find support.

Immerse...Digging Deep into Isaiah
