2024 winter session

begins the week of january 22

  • PRAISE, PRAYERS AND CORINTHIANS - 1 Corinthians is a book that addresses the church of Corinth who was divided by factions and spiritual immaturity. Paul addresses the problems and answers questions from the church. This is a great study to implement into our daily walk as we grow within our own church. This study is open for all believers. Child care is not provided. Come ready for praise, prayer and fellowship as we walk with Paul and learn the wisdom needed in the church today. Starts January 29

    Mondays at 7:00pm • Braughler Home • Leaders: Dale and Teresa Braughler

    WINGS (WOMEN IN GOD'S SERVICE) - Women of all ages are invited to a unique gathering, where relationships with each other are intentionally promoted. As we study scripture, and build our relationship with our Heavenly Father, we find ways to connect to each other. WINGS is a safe place to share, an acceptable place to cry, a warm place to pray and ask for help, and a hopeful place to find encouragement. And we have fun too! 

    1st, 3rd & 5th Mondays of the month at 10:00am • Creative Arts Green Room  • Leader: Phyllis Neff

    LADIES BIBLE STUDY - Ladies (18+) are invited to come and build relationships with other women as we grow in our walk with the Lord. We have a time of sharing, prayer and study of the word. During this session we will study: Finding God Faithful by Kelly Minter (a look at the life of  Joseph) and Waymaker by Ann Voskamp (a look at how God makes the impossible, possible).  We hope you can join us and be part of what God is doing in our midst. Starting January 23

    Tuesdays at 10:00am • Rock Student Center • Leaders: Cindi Peterson & Suzette Sprowls

    CALLED INTO GOD'S PROTECTION - The TRUTH from God's Word is not received by everyone who hears it! Just like Caleb and Joshua were the only 2 Israelites to leave Egypt and physically possess the promises of God, this teaching is for the 1 in a million believers who want to possess every good and perfect gift God has already supplied to us through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Are you that 1 in a million believing God for His protection and His divine health? Or are you interested in learning how to become that 1 in a million walking by faith in God's promises? Join us Tuesdays at 7 pm on Zoom. Starts January 16

    Tuesdays at 7:00pm • Zoom only • Leader: Terry Molitaris

    JOY BIBLE FELLOWSHIP We will continue to look in depth at the book of Romans this winter. In Romans, Paul beautifully shares the plan of salvation and how to live out our Christian faith. This study will fill you with hope as you learn the truth of God's word. We invite all who would like to attend to meet with us every Wednesday as we study together this grace filled letter.

    Wednesdays at 10:00am • Rock Student Center • Leader: Rev. Jim Levkulich

    THE "GRAND" FAMILY - Grandparents are often the core and foundation of any family.

    BIBLICAL CITIZENSHIP IN MODERN AMERICA - Throughout our history, American pastors and churches have played a vital role in the establishment and preservation of religious and civil liberty. We will be going through the Bible and American history to rediscover the secret sauce that produces a prosperous society when Biblical principles are applied. Being salt and light requires knowledge of the culture we are attempting to preserve and influence as we fulfill the Great Commission and make disciples of all nations.

    Wednesdays at 7:00pm • Location TBD • Leaders: Dianne & David Little

    SIGN OF THE TIMES -  In this study we will look at the revelation given to John and shared with us in the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation can be challenging to understand for even the most seasoned of Christians. Together we will explore this book of bible prophecy so we can gain insight into what is happening in the world today.

    Wednesdays at 7:00pm • Location TBD • Leader: Carl Sprowls

    REDEMPTIVE GIFTS & YOUR GODLY IDENTITY - It is clear that we are not all alike. The Creator made us different from one another and we were all created for a specific and unique purpose. When we really know who we are, and how God has created us, we will not be threatened by those who are different from us. The Bible indicates a variety of gifts and functions in which people can operate. Every gift will result in a person functioning differently (1 Corth. 12 vs 4-6). We will be using a video series provided by teacher, Mary Harasyn to give insight into each of the seven redemptive (motivational) gifts. 

    Wednesdays at 7:00pm • Location TBD • Leader: Bill Speer

    GOOD BOUNDARIES & GOODBYES - This group will explore healthy biblical boundary setting and how to communicate boundaries. Love should draw us together, not tear us apart - Lysa Terkeurst. We will take a deeper dive in to what the bible instructs us to do regarding boundaries and learn what the appropriate amount of personal and emotional access someone has to you should be. Join us for this spiritually empowering time. Cost: TBD (for book and workbook)

    Wednesdays at 7:00pm • Location TBD • Leader: J.R. Hancher and Niki & David Crouse

    THE CASE FOR CHRIST - Chicago Tribune investigative journalist, Lee Strobel, investigated the evidence for Jesus - His life, death, resurrection and impact from historical records, the Bible, eyewitness accounts, and current medical understandings in an effort to disprove who Jesus was.
