  • In-depth studies on particular books of the Bible
  • Theology and related issues, like ethics or apologetics
  • Parenting
  • Marriage
  • Financial Stewardship
  • Leadership training
Discipleship classes run from 6:00-7:30 pm. Activities for babies, preschoolers, elementary-aged kids and middle and high-schoolers are also available during any regular Sunday night classes.

Spring 2019: February 10 - April 14

What Every Christian Needs to Know 
Facilitated by: Pastor Jim Gillespie and Pastor John Wright
This class provides both new and seasoned Christians with biblical knowledge and practical steps to grow deep spiritual roots. Lessons include assurance of salvation, how to know your spiritual 
gift, and what to do when a Christian sins. Gain confidence in your faith and be better equipped to be a disciple who makes disciples.

God Speaks: Doctrine of the Bible & Revelation
Facilitated by: Pastor Brian Merritt 
The doctrine of revelation discusses how God reveals himself through creation and the special revelation of His Word – the Bible. This class will survey the general theological concepts related to the doctrine as well as biblical authority, inspiration, inerrancy, and reliability. We will also look back at the history of the Bible and how the Bible we have today came to be.

We are the Church: A Study in the Pastoral Epistles
Facilitated by: Pastor Jason Hall 
Paul wrote to Timothy, his “son in the faith,” about how to lead and guide God’s people as they became disciples who make disciples. In this text-driven study of 1-2 Timothy and Titus we’ll listen in on this conversation between Christianity’s earliest church planter and his eager young protege. Note: This class will require homework outside of class time and 
personal study.

Equipped for the Great Commission
Facilitated by: Pastor Nathan Brown and Pastor Greg Mathias 
Learn what biblical discipleship looks like, how you can be equipped to lead or go on mission trips, and how you can encourage our ministry partners. Discover what makes the difference between a good mission trip and a great one.  

Christ-Centered Parenting
Facilitated by: Eric and Kris Radcliff
Do you ever feel ill-equipped as a parent to talk about the cultural issues of our day? This
video-driven, discussion-based class is designed to help you lead your children and teens in a confident and responsible way. Give your kids a biblical worldview that will produce the next generation of culture shapers - not simply the next generation shaped by their culture.
Esther: God's Promised Providence (Women's Class)
Facilitated by: Stef Dowd and Elizabeth Rodriguez 
Destiny or schemes? Providence or coincidence? Esther is a heroine, famous for her beauty, 
selflessness, confidence, and courage in a perilous situation. Is that all you think of her? Right place, right time? We will study this eloquent drama of a Jewish orphan and an evil villian, while being reminded that even though God may feel absent or hidden, He is in control and ever-present. 

Stepping Up (Men's Class) 
Facilitated by: Kyle Sutherland 
Men today are in a battle. It’s a battle without bullets or bombs, but a battle all the same. It’s a fight for our families and our future. Facing the battles of life demands courage, and courage is the ability to do the hard thing in every circumstance, despite the cost. This video-driving, discussion-based class calls men to courageous manhood, offering a powerful vision for what it means to be a man today who truly conquers and wins in life.
