Bible Exploration and Study
Old Testament - Judges Led By: Heath Casey
days….everyone did what was right in his own eyes. – Judges 21:25
For around 300 years after the death of Joshua, the
Israelites were finally able to live as a people in the Promised Land, and not
under an earthly king, but in a theocracy, ruled by the One True God.
Sounds about perfect, right?
The fact is, the Israelites failed to trust God over and
over again, and as they were living in a very spiritually pluralistic society,
they gave themselves over to pagan religions and idols. We can find a lot
of parallels in our own time. We live among a great variety of gods-not
only those of formal religions, but also gods of wealth, celebrity, pleasure,
ideology, and achievement. How are we affected? We give ourselves
over to idols, making a good aspect of creation into the ultimate source of
security, identity, and power.
Judges provides us many powerful warnings to the devastating
effects of idolatry, but it also reminds us that God relentlessly offers His
grace even when we do not deserve it, or seek it, or even appreciate it after
we have been saved by it. We see that God wants lordship over every area
of our lives, not just some, and finally that there is a need for continual
spiritual renewal in our lives here on earth. The Lord is a rescuing, promise-keeping,
and explore the time of the Judges and you will end up being challenged by
God’s Word to explore your own life and tear down the counterfeit gods that are
ensnaring you from abundant life.
New Testament - 1 Corinthians Led By: Nate Nauman
divisions, immorality, and disorder—these are problems that have plagued the
church in every age. During this study through 1 Corinthians we will look at
God’s Truth regarding the many issues that were present in the church in
Corinth. Divisions, lawsuits, incest, immorality, purity in marriage, abusing
our freedom in Christ, and disorder caused by the misuse of the Lord’s Supper
and spiritual gifts—this list of problems sounds more a soap opera than struggles
within a local church!
reason to take this course on 1 Corinthians should not be to study the sins of
a church and its people. Instead, one should take this course to understand how
God instructs us to deal these sins which are still present today. This will
not be a sit-and-listen-to-the-teacher kind of class. Those who take this
course will be equipped with the basics of how to study and teach the Bible,
and more importantly, will be challenged to obey the Truth that they discover.

The Family Project Led By: Clint Herring and Scott Johnson
do families work? Because God Himself designed them! Thriving families will
lead to thriving communities, and thriving communities will transform the
world. People will find purpose, joy and redemption; and generation after
generation will create a positive legacy.
Family Project will be a session of small group experiences that explores the
theological, philosophical, and cultural underpinnings of the traditional family,
and combines that information with inspiring stories and practical tools to
help 21st Century families thrive.
Family Project also offers a hope-filled, optimistic antidote to the current
landscape of familial breakdown, sending a clear message that a return to the
time-tested, historical model of the family is where so many of our culture’s
wounds begin to heal. It’s designed to develop a new appreciation for why
family matters…based on a bigger understanding of who God is in His character and
why He created humanity the way He did.
This class will be limited to 40 people, so please sign up early.
Covenant by Kay Arthur (Women) Led By: Leanna Van Eman
Covenant explores God's
initiatives with humanity by studying His covenants throughout
history. The idea of covenant — God's enduring promise — is key to
understanding our relationship to God. We will explore the benefits and
responsibilities of covenant as well as the character of the covenant
initiator. Learn about the remarkable ways the old covenant points to the
promises of the new covenant.
participated in this study over 20 years ago and it not only led me to a
deeper understanding of God's commitment to his promises, but it
also revolutionized my relationship with Jesus Christ. I hope you
will join us so that you too can have a deeper appreciation for our God and the
benefit of being in covenant with him."
