Throughout his account, Mark unveils a Jesus of unparalleled power and authority but also a Jesus of humility and love. And while this Jesus invites each of us into a greater story through His teachings, He demands we come as active participants. We must acknowledge Him, seek salvation in Him, and follow Him wherever He leads. In The Gospel of Mark, you’ll follow Jesus through His days of early ministry to the cross and discover what it means to be the recipients of His overflowing compassion and the very reason for His all-consuming passion.

"The Case for Easter" by Lee Strobel
Tuesdays, February 5 through February 26, 2019, 7:00 - 8:30 pm | North Adult Center, Room 12 | All
John Farr – Leader
In his bestselling book The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel retraced his spiritual journey from atheism to faith by showing how the evidence he obtained from experts in the field of history, archaeology, and ancient manuscripts led him to the verdict that Jesus truly was the Son of God. “The Case for Easter” invites participants to examine the evidence for themselves and consider whether the story of Jesus’ resurrection makes sense. It will point them to the inescapable conclusion that led Lee from atheism to Christianity: Jesus was the Son of God who conquered the grave. To register, click here.

Wednesday Mornings, 9:30-11:15 a.m., beginning January 16, 2019 | South Adult Center, Rooms 1 & 2 | Women
Led by Patricia Hocker/Debbi Marshall
Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. Just ask Job, the man from UZ who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this study, discover the redemptive facet of Job’s suffering. Learn to view pain as a way to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and trust in the Lord. Because His province will never take you to a place His grace will not sustain you. Click here to register.

Led by Sherri Price
Beginning Tuesday, September 19, men and women are invited into a 28-week Spiritual Formation experience that will change the way you relate to God, to others, and to yourselves, opening the door to a lasting impact on your heart and God’s Kingdom. In a spiritual formation experience, our goal is spiritual growth. It is more about transformation than information. Together we will explore different types of prayer; looking at ways to connect our spiritual life to our everyday routine, allowing a deeper awareness of God in our daily being and doings. We will look at scripture and how it connects and illuminates our lives and our experiences. The spiritual disciplines of prayer, scripture, study, worship, ministry, and conversation are explored as ways to meet Christ, renew our faith, and deepen our love of God. Perhaps we will even begin to see ourselves and others differently in God’s light. Books will be available the first day of class for $20. Click here to register.

This study will challenge women to evaluate the modern-day idols in our culture and embrace a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus. Childcare available. To register, click here.
