Men's Study: 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness
by Eric Metaxas

8 Weeks
Led by Senior Pastor Josh Vaughan & College Minister Justin Smith
Cost $10 (book)
Room 313

What makes a person truly great? Is it only what they've done? Their work and accomplishments? Perhaps, it's often what they don't do that makes them worthy of remembrance.
For instance, when the newly founded United States wanted to make George Washington it's new king, he refused, or Jackie Robinson, one of the most talented baseball players of his time, surrendered his right to fight back against racists... These men and the four more who are profiled all lived their lives for a greater purpose, laying down their comfort and ambitions to follow what they believed was right.
In 7 Men you'll learn more about these remarkable men and the faith that guided each of them.

Ladies' Study: God of Creation
by Jen Wilkins 

10 Weeks
Led by Karen Baldwin
Cost: $13 (incl. workbook)

Room 315
The opening lines and chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.
Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, dive into the first 11 chapters of Genesis by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.

Revelation Book Study:
The Seven Letters to the Churches

10 Weeks
Led by Dr. Bob Nowlin
Cost: Free
Meets in The Chapel

Ever think that the book of Revelation is too hard to understand? Ever wonder how the seven letters written to the new churches in Asia and Europe at the beginning of the book pertain to us?  If so, then you’ll be glad to join one of our best CABC teachers in this walk into the book of Revelation.
Dr. Bob Nowlin has years of experience in teaching the often complex, unfamiliar language and word pictures of the last book of the Bible and making these scriptures amazingly understandable.  Even more importantly, we will learn that this book of prophecy is not just about end time events, but is crucial to Christian living in our times, right now! This study will lead into the Revelation prophecy study coming in January! Bring your Bible.

Beliefs Important to Baptist (and other Christians)

10 weeks
Led by Executive Pastor Danny Walker
Cost: $5 for study guide
Room: 312
In a world that declares the right of every person to develop their own truth, this study helps navigate through the chaos of our modern world to identify those biblical, God-given truths upon which we build our foundations.  We’ll start with “Who in the World are Baptists, Anyway?” and move through weekly discussions and scripture study to build a strong personal faith and recognize what it means when we walk into a Baptist church. 
We’ll cover the Bible, Separation of Church and State, Baptism, Missions and Evangelism, Salvation only by Grace Through Faith and several other personal and important beliefs. Bring a friend and we will discover together the answers to so many questions.

Punto de Partida: Una Conversación Sobre la Fe

8 semanas
dirigido por David Villarreal
Costo: gratis
en la habitación 204
Todo tiene un punto de partida: tu vida, tus relaciones, tu educación, tu carrera.
A veces olvidamos que la fe también tiene un punto de partida. En algunos casos, nuestra fe comenzó en la infancia al recibir un conjunto de creencias que nos transmitieron nuestros padres, o un maestro, pastor o sacerdote. Tal vez desarrollaste tu propio marco de creencias basado en la experiencia personal. O tal vez creciste sin ninguna base religiosa. Con frecuencia, la fe de la infancia no es lo suficientemente fuerte como para soportar las presiones de la vida adulta.
¿Qué tal si pudieras encontrar un nuevo punto de partida para tu fe? Bienvenido a Punto de Partida; 8 sesiones en grupos conversacionales donde exploraremos el tema de la fe.
