Goliath Must Fall
by Louis Giglio

7 Weeks
Led by Danny Walker
Cost $7 (includes study guide)
Room 226

 
In Goliath Must Fall, Pastor Louie Giglio examines the story of David and Goliath to reveal how we must slay the giants of fear, rejection, complacency, anxiety, anger, and addiction in our lives. This study shows how the key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy, but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant slayer: Jesus. Put your hope in Him, and watch Goliath fall.

He Chose the Nails
by Max Lucado 

6 Weeks
Led by Ralph and Phyllis Strother
Cost: $6 (includes study guide)

Room 313
 
Easter is coming earlier than usual this year, April 1. He Chose the Nails will help you make the spiritual transition from Christmas giving to the gift of the cross. We will pull out our Bibles and study detailed elements in Christ’s death on the cross and the victory that followed. 
In this Bible study, Max Lucado explores the many gifts that Christ provided to us at His crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross, but also the gift of the thorns, the nails, the seamless robe and the empty tomb where He forever defeated sin and death. These were gifts He didn’t have to give. So, as we unwrap these gifts, we need to pause and listen for His voice. As we do, perhaps we will hear him whisper, “I did it just for you.”

Know and Share Jesus

8 weeks
Led by Pastor Josh
Cost: $6
Room:  313

 
The message at the heart of Christianity is really quite simple – simple enough to be outlined in a few pages. It is a message from the Bible about God and His Son, Jesus. It is about life and death, and the choice that we all face.   And it all starts with a loving creator God.

Walk with Pastor Josh through this study and realize that you can have a true confidence in what you believe. This confidence will be apparent in your life and conversations. Through this Bible-based study, you will become a more complete disciple of Jesus Christ each week than you were the week before.

Revolution
How Millennials Can Change the World

6 Weeks
Led by Pastor Josh Vaughan
Cost: $10 (includes study guide)
Room 226

 
The news is bad, times are tough, and an 8-year-old has taken the throne. Judah’s young king, Josiah, inherited tough times from the generations before him, and God worked through him to make sweeping changes for good in his nation. If Josiah were living today, we would call him a millennial. We can learn a lot from his life as we look at: The Reality - The Parallels - The Generations - The Word - The Pillar - The Future .

God can use anyone, regardless of age, to fulfill His purposes. In Josiah’s life as well as our own, God’s Word changes everything. All it takes are willing hearts for Him to bring about a revolution in our communities, our
nation, and our world.

Entrusted
A Study of 2 Timothy

Ladies' Study
6 Weeks 
Led by Karen Baldwin
                                                              Cost: $13 (Includes study guide)
                                                              Room 315

 
Final words can be compelling. In Paul’s final letter, he charged Timothy, his beloved son in the faith, to not be ashamed to fulfill God’s call on his life. In this Bible study, you will be challenged to do the same. We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.

You will be encouraged to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy.

SUN STAND STILL:
What Happens When You Dare to
Ask God for the Impossible

6 weeks
Led by Danny Walker
Cost: $10 (includes book)
Conference Room 313

 
Based on the bold battle prayer in Joshua 10, we will discuss Biblical evidence and real-life experiences to discover what happens when ordinary believers move beyond “purpose” to passion---and asking God for the impossible becomes a normal way of life!

Sun Stand Still is an inspirational challenge. Speaking directly to Christians who long to take their faith to the next level, Sun Stand Still seeks to change readers’ lives. What stops Christians from praying sun-stand-still prayers like Joshua of the Bible? You will examine common trials every person faces and for each struggle, we’ll look to the Bible for courageous role models. Including a chapter on prayers God does not answer, we will address the issues that halt Christian growth.

Religious Liberty
May/June Adult Bible Study

8 Weeks
Led by Pastor Josh Vaughan and Danny Walker
Cost: Free
Fellowship Hall

 
What if the freedom to practice our faith were taken away? What if we had to decide whether to follow either the rule of our country or our God-given conscience? Religious liberty has protected Christians in America from having to answer these questions, but that may not always be the case.

This study points to the distinct missions of both the church and the state, exposing the historical pitfalls that result when the church and state are joined or when government is openly opposed to religion. Religious liberty is not about promoting a Christian order or retrieving a nostalgic past; it is about promoting a vision of society that protects our conscience and allows the free expression of ideas. The Gospel doesn’t need a state to back it up. Religious liberty is an expression of our confidence in the Gospel.
