THURSDAY CLASSES

The Book of Ephesians: Basic Training to be Battle Ready
The Four Laws of Love: Guaranteed Success for Every Married Couple

Emmanuel & Christalyn Orupabo (Room 206)
Thursdays @ 6:30 PM

God created love and marriage, and He created laws to guide and guard them. When God’s laws are honored, marriage is the safest relationship on the earth, and the love we need is promoted and protected within it. When God’s laws are violated—knowingly or unknowingly—it diminishes, or even destroys the environment necessary for true and lasting love. The Four Laws of Love, by Jimmy Evans, is a field guide for growing in intimacy, strengthening your marriage, and deepening your faith. This 12-week course will equip you with practical Biblical principles to experience more joy and a deeper partnership with your spouse in a Christ-centered marriage.

Jesus said, My Father is always at His work to this very day, and I, too, am working…the Son can only do what He sees His Father doing (John 5:17-18).

SUNDAY CLASSES

Living in God’s Best
The Book of Judges: A Faithful, Loving God to An Unfaithful People

Angel Fredeluces (Room 102)
Sundays @ 8:30 AM

In the Book of Judges, the people of Israel were no longer relying on God as they did when they crossed the Jordan and began to face the nations of Canaan. Instead, Israel had become lazy and no longer sought the face of God. They had attached themselves to the pagan people of the land and had begun to partake in the idolatrous practices of the Canaanite people. They went through this 3000 years ago and gave us a history from which we could learn in our present day. Israel’s past speaks to us clearly and reminds us that God remains faithful, and He encourages us to hold fast to Him even as we are surrounded by many of those same practices today. We don’t have to repeat the mistakes of the past, but we can stand firm and be victorious because we have His Spirit in us. Let Israel speak to you today through the book of Judges.

The Bible’s Prophetic Timeline

Bob Yee (Prayer Room)
Sundays @ 10:15 AM

Six thousand years of Biblical Prophecy and here we are today on the brink of the Anti-Christ, the Great Tribulation, and the Rapture. These things must take place before Jesus Himself returns to form a new 1,000-year government here on the earth; a much better place than it is today, but it is not yet Heaven. In the end, God the Father will return with a New Heaven and a New Earth where He will dwell among His people forever. It is impossible to understand Biblical Prophecy without knowing the past and now understanding what the future brings through God’s Prophetic Plans. So, join me now, as we uncover the truth of God’s Revelation.

Speed of Unity: You’ll Know It When You Feel It
The Gospel of John: Finding Identity and Purpose

Dr. Paul Smith (Room 203)
Sundays @ 10:15 AM

Who am I? What is my purpose? Jesus has called you. Called you to be different. Called you to love. Called you to restore. In this study, Biblical scholars explain the deeper, first-century meanings of passages from the book of John. Modern applications of the text are taught in order to help you find your identity in Christ and your purpose in life, through a cultural and first century perspective that will deepen your understanding of God’s word.
This class will take you into an adventure with others looking back to the first century in order to understand the biblical text—and then accurately apply it to our lives today in the twenty-first century. As we do so, may we find our identity and purpose.
