    Monday Morning Studies


    Mondays, 6:30–7:30 AM
    November 26 – February 18

    Joshua
    Conference Room A (4th floor)  |  Tom Miller
    Joshua is a study of God's promises fulfilled. It is a natural closing chapter of the work God began with Moses to lead His people out of Egyptian captivity and to the promised land. He would task Joshua with that responsibility, and they would indeed take possession. That work, however, was not without its setbacks. The message for us today: God is faithful; He is the ultimate promise keeper. He is worthy of our trust and obedience.

    This in-depth study of the beginning of the church era highlights the spreading of the Gospel as commanded by Jesus in the final verse of Matthew: "Go and make disciples of all nations." Our group, ranging in ages 30–85, is not a one teacher structure but is led by different members each week as we move through the study drawing on the knowledge and experiences of all present.

    Getting Ready for Christ's Return
    Room 306  |  Bill Harding
    Believing that Christ’s return was both sure and imminent in the first century, Paul wrote 1 and 2 Thessalonians to help believers get ready for the Lord’s return. Join us and learn how to balance practical Christian living and service in light of Jesus’ immanent return. All men are invited!

    Matthew
    Stonecrest Chick-Fil-A  |  Jeffrey Arrington & Sy Pugh
    This semester we will continue our study of Matthew. Throughout his Gospel, Matthew takes us back to the Old Testament over and over again to remind us of all that God promised. Since the Fall, humanity had been waiting and hoping for a way back to the Garden, back to a life with God and God with us. In Jesus, God fulfills His promises and shows us the way. Come walk with us through Jesus’ most famous teachings in both word and deed. Discover what it means to live with Him now so you may live with Him forever.

    Tuesday Evening Study

    Tuesdays, 7:00–8:30 PM
    September 11 – December 18

    1 Corinthians
    Room 401  |  Wayne Hackbarth

    Milk or meat? This conversational study of 1 Corinthians focuses on the early church established by Paul and how it drifted away from the truths of God. It serves as a challenging reminder of our personal need for God that is relevant to each of our lives today. No cost, just bring your Bible! Contact: Wayne Hackbarth, 704.641.3472, wayne@webwrightcarolina.com


    Tuesdays, 7:00–8:30 PM
    January 8 – May 14

    1 & 2 Corinthians
    Room 401 | Wayne Hackbarth

    Join us for a continued conversational study in 1 Corinthians followed by a new study in 2 Corinthians. This early church established by Paul found itself drifting from the power of the Word. It had to be reminded of the undeniable truth of Christ. These letters are appicable to each of us and are a powerful reminder when we stray. There is no fee just bring your Bible.

    Stronger
    by: Angela Thomas-Pharr
    Teacher: Judy Trexler | Room 226
    No matter what difficulty you may be facing today, remember that God is stronger than anything you will encounter. Through the saving grace of our Savior and the power of the Holy Spirit, you can live a “confident, life-transforming, and Christ-radiating life.” Join us as we cast off our burdens and find renewed hope and strength for living. This interactive Bible study uses teaching videos in addition to class discussion. Cost: $18


    Psalms Part 2
    by: Jan Adams
    Teacher: Jan Adams | Room 231
    The Psalms have been a source of comfort and strength for believers in every experience of life. They are a gateway to the heart of God. Through them He is drawing us to Himself – into a closer relationship of trust, obedience and worship. Join us as we dig deep into these treasures.


    I'm Stuck, But I Want to Be Free
    by: Debbie Friley
    Teacher: Karmen Estes 
    Are you stuck, but longing to be free?  Ephesians 4:31 says, "Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.”...so how do we do that? How can we better honor the Lord in our walk? Come and discover some simple steps to lasting change as we use the power of God’s Word to unlock His desire for us to know and experience the truth of John 8:36: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” All He needs is desire to obey Him! Cost: $10


    Lord, I Want to Know You 
    By: Kay Arthur
    Teacher: Rometa Arrington | Room 242 
    Let’s discover the limitless power of God’s name! So much of our confusion and pain results because we don’t know God....who He really is or how He works in our lives. But with Lord, I want to know you, that will all change. When you know God more fully by studying His names...Creator, Healer, Protector, Provider, and many others...you’ll gain power to stand strong. You’ll find strength for times of trial, comfort for pain, provision for your soul’s deepest needs. And your walk with God will be transformed. Cost: $17


    The God You May Not Know
    By: Dr. David Jeremiah
    Teacher: Mary Beth Hohman  |  Room 232
    Knowing about someone is not the same as knowing the person himself.  Trying to comprehend the person of God is like trying to capture all the galaxies of the universe in a child’s prism.  Yet the Bible encourages us to try.  God seeks to be known, He reveals Himself in His creation and in His Holy Word.  This study will enable us to love Him more, to know Him better, and to make Him known.  As our Lord Jesus Christ prayed on the final night of His earthly life:  “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” John 17:3" Cost: $15


    Called to Contentment
    MOMS Class, 9:30–11:35 AM
    by Donna Navey
    Teacher: Donna Navey | Room 222
    The MOMS Class is designed to help mothers of young children encourage one another and draw closer to Christ. Members of the class become part of small groups with a designated Mentor Mom (Titus 2:3-5) who leads discussion on the practical application of sound doctrine. This semester MOMS will be learning from the study Called to Contentment. The culture sells the idea “all we need is a little more than we have.” God’s Word reveals a more purposeful and eternal ambition. The struggle to be, do, and have it all cannot provide the blessing of a contented life. This study will help mothers rest in God's best! 
    Cost: $15

    A Life Beyond Amazing
    by Dr. David Jeremiah
