    Tuesday Morning Classes


    September 6 – November 15
    9:30 AM–Noon


    True Woman 101: Divine Design
    Teacher: Betty Farynyk  | Room 240

    The MOMS class is designed to strengthen, encourage, and equip mothers in their ministry of motherhood and to help them draw closer to Christ. This semester we will study biblical womanhood. God created women for a specific purpose, and He wants us to discover, embrace, and delight in the beauty of His design. Each session will include a video, discussion, fellowship, fun, and prayer. We'll have small groups with a Mentor Mom, according to the Titus 2 model of godly older women teaching younger women. Cost: $12 


    Revelation – Interpreting Revelation in the Light of Biblical Prophecy
    Teacher: Jackie Schaffer | Room 242 & Zoom

    This exciting two-semester topical study of Revelation focuses on broadening our understanding of the end-times and “things which must shortly take place.” Whether the Rapture, the Antichrist, Babylon, the Second Coming, or the Great White Throne judgments, this will be an enlightening study! No prior study is necessary, so join us and learn how we are to live in light of the Lord’s last message to us. In-person cost for two semesters: $31.50 (unless you already own the book).

    Jeremiah
    Teacher: Jan Adams | Room 234 & Zoom

    Jeremiah writes of the spiritual depths into which his beloved nation had fallen. Much like America today, Israel claimed to belong to God yet lived in opposition to Him. God called this prophet to warn Judah of His coming judgment on their sin but also to proclaim His promise to forgive all who repented of their sin. Through Jeremiah, we’ll see the blessing of surrender, trust, obedience, and the danger of refusing God. This book is rich in application. It speaks to our hearts and exposes hidden sin while revealing the holiness, mercy, and sovereignty of God. Join us for a rich, discussion-based study. In-person cost: $10

    A Life Beyond Amazing
    Teacher: Rometa Arrington | Room 237 & Zoom

    This study uncovers God’s strategy for change and challenges us to make nine important decisions that will transform our hearts and lives and our world. We'll study the fruit of the Spirit and seek to understand what it means to become the people God wants us to be. We'll seek wisdom for living Spirit-filled lives as we learn how to accomplish God’s purposes. In-person cost: $10

    God of Deliverance
    Teacher: Judy Trexler |  Room 226 & Zoom

    Exodus is the birth narrative of a nation unmistakably guided by the Great Deliverer. We will see that Israel’s story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the “pharaohs” of this world. He lifts our eyes to the Promised Land, where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God. Join us and allow the exodus of the Israelites to shape your understanding of the entire Bible. In-person cost: $16

    Revealing Revelation
    Teacher: Mary Beth Hohman | Room 232 & Zoom

    Come tour the final book of the Bible! The Spirit of God gave us the book of Revelation so we would know, among other things, what the future holds. We will examine the timeline of events before, during, and after the tribulation. We'll study God's specific plan for the people of Israel in the end times. And we'll discover the encouragement, challenges, and warnings Jesus gave to prepare us for His return! In-person cost: $15

    Tuesday Evening Classes


    September 6 – November 15
    7:00–9:00 PM


    The Life of Daniel: Strong and Faithful
    Teacher: Cheri Strahm | Room 228 & Zoom

    Daniel lived in a time of turbulent change in a pagan society where the worship of God was not only mocked but dangerous. How could he hold onto his faith? What did he do when his trust in God was put to the test? This Bible study will focus on the life and character of Daniel, an amazing example of courage in a faith-challenging world. Using the first six chapters of the book of Daniel, we'll do an in-depth study of this man who stood strong and faithful. In-person cost: $5
