    Tuesday Morning Classes

    January 10 – March 28, 9:30 AM–Noon

    MOMS — Making Our Mothering Significant
    True Woman 201: Interior Design
     
    by Mary A. Kassian & Nancy Leigh DeMoss
    Teacher: Betty Farynyk (In-person only)
    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. Our time together will include discussion, a video, fellowship, fun, and prayer. Members of the class become part of small groups with a Mentor Mom, according to the Titus 2 model of godly older women teaching younger women. Join us as we learn how God wants to remake us in His image on the inside so that we might reflect His beautiful character and bring Him glory. Cost: $11


    God of Freedom:
    A Study of Exodus 19–40
     
    by Jen Wilkin
    Teacher: Judy Trexler
    Room 226

    Exodus is the birth narrative of the nation of Israel, God’s special possession. In this verse-by-verse study, we will join the Israelites at Mt. Sinai and will find the foreshadowing of Christ in the giving of the Law, in God’s covenant with His people, and in the intricate details of the tabernacle. As God’s children, we will see how to live as those set free, having been delivered from death to life for His glory and kingdom. Join us in this journey that shapes our understanding of the Bible with themes reverberating to Revelation. Cost: $23


    Revelation, Part 4 Interpreting Revelation
    in the Light of Biblical Prophecy
     by Kay Arthur
    Teacher: Jackie Schaffer
    Room 242

    We are now in the last part of our Precept Ministries study, which focuses on broadening our understanding of the end times. Our topics will be the Day of the Lord, the Rapture, the Second Coming, and events that follow, including the Great White Throne and the rewards promised to those who follow the King of Kings! No prior study is necessary, so join us and learn how we are to live in light of our Lord’s last message to us. Cost: $15.75 if you are new.


    Christ Above All:
    The Book of Colossians
     by Dr. David Jeremiah
    Teacher: Rometa Arrington
    Room 237

    Today, there are thousands of ideas about the person of Jesus Christ, but only one book has it right — the Bible. In Colossians, the apostle Paul paints one of the most vivid portraits of Jesus Christ in all of Scripture to help believers understand that Christ is above all! He is superior to any false belief system. Join us to study verse by verse through Colossians and come to know who Jesus is theologically and how to live in light of this truth. Our minds need solid doctrine to have a solid relationship with Christ, built on personal reverence for Him and friendship with Him. Cost: $10


    Ezra and Nehemiah:
    Knowing the Bible
     
    by Kathleen Nielson
    Teacher: Jan Adams
    Room 234

    Israel’s return to its homeland after years of exile brought both joy and challenges. The enemy left their beautiful Temple, their houses, and the land in ruins. Everything had to be rebuilt — especially their relationship with God. God’s holiness, His sovereignty, amazing power, unconditional love, and faithfulness radiate through the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. We will learn how to recognize and stand against opposition, fight discouragement, see the danger of sin and compromise, and be encouraged to follow God’s ways instead of our own. Join us for an in-depth, discussion-based study. Cost: $8


    Strong Women of the Bible:
    Four Courageous Women Who Fought the Good Fight of Faith
     
    by Cheri Strahm
    Teacher: Cheri Strahm 
    Room 227

    Two women of the Old Testament and two of the New Testament left a solid footprint in history. Each had a different call from God: Deborah was a judge and warrior, Abigail was a diplomat, Mary carried a unique secret, and Priscilla risked her life for the Gospel! We have much to learn from these amazing people. What made them so strong? Why such fascinating courage in dangerous circumstances? Join us as we study their lives together and grow stronger ourselves. Cost: $5


    Revealing Revelation by Amir Tsarfati
    Teacher: Mary Beth Hohman
    Room 232

    Tour the final book of the Bible with us! The Spirit of God gave us the book of Revelation so we would know, among other things, what the future holds. This study will help provide eye-opening insights as we examine the timeline of events before, during, and after the tribulation. We’ll discover God’s specific plan for the people of Israel in the end times. And we’ll study the encouragement, challenges, and warnings Jesus gave to prepare us for His return. If you are new, the cost is $15.


    Tuesday Evening Classes

    January 10 – March 28, 7:00–9:00 PM

    Creative Bible Study Experience
     
    by Pam Farrell, Jean E. Jones, & Karla Donacher
    Teacher: Annie Issac
    Room 228

    It seems oxymoronic that Paul wrote Philippians — the joy epistle — from prison! Through this 11-week study, we’ll establish spiritual habits that produce greater joy and peace in our lives, homes, and relationships. Join us for this fascinating study as we seek to build community and grow in joy. Cost: $16
