Our 2020 Spring Quarter classes will begin March 1st and we would love to see you attend a Bible class. Here is a list of what we have to offer.
2020 Spring Quarter Classes
- Jesus Christ and God’s Desire for His People – A Study of Hebrews - Taught by Craig Hayes and Kyle Whittenberg - Auditorium
No book bridges the Old and New Testaments more completely than the book of Hebrews. The author shows us God’s plan for Jesus and our need for His coming through the Old Testament scriptures and examples. How did the first century Christians initially come to understand Jesus without a New Testament? How did they see that the old covenant was a promise of better things now available and not just a list of rules? Hebrews shows what God wanted for both His people then and His people today and why an ignorance of Old Testament Scripture lessens our understanding of what God desires for all His people.

- Practical Christianity: Things That Affect My Service To God - Taught by Tony and Robin Ohlhausen - Upstairs in Young Adult Classroom
Many Christians are torn between serving Christ and the world. When Christian service demands more time, more money, greater effort, and the sacrifice of more selfish interests, tension and opposition is encountered. Where there should be a thrilling response to opportunities, there are often feelings of resentment, stress, anxiety and guilt. The service of Christ, designed to produce peace, joy, and fulfillment results instead in conflict. The answer is simple, but it is not simple to apply. It is invariably true that those who have attained a high level of peace and joy in the Christian life are those whose level of commitment to Christ and the spiritual life is very great. The concept of commitment will become meaningful to us when we can say with Paul, "I count everything as refuse in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him..." In this class, we will discuss many things that affect our service to God, how to recognize them and strategies to get back on the right path.
- Old Testament Discussion Class: The Book of Judges - Taught by Zane Heard and Randy Dupuy - Room 104
After the death of Joshua, the people of Israel begin to adopt the corrupt practices of the Canaanites they failed to drive out of the land. This leads to a repeated cycle of sin, oppression, repentance, deliverance, peace, and back to sin. The book highlights six judges and shows their increasing corruption. They start off fairly well (Othniel, Ehud, Deborah) but become increasingly worse (Gideon, Jephthah, Samson). The book is a tragedy. Ultimately it points out the need for God's grace to send a king who will rescue his people. Grab a cup of coffee and join us as we discuss the lessons for us today.
