The Bible Says What? [Heritage Hill Campus]
September 13 - November 15
Have you ever had questions about the Bible? How do you read this book? When was the Bible put together? What about all the different authors in the Bible, the different styles of writing, and the history behind these words? In this 10-week class with Pastor Alex Fernandez, you’ll talk about these and many more questions about this book that we look to as God’s Word. You’ll learn some of the background behind the Bible in a way that will help you read it like you’ve never read it before. You’ll read passages you may have read before with brand new eyes, unlocking a brand-new perspective!

Romans [South Wyoming Campus]
September 13 - November 15
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." "There is now therefore no condemnation in Christ Jesus." "For I am convinced that...[nothing] in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Paul's letter to the Romans is filled with some of the most powerful verses in all of scripture. Join Pastor Marcus Schmidt for this 10-week Bible study.
Intentional Parenting [South Wyoming Campus]
September 13 - October 11
As parents, we all start out with the best intentions – although, at some point, we move from “dreams to duct tape” and hope everything will just stick together. Let’s face it; it’s just easier to focus on immediate problems rather than deal with the deeper and more important ones! Surviving each day is much easier than taking the time and energy to consider how parenting actions impact a child’s future. We get it. To be an exceptional parent, you need to be an intentional parent. But don’t worry! You’re not alone. It’s never too late to become an intentional parent. Remember, you are the GREATEST influence in the life of your child (no matter their age)! Let’s walk this important journey – together.
Sharing Your Faith [South Wyoming Campus]
October 18 - November 15
Good news is meant to be shared! God calls us to share our faith, and the Bible reminds us why. But what does that look like in today’s age? How do we have spiritual conversations with people around us? In this 5-week class, you’ll learn and practice sharing your faith without using a formula or trying to scare people about eternal punishment, but rather to help people around you learn about the radical and life-giving love that God has for each and every one of us.
