9:00am // Room 216

For single adults age 40+ (and a few marrieds). We watch a video series from RightNow Media on a book of the Bible and have a lively, meaningful discussion as we share life application truths.

April 7-June 23: The Gospel of John Part 1 – Where do you turn when the world around you grows dark? In this study of the Gospel of John, Dr. Tony Evans encourages us to turn to Christ by reminding us of the two purposes for the beloved disciple’s book—that we would believe in Jesus and find life in his name. Despite what our culture may argue, there is only one hope that is truly trustworthy and that is our savior, Jesus Christ. So, join Tony for this twelve-session series that will draw you back to the essential truths of our faith and the life found in our king.

June 30-August 25: The Gospel of John Part 2 – Dr. Tony Evans returns for the eagerly anticipated The Gospel of John: Part 2. The second half of John shows us the love of the Father displayed in his Son. In this nine-session series, you will study Jesus‘s last days, crucifixion, and resurrection. Through John’s Gospel, Dr. Evans will show us the heart of God, the one who is ready to offer us hope and restoration in eternal life with him.

ADULTS

A Place for You

10:30Am // Room 215

Our curriculum ranges from deep theological studies to topical and relational series. Through April, we will study Skye Jathani’s book, What If Jesus Was Serious About Heaven? We will explore the importance of the kingdom of heaven in Jesus’s ministry, message, and parables. In doing so, he redefines the popular understanding of heaven as a celestial home for the dearly departed and reimagines our role in God’s kingdom here on earth. We love weekly snacks, we celebrate birthdays, and we pray and care for one another. Join us.

Facilitators: Bruce Pearson, Scott Kardatzke, and Joel Friesen

ADULTS

Class 8:37

10:30am // Room 222

Jesus set the expectation that we would be people of prayer by saying, “When you pray…” In June, we will explore several prayers found in the Bible. These will be prayers seeking guidance, giving thanks, interceding for others, and even prayers coming out of despair. These prayers will help us build a relationship with God as we anticipate the coming of His kingdom.

Toward the end of Summer, we will turn our attention to the worship of God and His redemptive plan for humanity as seen in the writings of John from the book of Revelation.

Class 837 is a multi-generational fellowship for Bible study, prayer support, relationships, good donuts, and out-of-class gatherings.

Facilitator: Wayne Huxman

Central Singles

Single Focus

For single adults age 40+ (and a few marrieds). We watch a video series from RightNow Media on an applicable topic and then have a meaningful and lively discussion on the Biblical truths represented.

April 5-June 14: Living as an Overcomer: Eternal Motivation for Earthly Success – The unique hardships of our modern lives can often feel insurmountable. But God’s Word reveals to us that there is no obstacle, habit, or situation we face that Jesus hasn’t already given us the power to conquer. In this eight-session study, bestselling author Dr. Tony Evans examines how Christ’s message to the seven churches in Revelation can challenge, convict, and lead us toward emphatic victory over any difficulty in life. As we heed God’s instructions to the early church, we will learn to reject lukewarm faith and start living as overcomers.

Facilitator: Pastor Cheri Clark

June 28-August 9: Untangle Your Emotions – What if instead of ignoring our feelings, we noticed them, named them, and let God use them to draw us closer to himself and others? Many of us need to unlearn damaging messages about our emotions. We’ve been taught, for example, that emotions are untrustworthy, when, in fact, God can use them to help us see where we need his healing. In this six-session series, Jennie Allen uses scientific research, biblical insight, and her own story to help you name and navigate your emotions and learn how they can draw you closer to the God who made you—soul, mind, and heart.
