The Prophets
Sign Up ButtonMonday @ 7PM (Begins May 7, 8 weeks); Leader: John Crisanti; Location: Upper Room

Becoming a Woman of FreedomSign Up Button
Thursday @ 9:15AM (Begins May 10); Leaders: Danene Wilenta & Joni Jones
The Christian life is supposed to be like a race we run freely, unhindered by the burdens of this life, butsome times we get “stuck.” Join us as we strive together to lay aside the burdens that can make us feel “stuck,” including busyness, past hurts & losses, poor self image, approval seeking, doubt, fear and unhealthy influences.

Discovery Bible Study
Thursday @ 7PM; Leader: Rev. David Cotton;  Location: Sanctuary
Join Reverend David Cotton for what many call the fastest hour of the week!  Discovery Bible Study offers short-term units that alternate between Biblical study of a particular section of the Bible and topical studies that apply Biblical and Christian principles to modern life.   Don't miss it!  

Twisting the Truth by Andy Stanley
Sunday @ 8AM (May - June); Leader: Don Van Houten; Location: Upper Level
This study exposes common ways that Satan influences our thoughts and behaviors in this world by distorting God’s truth. Genesis 3 “Did God really say ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” “You will not surely die.” It helps participants discover the way truth gets twisted  in our lives and culture, how to recognize and overcome it. 

Koinonea Group
Sunday @ 9:30AM; Leader: Rev. David Cotton; Location: Upper Room
KOINONEA is a big, fat Greek word that means “sharing” and “in common,” among other things.  It’s the perfect word to describe this class because we meet to share a great message.  We bring our prayer issues, requests, praises and enjoy our unity in Christ that transcends our differences. You can enter at any point and fit right in.

Sunday @ 9:30AM; Leaders: Richard & Doreen Steenland; Location: Main Office
Join us for a journey through the Book of Colossians.  We will learn that Christ is sufficient for every situation that we face in our lives and what it means personally to live "in Christ.”  Our focus will be on practically applying the truth of this book in our daily lives.
