1 Peter by Jen Wilkin led by Glenda Light and Bev Bellamy

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.

9:30 AM – Morning (with childcare) – Wednesdays

Ephesians by NT Wright – led by Martha Hunt

Have you noticed how sometimes you have a story in the back of your mind that keeps coming up, even when you’re talking about something else? In Ephesians, throughout its worship, prayers and instructions for living, Paul can’t contain his joy and amazement at the larger story of God’s plan to save us in Jesus the Messiah. These eleven studies from N.T. Wright will help us see the significance of our role in God’s grand narrative, and encourage us to live more fully as people who are lavishly loved by God. Thoughtful questions, prayer suggestions, and useful background and cultural information all guide into a more in-depth study of God’s word.

Gospel Fluency by Jeff Vanderstelt – led by Jenna Slomp

The good news about Jesus (the gospel) is for ALL of life; it’s GOOD NEWS that can be applied to every part of life-including the brokenness in our lives and the longings of our souls. Fluency in a language means you can think, feel and speak in a language. Fluency in the gospel allows us to think, feel, and perceive everything in light of what has been accomplished in the person and work of Jesus Christ. It gives us new vision-to see the world differently, and to think differently. Most importantly it allows us to experience ongoing transformation as the truths of the gospel are applied to our thoughts, emotions, beliefs and actions. We can only grow in our gospel fluency in community. No prior knowledge of the bible is required to join this class, all are welcome. As a group we will encourage each other as we grow in our faith and understanding; and also in our confidence in speaking and receiving the truths of the gospel into our own hearts and lives.

A Praying Life by Paul Miller – led by Bonnie Bateman and Leslie Weisser

Prayer is so hard that unless circumstances demand it―an illness, or saying grace at a meal―most of us simply do not pray. We prize accomplishments and productivity over time in prayer. Even Christians experience this prayerlessness―a kind of practical unbelief that leaves us marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy. Prayer is all about relationship. When Jesus describes the intimacy He seeks with us, He talks about joining us for dinner. A Praying Life feels like having dinner with good friends. It is the way we experience and connect to God. In A Praying Life, author Paul Miller lays out a pattern for living in relationship with God and includes helpful habits and approaches to prayer that enable us to return to a childlike faith.
