GO FISH by Andy Stanley (led by Joan Klassen)

Fishing stories. We’ve all heard them. “It was this big.” “You should have seen the one that got away.” People love to tell stories of their fishing adventures. When it comes to faith, however, most people clam up. Why is it we can’t talk about what God has done in our lives as naturally as we can spin fishing tales? In this six-part study, Andy Stanley explores the motivation behind sharing your faith and how it can become a natural part of your life.

THE EXPLICIT GOSPEL by Matt Chandler (led by Jody Keim)

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest news ever proclaimed to humanity. Yet many believers have a limited grasp of the power. This bible study makes explicit the multifaceted truths of the gospel. Chandler defines the saving power of the gospel and challenges you to embrace and rely on the gospel to grow in Christlikeness, to persevere in your faith, to serve others in the power of Christ, and to celebrate your eternal redemption.

JESUS THE KING by Tim Keller (led by Bonnie Bateman)

Keller unlocks new insights into the life of Jesus Christ as he explores how Jesus came as a king, but a king who had to bear the greatest burden anyone ever has. Jesus the King is Keller’s revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. In it, Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God.

GENEROUS JUSTICE by Tim Keller (led by Amy Vetter)

It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn’t it full of regressive views? Didn’t it condone slavery? Why look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice.

SIMPLIFY by Bill Hybels (led by Christine Light)

Exhausted. Overwhelmed. Overscheduled. Today’s velocity of life can consume and control us, until our breakneck pace begins to feel normal and expected.  When we spend our lives doing things that keep us busy but don’t really matter, we sacrifice the things that do. If you crave a simpler life anchored by the priorities that matter most, roll up your sleeves: Simplified living requires more than just cleaning out your closets or reorganizing your desk drawer. It requires uncluttering your soul. By eradicating the stuff that leaves your spirit drained, you can stop doing what doesn’t matter―and start doing what does.

ESL BIBLE STUDY (led by Deanne Wirzba)

If English is not your first language, we have a Bible study class for you. Please bring an English Bible and a Bible in your own language. It will be a time of studying the Bible, meeting other women, and working on different parts of grammar.

TO LIVE IS CHRIST TO DIE IS GAIN by Matt Chandler (led by Bonnie Dyck)

The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for the popular sound bites, but to paint a picture of mature Christian faith. This disruptively inspiring book offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. To live is Christ, to die is gain—this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lied to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him—everything should be about Jesus.

TRANSFORMED WOMEN IN THE BIBLE by Julie Allyson-Leron (led by Judie Rae)
