Adult Discipleship & Small Groups

We are a group of people who love Jesus and want to love Him more tomorrow than we do today. For that reason, we meet together in small and large groups regularly to study the Scriptures and strengthen our discipleship.

June 9 - August 18

The Book of Joshua - Meeting in 206  Led by Wayne Dymacek, Greg Gearheart, and Greg Shear

"The book of Joshua is meant to convict, not merely to inform; to comfort not merely to enlighten. The book of Joshua is preaching material beamed to Israel in the form of historical narrative. We need to see that "history in the Old Testament is a declaration from God about God.'" (from the Forward of the Commentary by Ralph Davis)  

This teaching fellowship is not a biblical history lesson but through the class teaching and discussion will help define your history with Jesus, will open the windows into your present temptations, and will foreshadow your future which God is preserving for you. This class can do that because God's work in Israel is also His work in us today.  The book of Joshua is God's sermon intended to change hearts and actions by infiltrating our hearts and minds with the warnings from Israel's unfaithfulness, showing the grace that comes from His gracious presence, and describes the overwhelming truth of His presence that never falters. Reading the chapters from the book of Joshua in advance of the class will provide a dual advantage to all who attend. It will get you into the Scriptures and give practical explanation and application that will feed your soul. 


Identity Theft:  Reclaiming the Truth of Who We Are in Christ – Meeting in 204 Led by Tom Roberts, Lucas Morel and Curt Wilbur

"Remember who you are not who you were" is the teaching theme of this class.  Sin and the tempter attempt to tell you that you are still defined by the sin that remains. You are not. You are free of the old, made in God's image, beloved by the Father, redeemed by the Son, filled with the Holy Spirit, Connected to the church, clothed in splendor, reaping a reward, shining brightly in the darkness, a citizen of His Kingdom. (List is from the chapter titles.) 

This class will help you maintain and grow in the reality of being a New Creation in Christ Jesus by shredding the false and focusing on what is true of you in Christ. It will encourage you in repentance, in faith, and in the reality of Jesus' work in you. 


Why in the World Do We Think That?- The Teachings Satan Tried to PervertMeeting in 201 led by Paul Carter and Mark Stoneburner

This Teaching Fellowship will examine the teaching of the Bible on controversial subjects that are fundamental to our faith and so have been challenged throughout history. These make the difference between the Christian and the almost Christian impacting our future as well as our present day walk with Jesus. They are: The Bible, the Incarnation, the Trinity, Justification, and Sanctification. 

We'll discuss the teaching of Scripture, short writings from past Saints as they defended the truth, and why it matters to our walk with Jesus.
