C.H.R.I.S.T. (Multigenerational but most are 50s and 60s)

Christian Hearts Reborn in Spirit and Truth is open to all adults, married or single, all levels of faith. Our curriculum includes a variety of Bible study series where we dive into and explore the Bible, then discuss how it relates to issues we face every day in our lives. Some of the lessons are supported by short videos. What really makes our class “work” is the diversity of our group and the lively discussions we have each week. Our class has a team of leaders who facilitate these weekly discussions. Relationship building is a top priority for us, and we schedule sharing/fellowship time every 6 weeks. We would love to have you visit our class and share in our discussions!

Current Study:  
Through the end of the year (taking a break on Thanksgiving weekend), we will complete a 4-week Advent Study and incorporate a 2-week video review of "The Star of Bethlehem." The Advent Study is "The Case for Christmas" by Lee Strobel. Strobel is a converted atheist who set out to poke holes in his wife's unwavering faith. He consults experts on the Bible, archaeology, and messianic prophecy to add to the understanding of the Christmas Story. (Strobel wrote another similar book ’The Case for Christ’. This book is a 2017 film on Netflix).

Meets at 11:00 a.m. in room C128-129  VIEW MAP

Wesley Class (Multi-gen)

Always open to those wanting to learn and move forward on the Spiritual Journey, the Wesley Class is centered on following Jesus Christ, emphasizing the historic traditional Christian faith, and developing a Wesleyan understanding of God’s grace and salvation.  We learn United Methodist doctrine and learn how to practice both personal and social holiness by using the Holy Bible and other scripture-based media to deepen our pursuit of discipleship. 

Current Study: Don't Give Up
Life can leave you feeling weary. Work, relationships, health, or finances can have people hanging by a thread, losing faith and short on strength. But God whispers to us all, don’t give up. There are many ways to say it. Keep going. Don’t stop. Hold fast.  The message of faith never changes. Don’t Give Up is a 5-week video-based series that will encourage you to cast your concerns on God, trust in his love and timing, pray for patience and strength, and seek out support in the family of God.  Series begins September 22.

Meets at 9:30 in C128 (across from the Round Room). VIEW MAP
