Do you know the real story behind the New Testament? We all share a fascination for discovering “the rest of the story.” We enjoy learning the behind-the-scenes facts about seemingly familiar events. In this eight-session Bible study, well-known Bible scholars, N.T. Wright and Michael F. Bird, team up to take you on a tour of the story behind the explosive story of the New Testament. You will discover things you never knew about Jesus’ baptism and journey into the wilderness, the meaning behind his parables and miracles, the significance of his death and resurrection, the incredible expansion of the early church into the Greco-Roman world, and how the transforming mission of Jesus can still turn the world upside down today.
Jesus said that – a lot. His very first announcement in his public ministry in the gospel of Mark was to proclaim that “the kingdom of heaven was at hand.” He then spent the rest of His ministry explaining what that meant and what that kingdom was like – before He made a way for us to enter. In this study we will take a closer look at the word pictures (parables) Jesus left us, to help us understand and get a fresh glimpse of the wondrous life in His Father’s kingdom.

This fall we are splitting up our Wednesday night discipleship class in TWO different studies, one for men – and one for women!
MEN: join us in the dining hall.
No More Excuses: Sometimes circumstances in life make it difficult for men to be all God wants them to be. But Tony Evans urges men to stop looking at their circumstances as excuses and instead to see them as challenges and opportunities for success. Exploring the examples of men of God throughout the Bible, this study will challenge you to lay down your excuses, stop compromising, and fight to be a man of character and commitment. Despite your setbacks, failures, and pressures, you can still find purpose, meaning, and direction in life and become the man God has called you to be.
WOMEN: join us in the conference room.
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. A cunning, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you – your emotions, your mind, your family, your future. But…when the enemy meets a woman dressed for the occasion, he fails miserably. Join Priscilla Shirer in this 7-session Bible study that will challenge you to suit up, stand firm, and secure victory in your life.
