UNHITCHING FROM THE CRAZY TRAIN” by Julie Sparkman. We all have a picture of how life should go, so we corral and control, determined to make our picture come true and before we know it find ourselves on a crazy ride. We’re hitched to the crazy train, and we want to get off. But how?

“Colossians” Pastor’s Class

Led by Ricky Smith.

In a world with a religion to meet every diverse mood, today’s Christians are no different from those of ancient Colossae. Fighting Jewish legalism mixed with Eastern philosophies, and Gnosticism, Paul called on the Colossian church to stop partaking in the misguided religious practices of their day and to find the one true faith. Join Pastor Ricky Smith as we explore Paul’s letter to the Colossians and find practical and grace filled help to meet the challenges facing us in todays age of religious confusion.

The Story” What’s Your Story/What’s His Story (Pastor’s Study)

In this class:

  • We will learn why our personal story is important
  • We will write out our stories in a 3 minute format as well as a 45 second format,
  • We will learn how to share our stories with others in a practical manner.
  • We will learn how to communicate the gospel message of the Christian Faith in a basic and simple manner that we can easily share with others.

The Bible “How It Came To Be”

Led by Jonathon Watts (married to Charlotte)

How were the books in the Bible chosen? I’ve heard about other books that didn’t make it in. Aren’t those also the Word of God? Why aren’t they considered Scripture, too?

Lots of people are asking these questions today, but these questions are not new. They were being asked in the first hundred years after Jesus’s death and resurrection. Come and explore answers to these questions and more. A fascinating and informative look at how we got our Bible.

**Current Study “Gods At War” by Kyle Idleman

In Gods at War, Kyle Idleman addresses the issue of idolatry in the lives of believers by asking insightful questions that will help you determine which false gods are striving to sit on the throne of your heart. By sharing true and powerful testimonies of those who have struggled with the idols of money, sex, success, food and romance, Idleman clears away the cultural baggage of the 21st century to expose these gods for what they are–rivals to our unhindered devotion to Christ. Discover the freedom that awaits you when you allow the true God to reside unchallenged in your heart and life.
