PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT - 1, 2 & 3 John :: Kay Arthur
Leader: Elizabeth Balster (starting Feb. 21)
How do you know if you’re really born again? What does it mean to be holy. . . to love God? Find answers to these and other questions as you take a look back at the fundamentals of Christian beliefs.

FINDING I AM :: Lysa TerKeurst
Leader: Heather Nienow (starting Feb. 7)
What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.

Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.

WHEN GOD & CANCER MEET :: Lynn Eib
Leader: Sara Theisen (on-going)
When God & Cancer Meet is a study for women who need hope and encouragement on their cancer journey, whether newly diagnosed or long-term survivor, caregiver, or friend. Throughout the year we will be discussing Lynn Eib’s books, “When God & Cancer Meet” and “Finding the Light in Cancer’s Shadow”.  Join us as we study God’s Word and experience God’s peace, power, & presence together. 

WHAT LOVE IS  ::  Kelly Minter
Leader: Jessica Kuck (starting Feb. 7)
The letters of 1, 2, & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus.

THE QUEST :: Beth Moore
Leader: Robin Lowe
The Quest is a challenge to accept the invitation. In this excursion with Jesus, Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him. Let the crooked punctuation mark be the map that points you into a closer relationship with the Father.

Thursday Evening StudY 

Studies meet Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:15pm, now-May 16
*There is no childcare available for Thursday evening studies.

WHAT IS TRUTH :: Breaking Ground by BJ Condrey
*This is an early PM study, meeting from 5:30-6:30pm in room 200
Leader: Ann Fahy-Gust and Teresa Smith (starting Jan. 17)
This book was written with the intent of helping new believers establish a basic, Biblical foundation. David wrote, "If the foundations are destroyed, what will the righteous do." Far too many believers remain clueless regarding the basics of following Christ.

JONAH :: Priscilla Shirer
Leader: Kathy Johnson and Angela Kunder (starting Jan. 10)
What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this 7-session Bible study, Priscilla redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God's invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.

LUKE :: Kay Arthur
Leader: Cheryl Steggerda
Jesus made it clear: if you want to be His disciple, you must deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Him. If you are going to follow Christ, you need to know with certainty who you are following, what He is like, what He believed, and how He lived in this troubled world. Knowing Jesus is the beginning of a lifetime adventure.
