Gearing Up: Gender Roles Class - Room 204/206

April 15th - April 29th, 2018

Exploring Gender Roles and the People of God

Have you wrestled to understand some traditional Christian perspectives on gender and specific roles for men and women? How can well-meaning Christians reach such different conclusions on what the bible says? This group will explore gender roles among God’s people, examine key biblical passages and their interpretation, and look to Jesus’ example of how he interacted with women. Our goal is a deeper understanding of God’s word and what it means for all people to live most fully as children of God and as we humbly work together for the kingdom of God.

Life's Healing Choices

May 1st - June 26th, 2018


We've all been hurt by other people, we've hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. And as a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit. But the question we all face is, where do we go from here?

Following the Beatitudes from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, this bible study series teaches the fundamental steps in recognizing and releasing our hurts that keep us from finding real answers, real hope, and enjoying God's promises.

  4. Coming Clean - The Housecleaning Choice

  5. Making Changes - The Transformation Choice

  6. Repairing Relationships - The Relationship Choice
