Bible Course
John Hurt

This series of eight lessons presents an overview of the Bible for the beginning Bible student. Lesson topics include: The Old Testament, The New Testament, Rightly Dividing the Word, Faith & Works, Becoming a Christian, Acceptable Worship, The New Testament Church, and You Can Be Just a Christian.

Studies Through the Bible (A Proven Basic Course)
Monroe E. Hawley

This is a thirty lesson course surveying the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. This series is simple enough to be studied by one with little Bible knowledge, yet comprehensive enough to help the Bible student.

Jesus, by John (His Gospel for Belief)
Wayne Hawley

These ten lessons on the gospel of John are of tremendous value for both the non-Christian investigating Jesus and the disciple taking a fresh look at the Savior. Jesus, by John follows the text of the gospel, showing it to be an eye-witness account of Jesus designed to produce faith. The lessons are understandable enough for the beginner and challenging enough for classes.

Into All the World (A Study of the Book of Acts)
Monroe Hawley

A ten lesson study of the book of Acts of the Apostles. Each lesson requires reading of the Bible in addition to the lesson material.

Foundations of Faith (An Advanced Course)
Monroe Hawley

This thirty lesson study is designed for the student with some previous Bible knowledge. Topics include: There is a God, The Inspiration of the Bible, Why the Bible is God’s Word, Fulfilled Prophecy, Miracles of the Bible, the Nature of Sin, The Resurrection of the Dead.

Christian Way (For the New Christian)
Monroe Hawley

Many Christians never develop spiritually because they have not been taught how to live the Christian life. This ten lesson course presents Christianity as a way of life, not just a catalog of duties. Each lesson is tied to this concept so that the student will gain a broader appreciation of the depth and meaning of his faith.

Through the Bible (Junior Correspondence Course)
Karen Conley

These eight lessons for junior high school age students deals with New Testament subjects such as: The Birth, Boyhood, and Baptism of Jesus; His Teachings and Miracles; His Death, Resurrection, and Ascension; the Beginning of the Church; the Plan of Salvation; Worship; the Christian Life and the Christian Home.

Fall Classes: Sundays
(August 31 - November 23)

Genesis:  Beginnings (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
11:15 A.M.
Auditorium
Genesis is not just stories about God's interaction with ancient human beings before the time of Moses, but it also sets the stage for God's dealings with all people of all times. Genesis presents a worldview by which the rest of the Bible should be understood. Genesis contains inspired stories that help us make sense of our own lives, today. In a general survey of Genesis, we will look at thirteen stories of God's manifestations and workings in people's lives. From which, we will glean some theological and practical truths for our lives today.


"Jesus The Servant (All Adults)
 Harry Scott Cameron
11:15 A.M.
Room 101
Mark writes of the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises of Yahweh coming to pardon - and to rule over - His people (Isaiah 40:1-11).  Jesus turns out to be the eternally ruling Messianic King (2 Samuel 7:16).  Jesus had all the power, but came to earth as a servant.  The objectives of this class are to look at how Christians can be diligent to staying on the path that Jesus the Christ has set for His disciples and to desire to become like Christ once we are fully mature (Luke 6:40) serving God and others.  This class is for Adults teetering between serving God through Jesus the Christ or serving themselves and the world.


The Epistle To The Romans(All Adults)
Jonathan Walker, Sr.
11:15 A.M.
Room 115

The Bible Class will study God's plan of salvation and righteousness for all mankind, Jew and Gentile alike, moreover, the course will analyze our justification through faith which grants us access to God's grace.

Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1 - 7:29) (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
7:30 P.M.
Auditorium
The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) has influenced and changed more people's lives during the past two thousand years than any other writing.  It is ethical, powerful, and immortal.  It is not just a set of rules and guidelines presented by Jesus to teach His followers about what is right and wrong, but it is also about Jesus revealing how Christians need to lovingly act and joyously behave in the Kingdom of God.  It is theological, practical, and relevant for every Christian who seeks to live a life that brings glory and honor to our Heavenly Father.  This class aims to encourage each Brother and Sister in Christ, to reacquaint themselves with Jesus relevant teachings in the Sermon on the Mount, and to motivate all of us to live obediently, confidently, joyously as Children of God.

Michael D. Anglin
7:30 P.M.
Room 101
The class will review vital lessons from this inspired writer of Bible Books with an effort to see practical sessons for us today. The primary scriptures will be from the Gospel of John with several additional lessons from the Epistles of John. The passages to be studied give a wonderful view of how to live a happy, fulfilling life in the Lord and possess a deep confidence in one's salvation.
