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.

Evidences For Faith In God (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
11:15 A.M.
Auditorium
Faith is not blind, but based on evidence (Hebrews 11:L1, 6). It is important to know the evidence in order to maintain one's own faith, hope, and confidence of salvation (1 John 5:13). Additionally, the world in which we live is often both skeptical and critical about people who believe in God, Jesus Christ, and the Bible. This is why each Christian needs to "...Be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect," (1 Peter 3:15). The intent of the class is to help each Christian think about and recognize the evidence for what they believe.


"The God Of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Young Adults)
 Marty Findley
11:15 A.M.
Room 101
This class will be a study of God as He is displayed in the Old Testament with special focus on the spoken words of God. Key texts will be taken from the Major and Minor Prophets and the Books of the Law. At the close of the class, students will have abetter understanding of who God is.


King David and His Mighty Men (All Adults)
Joseph O. Anderson
11:15 A.M.
Room 115

After the death of Saul and Jonathan, David was anointed as the rightful King over Israel and Judah. David's journey to the throne was not without challenges. He and his mighty men were victorious in battles. David also experienced challenges in his household due to his own sin. Yet, he was called a man afer God's own Heart.

1 Thessalonians:  Appeal To Faithfulness (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
7:30 P.M.
Auditorium
Paul's letter to the young Church in Thessalonica is important for us today. Like us, these Early Christians were experiencing daily social pressures, conflicts, and temptations. The letter is both instructional and practical. Paul is writing about his thankfulness for the brethren, his exhortation to holy godly living, and encourages faithfulness until the Lord's return. During this class students will be encourage to read, to understand the text, and to help motivate a continued faithfulness to our Lord until His return.


Looking Into Acts (All Adults)
Michael D. Anglin
7:30 P.M.
Room 101
Based on the Book of Acts, the class will trace the thrilling story of the beginning and growth of the Church from a few Disciples in Palestine to all the Mediterranean Region. We shall ask how such growth was accomplished, what problems the Church encountered, who comprised the Church, and what those experiences teach us about what we can and should be doing.
