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.

Spring Classes: Sundays
(March 2 - May 25)

Luke: Jesus Came to Seek and Save (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
11:15 A.M.
Auditorium
The purpose of the Gospel of Luke may be obvious to most of us; it's to tell us about Jesus' Life, Death, and Resurrection. Yet there are numerous themes that have been observed in Luke, but one of the primary themes is stated in Luke 19:10: "For the Son of Man Came to Seek and to Save What Was Lost." Luke records events in Jesus' Life that particularly stresses how salvation is for all people - Including non-Jews - and in Acts Luke tells the rest of the story. Therefore God's people need to have the same sense of Mission - Salvation is for all. Even though the class will not be a verse study of Luke, the intent is for every student to read the whol Gospel. There will be a short daily reading assignment throughout the spring quarter. The Goal of this class is to encourage everyone to read the Gospel of Luke, to acquire a good understanding of earthly Jesus' mission and to insprire each student to see how Jesus' mission translate into their own life.


"The Power Of A Woman's Words (Ladies)
 Isabelle Williamson
11:15 A.M.
Church Annex
This study is for every Woman who desires to use her words to build up rather than tear down, to encourage rather than discourage,, to cheer rather than Jeer.  It is for all who desire to have more control over that mighty force called the tongue.  We will be studying the impact our words have on our families, friends, fellow Christians and the world.


Practical Christianity:  The General Epistle of James (All Adults)
Earle West
11:15 A.M.
Room 115

Students will study the book of James with emphasis on understanding the text, then making application to our lives and service Christians.  The goal of this study is to understand the text of James and Nudge each of us more fully toward the behaviors and attitudes which James discusses, and secondarily to introduce a method of studying the Epistles for improved personal study.

Ezra and Nehemiah (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
7:30 P.M.
Auditorium
One of the greatest reformations in the history of God’s people was when the Jews returned to Palestine after the Babylonian exile. Ezra deals with the rebuilding of the Temple of God and Nehemiah the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. Although in the process of fixing buildings, these great leaders helped rebuild God’s people by reform and restoration in the midst of local opposition and the temptation to succumb to religious and moral syncretism. We can learn, from their struggles, some godly ways to help us grow and mature spiritually Today students will learn about one of the most important reformations in the history of God’s people and strive to encourage one another to see that spiritual growth and maturity are made up of individuals choosing to recommit ourselves and fully submit to God’s plan.


A Survey Of The Psalms (All Adults)
Michael D. Anglin
7:30 P.M.
Room 101
"This class will examine different types of Psalms in the Old Testament such as Creation, History, Forgiveness, Worship, Etc. The goal of this study will be to motivate students to appreciate the practical value of the Psalms and to motivate each of us to read and study them more frequently than ever before.
