BIO Quench Your Thirst for Life by Chip Ingram
BIO means life. Jesus promises us the life that is truly life, but how do we find it? What does God do and what is our part? This five-week unique series unlocks the Biblical DNA for spiritual momentum: An ongoing commitment to grow before God, in community, and in mission. Join Charles Gee as he leads this group on a journey to discover who Jesus really is and how to quench your thirst for life.
Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling with Questions People Ask by Adam Hamilton
Rev. Adam Hamilton, pastor and author of numerous small-group study curriculums, has written this series that explores four major world religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism. This six-week study will look at these religions and compare the beliefs of each with Christian beliefs. We will deal openly and honestly with questions that people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths. Rev. Ken Barwick will facilitate this group.
Lectionary Study and Discussion
Throughout the Christian year on most Sundays, we use the Revised Common Lectionary to guide our Scripture selection and sermon emphasis in worship. The Lectionary has been used by churches all over the world since the 1700s. Larry Hays will lead the weekly lectionary study and discussion, focusing on the Scriptures for the upcoming Sunday services. This will allow participants to gain deeper insight into the Scriptures, to look at the larger historical and theological contexts, and to have the opportunity to ask questions. Each week is a "stand-alone" session and the only required book is the Bible.
The "Mission Possible" team started in the fall of 2010 in conjunction with Wednesday Night Unplugged. It began as a vision for putting our faith into action. "Mission Possible" offers members an opportunity to serve in short-term mission projects each week. Projects include home-based, community, and outward missions. Led by Mary and I D Hook, this is a wonderful group for persons who need a "stand-alone" class for each week. Come and experience the JOY of reaching out!

March 14, 21, 28, and April 4, we will have four stand-alone sessions for deeper Lenten Preparation. These sessions will be led by Leigh Curry.
