Studies + Classes

We believe that authentic growth in the Christian faith happens in a community where we gather to study and learn what it means to live as disciples of Christ. Classes and studies vary in length from 4 to 34 weeks, depending on the specific study. Looking for a Sunday School class? We have a number of classes ranging in age, marital status, and discussion topics.

  • Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water and
    Loving the Bible Again

    Mondays beginning September 27, 1-2:30 p.m., via Zoom

    If the Bible isn’t a science book or an instruction manual, then what is it? When Rachel Held Evans found herself asking these questions, she began a quest to better understand what the Bible is and how it is meant to be read. What she discovered changed her and it will change you too.

    Undaunted by the Bible’s most difficult passages, Evans wrestles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating Scripture’s mysteries. The Bible, she discovers, is not a static work but is a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book that is able to equip us to join God’s loving and redemptive work in the world.

    Registration will be available soon.

  • Grace 101

    Sundays, 10:45 a.m., A389

    Are you looking for a place to connect to others and learn more about your faith? We have new options following our 9:15 a.m. band-led worship. No registration is necessary! Just show up!

    In this 4-week class led by Jason Alteri we will be analyzing the concept of “grace” and exploring each of the different forms of grace that John Wesley articulated: prevenient, justifying, and sanctifying. During each session we will ask three questions: “What?,” “Why?,” and “Apply?” — looking to Scripture to answer foundational questions of “what” and “why,” and examining how we can apply these concepts to our lives.

  • Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels

    Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

    For Mark, Jesus is the “Hidden Messiah and the Eschatological Judge.” For Matthew, Jesus is “A Teacher Greater Than Moses.” For Luke, “A Savior of All Nations.” Join Dr. Domenic Nigrelli for a 5-week study on the synoptic gospels in the Bible. Together, we'll seek answers to the question: "Who is Jesus Christ: then and now?"
