A Fresh New Look at Heaven

June 11- July 30. Westminster Hall, 10:45

What do we know about heaven? Might it be tangible? Will you still be you? Will you remember? Will you recognize loved ones? Where will God be? Might the New Earth be the New Heaven? Come explore with us. Cliff Martin. 

God’s Never-Ending Story with Cliff Martin

Old Testament study in Westminster Hall at 9:15am (last class on April 30)

Explore the Book that claims to be God’s personal revelation. From Genesis to Revelation, follow the historical thread that ties together the major themes of the Bible. This four-part, two-year, intensive overview of the entire Bible will be taught by our very own faithful, wise, and witty Bible scholar, Cliff Martin. 

Liturgical Church Calendar

Westminster Hall, 10:45am

The Calendar assigns texts to each Sunday that revolves around the great events of salvation history, especially in the life of Jesus. We have just passed through Christmas (Jesus birth) and are now in Epiphany (the visitation of the Wise Men). His life is followed as a thematic structure, all the way through the 2nd Advent. Every Sunday revolves around 4 texts (Old Testament, Psalm, Epistle, and Gospel) and a common theme is found in all four texts. Each week, we will trace the common theme of all four texts, which is not always just on the surface, and is often fascinating, and brings new insights to light. Taught by Richard Bledsoe.

Connections Class

Geneva 240  at 9:15am

Join a warm and diverse group of adults – both couples and singles; younger and older; liberal and conservative – committed to walking with one another in following Jesus. We meet together weekly to pray and study topics that are led by various class members. We meet together monthly for social activities that help build our relationships. And we try to serve together during the year to Live Wide and Be Rooted in our community. We welcome newcomers and appreciate the fresh spirit and perspective that they add to our class. We hope you can join us. 


Oerter Hall at 9:15am
Biblical teaching and lively round table discussion! All are welcome! Join us as we explore the
powerful reality of God in relationship with us in the Gospel of John. Taught by Doug & Cindy Smith.
