Called and Accountable: Discovering Your Place in God’s Eternal Purpose (Men only)

In Called and Accountable, authors Henry and Norman Blackaby help you explore the life-transforming, world-changing call that God gives you as a follower of Christ.  Just as He did throughout the Bible, God is still calling His people, at this very hour, to accomplish His eternal purposes in redeeming the lost.  God has a unique plan for you to be a part of His mission.  Called and Accountable thoughtfully explores questions such as: Why does God call us?  What is a call?  Who are the called?  How am I called?  When am I called?  How do I live out the call?

Leader: Greg Krausz
Teachers: Varied with each session.  As men feel led, they are
encouraged to volunteer and facilitate a group discussion.

Breath (Women only)

Intergenerational Classes

1 and 2 Peter

The letters of Peter, written to the scattered Church long ago, offer the same encouragement and practical teaching needed for us to live obediently to the call of God today.  Starting in the 1960s, and increasing in the 21st century, American culture has become increasingly hostile towards Christianity and the Church, with no slowing in sight.  While cultures may change, the believers’ reasons for hope and purpose in God will not.  As America departs from the Judeo-Christian comfort zone, believers will experience more tense situations in their daily lives.  Our interactions with coworkers, with classmates, and even our leisure time or the entertainment content that we consume, will all be impacted.  Join us as we re-examine scripture that challenges us to reorder our commitment to God.

Teachers: Terry Conrad, Bob and Betty Wellons

Matthew: It’s the Christ-mas Season!

Matthew 1:21 reads, “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  Matthew’s main purpose in this book is to confirm to his Jewish Christian readers that Jesus is their Messiah … and so it began.  Join us this Christmas season and in the new year as we study the book of Matthew.

Teachers: Loretta Watson and Rich Swirsding
