Christianity 101Led by Kevin Godin

Guidance - Discerning the Will of GodLed by Jeff LeDuc

There’s a time to pray, a time to consult, a time to gather information, but there is also a time to decide. Sometimes this is forced upon us, and sometimes we just must decide and get on with living out our Christian lives and trusting God. Sometimes we’re asked to make decisions – even large ones – based on less information or confidence than we’d like. But we need to remember that God is sovereign, in control and He loves us. He is about the business of spiritual growth and maturity—and sometimes we simply need to make a decision to the best of our ability and trust Him for what happens. 

God, Man, & MoneyLed by Mark Burton

The Heart of a LeaderLed by Troy Jackson

Everyone is a leader, the question is where are you leading them. You are leading anytime you seek to influence the thinking, behavior, or development of someone- whether they are friends, children, parents, coworkers, bosses, neighbors, or strangers. The most important part of a leader – is your heart – and whether or not it is connected to God. During this 4 week study, we will dispel the myths of leadership while applying practical strategies to ensure we are following the greatest leadership example of all time: Jesus.

Living for Christ in the Era of the Smartphone (Youth Class)Led by Joey Snodgrass

We will be taking four weeks to look at how we ought to live our lives for Christ's glory and how smartphones can be used to do just that. We will discuss both the benefits and the drawbacks of technology for teenagers' spiritual vitality. This study will be largely based on the book 12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You by Tony Reinke. Though this study will look at how our phones should help us and not control us, it will still be beneficial for those who do not have smartphones.
