First Quarter 2023 Sunday Morning Auditorium Class
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "The Gospel According to Matthew".
Link: Sunday Morning Bible Study Stream
Matthew’s account of the life of Christ is often referred to as the “Gospel of the Kingdom.” While using much Old Testament prophecy to show that Jesus was indeed the Son of David, the Messiah sent into the world, Matthew also puts a great deal of emphasis on discipleship and kingdom citizenship. Join us this quarter as we study the life of Christ through the eyes of one who walked and worked with Jesus during His earthly ministry, and who challenges us to live lives worthy of the kingdom.

Fourth Quarter 2022 Sunday Morning Auditorium Class
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "The Book of Revelation".
Link: Sunday Morning Bible Study Stream
The book of Revelation has suffered more abuse and misuse than perhaps any other book of the New Testament. It is either overlooked in study, because of the perception that it cannot be understood, or it serves as a playground for extremists and fanatics who have forced upon it strange and bizarre interpretations. We will approach this study from the viewpoint that it can be understood, and we will attempt to comprehend its symbolism and imagery by viewing the book through the eyes of its first century recipients.

"A Study of Philippians: Shining as Lights in the World"
This class will be taught by Jeannie Balentine, Christine Smelser, Nikki Smelser, and Teri Wheaton in a classroom.
In the Ladies Class this quarter, we will be studying together through the book of Philippians. In this prison epistle, Paul talks about the attitude and character that should define a Christian - one of peace, joy, unity, and humility. Living out these attitudes is having the mind of Christ. This is a mind focused on glorifying God, serving one another, seeking spiritual things, and finding security in the Lord. This quarter, we'll seek to study more about these things and hopefully come away with the goal of thinking and living more like our Savior, bringing glory to our Father in all things.
