2 Corinthians: Comfort, Deliverance and Hope

First Quarter 2021 Wednesday Bible Class Syllabus.
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "2 Corinthians: Comfort, Deliverance and Hope"

Link: Wednesday Evening Bible Study Stream

Paul’s second letter to the saints at Corinth has been referred to as the most personal, open, and intimate of all his letters. He truly bares his soul as he speaks of hardship, emotional pressure, and physical abuse. But through all of this we see what really motivated Paul and why he went trough all he did: his love for his brothers and sisters in Christ, his love for the gospel, and his love for God.

Fourth Quarter 2020 Classes (Previous Quarter)


Study of the Book of Job

Fourth Quarter 2020 Sunday Bible Class Syllabus.
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "1 Corinthians: Equipped for Love and Unity"

Link: Sunday Evening Bible Study Zoom

In keeping with our 2020 theme of "Equipped for Good Works" we will finish out the year by studying "1 Corinthians: Equipped for Love and Unity." The church at Corinth was very much like many churches today: comprised of Christians from different religious, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds. They were not immune from being influenced by the culture in which they lived and the prevailing thoughts of the exaltation of man's wisdom. We can learn much in our local congregations by studying how the apostle Paul addressed these issues, writing to a church he knew well and loved dearly.

Learning to Pray: Lessons from the Prayers of Paul

Fourth Quarter 2020 Wednesday Evening Class
Class Title is "Learning to Pray: Lessons from the Prayers of Paul".

Link: Wednesday Evening Bible Study Stream

The Gospel of Mark was written to show that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God (1:1). With no prologue, Mark immediately jumps into the narrative, carrying the reader from event to event with continuous action. The book is intended to be experienced, as if we are part of the very first century audience who saw Jesus and were “amazed,” “critical,” “puzzled,” and “astonished.”
