Tuesday Evenings 7:00pm - 9:00pm
1, 2, and 3 John
7-week Bible study on Tuesdays from 7:00-9:00pm. The first hour of our study is made up of sharing what we have learned from the previous week's assignment of a designated portion of Scripture. The second hour is watching a DVD teaching of the same passage of Scripture for deeper understanding. The eighth and final meeting of the semester is a time of fellowship at a local restaurant.
Written by John the Elder to house church believers, the gospel of John emphasizes that God is light and love and every true believer will demonstrate God's light and love. Each book also addresses deceivers, teachers who no longer acknowledge that Jesus is the Messiah or Son of God but spread fear and division among believers.
Tuesday Evenings 7:00pm - 9:00pm
The Commands of Christ
Every Tuesday night during the school year, we meet from 7-9 PM in Room 205 to study the Commands of Christ, forty-nine "action statements" from Jesus, who said "If you love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15). Keeping these commands begins with recognizing what they are. Each week, we study one command (and its corresponding character quality), learning how to apply it in order to faithfully follow Jesus throughout our lifetimes. See dailysuccess.org for more information on this study.
All men are welcome; our group is primarily comprised of professional marrieds (ages 40-60, with teenagers and/or grown children). The study and discussions are facilitator-led, and everyone is encouraged to participate.

Kingdom Man, by Tony Evans
When a man follows the principles of biblical manhood, those around him benefit from his leadership and care. Kingdom Man challenges and equips men to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them. The biblical definition of a man is one who has learned to operate under the authority of Jesus Christ while carrying out responsible and legitimate leadership within the sphere of influence that God has placed him. Kingdom Man provides concepts men can follow that will help them to actively pursue ways to maximize and develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives.
Thursdays from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Come join us as we study God’s Word verse by verse. The study will take about 30 weeks. We read the Word, put it into the context of Biblical history and culture and then discuss how it applies to our lives.
The Book of Romans is a four-part explanation of the Gospel message written by Paul to the Church in Rome. Since Adam, humans chose to live sinful and selfish lives. The people of Israel tried to obey God and follow the Law, but they didn't succeed. Only faith in Jesus' death and resurrection can justify humanity and fulfill God's promise to create a covenant relationship with His people, the descendants of Abraham.
Thursdays 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Translated as 'origin' from the Greek word, the Book of Genesis tells us how everything began from humanity's history to the world we know today. One could call this the 'problem statement' for humanity, one the rest of the Bible will be answering.
It reveals a dramatic prologue of God's love for us, the tragedies of sin and the human race, and God initiating a brilliant plan to win us back from the clutches of darkness. He does this by passing down a covenant blessing through Abraham and his family, including Isaac, Jacob, and other individuals, in order to bless all the families of the earth. These descendants will become the foundation for the Nation of Israel and Jesus the Messiah who will bring salvation for all of humanity.
Fridays from 6:30am-7:30am
Gospel of John
Throughout the Gospel of John, we see that Jesus is God and the reality toward which all of Israel's history points. Not only is He the Messiah, but He's also the Son of God who gives eternal life to everyone who believes on His name.
We see this reality through the signs and miracles He performs, and seven times He answers "I Am" when people question His identity.
He also uses His time on earth to introduce people to the new birth. By believing that He is the Messiah and God's son, they have eternal life and freedom from sin and are empowered to perform radical acts of kindness, generosity and selfless love as they listen to His voice and obey Him.
Fridays from 6:30am - 8:00am
Overview of I and II Corinthians
Our belief that Jesus was raised from the dead makes the gospel more than moral advice or a recipe for private spirituality. It opens a whole new reality for every area of our life.
Paul addressed problems in the Corinth church in I Corinthians, but many rejected his advice. He followed up with a painful visit and then sent them II Corinthians, a letter that assured them he forgave and loved them. After reading the letter, many church members repented and embraced the letter's message.
Essentially, it challenges believers to see life through the paradox of the cross. Because of the cross and God's Spirit, Jesus' followers receive power to live transformed lives. They become equipped to take up Jesus' cruciform life and make it their own.
