This six-session small group Bible study through RightNow Media captures live and unscripted conversations between Tim Keller and a group of people to address their doubts and objections to Christianity. Using literature, philosophy, and Scripture, Keller and the group explore the truth of Christianity.
Christians will be challenged to wrestle with their friends and neighbors’ hardest questions, and to engage those questions in ways that will spark an honest, enriching, and humbling dialogue. Capture a live and unscripted conversation between Timothy Keller and the six panelists discussing their objections to Christianity. This study will help small groups and individuals dig deeper into the objections of the Christian faith and to learn about both sides of the issues.
“To stay away from Christianity because part of the Bible's teaching is offensive to you assumes that if there is a God he wouldn't have any views that upset you.
Does that belief make sense?"

The Reason For God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism by Timothy Keller
"Success in ministry is not found in building programs but in building disciples—disciples who love God with all of their heart, soul, strength, and mind. Christ is the goal, not better or more impressive ministries. He is what we want.”

God's Big Picture
3/13 - 4/10
"God's Big Picture: Tracing the Storyline of the Bible" follows the story of the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation to see how it all fits together, telling of God's wonderful plan to save the world through Jesus Christ. This 5 week class will show how the different parts of the Bible fit together under the theme of the kingdom of God. You will read the Bible with a new perspective after completing this course.
5/15, 5/22, 6/5, 6/12
We all know the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 – “Go and make disciples.” How are we as a church doing with that task? And how exactly do we make disciples? In this class, we will learn what disciple making is, examine how Jesus did it, and learn how each of us can personally make disciples in the places God has put us in today.
9/25/22 - 10/30/22
Since a global pandemic abruptly closed places of worship, many Christians have skipped church life, even neglecting virtual services. But this was a trend even before COVID-19. Polarizing issues, including political and racial strife, convinced some people to pull away from the church and one another. Now it’s time to recommit to gathering as brothers and sisters in Christ.
