It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way by Lysa Terkeurst
Teacher: Chrissie Dunham | Room A113

Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? Bible teacher Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands daily disappointments and life-altering loss. By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings. In this class, you’ll find a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living between Eden and eternity.

Precept: Genesis Chapters 1 & 2 by Kay Arthur
Teacher: Jacqueline McNamer | Room A111

Let’s start at the beginning of beginnings with Genesis and let Him witness to us what He did. We will be immersing ourselves in the biblical account of creation, learning to know our Creator in deeper ways, and increasing our awe of Him. Join us in exploring chapters 1 and 2, how the world was created, and how man came into being.

International Women’s Study: Healing a Wounded Heart by June Hunt
Teacher: Bobette Boyd | Room A112

Nothing cuts to the core of our being as deep as rejection. Even death, though heartbreaking, doesn’t leave such lasting wounds. Have you, too, walked this lonely road? Never sharing with anyone the hurts hidden in your heart? Your silent cry for acceptance and deep need for closeness? Discover whether or not you are controlled by the fear of rejection. Identify the outer signs of rejection often seen and felt by others. Stop the cycle of rejection and replace it by reaching out to others. Jesus, too, dealt with rejection. Is your identity in the Lord because of your relationship with Him? Learn how He can hold you in His compassionate hands. Join us in seeking His truth in this difficult journey of discovery and healing.

The Amazing Collection: The Major Prophets and the Early Minor Prophets by Pat Hurley
Teacher: Suzy Bastian | Room W207

It has been said that no other section of the Bible offers such a majestic and highly exalted picture of God! Get ready to meet once again the God of prophecies as they unfold in your study of the Major Prophets. As you study the following books, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah and Micah, be prepared for gripping and graphic portrayals of both God and man: Hosea’s picture of God’s love for His adulterous people symbolized by the prophet’s love for his adulterous wife; Jonah’s portrayal of himself as disobedient, runaway prophet pursued by a patient God; Amos’s colorful visions of God’s judgment that would come because of his continued disobedience; Obadiah’s classic portrait of pride; and so much more.

Faith vs. Weight by Maria Bower
Teacher: Maria Bower | Room A113

This Christian-based behavior modification program inspires a balanced approach to health and fullness of life. The program is a transformational journey based on faith, behavior modification, nutrition and fitness. Each week, participants are inspired through Scripture and coached through scientifically backed behavior modification techniques to improve their mind-set regarding what is possible when it comes to attaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle through improved nutrition and fitness. Weekly action plans are provided, guiding participants to take an honest look at whether their lifestyle choices are enhancing or undermining all that they are capable of achieving on their faith journey.

Really Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs
Teacher: Jenn Smith | Room A112

The Medium of En Dor crossed over to the dark side. Jael stood up to a ruthless enemy. The Adulteress was caught between a rock and a hard place. Athaliah made a bid for power that ended badly. Bathsheba captured the wandering eye of a king. Herodias made a cruel request of her husband. Tamar exchanged her widow’s weeds for a harlot’s garb. And the Bleeding Woman had a serious health issue only the Great Physician could handle. Eight of the Bible’s most notorious females strut across the pages with troubles that still hit home in the 21st century.

Hosea by Jennifer Rothschild
Teacher: Carol Lyon | Room A111

Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life-message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. The study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. It provides background to better understand the intricacies of the man and his message. You’ll be guided to understand, but more especially to apply the message of the prophet of love. The book will challenge us with judgment so harsh it will singe our hair—an unheeded sermon warning of devastating doom shortly to come. But it will show us the kind of love we dream about. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouse—and more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hope—hints and portents pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah.

The Faithful by Shirer, Minter, Moore, Rothschild, Harper (begins March 26)
Teacher: Anslie Dysart | Room A111

Thousands of years after the men and women of the Old Testament walked the earth, we still can learn from their examples. We can learn to live in the reality of what is hoped for. We can learn to trust in the One who is faithful. As we study the lives of four men and one woman who demonstrated obedience and trust in the steadfastness of our God, we hope you will be encouraged. God fulfills His promises—every last one. He is worthy of our faith, our trust, and our hope.

Precept: Daniel Chapters 7–12 by Kay Arthur (coed)
Teacher: Nancy Chapman | Room W204

If you want to know for yourself what the future holds prophetically, you could not begin with a better study. Daniel is God’s general blueprint for all prophecy. Every event will find its place in the overall scheme of events laid out in Daniel 7–12. This study will pay great dividends on your investment of time as you discover truth for yourself. You will gain understanding of the end times and sense the urgency of Jesus’ mandate to redeem the time because He is coming—we only have this life to prepare for that glorious day. Press on so you will hear His “well done.” May we know that power, the power of Truth,

Precept: John Chapters 12-21 by Kay Arthur (coed)
Teacher: Linda Sims | Room A110

Join us for an in-depth study of John 12–21 for some of the most enlightened teaching found in God’s Word on the intimacy with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that belongs to a child of God. Learn what Jesus meant when He said that He had come so we might have life and have it more abundantly. Newcomers welcome! Homework required.

You will not be asked to serve more than once during the semester.

MOMs Study: Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas
Teacher: Shannon Glass and Mentoring Moms | Loft 456 (3rd Floor, Children’s Ministry Building)

Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust Him more fully, and love Him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy … but holy? Sacred Marriage doesn’t just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians need most is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, Church history, time-tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today’s marriages. Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God’s presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more.

The Faithful by Shirer, Minter, Moore, Rothschild, Harper
Teacher: Gerry Roy | Room A210-211 OR Teacher: Leah Neale | Room A111

Nehemiah by Kelly Minter
Teacher: Carol Young | Room A112

Nehemiah’s heart was so broken for those in need that he left the comfort of his Persian palace to help them. Through seven sessions and real-life ways to put your faith into action, Nehemiah will position your heart to let God break it for a hurting, lost world and move you in compassion to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

God of Creation by Jen Wilkin
Teacher: Kleina Fellemende | Room A113

The opening lines and chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word. Dive into the first 11 chapters of Genesis by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.
