Led by Pastor Alberto Bent, Choir Room
Can't read music but love to sing to the Lord? Not a problem! We would love to have you join us two Sunday mornings a month as we sing together to praise the Lord and lead the congregation in worship. We will also prepare special services such as Christmas and Easter. Come and make a joyful noise unto the Lord with us. We practice twice a month before the Sundays on which we'll lead worship.
Disciples Who Make Disciples
Taught by Elder John Dobbs and Brock Hilliard, Room 234
We have the joy of following the Lord’s command to make disciples. His Church has grown over the millennia because men and women have walked in obedience to this command. Join Brock Hilliard and John Dobbs this Fall as we learn practical ways to be a disciple who makes disciples. The expectation is that each person will proactively apply this learning and commits to participating in all ten classes. “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others”(2 Timothy 2:2 NIV).
Question of the Week – See the topic schedule below.
Taught by a team of leaders, The Sanctuary
The Bible provides insight and instructions for a variety of topics. Sometimes questions about Christ and Christianity are difficult and complicated. Sometimes they are easy. Everyone experiences good things and bad things in life and work, leaving us with questions about why something happened, how we can handle a specific situation, and/or wondering what God's design is for us and the world. Each of the questions stands alone so you can attend those weeks that answer specific questions you have, or, even better, attend the entire series to help prepare you to answer questions someone may ask of you.

Question of the Week Class Topic Schedule
How do we know the Bible is true?
Taught by Dr. David Palmer
At least 35 authors wrote books of the Bible over multiple centuries. Many of the authors did not walk with Christ or even live when He did. This class will provide information to help you understand the Bible as a book of faith rooted in the truth. What you learn can increase your understanding of the Bible and increase your confidence in talking about it.
Where are key Biblical locations now?
Taught by Elder Don Angel and Lyle Fiore
If you have ever wondered where the Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Jerusalem, and other Biblical locations are, this class is for you. Learn where to find some of the Bible’s most notable locations.
How are the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit different?
Taught by Dennis Metzger, retired pastor
We hear about the Trinity: Father (God), Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit. They are one and yet they are three. How can that be? This session will explore each member of the Trinity as one, as separate entities, and provide examples of how they act in your life.
Who is Jesus? Where is He? What is He doing now?
Taught by Mike Owen, Ph.D. Divinity candidate
We may recognize Jesus’ name and know that He died for our sins. Beyond that, who is He really? In this session we will learn how Jesus spent His time and dive into where He lives, and what He is doing now.
Why did Jesus have to suffer for my sins?
Taught by Dr. Christine Palmer
In this session, we will explore why Jesus had to die for our sins and why He had to die the kind of death He did. In addition, we will discuss how Jesus’ death forgave our sins and what we must do to be saved.
Why do bad things happen to good people?
Taught by Pastor Scott Burns
The answer to this question is not simple, “No one is good for all have sinned.” This question is sincerely asked through the lens of people who have done all they can to obey God’s law, follow the rules, and have done the right things, so to speak. This session will appeal to people who are grieving a serious illness or the death of a loved one, their own personal issues, and/or a situation they see in the country or world.
What does the Bible say about family?
Taught by our Pastor for Children and Families Sara O’Connor
What does the Bible say about work?
Taught by Elder Don Angel and Lyle Fiore
Most of humanity has to work to survive and thrive. What should our outlook on work be? Is it a blessing all the time?
Why does the Bible talk about money?
Taught by John Jordan, Deacon Chair
Money is the second most discussed topic in the Bible. We will explore what it means for our spiritual lives.
What does it mean to live like a Christian? What are the benefits of doing so?
Taught by Carlene Naughton, Elder
Christians strive to live a Godly life and to model Christ’s actions. This class will explore what living a Christian life means including reflecting on what exactly a Christian is, what rules if any, Christians have to follow, and the benefits of living a Christian life.
