How People Change (Room 204) – Based on a book by Timothy Lane and Paul Tripp, this class will explore the biblical pattern for change in a clear, practical way you can apply to the challenges of daily life. But change involves more than a biblical formula: participants will see how God is at work to make you the person you were created to be. This class is helpful to people making changes in their lives or wanting to minister to others relative to God changing their lives. Led by Paul Carter.

Dark Clouds; Deep Mercy (Room 201) - Discovering the Grace of Lament - This class deals with harsh events in our lives and how, using the scriptures of lament, we can bring our hearts before God. The emphasis is on recovering the practice of honest spiritual struggle that gives us permission to vocalize our pain and wrestle with our sorrow...that moves us toward deeper worship and trust. It's a study of bible passages in Psalms and Lamentations. Led by Chad Danner, Mark Stoneburner, and Michael Anderson.

Biblical Apologetics 1st 6 weeks (Room 202) - This six-week course will explore the defending of “the hope within” (1Peter 3:15), contending “for the faith” (Jude 1) and "destroying speculations…against the knowledge of God” (2 Corinth. 10:5) both theologically and philosophically. Week 1 will be an introduction. Weeks 2-6 will engage such topics and Historicity and Reliability of the Scriptures, Miracles and the Resurrection and Science vs Faith. Led by Jerry Bogaz.

Scandalous-2nd 6 weeks - Based on the book Scandalous by D. A. Carson. The focus is the Cross and the Resurrection. Let by Lucas Morel and Curt Wilbur.
