Noted Bible scholar N.T. Wright shows us how Christians today have lost sight of what the “good news” of the Gospel really is. In Simply Good News, he takes us back in time to reveal how the people of the first-century, the Gospel’s original audience, would have received Jesus’ message. He offers a clear and thoughtful analysis of what the “good news” really is, and applies it to our lives today, revealing its power to transform us. This study, facilitated by Susann Smith, will begin on Monday, October 29. It begins at 9:30 a.m. in Rawlins Hall. Copies of the book will be available for sale in the Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Begins Thursday, August 30 at 9:30 a.m.
You don’t have anything to prove. Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don’t measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don’t have to be. In this eight-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don’t have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. Discover how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the living water. Join Rev. Joy Roberson on Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. to walk through this video series. A study guide is available in the Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Begins Thursday, October 25 at 9:30 a.m.
In this five-session video Bible study, bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to love everybody the way Jesus loved them–without fear, insecurity, or restriction. This begins by loving people right where you are – through serving and helping the neighbors God has placed into your world. It means loving people when they mess up and helping them move past the place of shame to acceptance. It continues by being courageous and following where God leads one step at a time–even if you feel you are flying blind. Above all, it means not only agreeing with Jesus, but actually stepping out and doing what Jesus said. Join Rev. Joy Roberson on Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. to walk through this book and video series. A study guide is available in the Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Begins Monday, September 10 at 9:30 a.m.
They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Join facilitator Susann Smith in walking through Adam Hamilton’s search for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés to the message and ministry of Jesus. The clichés include:
* Everything happens for a reason.
* God helps those who help themselves.
* God won’t give you more than you can handle.
* God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
* Love the sinner, hate the sin.
This study will begin on Monday, September 10 and end on October 22 – no class on October 8. Copies of the book will be available for sale in the Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Begins Thursday, August 30 at 9:30 a.m.
Relationships are messy. We’re all different and imperfect, and we can struggle to get along–especially with those who disagree with us. Often, we find ourselves divided, even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?
Join facilitator Gwen Zelewski for a seven-week study of First Corinthians and delve into the apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians in search of answers on how to get along with one another. You’ll discover that the only way to deal with disagreements, differences, and divisions is by living out the radical love of Jesus Christ. You can find peace and harmony when you disagree. The study will be held August 30 through October 11 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Companion study guides can be purchased in our Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Begins Thursday, October 18 at 9:30 a.m.
How do we respond in difficult times? Do we turn to God or turn away from Him?
Join facilitator Gwen Zelewski for a seven-week study that will challenge us to be faithful during difficult times and to know the Holy Spirit will enable us to discern what is true and what is false. The study will be held October 18 through November 15 and January 10 through January 17 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Companion study guides can be purchased in our Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Begins Wednesday, October 24 at 6 p.m. in Room 2235
As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed… not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant—filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy. In this six-week Bible study, Hayley DiMarco walks us through the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, who knew what it was like to be overwhelmed. As we explore Mary’s life—from the news that she would give birth to God’s Son, to the day she witnessed his tragic death on the cross—we find ourselves on a journey from overwhelming joy to overwhelming sorrow and back again, learning along the way how to be consumed with the mission of God rather than the “mission of me.” Join facilitator Kara Hayter on Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. to walk through this video series. A study guide is available in our Circuit Writers bookstore.
Begins Wednesday, August 29 at 6 p.m.
All of us know what it’s like to be hurt or betrayed. Often, it’s a small breach such as being spoken to rudely or overlooked in a time of need. Other times, we experience lies, gossip, or harsh words that cut us to the core. Some of us have endured unspeakable pain through abuse, adultery, or abandonment. God knows the pain we cause each other and longs to help us learn to practice forgiveness. Nowhere do we see forgiveness played out more fully in Scripture than in the biblical story of Joseph. This study explores what God has to say about grace and forgiveness through Joseph’s story of trial and triumph. As we study his dreams, his betrayers, his dysfunctional family, his struggle to forgive, and his journey toward reconciliation, we’ll find truths that echo into our own personal situations. This study will be facilitated by Kara Hayter.
Beginning on September 5th at 9 a.m. in Room 3204

Join our ministry for women of all ages and stages of life. Generations Groups are small groups of eight to 10 women, ranging in age from early 20s to 80+. Groups will meet one to two times per month for fellowship and to discuss issues relative to women of all ages.
It is our hope that over time, lasting bonds and intergenerational friendships will form within each group as the women share their joys and challenges, wisdom and skills, and provide support to friends from other generations.
“These groups can be transformational for many of our women who don’t have family around and yearn for the wisdom and vitality found in other generations,” encouraged Rev. Joy Roberson, Pastor of Women’s Ministry.
Forms are available at the information desks and in the Adult Education building. Generations Groups are open to all women and church membership is not a requirement. Contact: Marla Hampton
