Jesus said that students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher (Luke 6:40). As His disciples, we want to grow in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15). Finding our identity in Him (2 Corinthians 5:14-17). And learning to love as He first loved us (1 John 4:19). According to Jesus it’s by this love that others will know we are His disciples (John 13:35). It’s therefore not a surprise that His love motivates us to provide multiple ways in which people of all ages learn what it means to follow Jesus. For where Baptism begins this new life by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of infants and adults, it’s through the study of God’s Word that we learn to love Him along with the people He has placed in our life (2 Timothy 3:14-17). It’s why we are committed to providing Christian education as a means by which His disciples can live and grow and mature.

Thursday Evening Adult Study: The Truth Project
This is an invitation to participate in a very unique Bible study this summer entitled The Truth Project. Many of you are familiar with this study by Focus on the Family and have taken it previously. However in talking with several of the people who have taken it, the common theme seems to be that there is so much to learn and absorb, that it would be worthwhile to take it again.
If you haven’t done this study, you are in for a real treat. It is a course that defines moral values from a Biblical perspective It challenges us to think about the way we live our lives based on Biblical truths.
The Truth Project study begins by stating that today's believers live very similarly to non-believers. A personal sense of significance is rarely experienced, we spend our money and time on things that fail to satisfy and we begin to wonder what life's ultimate purpose really is. We are, in short, losing our bearings as a people and a nation.
Each topic is presented via DVD followed by a group discussion led by Byron and Sheryl Hansen. View a summary of each topic by clicking on the Truth Project post on our website home page.
This study meets Thursdays in the Friendship Hall from 6:30 to 8:30PM.
The Daniel Prayer: Wednesday Evening Women's and Men's Bible Study
ABOUT THE DANIEL PRAYER
In Daniel chapter nine, Daniel poured out his heart in prayer. What happened? Heaven was moved, a nation was changed, and generations felt the impact. This is the kind of prayer that’s possible for your life, and one that Anne Graham Lotz will help you understand in The Daniel Prayer.
The Daniel Prayer is not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. Or it can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer. A promise freshly received. A miracle that lies just over the horizon. But whether you pray out of triumph or tragedy, The Daniel Prayer works.
This book, based on Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9, will help you pray effectively for your nation, for your family, and for yourself. Anne answers questions such as:
- How do I know the God to whom I pray will listen?
- How do I know God cares about my prayer?
- How do I know God will answer my prayer?
- Why should I pray?
- Does it matter where I am when I pray?
- Are words in prayer all that matter, or does my attitude affect prayer?
- What difference does my prayer make?
Led by Carol Larson, this 7-week study meets Wednesdays at 6:30PM in the Friendship Hall, beginning June 14.
