Women’s Study:  Secrets of a Joyful Heart
Facilitators: Brooke Gibson & Connie Ashmore

Based on Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts, this study invites ladies to “leave the parched ground of pride, fear, and white-knuckle control and abandon yourself to the God who overflows your cup.” Through beginning a practice of chronicling gifts, Voskamp learned to wake up to God’s everyday blessings. Embark with other women on this journey of exploring what it means to find joy in what really matters.  Meets in Fellowship Hall


Men’s Study:  Authentic Manhood
Facilitators: Bill Rose & Robert Allen

Building off the men’s fraternity material created by Dr. Robert Lewis, the teaching team of Bryan Carter, Tierce Green, and John Bryson lead men through an exploration of God’s manhood mandates. This study offers a clear definition of what it means to be a real man patterned after Christ. Join other men as they journey together in understanding God’s design for them.  Meets in Room 309


Couple’s Study:  Raising Kingdom Kids
Facilitators: Kevin & Hilarie Bain

Dr. Tony Evans contends that it is far easier to shape a child than to repair an adult. In this study, Pastor Evans equips parents to “sidestep worldly distractions and focus on raising kids who will make an eternal impact.” Amid the busyness of life and the challenges of parenthood, come alongside other parents in this study as they contemplate how to better raise kids who recognize and retain their identity as children of the King.  Meets in Youth Room 303


Group Study:  What is Your Divine Design? 
Facilitators: Bobby & Kathy Clanton

A tremendous blessing in the lives of believers exists in learning about and growing in their God-given gifts. Take the time with other Christians to explore how God has uniquely designed you and consider the way(s) in which the Lord wants to use you to advance Christ’s Kingdom. Become a Christ-follower who better understands and uses his or her gifts for the glory of God.  Meets in Room 312B


Theological Study:  Doctrine of the Bible 
Facilitator: Timothy Gibson

As Christians, we not only need to know what we believe, we need to know why we believe it. The starting point for a Christian worldview rests upon the perspective we hold of Scripture. Is it the inspired Word of God? Why must it be the authority over our belief and practice? How do we properly interpret it? What response can we offer to those who question the Bible’s validity? Let us grapple together with this foundational doctrine of our faith.  Meets in Room 304B
