As a diverse group of followers, we encourage one another on our walk with Jesus, support each other through our trials, and abundantly celebrate every joy together. When it comes to the Bible, its history, and its wisdom, we are an inquisitive and passionate group – diving deep in thoughtful study, active listening, respectful discussions, considerate discernment, and prayerful reflection. The Community Class does enjoy getting together with 4X4 dinner groups, pot-luck lunches, an occasional square dance. dinner on the docks, community service, and other class gatherings spread out throughout the year.

Pursuit

Meeting Location: B209

Facilitated by four mentor couples, the Pursuitclass focuses on biblical issues surrounding relationships and discipleship with an emphasis on individuals, couples, and young families in their late 20s through early 40s. Most of our couples are “young married” and have started their family.

Our teaching pursues Christ-center and mission focused discipleship; is led by one of our five mentor couples, a class member, or a guest teacher; and is always scripture based with a lot of discussion. Periodically we have a panel discussion during which our mentor couples field questions from class members. We sponsor several small group Bible studies and three community groups; support one missionary family; have organized socials; participate in ongoing service opportunities; and seek to care for and shepherd\one another.

Saints Alive

Meeting Location: B139

The Saints Alive Class, each Sunday, consists of a good time of fellowship over coffee and snacks, a time of updating prayer needs, and a time of Bible Study, either topical or from a particular book of the Bible.  We are currently engaged in a series entitled “Exploring the Holy Spirit” since Galatians 5 teaches us to walk in the Spirit and keep in step with the Spirit.   A hallmark of the class is hoping to make everyone feel welcome from the moment they enter the classroom.  We are primarily aged 60+, but not entirely, so all are invited, and we have several each week who join the class by Zoom.  Going forward, we will remain Bible-based, placing emphasis on personal growth, discipleship, and ministry to others. We are located down the Missions Hallway, just past the Welcome Desk and Welcome Center. Please contact Randy Overbey (865-805-7870) or at overbrm@comcast.net with any questions.
