Dinner starts at 5:15 p.m. and classes start at 6:15 p.m. See you there! The One Another Church – Starting September 17  The New Testament describes nearly 30 different forms of “one anothering.” From admonishing and encouraging to forbearing and forgiving, from caring and serving to greeting and welcoming, we are to be a community connected by our acts of love to one another. This class will explore ten of the “one anothers,” looking at their biblical context and then applying them to our life together in church.  Bill Teague is the teacher. Believe: Think – Starting September 17  Believe is a ten-week study through the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. A video- and discussion-based class, Believe will help participants learn how the story of the Bible helps us think by examining key questions, studying Scripture, and learning practical ways to apply the concepts to everyday life. Perfect for believers young in their faith, new church members, and those who want a refresher course in the basics! Led by Marcos Ortega. Beginnings for Beginners – Starting September 17  If you are new to the Bible please join us for a fascinating survey through its first book, Genesis. This five-week course will explore the intriguing stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. We will discuss the content of each story but even more importantly we will discover the “why” behind each narrative as God begins to set the world stage for the arrival of his Son. Bob Taylor is the teacher.
