Class Description

Book 1: Whether you’ve grown up hearing Bible stories or you’re exploring scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming. The 66 books may seem disconnected at first glance. In this study, Angie Smith shows you how the whole Bible – from Genesis through Revelation – connects as one beautiful, seamless thread.

Book 2: We will spend 4 weeks studying the book of Malachi, using the Bible as our textbook. We will hear the word of the Lord spoken to Israel at about 433 BC and discover how it applies to our lives in 2017. What does the Lord tell them? Why is there an urgency in the message? What words of comfort are given to sustain them in the next “400 silent years”? Come join us and find out!

Class Description

Book 1: We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this study, be encouraged to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentioned Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.

Book 2: Do you understand the power of the tongue? Discover the power of the spoken word to bolster your faith when you’re doubting, discern what should and shouldn’t be said so that you honor God with your speech, develop the ability to praise God and voice wisdom even in tough circumstances. Let your words minister to and speak life into the world around you.

Class Description

Book 1: In Looking for Lovely, Annie F. Downs shares personal stories, biblical truth, and examples of how others have courageously walked the path God paved for their lives by remembering all God had done, loving what was right in front of them, and seeing God in the everyday – whether that be nature, friends, or the face they see in the mirror.

Book 2: Dreams, Programs, Jobs, Relationships. There are so many different areas where we feel like calling it quits. It’s time for an honest conversation on how not to give in to the temptation to give up. Nicki Kozlarz is a woman who has thrown in the towel a time or two. In fact, she’s quit just about everything in her life. But with God’s help, she’s discovered a few habits that have helped her and others conquer the choice to quit.

Leader: Rev. Richard Humphries

Location: Ellis Hall

Study: A Study of the Book of Philemon

Length: 5 weeks

Start Date: January 18th

Cost: $5 for breakfast

For more information please call 803.343.8585


Class Description

This brief 25 verse letter is unique in the writings of Paul. Though addressed to Philemon of Colosse, it is not, strictly speaking, a private letter as its content reveals. Yet it is occasioned by a personal problem that the Apostle hopes to resolve. The letter provides an interesting glimpse into the Apostle Paul’s strategy in handling personal issues as they impact the lives of his converts.
