Our equipping classes are an essential element in helping us fulfill our mission statement. They provide training for our church family to be more competent, committed, and contagious disciples of Jesus Christ as we know God, apply his truth, and help others.


First Quarter • Jan 21–Apr 14

I Timothy

Teacher: Scott Bucher

Location: Generations Building, Chapel
I Timothy is a personal letter from Paul to Timothy, a young man, discipled by Paul. Paul is encouraging Timothy to be sound in his doctrine, courageous in his ministry, and to trust in the power of the gospel. Although the letter is written to a pastor, the letter applies to everyone who wants to live godly in Christ. The class will work through the book, approximately a paragraph each week, with an emphasis on proper interpretation and application.

Discipleship Basics

Teachers: Brendan Tomassian, Andy Woodfield

Location: Worship Center
There is perhaps no area of the Christian life more important than discipleship. Jesus’ command in Matthew 28, the great commission itself, tells us to go and make disciples. Whether you find yourself unsure of where to begin or if you are a seasoned discipler, this class will encourage, challenge, and bless you as you serve the church by diving into every Christian's call to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Exploring Scripture: Minor Prophets

Teachers: Andy Woodfield, Casey Banks
Location: Backstage Boardroom
The minor prophets are short books but packed with powerful messages and themes addressing the sin and judgement of israel even as they remind us of God's unchanging love, sovereignty, and justice. As we study each of them in this class, we will plumb the depths of God’s grace and faithfulness to his people while developing a sober understanding of the sinfulness of mankind. Join us for a study on this often overlooked, yet essential section of God’s Word!
