Ongoing & New Small-Group Classes

How to Hear God

Wednesdays, Feb. 7-March 6
9:30-11 a.m.

Exploring the story of Christ’s playful, poignant conversation on the road to Emmaus after his resurrection, author Pete Greig draws deeply from the insights of a wide range of Christian traditions; weaving together the evangelical emphasis on hearing God in the Bible, and the charismatic commitment to hearing God in the prophetic, with the contemplative understanding of God’s “still, small voice” within. Facilitated by Danielle Day.

Epic of Eden 

Wednesdays, Jan. 24-April 17
(No class April 3) 

Does your knowledge of the Old Testament feel like a grab bag of people, books, events, and ideas? How many times have you resolved to really understand the OT? To finally make sense of it? 

Christian author Sandra Richter’s book, “Epic of Eden,” puts all the people, dates and events into a usable order, so you can see the history of God’s redeeming grace. It’s a story that runs from the Garden of Eden to the garden of the New Jerusalem. This study will organize your understanding of the Old Testament and renew your enthusiasm for studying the Bible as a whole.  

We’re offering “Epic of Eden” at several times but highly encourage participation in the Wednesday evening class, which will begin in Vinebranch Chapel. Participants will watch a video together, then break into their assigned small groups for the rest of the class to delve further into the lesson. Study leaders, including our 3 pastors, will rotate to a different small group each week. 

3 Opportunities to Participate: 

  • Evenings at the church: 6:30-8 p.m. (In-person class with a rotation of leaders including our 3 pastors) 
  • Mornings (Hybrid: in-person and online): 9:30-11 a.m. (Facilitated by Rev. Terri Henkel) 
  • Mornings (In-person only): 9:30-11 a.m. (Facilitated by Rev. Brad Greene)

Young Moms’ Bible Study

Wednesdays, Feb. 7-March 20
9-10:30 a.m.

The Letters of 1, 2 and 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This 7-session study, based on “What Love Is,” by Kelly Minter, not only reveals the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus. Facilitated by Kristin Brening.
