We encourage you to visit several groups if you wish, so that you may find a comfortable place to engage in transformational Bible study on Sunday mornings.  Age ranges are given, but many groups feature adults of mixed ages. 

If you would like help getting connected with a group, contact Connie McNeill.

 

 

Study Groups

ONGOING BIBLE STUDY GROUPS: Sunday Morning

Young Adults Class
Leader: Ben Lassiter
Room: 415

This group study focuses on Biblical topics, themes, and specific scripture with an emphasis on personal life journey.


The Potter’s Wheel
Leaders: Amy Duncan & Carolyn Fulk
Room: 611

Our class name reflects our belief that we are all still in formation. We base our discussion and exploration on the texts appointed by the Christian Lectionary. The study is led by a monthly rotation of class members who facilitate learning through open participation. Our time together symbolizes the wheel, where God uses the study of his word to further shape and mold us. Once or twice each year we follow a special book or topical study. Most of our members are in their 30’s, 40’s or 50’s, but adults of any age are welcome. We are a warm and supportive group, and we also meet outside class a few times each year for social gatherings.


Foundational Doctrines
Leader: Roger Driskill
Room: Church Library

This group study focuses on Biblical topics, themes, and specific scripture with an emphasis on personal ministry and missions.


Winepress
Leader: Jeff Langford
Room: 117 (Social Room E)

The Winepress Class examines biblical texts, poses questions, and explores cultural and personal viewpoints as we seek to connect more deeply with Christ. Each week, we’ll try to apply what we’ve learned from the scriptures and each other. All are welcome, no matter your age, church background, or level of biblical knowledge.


The Lankford Class
Leader: Tom Lankford
Room: 411

A verse by verse study of the Bible books in the context of the book being studied and the whole of sacred scripture, with an emphasis on distinguishing ontological and transformational concepts hidden in the apparent literary devices employed by the author and inspired by the Spirit.


Koinonia Class
Leader: Greg Greason
Room: 414

The Koinonia Class is composed mostly of adults over 50. The class period begins with announcements, sharing concerns, and prayer. The Bible study, based on Smith and Helwys’ Formations curriculum, begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. This study includes active participation of the class in discussion with the goal of deeper spiritual understanding and service to others.


The Seekers Class
Leader: Neita Geilker
Room: 503

The Seekers Class seeks to grow in understanding and applying scripture, increasing our outreach to others, and building community. We use the Baptists Today Bible study material. Most of us are middle-aged couples and singles. We begin with the Bible study material, including plenty of—sometimes vigorous—discussion. At 10:30, we begin a time of sharing. The class enjoys several after church pot-luck events a year.


Milton Horne’s Class
Leader: Milton Horne
Room: 410

This group consists of persons interested in Christian faith as it encounters contemporary culture. We read books on topics ranging from theology to economics, from comparative religion to science, with a view to processing such ideas through the eyes of informed faith. The class is discussion based and encourages thoughtful participation.


Truth Seekers
Interim Leader: Francis Ginn
Room: 303

The Truth Seekers Class is made up of about a dozen senior ladies who are100 years old or less. We use the Smith and Helwys’ Formation curriculum. However, we are happy to have questions, new ideas, and information any member may contribute. Our chief concern is caring for each other, but our projects reach our whole church and beyond. We believe we are never too old to question, test, and analyze our faith.  


The Tanner Class
Leader: Blane Baker
Room: 304-305

The Tanner Class is an engaged group that enjoys discussion and dialogue. We use the Baptists Today material to provide background for each lesson. Conversations then emerge, and we generally explore how Bible study impacts our daily lives. The group is composed mostly of retired persons. We have 2-3 social gatherings each year.


Men’s Bible Study
Leader: Ray Kesner
Room: 308

The Men’s Bible Study uses the Smyth and Helwys’ Bible study material in a lecture style for men.


Life Together
Leader: Tana Clement
Room: 504

A Biblical study of classic & contemporary issues found in both the Old & New Testaments.
