Strength for the Journey: A Study of Hebrews
Have you ever struggled in life? Have you ever experienced persecution? Have you ever felt like you are at the end of your rope and you barely have enough energy to hold on? Many centuries ago, some of the earliest Christians would answer “yes” to all of these questions. Many had left their families, their culture, and their friends to follow Jesus. Years into their new commitment, however, they were beginning to wonder if it was all worth it. Perhaps they should just go back to what was comfortable! In the midst of their struggle, they received a letter of encouragement, reminding them why Jesus mattered. We are privileged to have a copy of that ancient letter today, and it continues to provide us strength for our own journey. Join us for our Sunday morning adult classes this year as we study the letter to the Hebrews. In studying this book together, we believe we will find encouragement and strength to survive and thrive in our walk with Christ.

Seven Questions that Rattle in the Minds of Most Men
January 3–February 14
Someone once said, “Being a male is easy, but being a man is daunting.” The pressure on manhood can be enormous, and it is only intensified by the mixed messages you receive from culture. Sometimes it seems like everyone wants something from you. Does being a real man mean having a perfect family, a corner office, a luxury car, and a massive home? Or, is there more to life? The Bible has some surprising and counterintuitive things to say about being a man. Men, we invite you to join us for a seven-week series that centers on seven questions that rattle in the minds of most men. The class will meet each Wednesday from January 3 through February 14 at 6:30 p.m. Plan to join us, and bring someone with you who might enjoy the conversation.
Wednesday Evening Women's Class
January 3–February 14
On January 3, our Wednesday evening women’s class will begin, hopefully equipping women for service to their families, friends and neighbors. Some of the topics of these classes may be ones to take to heart in your own life, and others may prepare you to be of service to grandchildren, neighbors or friends. Whatever the case, we hope you’ll join us! Kicking off this series, Judy Siburt, from Abilene, will speak to us as she shares, “Becoming the Gospel: Practice Makes Perfect.” View the schedule here. We look forward to seeing you there!
Depression: Breaking the Silence
Dr. Seth Cowan
January 17–February 21
Followers of Jesus are supposed to be happy, right? Then why do so many of us who love God have such a difficult time finding joy? Depression is a reality in our world. Many of us suffer from depression, and many others have been touched by depression’s effects through a spouse, a child, or a close friend. Instead of keeping depression hidden, we need to be open about its impact on our lives. We need to find help. During this six-week Wednesday night class, Dr. Seth Cowan will present information about depression from his own life experiences as well as from his vast research on the subject. Guest speakers from our area will also offer their expertise to the conversation. If you or someone you love suffers from depression, we invite you to join us each Wednesday from January 17 through February 21. Space is limited to 12 individuals.
