UPCOMING STUDIES AND CLASSES
SCHOOL IS STARTING EVERYWHERE, EVEN WAYNE CHURCH!
Check out all of the studies that have begun or will be starting soon!
HISTORY OF THE BIBLE
When: Sundays @ 9:15am
Where: Counters room (#E101, Floor 1R)
Have you ever wondered how the Bible came to be? Join us as we study the story of the world's most influential book. The Bible is not a prescription to a complete, fixed religious system, but rather a product of a long and intriguing process, which has inspired Judaism and Christianity, but still does not describe the whole of either religion. This class will be led by Lowell Gustafson. Click below to learn more about this fantastic study!
THE MIRACLES OF JESUS
When: Sundays @ 9:15am
Where: The Upper Room (#A204, Floor 2)
The Miracles of Jesus, by Jennie Allen, is about a God who can accomplish anything. Do you ever feel like the situation you’re facing is too big even for God? Sometimes we face problems, people, or circumstances that seem impossible to overcome. Yet the Bible shows us time and again how Jesus performed miracles during his time on earth. We see that he is generous, compassionate, and honoring toward all of us—and nothing is too big or too small for us to bring to him.   Spend time exploring the four Gospels during this seven-session study, filmed on location in Israel. You’ll find yourself in awe of a God who relentlessly seeks, saves, and restores us. 
A STUDY OF THE APOCRYPHA
When: Wednesdays @ 9:15-11:15am
Where: Upper Room (#A204, Floor 2)
All are welcome to the Wednesday morning Bible Study as we tackle the Apocrypha. What's the Apocrypha? It's a series of 15 books written during the time between the Old and New Testaments. These books were originally included in the Septuagint, the version of the Hebrew Scriptures translated into Greek between the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC which was the early church's Bible. While the Catholic Church generally includes them in the Bible, the Protestant does not. Come and see what you think. This class is led by Katie McNabb.
LADIES EVENING BIBLE STUDY
When: Alternating Wednesdays, starting September 25 @ 7pm
Dates: 10/9, 10/23, 11/6, 11/20
Where: Kimm Ebersole’s (check directory or email Kimm for address)
Please plan to join us as we unpack this new 5 week Bible study, written by the creators of “The War Room”. This study guides readers through examining how we determine and find our true identity in Christ. We will then watch the movie together as a group .
Overcomer: Many people feel they are less than who God says they are. We get our identity from our careers, political positions, roles in the family, among other things.   However, what is true about us is that we are made by a God who loves us, and the Gospel can bring us into a relationship with Him. When we understand who God is, we understand who we are. Available on Amazon (use Amazon Smile in order for our church to get a percentage!) Cost per book is $8.99 Feel free to join us even if you do not purchase the book – it is not required!
LADIES TUESDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY
When: Starting Tuesday, October 1 @ 10:15 – 11:30am
Where: Conference Room
Ladies’ Morning Bible Study is continuing! We’ll start our studies off with the Book of Mathew. This is a nurturing group led by Nancy Brown, happy to have you regardless of your level of Bible knowledge. We move at a slow pace. Only requirement is a desire to connect and grow. We always open with a time of sharing and praying. Please consider giving our group a try!
PRAYER 101
When: Starts Wednesday, October 9th @ 7 - 8:30 pm
Where: Upper Room ( #A204, Floor 2)
After taking this 9 week class, expect to be a transformed person: comfortable, confident and bold in praying. Based on " Praying to Change Your Life" by Pastor Suzette Caldwell, this class will help you gain a greater understanding of why we pray and how to pray over any topic on earth and most importantly, to be effective in praying. This class will be led by Charles Caristan.
SIMON PETER: FLAWED BUT FAITHFUL DISCIPLE
When: Starting Thursday, October 10 @ 7pm
Where: Upper Room (#A204, Floor 2)
He left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. That’s one way to describe Peter. Here’s another: poor, uneducated, quick-tempered, and full of doubts and fears. Doesn’t even sound like the same man. And that’s the point of this 7 week Bible study by Adam Hamilton. Peter was just an ordinary guy who followed God’s extraordinary call. Discover how you, too, have special gifts, talents, and abilities that God can use to make a difference today. This class will be led by Galen Black.
MEN'S BREAKFAST
When: 1st & 3rd Thursdays at 6:15am
Date: October 3
Where: The Well
Join us while we continue the conversation about Generation Z and how to ensure the next generation understands and embraces a biblical worldview.
