Chapter summaries will be distributed in order to save on cost for this class. Please join Pastor Kerr in the FLC-Conference Room for this interactive discussion group.

    • room E106
    In this day when social issues are creating clear dividing lines in society, moral and political neutrality is not an option for those who believe the gospel. It's simply not enough to focus on only those issues that are most comfortable--and least costly--to us. Join us for this six week study as David Platt invites us to fix our gaze on the holiness, goodness, love, truth, justice, authority, and mercy of God revealed in the gospel and to live with conviction, courage, and compassion in the midst of a culture that is drifting further from the truth every day. 

  • What Love Is
    The Letters of 1,2,3 John

    • led by: Joy Traylor
    • focus: Women
    • cost: $10
    • room E100
    The letters of 1, 2, & 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 week study for women reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus.

    What should I do with my life? How can God use me? Many of us ask those questions, but none more than young adults. If you’re searching for God’s will and practical advice as you seek answers to important life decisions, Experiencing God: God’s Invitation to Young Adults is for you. This 7 week interactive study will focus on developing godly character, searching for a career, understanding Jesus’ standard for relationships, dealing with crises, and maintaining a focus on knowing and doing God’s will.
