Core Classes

Understanding The Bible

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM

Taught by Creston Harris – No charge, Room H184

For many people the Bible is quite confusing. Some versions use outdated English. Many sections are boring, mysterious, or obscure. However, with a big picture explanation, the Bible is quite understandable. It is a single message that all ties together; even though it was written through dozens of authors over hundreds of years. Understanding the Bible is especially helpful to those who are new to the Bible and Christianity.

Regular Classes

Basic Evangelism Training:  Way Of The Master 

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM

Video Study facilitated by Bill Parlier – No charge, Room H187

Based on the award-winning TV series The Way of the Master, the Basic Training Course is specially formatted to train believers in a group setting to simply and confidently share the gospel with family, friends, and strangers.

These lessons will teach you to overcome your fears by using a proven, powerfully effective way to make the gospel make sense. You won’t be at a loss for words. You don’t need to be an expert in apologetics. Instead, you’ll learn the forgotten biblical principle of bypassing the intellect (the place of argument) and speaking directly to the conscience (the place of the knowledge of right and wrong) — the way Jesus did. 

Men’s Bible Study:  1 Peter

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM

Taught by Josh Martin – No charge, Room F202

This world looks nothing like the promised perfect kingdom of God. And yet we, as God’s people must live in it every day. The world is not as it should be. Until the day that God rights all wrongs, we have a job to do. Let’s be about the business of the kingdom.

Join us for this interactive study with engaging discussions as we walk through the short letter of 1 Peter and unpack the importance of our witness in this world.

Creeds

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM

Taught by Kent Commons – No charge, Room H185

How did orthodox Christianity develop?  It was through series of councils with the creeds being the historical signposts. Were they all in the time of Acts? Or were some more recent? The answer might surprise you! Join us at 6:30 PM starting October 6, and we will see if there is still a need for yet another creed.

Midweek Bible Study:  Sermon On The Mount (continued)

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM

Taught by Teaching Pastors and Leaders – No charge, Room H100

What does it mean to “seek first the kingdom of God” in our relationships, values, ambitions, finances, and commitments? Jesus’ answer to these questions amazed those who first heard the Sermon on the Mount. Join us as we dig deep into His startling and challenging message found in Matthew 5-7, the greatest sermon ever preached.

Training And Hope For Dementia Care-Partners (continued)

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM

Book study taught by Kim Mitchell – No charge, Room H183

If you’re helping care for a family member or friend who has a type of dementia such as Alzheimer’s, this class is for you.  Or, if you seek to be equipped to minister to those impacted by dementia in our church and community, this class is also for you.  The class will be structured as a book study using The Dementia Care-Partner’s Workbook, A Guide for Understanding, Education, and Hope, by Edward G. Shaw, M.D., M.A., and will be available for purchase in the classroom for $17.  Another suggested book, Second Forgetting:  Remembering the Power of the Gospel during Alzheimer’s Disease, will also be for sale in the classroom for $14.  Check payable to McGregor Baptist Church or cash (exact bills please) will be accepted.  No credit cards please.  The class will also be supplemented by special speakers and group discussion.  
 
All are welcome, but dementia, Alzheimer’s or other long-term caregivers may find it particularly beneficial.

Women’s Ministry: Book of Hebrews, Part 2 (Chapters 8-13)

Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM

Book study taught by the Women’s Ministry Teaching Team – No charge, Fellowship Hall

The book of Hebrews gives us a fresh perspective on Christ as our great high priest and it offers us encouragement and hope. If life has been tough for you, the Book of Hebrews can give you the elemental truth of God’s Word looking through the doctrine of Christ that will provide you with the spiritual refreshment you need.

The Book of Hebrews tells us that life is a difficult journey, a journey from weariness to rest.  Ultimately, we are all dreaming of home, and the only way we are going to get there is by fixing our eyes on Jesus.  Join us this fall to find that security in the Book of Hebrews.
