ABF meets from 9:00–10:10 a.m. on Sundays and precedes our 10:30 a.m. worship service. 

College/Career
(Chris Geisler & Chad Kositzky)
Café

This group of young adults seeks to study the Bible for the purpose of knowing Jesus and gaining wisdom in how to respond biblically in everyday life. Each Sunday morning we join the youth for a brief time of worship and then we step into the Café for our time of study, discussion and prayer.

The Launch Class
(Greg & Tracy Rader)
Room 415

We’re studying how to build a solid foundation for life based on the truth of God’s Word. Whether you are “launching” alone or as a nearly/newly married couple, join us as together we seek to strengthen our faith, our love, our hope and the spiritual disciplines that will be needed for a lifetime of walking with Christ.

Homebuilders
(Jim & Sherry Jackson)
Room 316

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain” Psalm 127:1. This class is for young marrieds beginning their family and with toddler and preschool children. Although God is Sovereign in every area of our lives, He has given us responsibilities to carry out according to His plans. HomeBuilders’ aim is to understand and work with God as He unfolds His plans, building our lives, marriages and families.

Journey
(Phil Bruce)
Room 420

This class is for adults (30s & 40s) with elementary aged children. We walk through the Bible together and challenge one another to be intentional in reaching out. We teach on a variety of topics from theology, expositional studies and church history to parenting and reaching the next generation. We do monthly fellowships—come join us! 

Next Steps
(Ike Burress, Jermal Bridges, Marty Brown)
Room 401

Primarily for 40-somethings with children in the Bridge (pre-teen). The Apostle Paul exhorted Christians that as they had been walking so as to please God, to “excel still more.” That thought will guide us as we search the Scriptures to continue the next steps in our walk with God personally, with our families, and in our work and church.

The Potter’s Clay
(Asir “Jeba” Jebaraj)
The House, Room 201

Adults of all seasons of life—couples and singles are welcome in this class. In 1 Samuel 13:14 God calls David “a man after his own heart.” Join us as we are doing a character study on the life of David. We will explore some of the main events and lessons in David’s life and how his decisions affected his relationships with his family, friends, those he was entrusted to serve, and most importantly with God—life lessons that are still applicable for us today. 

Abundant Family Living
(Jon Sikes)
Room 412

A group discussion of biblical truths covering books of the Bible or topics of interest. We are currently going verse-by-verse through the Book of Colossians.

Salt and Light
(Dennis McGee, Ed Bedrosian & Chip McWilliams)
Room 416

All adults are welcome; most are 40++ as Keith Wells leads our class on a deep dive into the wonders and mysteries of the Book of Revelation. Join us as the Father reveals His Son through this exciting study, and we grow to understand how and why Christ should be glorified in every area of our lives.

Hope from the Scriptures
(Rocky Hails & David Carrico)
Room 407

Adults of all seasons of life—couples and singles are welcome to join us for this study, Ephesians: The Why and How of Church. We will explore the wonderful doctrines of Christ and His church and the practices for the church ordained by God. Get connected with folks that are “well-pleased to impart to you not only the Gospel of God, but their very lives also.”

H.I.S. Women
(Kim Rothaus)
Room 103

At some point in life, every one of us will face the dark pain of heartache and despair, a hurt that pierces so deep we’re left gasping with questions. As a class we are discovering that our pain does have a purpose, that difficult times can make us more like Jesus, and that there is always hope for the future. We invite you to visit and experience our heart for the Lord and His Word, our belief in prayer, and our love for one another.

Women of The Word
(Rike Carleton, Carol Cutler, & Peggy Wynn)
Room 107

Renewal—we are doing a study of the letters Paul wrote to the Corinthian church almost 2000 years ago. Like us our brothers and sisters in Corinth struggled with division, immorality, questions concerning worship, relational issues, and many more challenges. Paul lovingly reminds them of the grace and peace they received from Jesus and encourages them to live holy lives for Him as they wait for His return. In light of these challenges Paul’s words in
2 Corinthians 4:16, is our theme verse for this study, “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.”  We hope you join us for this very relevant and encouraging study.

Bob Peck’s Difference Makers
(Tom Treat & Clyde Ross)
Room 104

Acts ~ From tiny beginnings among Jesus’ disciples, the church exploded into a worldwide force in just a few years. How? Jesus left His followers with a mission, and the Spirit of God moved mightily through them to fulfill it. Luke’s account of how the gospel was carried from Jerusalem to Rome―despite every conceivable obstacle―assures us that God will also help us discover and live out our mission in the world.

Glory Bound Senior Adult Class
(Don Duncan)
Room 106

We are studying Ephesians verse by verse to understand the discipling of the church. Paul was training the new Christians on the teaching of Jesus in order to overcome the false teaching of the Roman gods. The church had some struggles as we discovered in the book of Revelation when Jesus corrected the church for leaving their first love.

.

The Global Class
(Mike & Leann McGee and Sam Kirui)
Room 410

A unique class for those seeking the truth of God’s Word and those who are believers in Jesus Christ desiring to dig deeper into the Bible. The class is made up of people from around the world, including some from other religions and Americans who enjoy bringing their international friends. This is a safe and friendly environment for all ages.


Wednesday Groups meet at 6:30 pm.

Women’s Bible Study
Jonah by Priscilla Shirer
(Karen Cowan & Lisa McGee)
Room 416

Interruptions. They’re aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves. What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! Priscilla redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God’s invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city. 

Share & Prayer
(Marty Brown)
Room 415

The church at Corinth assembled together in smaller informal groups (normally in someone’s house) for the purpose of mutual edification. A small group of adults experience this “house church” model as they open the Word of God to share what He is saying. Those who attend have found it a rich source of encouragement from the Scriptures spoken through one another and the blessing of praying for (and being prayed for by) one another.

Women Thursday 6:30pm
Finding God Faithful by Kelly Minter
Darise Hails’ House
September 12-November 7

In the midst of hardship, tragedy, and unanswered questions, it’s difficult to glimpse God at work. How do we hold onto our faith during these times? How do we trust God is working all things for our good and His glory? Over 8 sessions, trace the path of Joseph’s life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God’s sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable. Contact Darise with questions dariseh58@gmail.com.

Home Groups meet on various days.

Jesus’ mission is to make disciples; His method of making disciples was spending time with a few to build a lasting relationship with them. They came to know Him as their Lord and learned to follow Him in every area of their lives. The early church patterned themselves after Jesus’ method and met in their homes for the very same reason. At Heritage, this is our aim at what a Home Group is to become—to implement Jesus’ method of building relationships so others can come to know Jesus as their Lord and then grow together in following Him in His mission to make disciples of all nations.
