Adult Classes

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)

Despite the record-breaking sales of Last Days books and merchandise, many Christians find the subject off-putting, confusing, or offensive. Eschatology — the study of the “Last Things” and the belief in God’s final victory over evil, futility, and death — is at the heart of traditional Christian proclamation.  Join Pastor Jeff in a discussion of “last things” in this 10-week video-based study.
