DeeperLife classes are in-depth discipleship opportunities that are offered at other times beyond Sunday AM Groups. These courses are designed to challenge you toward maturity in your faith and to a greater knowledge of God's Word as you seek to be a follower of Christ (a disciple).
We seek to carry out our vision of disciples making disciples through helping people establish four points of connection in their lives.
- Connect persons to Christ through faith and repentance.
- Establish persons in a mature faith and in authentic community.
- Equip and mentor persons toward sharing faith and serving others.
- Multiply opportunities to engage believers in making disciples.

Fall 2019 Deeper Life Classes
Trinity - Essence of the Gospel
Scholar Tom Torrance provocatively declared, “...the very essence of the Gospel and the whole of the Christian Faith depend on the centrality and primacy of the [Trinity].” If Christ and the Spirit aren’t God along with the Father, “then all that Christ…did on our behalf was finally empty of saving content.”
In this class we will unpack why Torrance was right. To do this we will engage with Scripture, church history (particularly the 4th century), and theology. We will even attempt to understand how one God can be three persons. Our ultimate goal will be to gain a newfound appreciation for the Trinity and discover why it should inform our every prayer, act of worship, and engagement with the Bible.
Teachers: Corby Amos & Dr. Thurman Hayes, Jr.
- Location: Goodwin Bldg. G115 - Adult 7
- Time: Wednesday, 6:30 PM - Begins Sept. 11, 2019

James - A Faith That’s Real
What is true faith? How should you live the Christian life? Each verse of this practical study is alive with instructions, admonition, and encouragement. Learn God's principles for dealing with trials, temptations, the tongue, and the pull of the world.
James is a short book tucked away near the back of the New Testament. Once you have skimmed its surface even slightly, you will wonder why James has not become the primary reader for every child of God who longs to know how true faith behaves. As the weeks go by, you will understand faith’s works.
Teachers: Lisa Amos & Beth Blanchard
- Location: Traylor Bldg. 2nd Floor (T212)
- Time : Wednesday, 6:30 PM-Begins Sept. 11, 2019
- Cost: $25.00
Gospel Conversations - Joining God’s Work
God created you for his glory to advance His gospel with the gifts, talents, and opportunities he gave you. You live at this time in history for a purpose bigger than yourself. In this study you will discover how to connect the gospel story with your story, and how to talk about that story in normal conversations with people you know.
The single greatest obstacle for many believers when sharing the gospel is their ability to transition a conversation to spiritual matters. We are around people each day as we travel, go to ball games, and stand in line at the store. This class will teach you how to transition conversations by starting with the brokenness that’s all around us.
This class will give you a simple strategy to join God in his reconciliation work.
