33: The Series . . . A Man and His Traps

This study introduces a framework and a process that will help men understand what lies behind the manhood traps and beneath the heart idols that can distract them from the truth and the power of the Gospel. Then it unfolds a biblical battle plan that helps men replace specific temptations and struggles with God’s better promises. Join Craig Ilshner in W105. Training book is $15.

efbcWOMEN

This is EFBC’s ongoing women’s Wednesday TOPICS class. Every Wednesday there will be a class just for you as a woman. It will be a time for you to grow in your faith as you study God’s Word and serve.  Meet in the Children's Wing, first floor, Room C108.

  • Current Study
    The “Best Yes” led by Debbie Frank. In this video-based Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst shares how to make better use of the two most powerful words, yes and no. Using Biblical teaching and practical insights, this study will help you be more equipped to discern the best yes answers for your life.
  • Beginning July 15
    Called to be a Keeper Bible Study led by Jennifer Fett. Am I fulfilling God’s purpose for me in my life? What should my priorities be? Lori Merrill will help you answer these questions and more as you learn from her in this study.

Explore the Bible: 1, 2, 3 John and Revelation

This study is for anyone who wants to get a head start on the lesson for the upcoming Sunday morning Bible study or if you will be out and don’t want to miss a lesson.  Join Jerry Miller in Room A201.

Life on Mission

A weak gospel foundation leads to fragile missions practices. Understanding both the biblical foundations and biblical missionary practices is essential to joining the everyday mission of God.

This study, Life on Mission is a rich but simple guide that will help everyday missionaries (electricians, lawyers, church planters, students, etc.) in the areas of gospel and mission, which will lead to an effective ministry within one's own community. Life on Mission not only delivers a robust gospel base with daily mission practices, but is threaded with engaging stories and powerful questions that help individuals to take their next steps to living life on mission.  Join Billy Fuller in W106. Book cost $9 (optional).

What Do I Say?

This summer study will teach us how to engage different world views in meaningful discussions that can challenge their false assumptions and dispel Bible misconceptions. Join Clint Roberts in W103.

We live in a pluralistic world where a lot of people have worldviews other than ours. Some of these are more pervasive than others. There's a good chance, for example, that among those around you at work or school, there are Mormons or Muslims. You may also find yourself talking to someone with non-specific spiritual views they got from self-help books or other cultural fads. It's even possible that you know someone who is completely secular in his or her outlook, or who sees all religion as evil and is hostile to any sort of belief in God. How do we talk to them? What questions will they ask us and what questions should we ask them? We will explore these dominant ways of thinking in our culture and consider how we can engage people with these worldviews in meaningful discussions that can challenge their false assumptions and dispel misconceptions they have about the Bible and the Christian life.

Clint Roberts has taught courses in religion, worldviews and philosophy for over a decade for colleges and universities, and has a doctorate in the subject too. He also has a seminary degree and an ordained minister [SBC] and formerly appointed North American missionary.
