Vision of Hope for God’s Persecuted People
Teachers: Nathaniel Cooley, Steve Schmidt and Richard Heintzelman
Location: Room 115
Length: January-April 2019
Time: 9:15-10:10 a.m.

Without a doubt, the apocalyptic visions such as those found in Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation confuse believers. The visions describe strange things that are difficult to picture despite the detail given by the seer. These graphic visions have become the topic of many books, movies, and sermons – most of which deal with the unknown future. These visions certainly apply to the future, but they also have application for all believers – past and present. They portray a vision of the victory of God and His people despite the evil which seems to be winning all the time. Join us as we think through a selection of passages from Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation and seek to apply these passages in prayer for a persecuted church.


Romans 9-11
Teachers: Matt Swecker, Robert Coats, Scott Long and Collis Jackson
Location: Room 11
Length: January-April 2019
Time: 9:15-10:10 a.m.


After having explained in Romans 8 that nothing can separate God from his people, the apostle Paul then deals with the natural questions that arise because Israel had largely rejected Christ: What about the Jews–were not they His people? Had God’s promises to Israel failed? How do we reconcile God’s glorious promises in Romans 1-8 with Israel’s tragic apostasy? In Romans 9-11, Paul gives a thorough answer to these questions

In dealing with this issue, Paul covers topics that remain relevant for us today: God’s sovereign choice in election, unbelief verses the true faith that leads to salvation, how God has always kept for himself a remnant people, and how both Gentiles and Jews fit into God’s plan.

Some of these are difficult passages. But we know God’s word has not failed. He is faithful to all his promises. Come and join us as we discuss these issues together.
