How to Study the Bible – Dan Waterman
Do you struggle with studying the Bible? Are you discouraged with your personal Bible study? Do you feel as if parts of the Bible simply do not make any sense?

Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a woman? Many of us may remember a time when these roles were firmly and clearly defined. Our culture today is heavy with ongoing debates and confusion over the roles of men and women and the proper relationship between them in the home, church and society. In this class, we will go back to Scripture and define Biblical masculinity and femininity and the relationship between them in everyday life.

From God To Us – Dean Ressler
Is the Bible really God’s Word? If so, how did Scripture get from God to us? How do we know that the Bible is not just a human invention? Can we trust that what we read in Scripture is what God wants us to know? Why are there 66 books in the Bible? Is a 2000-year-old book still relevant today? These are questions you may ask or will be asked. This course is designed to equip you to answer these foundational questions.
The Book of Revelation – John Colabroy
Revelation is the most mysterious and intriguing book of the Bible. Come join with me in this study of relevancy, for the time is near. Who doesn’t want to know what the future holds? The book of Revelation is packed full of prophecy, allowing us to look further into the future then ever before, a future that Jesus Christ guarantees. The only date we will predict is April 2nd, 2017, that’s the start date for ALDI Spring Trimester.
