The Book of Daniel, with Steve Overholt
The Book of Daniel is an amazing account of the life of the Prophet Daniel and how he lived his life through three kingdoms and under multiple rulers. His life is an example for each and every person on how to live life as a believer in the God of the Bible. This study will point us to faithful living and to the hope that we have through the truth of biblical prophecy, given to us from our God. Join us for 14 Sunday evenings of study that can transform your life. Class notes will be handed out, no text is required. (14 weeks)
 
The Walk, with Rob Blair
Scripture employs many metaphors to describe the Christian life, and yet the one used most often is that of the “walk”. Whether a baby believer or a seasoned saint, this course is specifically designed to help every follower of Jesus “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him; bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10). That sounds wonderful, even amazing! In fact, almost too good to be true. If we were brutally honest with ourselves, most of us would just settle for not stumbling, tripping or falling into temptation and sin, which can lead to periods of feeling like we're on spiritual crutches or even spiritually paralyzed. So what’s the secret? Is it possible to exercise our Christian faith where walking is not only less of a burden but actually fruitful, even exhilarating in this phase of salvation which the Bible refers to as sanctification? That is precisely what Paul prayed for the Colossian Christians and what we will study in “The Walk”. (14 weeks)
 
Praying God's Promises, with Joe & Ruth Futrell and Rick & Dianne Ellsworth
Calling God's People to Prayer! This class will be an opportunity to spend time in focused prayer. Join us as we learn to pray according to God's word and God's promises. It will be a great joy and blessing to see God answer the prayers of His people! We will pray for Christ to be exalted, for many to come to know Him, for God's people to be strengthened, and for God's word and wisdom to spread locally, nationally, and globally! You are invited to join us as we grow in the privilege of lifting up prayer concerns that are close to the Lord's heart. "May Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!" (14 weeks)
 
Science and Faith, with Don Pagdin
Are Science and Faith opposed to each other? In our culture, which one is winning? This Science & Faith Class will explore the discipline of true science and the exercise of Biblical faith. We will look objectively at the suppositions of “modern” science; testing both valid and spurious claims. Wouldn’t you like to have reasons from God’s general revelation (nature) to strengthen your faith and confidence in God’s special revelation (scripture)? (14 weeks)

Fritz Good will be leading a study through the book Counsel from the Cross: Connecting Broken People to the Love of Christ by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dennis Johnson. You can purchase the book on Amazon for about $12. If you would like be a part of this study or if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Fritz Good at thegoodsinberlin@gmail.com(14 weeks)
 
English as a Second Language, with Tom Greenslade
Join us in helping our Spanish speaking friends learn English! You do not need to know Spanish in order to help with this ministry; you just need to love people and have an open, servant’s heart. (14 weeks)
 
Men's Discipleship - Special Forces BETA, with Chris Fritz
The Bible often uses the phrase “man of God” throughout the Old Testament for specific men who were fully devoted to God and recognized as such. Yet in the New Testament, the phrase is used only 3 times and for just one specific man. Why is that? And more importantly, what is a true “man of God”, and would any man qualify today? At a time when the idea of manhood is "up for grabs" and attacked by many, we need a clear, biblical understanding of what it means to be a real man of God. Special Forces is designed to train, equip, and motivate men for spiritual warfare. It is designed to equip men to apply truth to the specific front lines God places them: in their field (work/career), in their family (including their local church family), and in their flock (relationships including friends/neighbors). Special Forces is divided into 4 quadrants. This quad being offered is BETA Force which outlines the biblical characteristics of a real man and is open to any man who has yet to complete the BETA challenge. (8 weeks)
