Warrior's Den (Men's Class)
Led by Men’s Ministry Leaders (Room 316 at 6:30 p.m.)
Men have a glorious and significant role in God's Larger Story. They also are the target of a special warfare aimed continually and ruthlessly at the center of their being... their masculine hearts. Naivety and ignorance keep many men running in circles while misinformation and poor training keep many more in bondage. Men are wounded, frustrated, angry and being crushed under the weight of criticism and expectations. The attempted solutions of recent years have been through mere education; tell men what they are doing wrong and give them a list to memorize. This strategy isn't working and it's time we fall back to an ancient one. What if we are setting men up for failure rather than helping them be free? This is a class about becoming a Beloved Son, "receiving love" from God and the effect that should have in settling a man's heart. Then, and only then is the foundation set for a man to enter the Battle.
Led by Bud Hedstrom (Room 317)
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Gideon (Women’s Class)
by Priscilla Shirer
Led by Monieca Hogg (Room 319 at 6:30 p.m.)
When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or the fleece he laid out under the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that—bigger than any one man and his mark on Israel’s history. Like everything else in the Bible, this is a story about God and His people. His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of their weakness—even through their weakness. And because God’s people includes you and me, Gideon’s story is also about us—our lives, our doubts, our struggles, and our possibilities as believers. From a state of fear, weakness, and insecurity, Gideon emerged as Israel's hero, filled with God's presence and His passion for deliverance. This study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. In what ways do you feel insufficient? Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience the sufficiency of God. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, see them as the gifts that they are, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.
by Bob Russel
Led by Steve Claiborne (Room 320 at 6:30 p.m.)

Genesis in ASL
Led by Emily Walker (Room 322 at 6:30 p.m.)
This study will be presented in ASL only. We will be studying Genesis, verse by verse. Life is hard today. We need to stay in God's word to be reminded of how He started our lives and what His plan is for our future.
Led by Raiuppius (Room 323 at 6:30 p.m.)
NAMI Basics is a free, 6-week education program for parents and family caregivers of children and teens who are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness or whom have already been diagnosed. NAMI Basics is offered in a group setting so you can connect with other people face-to-face. You'll learn the facts about mental health conditions and how best to support your child at home, at school and when they're getting medical care. Last year, 99% of participants told us they would recommend the program to other parents. The course is taught by a trained team with lived experience—they know what you're going through because they've been there. The 6-session program provides critical strategies for taking care of your child and learning the ropes of recovery.
Led by Joe Easley (Room 227-A at 6:30 p.m.)
