1. Some Things Are Too Good Not to Be True

(Tuesdays, 4 p.m., begins Sept. 7, at Crossroads, led by Brenda Wildermuth & Shelly Ruffner)

James W. Moore says that God wants good things for his children, but that, tragically, our society has become strangely suspicious of the “good.” We are quick to say, “It’s too good to be true.” Moore reminds us that some things are too good not to be true! These things are the most authentic qualities of life, qualities exemplified in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus—and we can make these qualities our own.

2. Small Group led by Hoby Griset

(Tuesdays or Wednesdays, 7 p.m., at Griset’s or on Zoom, led by Hoby Griset)

Contact Hoby (740-681-1708 or hgriset@columbus.rr.com) for more details yet to be decided.
3. Transformed
Begins Sept. 17 (Fridays, 10 a.m., at Shelly Ruffner’s house in Pleasantville, led by Shelly Ruffner)
The world is shouting for our attention with answers to our relationship struggles, solutions to our financial trouble, and explanations to our search for meaning. But the world’s promises leave us empty and searching for more. God’s will is the only answer that promises to TRANSFORM our lives from the inside out by looking at every major part of your life: Spiritual, Physical, Mental, Emotional, Relational, Financial and Vocational.

4. Disciple 4, Under the Tree of Life

(Wednesdays, 7 p.m., begins Oct. 6, Crossroads 4-Square Rm., led by Pastor Brian)

This is the final study in the four-phase DISCIPLE program, and it focuses on Old Testament Writings, the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John, James, Jude, and finally, Revelation.

5. Crossroads Community

(Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m., Crossroads 4-Square Rm., led by Pastor Alice)

REAL people looking for a way to have REAL conversations and live a REAL faith in Jesus Christ in the REAL world. This interactive, worshipful Bible study experience includes small group discussions that correspond with the day’s topic and scripture. Children welcome to stay with their parents or play in the nursery.

6. Sunday School (See the adult Sunday school classes for additional options.)

  1. The Daniel Plan (Possibly in-person or Zoom, led by Lori Peden)
 The Daniel Plan teaches simple ways to incorporate healthy choices into a one’s current lifestyle and helps them understand the kind of foods God created to keep them fit and strong. The book is categorized around five key concepts for optimal health that promote success: faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends. Those who recently finished the study are meeting monthly. If anyone wishes to join them or possibly complete The Daniel Study, please contact Lori at pedenlori@gmail.com.
