Bible Classes


We offer Bible classes for all ages (infants to adults) on Sundays at 9 AM and Wednesdays at 7 PM.

Our classes are a great way to get involved with fellowship and Bible study. If you have children, we’ll help you find their class first – just ask any of our Greeters or Welcome Center workers and they will be happy to lead you to the right classes for you and your kids.

Current Bible Classes


Adult Sunday Morning Classes

Study of Elijah Geoff Johnson│ Room 217
His name means “The LORD is my God.” The message of his life matched his name. It still does today. Not only do we see evidence of this man threaded throughout portions of the Old Testament, but we also find mention of him sprinkled in the New Testament as well. His name? Elijah. So who was Elijah? What did he accomplish? As a person, what was he like? How did his faith intertwine with his everyday living? And how does he impact us? Let’s take a look at a few attributes of Elijah and see how this man of faith encourages us in our own faith today.
The I AM Statements Mark Burroughs │ Room 221
During Jesus’s ministry on earth, He said many things that challenged His listeners. In fact, He often spoke in parables, or, as we will see in this article, in metaphors. He used figurative language to relate common objects or concepts with Himself or His Kingdom so that people could better understand His character and purpose. In the book of John, there are seven times in which Jesus says “I am ____.” Each statement gives us a glimpse into God’s character and what He’s like. One important point: it’s imperative to read these “I am” statements in context so we form an accurate understanding of what Jesus was really saying.  
Colossians for Beginners Bob Graham │ Auditorium
The church at Colossae was under attack from false teachers who were denigrating the deity of Jesus; they were teaching that He was not actually God. Though Paul had never been to the church itself, he addressed these issues head-on. The nature of Jesus Christ as Creator and Redeemer was nonnegotiable, so Paul wrote to them that he might bring his wisdom to bear on this difficult and trying situation. It was critical to him that this church know God in His greatness and glory, rather than in the deficient view given them by the false teachers.  
New Christian Class Adam Wilson & Mark Sloan │ Room 240 (Hispanic Classroom)
So now that I am a Christian what’s next? What do I need to learn to truly become a disciple of Jesus Christ? What do I need to know about the unique nature of the Lord’s church? Why do we worship the way we do? These, and other questions, will be examined in this class which is designed for those who have recently been baptized or who have recently placed membership here at West End. The class will cover basics in the Bible that will help the student understand more about the Lord’s church and how to live the Christian life.  
The Shadow of the Cross (Ladies Class) Room 204
This is a class for women who are single again by divorce or death. The shadow of the cross tells a powerful story—a story of sacrifice, suffering, redemption, and grace. It is a story that reveals deep love, demands uncompromising surrender, and opens the door into heaven itself. It is the story of a garden, a cross, an empty tomb, and a Savior who gave His all in order to make you His own. The shadow of the cross has the power to rewrite your own story. His blood can erase the doubts, mend the broken places, cleanse the stains, and make you new. The death of Jesus is the key to walking in new life with God. His resurrection holds the power to transform you and fill today with abundance and blessing. Our study is based on the book by Casandra Martin with the same title.

Adult Wednesday Evening Classes

The Non-Writing Prophets │ Jeremy Weekley │ Room 221
The Bible reminds us that, long ago, God spoke to His people through the prophets (Heb 1:1). While many of us are very familiar with some of the prophets, there are several that we do not often discuss. This class will seek to learn about, understand, and come to appreciate the efforts of some of the lesser known prophets that fulfilled their mission from God to warn, teach, and guide His people.
 Creating Chain Bible Studies Billy Bearden│ Room 217
Bible study is one of those things that is often times, “easier said than done.” I say this only because, unfortunately, there is no set of, “How to Instructions,” for going about it. We do, however, have any number of resources today and plenty of places to start when it comes to examining God’s Word and studying it for ourselves or with another person. Even with numerous resources though it still proves to be difficult task for many to tackle. During this quarter we will be treating this class like a workshop. This workshop will consist of us as a class making 12 individual chain Bible studies to better equip ourselves in studying God’s Word as well as sharing it with others! Come ready to write, mark, underline and highlight as we grow in our study together
Study of 1 & 2 Peter Chuck McCallister, Matt McCallister & Boone Gray │ Auditorium
The Apostle Peter is one of the great stories of a changed life.  His letters of I and II Peter are letters of encouragement for the early Christians as they were being persecuted, or were about to be, persecuted in tremendous fashion. A study of these letters are sure to encourage you as well.



West End Youth Group Classes

Churches in the Shape of Scripture
Chris Miller │ Lighthouse   
Middle School
Why do we worship the way we do? Why do we believe the things we believe? Why does it even matter what church you worship at as long as you are going somewhere? These are the kind of questions we will be addressing this quarter as we dive into what the Bible says is the church Jesus Christ established.  
Understanding the Bible
Billy Bearden Lighthouse  
High School
The purpose of this class is to help provide a solid foundation of our faith. We will discus matters such as; how we got the Bible, how to study the Bible, understanding the Bible as God’s authoritative Word, God’s attributes, and enlarging our love for God. We will spend a lot of time discussing what it means to be a theologian and how that word relates to us.
The One Another Statements of Jesus
Various Teachers
Lighthouse Middle and High School
Throughout our New Testament we see several “One another” statements that call for our attention. During this study we will focus on just twelve of these popular “One another” statements and apply them to our relationships in the church and especially in the youth group.
