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

The Pentateuch Hector Cortez │ Room 217
How do you see the Old Testament Scriptures? How do you especially see the Scripture of Moses? Jesus said: For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?” 
The writings of Moses are precious to Christians because they deal with God’s work with Israel, in preparation for the Messiah that would come, not only to save Israel, but to save the world from the power and punishment of sin.
The Parables of Jesus Geoff Johnson │ Room 221
The parables Jesus taught present clear stories from everyday events that many in the crowd would recognize. Jesus did not code His teaching to prevent some people from understanding, since all equally would understand the imagery. All those gathered could comprehend the aspects of the stories related to their everyday lives. We today can learn from these same teachings. How do these parables fit into our everyday lives?


1 Corinthians Mark Newby & Will Cleveland │ Auditorium
First Corinthians contains a frank discussion of the church and the issues that impacted real people in the first century. The Corinthian church was deep in sin on a variety of fronts, so Paul provided an important model for how the church should handle the problem of sin in its midst. How do we, both individually and collectively, fit into this model.


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 │ Room 204 (Single Again Ladies)
This is a class for women who are single again through divorce or death. Walk with the Savior from Gethsemane to Golgotha and recognize anew the power that radiates from the shadow of the cross, as you focus on the foundation of our hope as Christians – the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.


Adult Wednesday Evening Classes

Spiritual Disciplines Holly Bearden & Kate West │ Room 221 (Ladies Class)
As we navigate through the quarter each teacher will be in charge of teaching on a specific spiritual discipline while also providing some take home material. The class will begin with Kate or Holly leading discussion based on the PREVIOUS weeks discipline. The second half of class will be where that week’s teacher will teach on a new discipline. This will give an opportunity at the beginning of class for discussion, sharing of struggles, as well as triumphs from implementing the previous week’s discipline. This will be a room full of experience and wisdom, so we want to create an opportunity for that to be shared.


Man of God Jeremy Weekley │ Room 217 (Men’s Class)
In 1 Corinthians 16:13 Paul reminded the men of Corinth to, “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.” This seems to be a classic depiction of what we would think of when we think of a godly man as a leader: someone strong, spiritually mature, etc., but is this the complete picture? Aren’t men human; not superhuman? Do we always have to be strong to lead as we should? Is Satan tricking us into thinking we have to have it all figured out all the time. A quick look at men in the Bible reveals that we don’t always get it right. This quarter will study what being a man of God really is and how it should define our lives by examining the good and the bad we find in men in the Bible.


Jeremiah Jerry Hogg & Bob Graham │ Auditorium
The Book of Jeremiah reflects the ever-worsening situation Jeremiah encountered. Jeremiah had the unenviable tasks of challenging the religious hypocrisy, economic dishonesty and oppressive practices of Judah’s leaders and those who followed them. Jeremiah was the voice of warning, the watchman who brings attention to hard truths that others would rather ignore. This class will explore the works of Jeremiah and the prophesies he gave to the nation of Israel.



West End Youth Group Classes

Expecting the Unexpected Billy Bearden Lighthouse   MS & HS  Boys
The gospels are full of stories about Jesus’ interactions with everyday people. He gave hope to the poor, the sick, and the disabled. Jesus also interacted with several women, giving them purpose, status, and validly that they had not seen up to that point. He paved the way for the loving, yet pure brother/sister relationships in the church today.
Boys 2 Men Michael White Lighthouse   HS & MS Girls
What does it look like to be a man of God? What are the steps one needs to take to become a man after God’s own hearts? What does God expect of me? Together we will look at attributes that men of God should obtain and always be striving to have!



The Challenge 4.0 Billy Bearden │ Lighthouse │ MS & HS
During the spring quarter we will be breaking down some “Hot Button Issues” in a hands on way. We will pick a number of topics that Christian teens face every day and we will explore every side of the question but ultimately come back to what the bible has to say about it. During this quarter we will break into groups, have some good discussion and most of all, dive deeper into scripture. Are you ready for the challenge?
