Spring 2019


Children’s Ministry - JANUARY 13 - MAY 5
Length: 16 Weeks     Facilitator: Amy Sweeter
Sunday School is for children ages 3 through 5th Grade. Children learn to worship the Lord through the study of His Word, music, and fun activities related to the Bible lesson. Children’s Sunday school is from 9:30-10:45am each Sunday.

Confirmation - JANUARY 6 - MAY 5
Length: 17 Weeks     Facilitators: Betty Jones & Adam McCarlson
Through confirmation, your children will be given the opportunity to be instructed in the Christian faith, & publicly affirm a living and personal faith in Jesus Christ. Confirmation is not a sacrament, nor is it commanded in the Bible. It’s a privilege, not a right, and consists of a three year pastoral and educational ministry of our church that is designed to assist our children in identifying with the life & mission of adulthood in the Christian church.

Foundations of the Faith - JANUARY 13 - MAY 5
Length: 16 Weeks     Facilitator: Pastor David Olson
What is Christianity all about? What do Christians believe? This class will examine the core beliefs of the Christian faith, including: Who is God? Where did evil come from and how did it affect humanity? How did we get the Bible and what is it? How is one saved? What is the role of the Holy Spirit in my life? What is the Lord’s Supper and Baptism? Regardless of how long you have been a Christian, this class will challenge and encourage you. If you are interested in joining Abiding Savior, or reaffirming your commitment as a member, you are invited to join us for a time of teaching and discussion around God’s Word!

High School Class - JANUARY 13 - MAY 5
Length: 16 Weeks     Facilitator: Cory Hansen
We know full well the pressures and stress that high school students experience today. It’s not easy. Being a Christian might be tough, but it’s worth it. In this class we’ll have conversations surrounding the temptations and pressures High Schoolers face every day and seek to answer their most pressing concerns.

Overcomer - By David Jeremiah - JANUARY 13 - MARCH 31
Length: 12 Weeks     Facilitator: Bob Manke
God designed you for victory. In this video Bible study, author Dr. David Jeremiah uses Paul’s instructions in Ephesians 6:10–18–his command for us to overcome the forces of evil by putting on the armor of God–to lay out a pathway for spiritual victory. We all know it’s hard out there. Sometimes it feels like the world is ripping apart at the seams. Sometimes it feels like our hearts can’t take any more hurt. But no matter what the world throws at us each day–anxiety, fear, confusion, temptation–we must choose how to respond. We can concede defeat or live in the victory God has promised.

True Worshippers - JANUARY 13 - MARCH 3
Length: 8 Weeks     Facilitator: Dennis Kaufman
The question is not “Are you a worshiper?” but rather “What kind of a worshiper are you?” In True Worshipers, Bob Kauflin, a seasoned pastor and musician, opens our eyes to the massive significance of being the type of worshiper God is seeking. Rooted in the gospel of grace and filled with practical application, this study aims to connect Sunday morning to the rest of your life—helping you fulfill your calling to be a true worshiper each day.

Financial Peace University - FEBRUARY 3 - MARCH 24
Length: 8 Weeks     Facilitators: Leah Anderson & Timothy Goetsch     Time: 9:15-10:45am     Cost: $109/family
We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University presents practical steps to get from where you are, to a responsible and wise use of what God has given you. This class will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend, give, and save wisely, and much more. You will need to register for this class by joining our group on the FInancial Peace University site.

The Holiness of God - MARCH 10 - MAY 5
Length: 8 Weeks     Facilitator: Phil Jensen
Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.

It’s All Under Control - Women’s Study - MARCH 10 - APRIL 14
Length: 6 Weeks     Facilitator: Sue Davis
Embark on a six-week journey to letting go of the things you can’t control, finding the strength to hang on tighter to those you can and finally learning how to tell the difference. If you’re like most women, you have been trying to hang on tight, so you can get life right. Jennifer Dukes Lee has written this Bible study workbook especially for you. Over the course of this study, you’ll uncover surprising truths from the life of Jesus about busy-ness, obedience, and asking for help, discover five major reasons that keep us from trusting God and how to overcome them, make healthier, wiser decisions about how to spend your time and energy, and find practical exercises and Scriptural truths to guide you in living a life of surrender to God. This isn’t a journey to “doing less;” it’s about becoming more of who God has truly created you to be.

The Art of Parenting - MARCH 10 - MAY 5
Length: 8 Weeks
You want your children to be safe, happy, and successful but how do you achieve those goals? Focusing on four crucial elements in your children’s lives - relationships, character, identity, mission - Dennis and Barbara Rainey offer advice on how to help your kids discover who they are in Christ, live wisely and honorably, foster godly connections, and understand God’s purpose for their lives.
