Develop Night!

We’re doing something new this summer in light of Covid-19. We’re offering several discussion-oriented classes designed to help you grow as a Jesus-follower into a difference-maker for a world of people far from God. Each class will meet for close to an hour one night each week throughout most of the summer. Unless otherwise indicated, each class will meet from June 3 through July 29 and will take a break the week of June 29.

Our choir and orchestra will not resume leading in worship for some time. The current proposed date to resume is September 13.

 

Glimpses of Glory: Heaven and Angels with Larry Merideth

Sundays from 7:00 to 8:00 pm / Meets over Zoom

Who goes to heaven? Where is it? What will we do when we get there? Are angels for real today? What do they look like? Do we have a guardian angel? Using Scripture as our supreme guide, and with the help of pastors, theologians, and writers such as Randy Alcorn, Billy Graham, Warren Hultgren, W. A. Criswell and David Jeremiah, we will explore the reality of angels and the hope of heaven for the believer.  Join us with Bible in hand for this thrilling and informative journey. 

Ephesians with Dave McPherson

Tuesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 pm / Meets over Zoom and at https://www.tulsafbc.org/watch-live

In his book entitled “Ephesians: NT Wright for Everyone Bible Study Guides,” pastor and author NT Wright compares Paul’s letter to Ephesus to the London Eye. Much like the London Eye, Ephesians provides a wonderful overview of Paul’s theology and understanding of the heart of the gospel. Ephesians offers a great window with which to explore how the gospel undergirds every aspect of life. Join Dave McPherson on an eight-week journey with NT Wright through Paul’s prison letter to the Ephesian community. 

Women's Book Study: Living Your Life as a Beautiful Offering by Angela Thomas with Jill Wiley

Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:30 am / July 8 to August 12 / Meets in person

How can an imperfect life with blemishes and scars reflect back to God a true gratefulness for His love? Jesus knows you are not perfect, but He also knows that you are made perfect in Him, if only you will come and surrender to Him daily. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gives us His compassionate instruction for everyday living and then wraps His teaching with the promise of His blessing. "Jesus wants us to learn to live in a way that reflects the kingdom of God to the world, to live as a woman with a kingdom heart," writes author Angela Thomas. "I truly want to be that woman. And Jesus says that when you are, it's beautiful and blessed." Join Jill as we walk through this six-week series on campus.

Pilgrim's Progress with Deron Spoo

In-Person Study: Wednesdays from 12:00 to 1:00 pm / July 8 to 29 / Meets in the café 

Online Study: Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 pm / July 8 July 29 / meets at online 

Online Pre-Class Session for All Participants: Wednesday from 7:00 to 8:00 pm / July 1 / meets at online 

Originally published in 1678, The Pilgrim’s Progress is a devotional classic for followers of Jesus. The allegorical story describes the pilgrimage of one Christian from his first awakening, to his need for Christ, to reaching the heavenly city. Bunyan's imaginative metaphors and analogies make your spiritual journey come alive. Join Pastor Deron for a four-week study and discussion of this great book.

Women's Study:  Collide: When Who I am Meets Who He Is with Ginger McPherson

Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 pm / Meets over Zoom

Collide. It’s such a strong word. Yet when we bring it into a spiritual context, when we let who Jesus is collide with who we are, that strength can give us hope—hope of change, hope that our lives do matter, hope that meaning, purpose and possibility exist even in the midst of the mundane. This eight-week study will explore Jesus’ collisions with ten real women. We will investigate the way Jesus meets these women right where they are and responds to them with dignity, compassion, and respect. By studying their encounters, we can also learn how Jesus meets us and who we are in His eyes—loved, accepted, significant, resilient, gutsy, brave. Join us for this great time of going deeper into God’s Word.

Effective Parenting in a Defective World with Mike Hart

Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 pm / Meets over Zoom

The greatest desire of every parent is to raise a child who can face anything with wisdom and confidence. But in a world of over-extended schedules, amoral messages, and incessant peer-pressure, how can you raise a confident child that follows God's will, not the world's? Chip Ingram's practical tips for modeling right living, building strong bonds, and disciplining effectively will help parents bringing up Christ-centered kids who feel secure and significant no matter what comes their way. Join Mike Hart for this 8-week study that will explore practical, age-appropriate parenting tips, charts/diagrams, and action steps.

Knowing God with Chris Matthews

Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 pm / Meets over Zoom

Outside the Bible, there are few books that I would say every Christian should read and Knowing God by J.I. Packer is definitely on that list. The book is devoted to God Himself as the subject. Packer expresses his motive for writing in this way: “The conviction behind the book is that ignorance of God—ignorance both of his ways and of the practice of communion with him—lies at the root of much of the church’s weakness today.” A shallow understanding of God creates shallow Christians and a shallow church. In this 8-week study, we will be reading and discussing this Christian classic together. Please join us!
