Women's Study:  Hebrews by Lisa Harper

Sept 4 to Oct 9 / 9:30am / Detroit Tower room 111 / led by Jill Willey

Join Lisa as she journeys through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps women make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but He is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end. Lisa Harper makes digging into Hebrews fun and doable, as only she can, without losing an ounce of depth.

Spiritual Development Guide

Sept 4 to Nov 20 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / room C404 / led by Deron Spoo

One of the most essential questions a Christ-follower should ask themselves is this:  What is the next step in my relationship with God? Utilizing the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5, we will explore the character traits and spiritual disciplines necessary for developing as a Jesus-follower. This study is best done with a friend or a family member.

The Gospel of Luke

Sept 4 to Dec 11 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / room C405 / led by Chris Matthews

Luke was a physician and travelling companion of Paul on his missionary journeys. We know very little more about this man who wrote almost one third of the New Testament. This is because Luke’s aim was never to bring attention to himself, but to display the glory of Jesus Christ and his church. The Gospel of Luke is the longest of the four Gospels and is masterfully compiled by Luke from eye-witnesses to provide any person with a firm foundation for faith in Jesus Christ. Join this 13-week study as we delve into the unique picture of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke.

Leadership Training

Sept 4 to Dec 11 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / C334 / led by Dave McPherson

In Matthew 28, Mark 16 and Acts 1:8, Jesus challenged his followers to make disciples, but what does that practically look like? How can we lead those around us to know and grow in a relationship with Jesus? Are there any clues in scripture for how to measure what discipleship might look like? This discussion-oriented class is designed to equip you with tools to grow as a leader and learn how to multiply yourself as you lead or learn to lead community groups.

Global Difference Makers

Sept 4 to Oct 30 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / c408 / led by Mike Hart & Josh Bartels

This eight-week course explores the meaning of the great commission and its significance for followers of Jesus who desire to make a difference for a world of people far from God. Together we will explore the history of the missions movement, cultural barriers to the spread of the Gospel, how we can be involved in missions both near and far, and finishing the task. We will also hear from some of First Baptist Tulsa mission partnership leaders from around the world.

Women's Study:  Afraid of All the Things by Scarlet Hiltibidal

Sept 4 to Oct 30 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / Detroit Tower room 110 / led by Debra Hassell

What does the gospel say about your fears? What does it say about the irrational ones, like sinkholes in the Target parking lot? How does it speak to the rational ones, like pet scan predictions? And does the gospel have a word for the fears you feel you'll have for life, like the possibility of losing the one you love most? Join us for this eight-week class that follows the book by Scarlet Hiltibidal. We will explore how seeing life in the light of the cross can help us avoid fear, overcome fear when we can’t avoid it and live beyond fear when we don’t overcome it.

Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby

Sept 4 to Dec 11 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / c403 / led by Larry Merideth

A modern classic that has sold millions of copies worldwide, Experiencing God is based on seven biblical realities that teach us how to develop a true relationship with the Creator. By understanding how God is working through us even as we try to fathom His ways, we can begin to clearly know and discern God's will for our daily lives. Cost is $15.

Financial Peace by Dave Ramsey

Sept 4 to Nov 6 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / c424 / led by John Hassell

This is an initiative to completely revolutionize the way we handle God’s money. It’s about creating a church filled with intense, passionate, sold out, cheerful givers. In this nine-week course, you will learn to truly be doers of the Word in the area of financial responsibility. Cost is $100.

Healthy Living Workout

Sept 4 to Dec 11 / 6:15 to 7:15 pm / Detroit Tower room 111 / led by Julie Donelson

This fourteen-week course examines the Bible as it describes your body as a temple in which the Holy Spirt makes His dwelling. It is hard to worship and serve at your best when you don’t feel your best. Having a restored temple is a doorway to joy. In this course, we will work on moving from good intentions and resolutions to developing a lifestyle of physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Please come in your active gear ready for exercise.
