This class will be a deep dive through the Story of Jesus according to John. John’s gospel is artistic and cosmic - its pages are rich with meaning! His purpose in writing is so his readers will choose to believe Jesus is the Messiah, and so they can find life in Jesus’ name (John 20:31). We would love to have you as we explore how John so beautifully shares stories to reveal that Jesus is Lord!
Often, we don't realize God is all we need until He is all we have. Catch your breath by being confident in God's comfort and love. Join us as we dive deep into the teaching of Kyle Idleman and Max Lucado and find calm in a chaotic world.

Based upon Jemar Tisby's excellent book, The Color of Compromise, this class will access the video series of the same name from RightNow Media in which Jemar explores the historical reality of the American church's complicity in racism and how people of faith today can contribute to racial justice and equality and foster a more equitable and inclusive society—especially in our churches.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is an eight-week video discussion series. The author, Peter Scazzero, suggests that “it’s impossible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature.” This experience sheds light on emotional roadblocks that are simultaneously stalling our spiritual growth. If you’re needing a catalyst for spiritual growth, this class is for you! We’ll meet on Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00, June 2 - July 28 (except for June 30).
7:00pm - Room A4
Francis Chan will lead us on a “foundation of faith” journey to explore the simplicity, fullness, and beauty that church was intended to be. The first three weeks will look at our relationship to the Trinity: God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. The next four weeks will examine fellowship, teaching, prayer, and communion. The last two weeks will cover the implications of Good Friday and Easter. This video discussion class is open to all! We’ll meet Wednesdays, 7:00-8:00, June 2 - August 4 (except for June 30).

Designed for developmentally delayed adults, Zacchaeus’ Place is our Wednesday night gathering where each week we have a Bible lesson, we sing happy birthday to anyone celebrating, and we have a prayer time that is second to none at Southwest. These days, we’re meeting at Snack Pak to serve together in the fight against hunger. If you’d like to experience the joy found in this class along with making some new friends, we would love to have you join us!
