Tuesday Evening Bible Study


Hosea: Unfailing Love Changes Everything by Jennifer Rothschild

Tuesdays 6:30-8:30 in room 213
Class on October 24th will end at 7:15pm)
Leader: Becca Black*

Hosea is such a beautiful love story.
It’s the love story of Hosea and his wandering wife Gomer. It’s the story of God’s love for His wayward people Israel. Ultimately, though, it is the story of God’s unfailing love for you and me. Like Israel and Gomer, we are prone to wander from His love. God loves us too much to let us go though. He goes to extraordinary lengths to bring us back to Him. I can’t wait for you to experience that kind of love!

Homework: 20-30 minutes per night


The Quest by Beth Moore Tuesday Evening


Starting October 24th, no class November 21st
Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm in Room 213
October 24th only Class will start at 7:30pm
Leader: Becca Black
Sign Up Here!

The Quest is a cross between a curriculum and a journal, between a classroom and a prayer closet, with three primary objectives:

  • To promote deeper intimacy with God.
  • To help foster a sojourner mentality to aid as comfort that we are only passing through this world on our way somewhere else. This is not our home.
  • To foster an adventurer-mentality as royal subjects of royal blood unrecognized by the world but headed to an unshakable kingdom worth the arduous trip (Acts 14:22).

This study will explore questions that God/Christ ask man in Scripture as well as questions that man asks of God/Christ. The Quest is based on the concept that we mortals are "question-marked." Providing support in Scripture for the consideration that being question-marked is not accidental or, in and of itself, sinful. We are hard wired in our humanity with inquiry for the purpose of engagement and engagement for the purpose of intimacy. God who desires to be found created humankind with an innate desire to seek. He who desires to be known by us created us with a yearning to know what (and who) we don't know. Questions are inherent in us as God's image bearers. And questions are utterly essential to the Quest.

Leader: Kim DeMooy
Sign Up Here!

Believing God: Experiencing a Fresh Explosion of Faith
September 13th-December 6th (No meeting on November 22nd)

The bride of Jesus Christ in our generation is nearly paralyzed by unbelief. God is calling His bride to a fresh and lavish anointing of faith. This in-depth study examines the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others as examples of persons who believed God

A Note from Beth Moore:
"God confronted me with the truth that though I had believed in Him for many years, I had hardly begun to believe Him. He made something clear to me that He has sent me forth to say to you: God is so much more than we have yet acknowledged and experienced. He is capable of tremendously more than we have witnessed. I have become utterly convinced that we see so little primarily because we believe Him for so little. Here's the great news: God wants to change all that!"

Homework:2-5 hours/week


Revelation Unraveled: The Future Is Now by Les Brittingham


Wednesday Mornings, 9:00-11:00am in room 211
Leader: Les Brittingham
Revelation Unraveled by Les Brittingham
Sign Up Here!!
September 13th - November 15th

Revelation is the one book in the Bible promising a blessing for those who read its words (Rev. 1:3). The Problem is, many Bible students avoid Revelation and are intimidated at the thought of trying to understand it, because of the confusing schemes to which they have previously been exposed. In this practical and scholarly work, author Les Brittingham unravels the difficult and confusing knots of interpretation, which have come from some of the more popular approaches to Revelation. Instead of focusing on predictions and time-lines, he offers a simple, kingdom orientation that dispenses with the guesswork, while affirming Christ and His church's victory over Satan, as the preeminent theme of the book.
Les believes that Revelation is not just about the future, but teaches us; the future is now. You will enjoy the simple, yet detailed discussions on such popular subjects as: the mark of the beast (666), the tribulation, the Antichrist, the Battle of Armageddon, the identity of the 144,000 and the millennium question.

Homework: About 1hr per week

Wednesday Mornings, 9:30-11:30am in Room 214
Leader: Rala Moore
Sign Up Here!

Empowered and Enabled is a compilation of authors and pastors that will teach the “exchanged life” message or what it means to live as Christ/to be crucified with Christ.

Romans, Ephesians,and Colossians will be the main books of focus. This is not a typical Bible study with a workbook. You will be challenged to get out of your comfort zone, break old habits and thought patterns and surrender fully to God. It is only through surrender and the leading of the Holy Spirit that we can find true and lasting victory regardless of our circumstances.

This is a 10 week study. Homework is designed for those who may not have time or want to sit down and read a book. It is NOT, however, a study without homework. Your homework is watching or listening to a video or podcast, listening to a song while reading the lyrics, meditating on a passage of scripture, coloring pages, and brain exercises. Come join Empowered and Enabled and rest in who we are in Christ.

The word secrets might evoke feelings of shame, guilt, or even fear. But not all secrets are bad. Study the theology of secrets with Beth Moore in this 6-session study. Some secrets need forgiveness, and some should be kept between you and God. Sacred Secrets is for busy women who do not have time for an in-depth study; however it does not lack richness or quality. Discussion potential abounds without any expectation of revealing private information. Join Beth to find out what happens when we let God teach us "wisdom in the secret heart" (Psalm 51:6, ESV).

Hannah, a pastor on sabbatical, is trying to find her equilibrium with rest and a new relationship. But what does hope look like when old grief keeps resurfacing?

Mara, a wife and mother, longs for her difficult family life to improve. But what does hope look like when tension escalates and circumstances only get worse?

Sometimes life feels like two steps forward and one step back. Find your own spiritual journey reflected in the lives of these women and discover the way forward.

Timberline Old Town Study

The Sacrament of Happy


This study is held at Everyday Joe's Coffee House- 144 S. Mason St., Fort Collins

In her new book, The Sacrament of Happy: What a Smiling God Brings to a Wounded World, Lisa Harper unveils a similarly extravagant, unexpected surprise, declaring that happiness is a gift from God that we can unashamedly enjoy.

Wearing the twin hats of both seminarian and belly-laughing adoptive mom, Harper builds upon solid theological scaffolding for happiness in a warm, vignette style. She dismantles the old-school idea that joy, not happiness, is the truly spiritual emotion of the Christian family and asserts that Christ-followers are actually called to happiness . . . to such a deep conviction in the unmitigated goodness of our Creator-Redeemer that we are free to feel and express genuine joy, fulfillment and contentment, regardless of personal and global tumult.

Harper’s personal story includes such happiness killers as sexual abuse, the death of loved ones, and heartbreaking failed adoptions. Yet she writes on themes like:

  • "The lost sacrament of laughter"
  • "Happiness is not the absence of sadness"
  • "Tuning out the Pharisees who try to mute your happiness in the context of spiritual maturity"

Timberline Windsor Study

Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin


This study will be held at Timberline Windsor

Cost: $15, which includes your workbook and program costs.

Monday Nights:
September 11th - November 13th, meeting from 6:30-8:30pm at the church Childcare provided

Thursday Mornings
September 14th - November 16th, meeting from 9:00-11:00am at the church Childcare provided

Join us Monday nights or Thursday mornings as we learn, what does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? The Sermon on the Mount articulates what the life of a Christ follower should look like, asking us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? In this 9-session study, examine the words of Jesus in-depth as He challenges us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification.
