What went wrong? Why did God let this happen?

Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? Bible teacher Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands daily disappointments and life-altering loss. By walking through her own valley, she’s discovered that in God we can find unexpected strength as we wrestle well between our faith and feelings.

With solid truth, vulnerability and honest humor, Lysa will help you:
Find peace and hope for the future when you feel like your life is not what you expected. Stop being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations. Train yourself to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so you can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes. Discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give you more than you can handle. Shift your suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing you. Know how to encourage a friend and help them navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.

Leader: Becca Black
Sign Up Here

In these pages, you’re invited on a global culinary and spiritual adventure. You’ll cast nets in the Sea of Galilee, descend 410 feet into salt mine, bake fresh matzo at Yale University, harvest olives on the Croatian coast, spend time with the “Meat Apostle” in Texas, and taste succulent figs at premier farm.

“This journey changed my life, my faith, my future,” Margaret writes. “It moved me from fear and uncertainty to discover a renewed, vibrant faith again—and I believe it will do the same for you.”

With her delightful curiosity and whimsical humor, you’ll learn how to nurture deeper connections around any table and unlock the secrets to the satisfying and fruitful life you’ve been created for.

This is an invitation to taste and see God’s goodness—and there’s a place set just for you.

Leaders: Verdis Overshiner and Kay Nystrom
Sign up for Luke here
Starts January 15th

Precept Upon Precept: Luke: Part 2 - The Savior of Sinners

What happens when Jesus, knowing crucifixion awaits Him, prepares to enter Jerusalem? How does He spend those final days? Handle His adversaries? What does He teach in the temple? And just what happens when Jesus dies and rises from the dead? These are important facts we need to know for ourselves, precepts for life that will prepare us for what lies ahead, and equip us to fulfill His calling on our lives. These are truths, prophecies, that seem ready to rise on the horizon of history.

Wednesday Morning Bible Studies and Book Clubs


Living Free by Beth Moore


January 16th- March 13th
Wednesday Mornings, 9:30-11:30am in Room 214
Leader: Rala Moore, Nickie Stobbe, Carol Goff, Mindy Catlett
Sign Up Here!

Empowered and Free 2 taught by Rala Moore- Come join us as we embrace who we are in Christ and identify lies we have believed. His yoke is light! In Him we are free! In Christ we are loved, important, and there is no condemnation. Our position in Christ can not be altered but, as Bill Johnson says, “If we believe a lie, we empower the liar.”

We will be reading and discussing a Neil Anderson's Bondage Breaker that outlines practical steps on walking in the Spirit and the renewal of our mind and emotions, and spiritual warfare. Videos, worship songs, color sheets and activities are woven into the curriculum. Look forward to video teachings from Louie Giglio, Robert Morris, Jimmy Evans, Bill Johnson, and others. Video and song links are sent in the weekly email.

This is a 7 week class beginning Wednesday, January 16th - March 13th, from 9:30-11:30. Hope to see you there!!


God of Creation by Jen Wilkin


Starts January 16th
Wednesday Mornings 9:00-11:30am in Room 211
Leader: Barb Miller
Sign Up Here!

It all began with the Word.

The opening chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.

Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, dive into Genesis 1-11 by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.


Five Steps of Christian Growth


January 16th-February 20th
Wednesday Mornings, 9:30am-11:30am in room 203
Leader: Beth Wubbena
Sign Up Here!

This study will help you grow and mature in your faith in Christ. This 5-lesson topical Bible study helps new and growing believers discover five cornerstones of their faith: assurance of salvation, steps to growth, understanding God's love, experiencing God's forgiveness, and being filled with the Holy Spirit. Join us for a lively discussion while we learn how to live a life of faith! We will do the lessons together in class. Bring a Bible. Workbook required and will be available in the Timberline Cafe.

Homework: none


The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer


February 27th- April 17th (No Class March 20th)
Wednesdays, 9:30am-11:30am, Room 203
Leader: Beth Wubbena
Sign Up Here !

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.


The Quest by Beth Moore


Starting January 16th
Wednesdays 9:30am-11:30am in room 213
Leader: Shannon Webb
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.


Precept Upon Precept: Revelation 1 and 2


Part 1 Starts January 2nd
Part 2 Starts March 20th
Wednesday, 9:00am-11:30am, Room 210

Homework: 5-10 hours/week


Story Thru Bible


Wednesday Mornings, 9:0am-10:30am
Room 202
Leader: Tiffany Kinerson
January 16th-April 17th, no class March 20th
Sign Up Here!

The Bible is a book of stories. God gave us a book of stories because that's how we learn most naturally. This is one reason why Jesus told so many parables. God could have given us an instruction manual or a religious textbook, but instead He chose to give us a collection of real-life experiences of people who heard His voice, encountered His presence, or experienced His works.

Story Thru the Bible [Old Testament] makes the Old Testament come alive through 26 stories from Scripture. It is based on this concept that we learn best through stories. And it's designed for anyone to be able to learn a story, remember it, and pass it on to others. Storying through the Bible is a highly effective and natural way to communicate key truths, concepts, and values, as well as a biblical worldview.



Homework: About 1-4 Hours/week
