Electives are mid-size groups (8-20+) that provide assimilation and the opportunity to explore meaningful and relevant Biblical topics.  Groups meet during both services on Sunday (9:00am and 10:45am). You'll not only grow as a follower of Christ, but you'll build a deeper understanding of relevant real world topics as they relate to the Bible.  Valuable friendships can be easily achieved.  To register contact the church office (330) 882-4416.

Fall Electives September 9 - November 11 (10 weeks):



Galatians with Jeff Shirkman

(College & Career Young Adults)

Sundays 9:00am - Conference Room

“Galatians has been called the Magna Carta of spiritual liberty, the battle cry of the Reformation, and the Christian’s Declaration of Independence. It is the Holy Spirit’s charter of spiritual freedom for those who believe in Jesus Christ. The letter is personal, doctrinal, and practical- understanding its message is key to spiritual life and victory”- John MacArthur
Please join us on Sunday mornings, as we study Paul’s epistle to the Galatians.


Armor of God with Julie Hoxworth (Ladies of any age)

Sundays 9:00am - Room 3

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, and your destiny. 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. Class limited to 15 ladies.


A Life Beyond Amazing: 9 Decisions That Will Transform Your Life

with Andre Clark

Sundays 10:45am - Conference Room

What does our world need? Our world needs solid-to-the-core people with unimpaired grit and unimpeded godliness. The church needs a rekindling of the nine traits that go to the core of character and are called the “fruit of the Spirit” in Galatians 5: 22–23. God wants us to be people of love and joy and peace. He wants to build endurance into our lives and instill in us compassion for those who need our help. He is ready to bestow the qualities of champions—generosity, integrity, humility, and self-discipline. People with those qualities are saints for all seasons. They are people like Jesus. This book, A Life Beyond Amazing: 9 Decisions That Will Transform Your Life by Dr. David Jeremiah, is a manual on how to develop these qualities. You alone can make the decision to pursue this life, and if you do, I promise you will not be alone. Each week we will examine one of these nine decisions. The ninefold fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5 is a gift of God, but don’t forget: it also represents nine decisions on your part. Those decisions will affect you every day; they will transform you into a person of character who fulfills your God-given potential and inspires others to do the same. It’s amazing to meet people like that. It’s beyond amazing to be one. Come join us!
