Electives are mid-size groups (10-20+) 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) and at various other times during the week.  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.

Spring Electives March 18 - May 20 (10 weeks):



Getting the Most Out of Romans with Jeff Shirkman

(College & Career Young Adults)

Sundays 9:00am - Conference Room

Romans may be the most important letter you will ever read. It is Paul's masterpiece, the clearest and fullest explanation of the gospel in the Bible. One theologian said that "if a man understands it, he has a sure road opened for him to the understanding of the whole scripture." William Tyndall, the father of English Bible translators, believed that every Christian should learn it by heart. Please join us at 9:00, as we walk through the book of Romans.


Anxious for Nothing - Finding Calm in a Chaotic World with Andre Clark

Sundays 10:45am - Conference Room

This class will examine Max Lucado’s master-piece, “Anxious For Nothing” where he invites readers to delve into Philippians 4:6 –7, the most highlighted passage of any book on the planet.  Some of the anxiety busting topics that we will review in this class are:  1) Less Fear, More Faith - anxiety and fear are cousins but not twins. Fears see a threat. Anxiety imagines one. Fear screams, get out! Anxiety  ponders, what if?  2) Rejoice in the Lord’s Sovereignty - You can’t run the world, but you can entrust it to God.  3) Let your request be made known to God. “Contagious calm” -  anxiety is needless because God is near.  4) Leave your concerns with Him with Thanksgiving. “Great gratitude” Christ–based contentment turns us into strong people.  These topics and many more will grab you and your anxieties and take you both to the throne of God.


ARMOR OF GOD (Ladies of any age)

Sundays 10:45am - Utility Room

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. 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. Class limited to 15 ladies.


Dave Ramsey's Finanical Peace University with Ray and Dawn Durkee

Sundays 6:00pm - Conference Room

Ray and Dawn Durkee will be facilitating this series on planning your financial future through the Dave Ramsey video series. They have many countless first-hand testimonials of how this program has changed lives, from an elderly widow who turned her monthly checkbook anxiety into an easily managed plan, a college bound participant who made changes that would minimize her college debt, and a couple that paid down debt that enabled them to be prepared for medical hardships they had no idea would be part of their future. No matter your current status in life, this class is for you.  This class will allow you to tell your money where to go, or you will always wonder where it went! Dave Ramsey Weekly assignments will be part of the curriculum.  While small children may not facilitate the best learning environment, please bring older teens who will soon be on their own and making financial choices of their own!

Registration will be handled by e-mail between the facilitators and class members.  The material fee (per family) is $99 and will be collected the first night of class.  In addition to the normal sign-up, a completed “Financial Peace University” registration form is required. Please use personal emails only when registering - no work emails.
