New Testament Survey
Jonathan Smith
207 C
This class focuses on the life and death of Jesus Christ and the hope and promise that He provides. We will also look at the formation of the church following Christ’s ascension and the role of the apostles during this time. Geography is an important part of the New Testament story so we will study Jerusalem at the time of Christ in addition to Palestine and the Mediterranean World during New Testament times. All are welcome to join us for this journey through the New Testament.

Interpreting the Bible
Lee McConnel
207 A
As we believe the Bible is the very Word of God, it is important to interpret it correctly. This class uses “A Basic Guide to Interpreting the Bible – Playing by the Rules,” by Dr. Robert Stein, Senior Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Southern Baptist Seminary, to teach proper methods of interpreting the literary genres of the Bible. This is a great class for serious Bible students and teachers.

Pastor’s Class
Pastor Monty Guice
Music Suite 
What We Believe: Essential Doctrines of the Faith. We will learn about the foundational truths of Christianity, such as what we believe about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, good and evil, creation, salvation, the afterlife and the end times. Come join us as we learn about the core doctrines of our faith…in a fun and exciting way.

Men’s Small Group
Jason Hill, Bryan Beach
Building J-2
This group is for men interested in deep discussion of biblical principles, how we can apply scripture in our lives, and encouraging one another in a small group setting. Groups will be kept small, and more can develop based on interest.

Women’s Bible Study #1
No Other Gods By Kelly Minter
September 12/13-November 7/8
This study will challenge women to evaluate the modern-day idols in our culture and learn to identify the functional gods they may be serving daily and the lies those gods tell. Only by dethroning modern-day idols can we pursue and embrace a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus.

Women’s Bible Study #2
God of Creation By: Jen Wilkin
September 12/13-November 28/29
Through this study, we will begin to cultivate a worshipful understanding of our holy, Creator-God, explore Genesis as the “seed plot of the Bible” where the redemption story begins, and trace themes of creation, fall, redemption and restoration through a line by line study of Genesis 1-11.  If you have read Women of the Word, this study is an opportunity to put the tools you have to practice.

Prayer Group
Frank & Arlene Nelson
Bldg I, 6:15-7:30pm.
God called His house a “House of Prayer” in both the Old and New Testaments. We pray for revival, our country, the persecuted church, our local church, as well as a variety of personal needs. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16

Friends
Dana Fisher and Tammy Gutleber
207 E-F-G-H
The FRIENDS Class ministers to special needs students from 7th grade through adult. Our goal is for every special needs student to know and experience the love of God. In so doing, our leaders nurture each student and ensure they are in a comfortable environment that is spiritually focused and physically secure. Our teaching material is presented in a way that is easily understood and applied.

Students
Mark Young
Refuge Student Building
Midweek Worship (Doors open 6pm, Worship 6:30-7:30pm, Open Refuge 7:30-8pm) At Swift Creek Students, we are serious about seeing students be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ through the power of the gospel. This transformation occurs as we behold Jesus in Christ-centered worship. Midweek Worship is our weekly time when we gather together to worship Christ through praising him in song and being challenged by His Word. It is an inviting atmosphere for students to be encouraged by building Christ-centered relationships and to know they belong in the family of God. Midweek Worship is open to 6-12th grade students.

Connecting with God, Connecting with Others, Connecting Others with God

At Swift Creek we are all about making connections. The most important connection is the one we can have with God through faith in Jesus Christ. Once that connection is established we want to make connections in our homes and with the rest of the church family. A strong church is built by people of strong faith and individual homes where God is worshiped and honored. Read More...
