Women’s Study #1
Pat Coltrane
WC & 207 A-C
All Things New by Kelly Minter March 16 – May 11, 9:30am-12pm (8 Sessions) Through the letter of 2 Corinthians, we will explore the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

Women’s Study #2
Brenda Lindsay
WC & 207 B-D
Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin March 16 – May 18, 9:30am-12pm (9 Sessions) What does it means to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven according to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount? We will navigate these three chapters as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification.

Supporting One Another
Jean Connor
Building C-1
A Bereavement Program for those struggling with loss. April 27-June 1 (6 Sessions) If you have put your life on hold until more time has passed, waiting for things to get better or you become stronger, this class is for you. We will focus on God’s Word as we navigate together the losses experienced in life. Guilt, regret, resentment and loneliness that linger after the occurrence will be examined as well as appropriate expectations in coping with these emotions. Bridge-building techniques through identifying and maximizing strengths will be explored. Come and join us.

Women’s Study #3
Cynthia Hart
Building C-1
Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer March 22 – May 10 (7 Sessions) All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you—unseen, unheard, yet felt in 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. Cost for Book: $13

Women’s Study #4
Francine Haymes
Building C-2
Gospel of Mark by Lisa Harper March 22 – May 10 (7 Sessions) The gospel of Mark unveils a Jesus of unparalleled power and authority but also a Jesus of humility and love. And while this Jesus invites each of us into a greater story through His teachings, He demands we come as active participants as we acknowledge Him, seek salvation in Him, and follow Him wherever He leads. Come follow Jesus through His days of early ministry to the cross and discover what it means to be the recipients of His overflowing compassion and the very reason for His
all-consuming passion.

Men’s Class #1  
Dave Sanders, Mark Hauschild
Building I
Victory Through the Gospel by Matt Chandler (Come anytime during this ongoing study) As men, we all wrestle with something that keeps us from becoming everything we are called to be in Christ. However, when we begin to see our issues through the lens of the Gospel and start to live our lives in the power of the Gospel, we will experience the victorious Christian life. This video driven series with Matt Chandler, well known author, pastor and teacher at The Village Church, will help men see to the root of sin that plagues us all and embrace the redemption available to us all. The Lord has given us the victory through the Lord Jesus Christ. Come and join other men as we strive to live victoriously.

Men’s Class #2
Carl Turner
Building J
April 26-May 31 (6 weeks) What are the most important issues facing men today, and what does the “average Joe” really need to know to be victorious in the game of life? Take a tour of the Joe Gibbs Racing facility as you journey with Coach Gibbs through a six-week experience designed to help you win in the game of life. Three-time Super Bowl champion, NFL Hall of Fame inductee, and three-time NASCAR champion Joe Gibbs has assembled a team of experts to tackle the key areas of life a man needs to grasp in order to be victorious.

As God Sees The Cross
Jamie Rutherford
Music Suite
Starting March 8 (12 Weeks) This study is an introspective look at the intricacies between the Old Testament and the New Testament as it relates to the Messiah and His supreme sacrifice for humanity. The Bible tells the story of the cross. God filled His word with powerful details meant to be understood. Yet, many of them are overlooked. As we progress through this study, we will begin to see the cross – As God See’s The Cross.

Contend for the Faith
Sam Allen
207 C
April 26-May 31 (6 weeks) Welcome to the front lines. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations about these controversial issues continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How do we respond? This class will provide an opportunity for Christians to determine how to actively take a biblical stand on these topics. Know what the Bible says, establish what you believe and why you believe it, and accept the challenge to become a passionate, unwavering voice for Christ.

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

Students

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.

Children 
Children (2yrs-5th) are invited to participate in our AWANA program where they will hear Bible stories, memorize scripture, and play games. Younger children can be dropped off in the nursery.

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...
