Jesus Can Relate – Rev. Kim Talley


Parlor (can also be streamed into any home group)


This is a six week study and discussion of the different relationships of Jesus and how we can apply those practices to our own relationships.

Jesus and His Close Friends 

Jesus and His Enemies 

Jesus and the Lost 

Jesus and Other Races 

Jesus and Women 

Interpreting and Applying the Parables of Jesus – Howard Griffin, Dan Carter & David Mullin


Room 304 (can also be streamed into any home)  


Jesus was once asked, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” Jesus replied, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.” Come join us as we seek to discover the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven as we learn what the parables of Jesus meant to the first century audience who heard them for the first time. Then we will discuss how we might apply these lessons about the Kingdom of Heaven to our own lives today. You can join us in person in 304 or on our FIRST PRES LIVE page.

Daniel – Shannon Cornell

Room 206


Written well over 500 years before the first advent of Christ, the book of Daniel foretells significant historical events in great detail.  Not only forecasting the rise and fall of Gentile kingdoms, Daniel also accurately predicts the granular details of specific events -- including the arrival, death, return, and reign of the Messiah.  In 2021, we stand at a unique moment in time, bridging the gap between fulfilled prophecies of history past and unfulfilled prophecies of the near future.  Please join us this spring as we continue to dive deep into Daniel, the Old Testament companion of the book of Revelation.


Whether children join their parents in Wednesday Night Neighborhood Home Groups all around the city or are at the church for dinner and study groups, they will be learning from hands-on activities led by trained volunteers and child care staff! There will be Intergenerational time as well as breakout time specifically for the kids!
