BIBLE STUDIES & CLASSES

At Church of the Servant, we believe that becoming a fully-committed follower of Christ involves more than simply coming to worship each week. It is a three-fold process that involves worship, service, and small group experiences. One way of becoming involved in a small group is by joining in one of the several Bible and book studies that are being offered each fall and spring. Consider becoming a part of one of these classes and you will enjoy great teaching, discussion, and prayer while building friendships that enrich your life. For more information, email Susie Cobden.

Living Your Strengths

CLASS POSTPONED UNTIL FALL OF 2019


This journey is based upon 30 years of research by the Gallup organization whose findings show that you will be most successful in whatever you do by building your life around your greatest natural abilities. Most of us have been conditioned at home, in church, at work, and in school to correct our weaknesses. Contrary to this, the Gallup organization highlights that our talents should be our primary focus, not our deficiencies. This program will put you in touch with the unique combination of strengths that you have been given which places you with a calling—a calling to serve others and to advance the cause of Christ and the Church, a calling to ministry. When you discover your talents, you begin to discover your calling. Class will meet seven weeks. Cost of Material: $45


Further information will be available in August.

Further information will be available in August.

“Irresistible: Reclaiming the New That Jesus Unleashed for the World” by Andy Stanley

Tuesdays, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. | April 9 through May 14

North Adult Center Room 12 | All

Led by John Farr


Once upon a time there was a version of our faith that was practically...irresistible.


But that was then. Today we preach, teach, write, and communicate as if nothing has changed. As if “The Bible says it” still settles it.


In this six-session video study, Andy Stanley will invite you to embrace the version of faith that, against all odds, initiated a chain of events resulting in the most significant and extensive cultural transformation the world has ever seen. A version we must embrace if we are to be salt and light in an increasingly savorless and dark world.

There are as many viewpoints, styles, and preferences about worship as there are people who worship.  And the Bible says worship is something everyone does.  So how do you know which approach is best? And how do you make sure the goal of your worship is appropriate?  This helpful study examines what the Bible says about true worship.  You'll discover that we are created for the purpose of worship.  And you'll explore solid, biblical principles for making worship a lifestyle of grateful response to your Creator and Redeemer.  DEADLINE for Registration:  April 17, 2019.  Register today by emailing Nancy Harris or by phoning or texting Nancy at 405-420-5463.

Companions in Christ

Wednesday Afternoons, 12:00 noon - 2:00 p.m.

Beginning September 19, 2018 (ongoing for 28 sessions)

North Adult Center, Room 1 | All

Led by Sherri Price


Beginning Tuesday, September 19, men and women are invited into a 28-week Spiritual Formation experience that will change the way you relate to God, to others, and to yourselves, opening the door to a lasting impact on your heart and God’s Kingdom. In a spiritual formation experience, our goal is spiritual growth. It is more about transformation than information. Together we will explore different types of prayer; looking at ways to connect our spiritual life to our everyday routine, allowing a deeper awareness of God in our daily being and doings. We will look at scripture and how it connects and illuminates our lives and our experiences. The spiritual disciplines of prayer, scripture, study, worship, ministry, and conversation are explored as ways to meet Christ, renew our faith, and deepen our love of God. Perhaps we will even begin to see ourselves and others differently in God’s light. 

"Steadfast Love" by Lauren Chandler

Wednesday Evenings, 6:30-8:00 p.m. | March 27 - May 15

Does God feel far away right now, and you have nothing left to offer him? In Steadfast Love, Lauren Chandler shares with her readers a difficult time in her own life. When her husband Matt was diagnosed with Stage 3 brain cancer, she leaned on the Scripture passage Psalm 107 to help her along her journey. She shares her discovery of God's steadfast love during this storm of life when she called out to Him for help. He answered with an all-embracing love that is yours as well. Let the storms in your life cause you to call out to him as well. His love is all-embracing!
