I hope you'll join the action on Sunday nights. Here are some one-hour classes that you can join at 5:30 p.m. this Sunday:

Game Plan for Life with Coach Joe Gibbs.  As a Super Bowl winner and NASCAR champion, Joe Gibbs has experienced success in life, but he is quick to give the credit to God.  Gibbs identified the most important issues facing men today and assembled a team of experts to address them.  Hillcrester Marlon Bright is doing graduate studies in Aerospace Engineering at UT and was just last year a starter with the Florida International University Basketball Team.  Join Joe, Marlon, and Herb as they lead men to think about a Game Plan for Life!  (Cost: $9.00 per book.)

The Disciple's Cross.  One of the most comprehensive courses available dealing with the five disiplines of the Christian walk.  A required course for the Base Camp Diploma of the Hillcrest Institute of Lifelong Learning Diploma Plan.  Led by Lance Karm.  (Cost: $10.00 for materials.)

Pursuing More of Jesus.  If you want more than the bare minimum God has to offer you, if you want more than to be a nominal Christian....  Spend time in the upper room with the disciples, receiving the teaching that Jesus poured into them on the night before His crucifixion.  This study leads right up to Easter, and you will understand and celebrate it as never before.  Led by Jacque Ogilvie. (Cost: $12.)

The Questions Christians Hope No One will Ask.  "Why would God allow evil and suffering?...  Why trust the Bible when it's full of mistakes?...  How could God send people to hell?...  Why are Christians judgmental?"  Some questions can stop a conversation.  Based on a new Barna survey of 1,000 Christians, Mark Mittelberg presents compelling, easy-to-grasp answers to ten troubling questions facing Christians today.  The discussion will cover one question each week for ten weeks.  Led by Tom Goodman.  (Cost: $10.00 for materials.)

PraiseHill is a traditional Sunday night gathering.  This lay-led service includes traditional hymn singing, special music, guest musicians, and strong Bible teaching in a powerful Christian fellowship.  If you miss the feel of 'Sunday Night Church' you will be excited about being a part of PraiseHill!!  Everyone is invited.  Led by David Miller & Jim Sessions.  (Cost: None)

Children's activities and youth studies are happening at the same time as these classes.  Come join us!
