Online & In-Person Classes
Onsite and Online
Pastor Wheeler will teach a course entitled “The Parables of Jesus” based on Dr. Kenneth Bailey’s book Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes. This four-week course will explore select parables of Jesus. Drawing upon Dr. Kenneth Bailey’s Middle Eastern experience and expertise, our goal is to unlock the parables by hearing, understanding, and applying them in our day in light of their original historical and cultural settings.
Join us on Sunday mornings, January 22 through February 12, onsite in Rooms 209 – 211 as Pastor Steve Wheeler teaches this course. Questions? Contact Pastor Steve Wheeler (firstname.lastname@example.org). Click here to register.

Cross View is delighted to host a Tuesday afternoon Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) class for women and preschool children. This year, BSF will be studying “People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided."

The BSF Children’s Program for infants and preschoolers (newborns to kindergarten-age) lovingly teaches the truths of Matthew at their age-appropriate level.

Thursdays, 9:30–11:00 AM (with Chuck Daenzer)
Every day bombards people with so many desires, and we wish we could pursue them all. Ecclesiastes recounts the story of one person who decided to try. He denied himself nothing that he wanted: Money. Sex. Power. Prestige. Knowledge. Experiences. He pursued them all. But what happens when we reach the end of those things? If you feel like you’re racing the clock for all you desire, this strangely named book may feel surprisingly familiar. See where his desires led him and what he learned through it all. If you have questions or need information, email Chuck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
