God Connects – Part One
Sundays, September 18 – October 23, 9:30 AM (Rooms 209 – 211)
As we seek to be equipped to go into the world as disciples of Jesus, a solid refresher on the basics of Christian faith is in order for two reasons. First, knowing the faith strengthens us personally in our walk with God and in our understanding of His love for us and for the world. Second, growing in our understanding of the faith equips us to have meaningful conversations and dialogues with others as we seek to share Christ. Join us on Sunday mornings for part one of “God Connects.” In this six-week series, we will tackle questions like: “Why Jesus?” “Why the Bible?” and “Who is the Holy Spirit?” The course will equip you to share your learnings as well as access and share free user-friendly resources with others. Questions? Contact Phil Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org). Click here to register for this class.

Tuesday Bible Study Fellowship (BSF)
Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) for Women & Preschool Children
Tuesdays, starting September 13, 12:30 - 2:00 PM
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." This study will unpack a fascinating period in Israel’s history across 15 books, from its split into two nations, through dozens of kings and prophets and ultimately to the heartbreaking exile into Babylon.
For more than 60 years, BSF has offered free, in-depth Bible study, now serving more than 400,000 class members on six continents in more than 120 nations. The BSF Children’s Program for infants and preschoolers (newborns to kindergarten-age) lovingly teaches the truths of Matthew at their age-appropriate level.
Want to learn more about BSF? Go to bsfinternational.org to see how BSF studies the Bible. To learn more about this year's study, visit www.bsfinternational.org/our-studies/kingdom-divided/. Want to hear more about the BSF Children’s Program? Go to bsfinternational.org/childrens-groups.

Tuesday Evening Age 18-28 Bible Study
Twelve21 is a bi-monthly meeting of college students and young adults on the first and third Tuesdays of every month. Participants have the opportunity to meet with others who are in a similar stage of life and to talk about how faith and life converge. The meetings, which include Bible study, discussion, and fellowship, typically take place at an area restaurant or brewery.
- On the first Tuesday of the month we have Bible study, usually meeting at Cross View, in the Senior High Room. We read some scripture, dig into what we saw and heard, and then answer “so what?” and discuss how it applies to us.
- On the third Tuesday of the month we meet somewhere, usually TBD for fellowship, typically at an area restaurant or brewery.
Contact Pastor Toby Schmidt (email@example.com) for more information about this group and this study.
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.
