Epic of Eden: Ruth  – led by Pastor David and Pastor John
This class is for anyone that struggles to see the Old Testament’s relevance to the big story of Scripture. We will be deeply engaging in a biblical survey of the book of Ruth. This class is for people looking to be challenged to understand the story of Ruth in ways they haven’t before. Our hope is that during this class you will feel you were able to discover how the story of Ruth is still speaking to us today. We will have brilliant teaching once again from Dr. Sandra Richter and marginally adequate teaching from your pastoral staff. Please join us! Book cost is $20.
 
Financial Peace – led by Asher & Michaela Braneck
No more money fights! With Financial Peace University, you and your spouse will learn how to create (and stick to) a budget, save for emergencies, and make a plan for the future. Doesn’t that sound peaceful? We are offering Financial Peace University at First United Methodist Church of Ardmore just for you starting Wednesday, January 15, 2020. Please visit fpu.com/1108261 to sign up!
 
Heavenly Minded for Earthly Good – led by Karen Chaffin
ALL OF SCRIPTURE POINTS to one grand promise: Heaven. So glorious are its rewards, all the treasure of this world pales in comparison. Yet most of our lives are driven by what our eyes can see and our hands can hold. We need Heaven in our sights.
This Bible study is for the one looking for answers to specific questions about Heaven. Perhaps a loved one has died and you need to know what he or she is experiencing in Heaven. Maybe life has been difficult lately and you need a reason to hope there is something more, something beyond this life. Maybe you don’t even know if you believe there is a life after this one. You may simply wish it were so. This study will guide you to God’s answers as recorded in the Bible.
For those of you who have taken the study in the past, this is an updated version. The original material has been streamlined and insights have been added that have come from years of teaching, participant testimonies, and simply growing in the knowledge and experience of an open Heaven. In our 12 weeks together, we will tour the Father’s House; peek in on Heaven’s occupants; try on a heavenly wardrobe; step up to the bema seat; attend a royal wedding; load up on hope, joy, and purposeful living; and discover what really matters on earth. God has a timely and life-altering word for each of us! Book cost is $15.
 
Your Best Us: Marriage Is Easier Than You Think – led by Clayton & Bebe Lodes

How’s your US? You and your spouse are unique. There has never been another US just like the two of you. You may be thinking … ahh we are like a marital snowflake, how romantic. Or maybe you’re thinking … thank God there is not another couple like US because we are a hot mess!
No matter where you currently find your US, you can experience more moments of awesome and less moments of awful. And it’s easier than you think. Your US can become more. Not some cookie cutter, clone version of someone else’s marriage, but the best version of your US.
Through humor, transparency, biblical wisdom, research, and a massive amount of practicality, Ted Lowe guides you through four, doable, easy to understand habits that will help you become your best us.
Your Best Us, written by Ted Lowe, is for anyone who wants a better marriage—even a great one—but feels overwhelmed by too many marriage books, blogs, and experts that make marriage harder than it has to be. Book cost is $20.

7:00pm Classes are dismissed (all children must be picked up by a parent).
