Current Discipleship Classes
Discipleship Classes on Wednesday, at 6:30 PM
Ephesus provides a number of opportunities for adults to grow spiritually on Wednesday evenings. We encourage you to commit to one of the group studies listed below. Some only last a few weeks, and are a great way to get a feel for what happens at Ephesus on Wednesdays beginning in April.
Thriving in Babylon beginning Wednesday, May 1st
These are confusing times for many Christians, Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they're attacked on every front. It's all happened at warp speed, leaving many of us spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment? And is there any hope for the next generation? This series, we will look at Daniel who was forced to live in a fast-changing and godless society. He faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of the world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. We will see that Daniel with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, not only survived but thrived. You can live that way too

Overcoming A Wounded Heart beginning Wednesday, April 24th
Overcoming a wounded heart has transformed the lives of many wounded hearts through its in-depth Biblical approach to facing and overcoming the pain of unforgiveness, shame, guilt and condemnation. Through the nine-week study, wounded hearts are shown the power and authority they have in and through Christ to forgive those who have left them with wounded hearts and enables them to arise from the pain of their wounded heart into their true identity as overcomers in Christ.

Verse By Verse beginning Wednesday, April 3rd
in the book of Ephesians, we see how the gospel story affects believer' everyday lives. God the Father planned throughout history for Jesus to create a multi-ethnic community of followers. Comprised of Jews and non-Jews, these followers form the covenant family God promised to Abraham. Come discover the practical benefits of living in the family of God.

Part II or a continuation of the current study of the classic, Pilgrim’s Progress. This study is for men only. Men are encouraged to join Pastor Billy on Wednesday evenings for this study. John Bunyan wrote Pilgrim’s Progress when he was imprisoned for his faith in the 1600s, but it still stands as one of the greatest Christian books ever written. It is a moving allegory that illuminates the Biblical teaching of the Christian life as a journey.
Billy Godwin, teacher / modular unit #3
Exodus: Part with Jen Wilkin (for women only) beginning April 17th
