Sign up for one or all studies here

January 16- February 13th:
Precept Upon Precept: Nehemiah - Rebuilding, Revival and Restoration of the People of God

How do you respond when the enemy tries to interfere with God's clear direction? The enemies of God sought to frighten Nehemiah as he proceeded to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah shows us leadership and obedience in the face of opposition, as well as God's miraculous blessing and provision

February 20th- March 6th:
Precept Upon Precept: Malachi - Revering the Lord, Standing in Awe of His Name

God tells us that He is keeping a book of remembrance for those who fear Him and esteem His name. Malachi will prepare you for the day when the Lord opens the windows of heaven and pours out His blessing.

Precept Upon Precept: Esther - A Man and a Woman for Such a Time As This

What is your purpose? God is always working in the affairs of His creation, even when we are unaware. This study shows us how Esther attained royalty to fulfill God's purpose in her life and the lives of His people. Can God use you "for such a time as this"?

Leader: Kim DeMooy

fan: an enthusiastic admirer.
In the Gospels, Jesus never seemed too interested in fans.
Is that how you define your relationship with Him? An "enthusiastic admirer"? Close enough to Jesus to get the benefits but not so close to require sacrifice?
He was looking for followers. Not just any follower though, but a...

How would things change if you lived as Jesus lived, and loved the way He loved?
Maybe you’re ready to join the hundreds of people who have stepped across a line and said:
I am not a fan.

For this study, you will need to purchase both the book Not a Fan Updated and Expanded and the Not a Fan: Follower’s Journal, both available in the Timberline Café

No Other Gods by Kelly Minter

March 21st - May 16th
Wednesday Mornings, 9:00am-11:00am in room 201/202
Leader: Kim DeMooy
Sign Up Here!

Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of loved ones, Instagrammable interiors, and busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, you're missing the unrivaled joy and adventure of Jesus being your heart's ultimate treasure.

In this 8-session, revised and expanded study, learn to identify the functional gods you may be unknowingly serving and the lies they tell. As you dethrone your modern-day idols, you'll be set free for the deeper, more abundant life Jesus came to give you—discovering that Jesus can do what no other god can. This study's new content reflects how God has continued to grow, teach, and encourage Kelly Minter in her unrivaled pursuit of Him.

Homework:2-5 hours/week

The Quest by Beth Moore

Starting January 17th
Wednesdays 9:30am-11:30am in room 213
Leader: Myrilla
Sign Up Here!

The Quest is a cross between a curriculum and a journal, between a classroom and a prayer closet, with three primary objectives:

  • To promote deeper intimacy with God.
  • To help foster a sojourner mentality to aid as comfort that we are only passing through this world on our way somewhere else. This is not our home.
  • To foster an adventurer-mentality as royal subjects of royal blood unrecognized by the world but headed to an unshakable kingdom worth the arduous trip (Acts 14:22).

This study will explore questions that God/Christ ask man in Scripture as well as questions that man asks of God/Christ. The Quest is based on the concept that we mortals are "question-marked." Providing support in Scripture for the consideration that being question-marked is not accidental or, in and of itself, sinful. We are hard wired in our humanity with inquiry for the purpose of engagement and engagement for the purpose of intimacy. God who desires to be found created humankind with an innate desire to seek. He who desires to be known by us created us with a yearning to know what (and who) we don't know. Questions are inherent in us as God's image bearers. And questions are utterly essential to the Quest.

Precept Upon Precept: James

Starting January 17th
Wednesday, 9:00am-11:30am, Room 210
Leader: Gayle Morgan

Thursday Evening Bible Studies

Walking by Faith by Jennifer Rothschild

January 18th-March 1st
Thursday Evenings, 6:30pm-8:30pm in room 214
Leader: Becca Black
Sign Up Here!

Jennifer Rothschild knows not everyone sees 20/20. Although Jennifer is physically blind, God has taught her to see that living a life based on faith rather than sight requires us to look at our situations through a lens that filters out what is seen and, instead, focuses on what is unseen — those things that are eternal.

Walking by Faith: Lessons Learned in the Dark contrasts the evidences of walking by faith and walking by sight and encourages participants to take risks, give God control, persevere through hardship, receive God’s gifts, be guided by the Truth rather than feelings, and seek God.

Homework: 2-5 hours/week

Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg

March 22nd-May 3rd
Thursdays 6:30-8:30pm in Room 214
Leader: Becca Black
Sign Up Here!

Let's be honest: it's far too easy to go through day-to-day life without a sense of the mystery, the marvel, or the awe of God's presence. Have you ever felt your relationship with God isn't as vibrant as you want it to be? Have you ever felt like God seemed far away—even in the midst of devotions, prayer, and church?
You're not alone.
We Were Created for Wonder You were created and designed to experience wonder. Woven into the fabric of our humanity is an innate ability and desire for the wonder of God. It's felt in the moments when you watch the sun melt behind the horizon, when you reach out to cradle a baby and smell the sweet scent of new life, when you can't help but smile as you witness two wrinkled souls renew their vows to each other. Such moments remind us we were made for something more than deadlines and debt, carpools and coffee breaks.


Whisper by Mark Batterson

Please note: This study meets at Everyday Joe's Coffee House, NOT Timberline Church
Wednesday Evenings, 6:15pm-8:00pm
Leader: Debs DiGiorgio
Sign Up Here!!
January 17th - April 4th

Many people have a tough time believing God still speaks. Sure, in ancient times and in mysterious ways, God spoke to His people, but is He still speaking now? Mark Batterson certainly believes so. And he wants to introduce you to the seven love languages of God; each of them unique and entirely divine. Some of them you might suspect but others will surprise you. By learning to tune in to and decipher each language, you’ll be able to hear His guidance in simple as well as life-altering choices. God is actively speaking through: Scripture, Desires, Doors, Dreams, People, Promptings, and Pain. Batterson gives you the tools you need to unlock each of these languages. God’s whisper can answer your most burning questions, calm your deepest fears, and fulfill your loftiest dreams.

Discover how simple it is to hear God’s voice in every aspect of your life!

He’s speaking, make sure you know how to listen!
