Kids  |  Students  |  Women  |  Men  |  Adults
We are moving forward as a church! Our methods are changing but the mission of evangelism and discipleship remains the same.

There is no better time for members or guests to be immersed in God’s Word.  All mid-week discipleship offerings are online only.

We will continue to offer a mid-week zoom Bible Study through the first of the year. Our Bible study is on Thursday nights at 7pm.  We spend some time worshipping through song, studying the Bible and finish each night in small groups discussing and applying the Biblical text we studied that night.  We are very mindful of school nights so we promise to be done by 8pm so students can finish homework and get the rest they need. This is another great opportunity to keep your student connected, please help us by supporting this opportunity with your students!

Women

Trustworthy | Via Zoom

Tues. August 18-September 22 | 9am-10:00am
Led by Faith McDonald

Wed. August 19-September 23 | 7:00pm-8:15pm
Led by Trisha Hamilton

When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan, we assume our life should follow and we’re much more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It is then we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. In this study of 1 & 2 Kings, explore Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.

Precept Upon Precept Inductive Study-Esther and Ruth | Via Zoom

Tues. Mornings August 18-December 1 | 9am-11am
Led by Caroline Trammel and Lisa Bower

Tues. Evenings August 18-December 1 | 7pm-9pm
Led by Caroline Trammel and Lisa Bower

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”?

If you were a slave, who would buy your freedom? If you had an enemy, who would come to your defense? In the Old Testament, this buyer-defender known as a “kinsman – redeemer” was usually a close relative. If you’re a believer, you already have one – Jesus Christ! This rich study of Ruth shows how Jesus both bought us and advocates for us, offering us an opportunity to rebuild our broken lives.

Books will cost $18.25 and will available for pick up at Lenexa Baptist during business hours starting August 16th.

The Gospel of Mark | Via Zoom

Mon. September 14-December 14 | 7:00 – 8:00pm
Led by Jeff McCracken and Curt Boswell

The Gospel of Mark has a feel of heightened intensity as events rapidly hurdle toward the final week of Jesus’ earthly life. Mark’s Gospel is concerned with presenting Jesus as the Messiah, the king, the Son of David, who is rejected by the religious authorities and calls his followers to radical discipleship in the kingdom of God.

Colossians and Philemon: Completion and Reconciliation in Christ | Via Zoom

Mon. September 14-December 14 | 7:00 – 8:00pm
Led by Dwight Ferguson and Tom Erdman

 “Jesus is the only way” can be an unpopular stand for Christians to take in our contemporary culture. But dangerous false teachings against Jesus Christ are not new. The Colossian church dealt with these same threats. When Paul learned about this danger, he wrote the church a message of warning. Colossians is full of dramatic and powerful passages coupled with rich instructions that defend Christ’s deity and His sufficiency to reconcile men to God. Paul’s message is a reminder that believers—then and now—are complete in Christ.
