Making Decisions Without Fear Or Guilt

Lynn Ruark | Room 303 | September 17 – November 12

Making life decisions can be challenging, especially for believers who naturally want to take into consideration obeying God and wanting to please Him. In this class we will look at the resources God has given us to make wise decisions, and how to use them to become the persons He intends us to be. A special emphasis will be given as an alternative to the “traditional view” of how we approach decisions, which should help take the fear and guilt out of making tough choices. This 9-week study emphasizes interaction with God’s Word as well as with other class members.

Series Descriptions

Discovery Series

The “Discover Laurelwood” class is a way to learn about the church and how you can be a member!  Discover Laurelwood is offered 3 times per year in September, January and April.


We also offer the following additional classes to unpack each area of discipleship in greater depth:

  • Bible Study
  • Prayer
  • Witness
  • Worship
  • SHAPE (Spiritual Gifts)
  • Stewardship
  • Personal Reflection
  • Seeking Wisdom
  • Fellowship

Each class is a chance to meet our pastors and leaders, learn about our church’s vision, and to discover practical steps for your spiritual growth. Each of these classes is offered approximately once per year.


While you may not take all the classes in order, we encourage you to plan on eventually attending them all as a way to get to know your church as well as a gain a clear vision for your own discipleship journey.


Deeper Life Series

God has a desire that you become stronger and spiritually more mature. The Deeper Life Series provides solid Bible exposition through various books of the Bible to move you deeper into the Lord and the LBC Discipleship Process. These Classes are designed to provide increasing spiritual stability and strength in your life as an adult at LBC. Special attention is given to the verse by verse explanation of what God is teaching within each paragraph of every section of the Bible Book. Then these truths are applied specifically and personally to your life situation. Subjects and topics are covered when they are raised by the order of the message found in the book being taught. 


Each class is designed to stand alone” so that an adult at Laurelwood can step in at any time to be fed from Gods Word. Sunday morning classes begin at 9 am, which corresponds to the same time as our Youth and Childrens Sunday School and nursery to assist those with kids. We invite you to join us as we go deeper into Gods Word together.




Periodically we offer mid-week ministry classes and seminars.

Daniel | 12 Weeks

Taught by John Wecks


Relax! God’s got this! He’s in charge of everything all the time including every single election to government offices whether by mail, by absentee ballot, or whatever means in whatever country. In this book we will thrill over the fact that God’s unwavering promises always come through in the smallest detail for the whole world and our own lives. We learn how to thrive in enemy territory. We will watch what happens when we trust the Lord in impossible situations. We will learn from Daniel, “a man highly esteemed by God” (9:23).
