Southside University transforms our Sunday evening worship hour into an exciting opportunity for you and your family members to sign up for a variety of Bible study courses. We have courses for anyone, for men, for women, for teenagers, for children, for preschoolers, and we offer a nursery service. Read the desciptions of this semester's courses below.
CLASSES FOR ADULTS:
Experiencing God Bible Study Book includes revised printed content for 12 sessions, personal study between group sessions, and applicable Scripture. Also, each Book contains unique codes that enable you to access teaching videos for each session.
Over the years, God has used the truths of Experiencing God to awaken believers to a radically God-centered way of life. As a result, millions have come to know God intimately, to recognize His voice, and to understand His will for their lives. This new edition is revised, updated, and ready to help you again—or for the very first time—experience your Creator.
God is inviting you into an intimate love relationship through which He reveals to you His will, His ways, and His work. When you recognize where God is working, you can join Him in what He is doing. Carefully listening to His voice will anchor you in His plan and set you free to live it with boldness and freedom. Then you will experience God doing through you what only He can do.
We don’t teach money like everyone else (aka, the boring, confusing and just plain stupid advice that’s kept you broke). We hang our hats on the proven biblical principles that work for anyone.
With FPU, you’ll get:
- Practical lessons, not just a bunch of useless theories
- Simple, straightforward teaching that isn’t way over your head
- Guided steps so you always know what to do next with your money
CLASS FOR WOMEN
In this verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.
Additional purchase or renting of the video teaching sessions is recommended for the best experience of this Bible study book.
CLASS FOR MEN
Throughout history, many cultures have experienced various spiritual awakenings. These eras are often short-lived, but the people who experienced them are transformed forever. That’s what happened to Greg Laurie during the Jesus Movement in the late 1960s and early ‘70s. He entered these years as a drug-using hippie and exited as a new believer eager to see others come to know Christ, a quest he continues to this day.
The Jesus Revolution Bible study draws important parallels between the cultural atmosphere of that period and our own time of spiritual apathy and outright hostility. Group participants will discover a forgotten part of recent American history and, along with it, a reason to believe that God is not finished with today’s generation and the next great American revival may be on its way.

CLASS FOR TEENS
Everyone wants to be happy. We spend our money, time, and energy chasing our version of the good life. And on the way, we run ourselves into physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion. But what if the happiness we’re all striving for isn’t the happiness we were created for?
Pastor and author Dr. Derwin L. Gray believes there is a better road to happiness, and it is found in the Beatitudes of Jesus. In this section of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus revealed the shocking, countercultural path to true flourishing. It comes not through wealth, fame, or laughter but through poverty, obscurity, and mourning.
True happiness comes from a heart directed toward the kingdom of God and satisfied in Jesus the King. This 8-session small-group teen Bible study demonstrates how Jesus taught us to search for, find, and hold on to the good life.
