  • “Putting on the Armor of God” (Ephesians 6:10-15) – Scott Shanahan, Missionary to Italy
    • Spiritual warfare! Let’s examine this descriptive passage anew and discern what the apostle Paul is implying.
  • “Arriving Back at Camp” (Joshua 10:40-43) – Cory Myers, League City COC
    • A soldier must fall back from time to time to prepare for re-entering the battle. We need to retreat from time to time from the spiritual warfare in order to regroup, repair, and recharge (Mk 6:30-31).
  • “Maintaining the Armor” (Ephesians 6:18) – Guyton Montgomery, Milestone COC
    • A soldier must fall back from the spiritual warfare in order to maintain his armor and prepare to re-enter battle.
  • “Removing the Rust” (Matthew 6:19) – Cory Myers, League City COC
    • We often get too bogged down in worldly affairs, how do we get back to center?
  • “Maintaining Our Spirituality” (James 1:2-4) – Cory Myers, League City COC
    • As we reenter battle, we will get distracted again. We should resolve to not lose what we have rebuilt.
  • “Suiting Up with Armor Anew” (Joshua 1:11) – Cory Myers, League City COC
    • A soldier does not just stay in camp. Once he is recharged, repaired, and renewed, he must return to battle. He is ready. It is all about attitude!
  • “Maintaining Our Servanthood” (Titus 3:8,14) – David West, Pace COC
    • Paul instructed Titus that Christians “should be careful to maintain good works” (Titus 3:8,14).
  • “Maintenance is Stewardship: Your Talents/Gifts” (1 Peter 4:10) – Chance Blackmer, Gulf Breeze COC
    • We all have gifts that we can use for His service. A look at the “Parable of the Talents”.
  • “Practicing Our Skill” (2 Timothy 2:15) – Preston Silcox, Avalon COC
    • Every soldier must learn how to wield his sword, otherwise he could injure himself, or someone else he didn’t intend to injure. Don’t we have a responsibility to use our sword (Bible) correctly when studying with others?
  • “Sharpening the Sword” (Hebrews 4:12) – Josh Holloway, Jay COC
    • Swords can become dull. Every soldier must sharpen his sword before battle. A look at developing study habits.
  • “Still Much to Do!” (Psalm 92:13,14) – Richard Rogers, Brewton COC
    • A breakout class designed especially for our older, wiser saints. The battle doesn’t stop just because we have aged. We may not be as fast, or as strong physically, but we are often much wiser than younger Christians. There is still much we can do in His kingdom.
  • “Maintaining Relationships: Adversaries and Critics” (Matt 5:44) – Ben Boyd, Avalon COC
    • Difficult Conversations and Conflict Resolution; everyone has those certain acquaintances that are difficult.
  • “Maintaining Relationships: That Special Someone” (2 Tim 2:22) – Casey Crawford, Scenic Hills COC
    • What might a Christian do to find a mate, or be involved in Christian “dating”?
