Authentic change occurs when we commit ourselves to the application of sound teaching. This is where Life Education comes in. At Christ’s Covenant Church, we are committed to serving our people by offering Sunday morning classes that connect the truths of the Gospel to everyday life. After all, changing lives is what the Gospel is all about. Here is a list of classes currently offered:
Spring Classes (starting March 4-May 27)
When Sinners Say I Do
Pastor Larry McCall, Pastor Rod Valentine, Greg Holladay, & Steve Longbrake | Room 112
Have you ever noticed that every married couple brings baggage into their marriage – baggage that brings challenges and difficulties? Interestingly, everybody’s baggage is the same, in essence. The Bible calls it “sin.” So, what’s a married person to do? Thankfully, the gospel of Jesus Christ brings help and hope. In this class, we are going to learn how to apply the gospel in life-transforming and marriage transforming ways. We’ll be using Dave Harvey’s excellent book, When Sinners Say “I Do”. The teachers of this class are each committed to the gospel and have been married for more than 30 years. Whether you’re engaged to be married or have already celebrated your 50th anniversary, please join us. Books are already available in the CCC Resource
A Study in the Book of Nehemiah
Jo Kateule & team | Room 114
The book of Nehemiah is about the sovereign work of God for His people, primarily through His servant Nehemiah, who says “the gracious hand of God had been on me.” Like Joseph and Esther, God had strategically placed Nehemiah so that He could bring about good for His people. Though the story deals with the rebuilding of the broken down walls, there is more to it. It is about rebuilding, restoration, and reformation of broken lives. Prayer and the Word of God proved crucial to the rebuilding of Jerusalem. Leadership, organization, teamwork, delegation, and overcoming opposition are other great lessons we get from the story of Nehemiah. This class is for anyone who has been touched by the gracious hand of God and who wants to see lives of family or community members restored.
Larry DuBose & team | Room 116
Every true Christian has an adoption story. This class will begin by unpacking what accompanies being adopted into God’s family. Families who have walked through the process of adoption will share their successes and struggles with the class. This is a great opportunity to meet families who have walked through the process, those who are currently walking through it, those considering it, and even those just wanting to hear testimonies of God’s faithfulness. A recommended book for this class is Russell Moore’s Adopted for Life.
Kevin DeGraff & Andy Bass | Room 118
This class is a Bible-based, relationally oriented group of people who gather on Sunday mornings to pray for one another and to encourage and challenge one another with God’s truths. Currently we are learning about the spiritual disciplines God graciously offers us for the purpose of knowing Him better and becoming more like Christ. This series will last through March. Starting in April the Fellowship class will be looking at Jerry Bridges book Respectable Sins.
