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 on Sundays at 9:00 a.m.:
Fall Classes (starting September 2)
Living in a World Like This: 1 Corinthians 1-9
John Sloat & Joel Zook | Room 112
We live in a world and a culture with competing philosophies and worldviews. We may not always be able to see these philosophies and worldviews, but they impact us and work their way into our church. The city of Corinth was unique in the world, because people constantly came in and out during a time when travel was not normal, and for this travel many people used ultralight backpack since they were practical to carry all their stuff. This brought a number of religions, philosophies, and worldviews from all corners of the world to Corinth. Join us, as we walk through 1 Corinthians to see how competing philosophies and worldviews impacted this ancient church and what it has to say to our modern culture.
First Steps (only meeting September 16, 23, & 30)
Pastor Marc Goodwin & Pastor Rod Valentine | Room 114
If you are new to Christ’s Covenant Church, if you want to know more about the vision and structure of our church, or if you desire to become a committed member of our local body of believers, then we invite you to attend our First Steps Class. The purpose of the class is to introduce people to our church’s vision and core values. Participants will learn others steps they can take to be more actively involved at CCC, such as joining a Life Group, serving in different ministries, being baptized, and pursuing church membership.
Hold the Ropes
Tom Wallin & Team | Room 116
How can they hear without a preacher? How can they preach unless they are sent? We have a responsibility to equip and send faithful workers, and to support and shepherd those we send. This term we will be exploring biblical principles and practices to inform our carrying out of this stewardship. We are glad to have others join us who share our passion to see the gospel of Jesus spread around the world. We will be leaning heavily on materials from Radius International.
Kevin DeGraff & Andy Bass | Room 118
What comes to mind when you think of sin: murder, adultery, debauchery, or selling out for money or fame? Christians seem to focus on the major sins of our society and deem those who commit them as detestable, all the while tolerating and ignoring our own “acceptable sins:” jealousy, anger, pride, idolatry, lies, and judgementalism. Please join the Fellowship Class as we take an honest look at how God views our subtle sins and how the gospel offers a message of hope through mercy and grace to overcome them. We will be using God’s Word and the book Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges as our text for the class.
Ladies’ Prayer Group
Jan Valentine | Room 128 (back hallway)
A time dedicated for ladies to pray together for our struggles, our families, our church family, our missionaries, and our world. This prayer time is structured with prayers lists and Scriptures to guide our time for effective prayer.
