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:
Summer Classes (June 5 – August 28, 2016)
Delighting in God’s Word
taught by Joe Helt | Room 112 | Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
Psalm 1 begins: “Blessed is the man…[whose] delight is in the law of the LORD.” Does that describe your own feelings toward the Bible? Or do you sometimes (or often) find it scratchy, dry, and unhelpful? The aim of this class is to ignite a passion for God’s Word so that it might become precious to you. This won’t be a “technical” guide to studying the Bible, but it will cover some basics of studying the Bible devotionally. Whether you’ve been a believer for 20 minutes or 20 years, we hope that this class will make your time in the Word more joy-filled and sustaining.
taught by Larry DuBose & Matt Malless | Room 116 | Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
Do you want to enrich your prayer life? Are you interested in fasting but unsure how to start? Do you desire to abide ever more deeply in fellowship with Christ? Join us – whether you have followed Christ for days, months, or years – as we delve into the disciplines of the faith! The saints of Scripture communed with God through prayer, fasting, study, memorization, and several other disciplines, as they communicated His Word through evangelism and service. We will study their examples and discuss how to practice these disciplines in our lives for the purpose of growing in godliness! We hope that you’ll join us.
Fall Classes (Sept. 4 – Oct. 16, 2016, no classes Sept. 11)
Faith & Politics: Avoiding the Chasms of Cynical Apathy, Antagonistic Activism,
& Self-Righteous Disdain
taught by Larry DuBose | Room 112 | Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
How should Christians think through the issues of the upcoming election? How should we address those issues with other people, especially if they have the greater issue of being apart from Christ? Join us as we look at our responsibility as citizens of a celestial kingdom, while in the meantime seeking to be faithful citizens in the here and now. One of the desired outcomes for this class is that believers become better equipped to evaluate the quickly changing culture and issues confronting us, being guided by a Biblical worldview and seeing the gospel as primarily important.
The Treasure Principle
taught by John Urschalitz | Room 114 | Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
What is the Treasure Principle? Simply put it is this: “You can’t take it with you – but you can send it on ahead.” Need further validation of this precept? Jesus himself said: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy . . . but store up for yourselves treasure in heaven . . . For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” In this six-week class we will unpack the Treasure Principle and the six “keys” to understanding it. We will also look at over 100 Biblical references in support of the Treasure Principle.
Biblical Manhood & Womanhood
taught by Joe Helt | Room 116 | Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
One of the most defining characteristics of men and women is that they are male or female. Yet, we are being bombarded in our culture with an ever-increasing pressure to blur these essential facts of Scripture. If you have wondered how to answer your friends and co-workers when they question your beliefs on the subject or if you are just wondering why it all matters, then join us for 12 weeks as we work our way through Scripture seeking to know why God created us male and female. Hundreds of questions and one always true, ever abiding Word of God to help us see clearly through the haze.
Why Do College Students Need the Local Church (and Visa-Versa)?
taught by Pastor Larry McCall & team | Room 118 | Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
Do students at a Christian college really need the local church? I mean, with chapels, Growth Groups, and Bible classes, isn’t life on campus enough? Let’s explore God’s Word together to see what He says about why we should love His Bride (the church) and why we all need the church for growing, belonging, and serving. This will be a relational class with an emphasis on helping college students get plugged into the local church. All college students are welcome, with those students new to CCC especially encouraged to come.
