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:
Winter Life Education Classes (Dec. 7, 2014 – March 1, 2015)
Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
Women’s Study: The Son of David, taught by Kate Harmon & Bethany Tribbett | Rm. 112
This video Bible study for women will feature Nancy Guthrie’s The Son of David: Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books. Each week, we’ll watch the teaching chapter and then discuss the content and its implications for our lives. For those who wish to work through the daily study questions, we recommend purchasing the companion book The Son of David—discounted copies will be available in the Resource Center. “This study of the OT Historical Books—Joshua through Esther—enables us to see the kingdom of God not only as it once was, but also as it is now, and as it will be one day. We will see how Jesus is the ‘greater Joshua who leads his people into rest; the greater Boaz who has done all that is necessary to redeem; the greater King who will sit on David’s throne forever; and the greater Restorer who is building his church from ruined stones.’” (For a preview of the video series, see the following link: http://vimeo.com/68146532)
The Five Solas of the Reformation, taught by Pastor Larry McCall | Rm. 114
(Please note, this class will only meet Jan. 11-Feb. 1)
The Protestant Reformation of the 16th Century had a profound impact upon the church of Jesus Christ. Through the leadership of men like Martin Luther and John Calvin, there was a recovery of key doctrines underlying the gospel: Salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, according to the Scripture alone, for the glory of God alone. These five “alones” are called the Five Solas of the Reformation. We’ll spend one week on each sola in order to understand the context and scope of these profound doctrines that have shaped the spiritual heritage of evangelicalism.
The Gospel According to Mark, Part 2, taught by Mike Miller & Edward Robertson | Rm. 116
The Gospel of Mark offers an action-packed and fast-paced account of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. From his baptism through his death and resurrection, Mark chronicles the teachings, parables, and miracles of Jesus. During this class we will see the authority and power of the Son of God, who came in the flesh to save those who were sick and in need of a Great Physician. We covered the first half of the Gospel of Mark this fall, and plan to cover the remaining 8 chapters this winter. We’re about to get into some really good stuff—so why don’t you join us for the rest of our series? We’ll wrap up our study in late February.
