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:
Fall Classes (starting Sept. 3)
Knowing God, Pt. 2
Pastor Larry McCall, Josh Lozano, Stephen Liebsch, and Gabe Tribbett | Room 112
A. W. Tozer wisely observed, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” Over the summer a group of people have been studying the Doctrine of God, using J. I. Packer’s classic book, Knowing God. This class is continuing through this next quarter. You are welcome to join the “Knowing God” class even if you have not been part of the study over the summer. Coming up, we’ll be exploring topics such as, “The Goodness and Severity of God,” “The Jealous God,” as well as “The Heart of the Gospel” and “The Adequacy of God.” May our minds be stretched and our hearts stirred!
The Reformation Through Church History
Larry DuBose & team | Room 114
Join us as we approach the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and look into the lives of the Reformers throughout church history! We will examine the idea behind the Reformation, “Reformed and always being reformed according to the word of God.” We will see how similar doctrines were contended for, again and again. We will see how Calvin and Luther stood on the shoulders of Augustine, and how each received their instructions from the Scriptures. We will see the relevance of these teachings in the present so that we too might have faith to “contend for the faith delivered once for all to the saints” (Jude 3).
Steve Longbrake | Room 116
We know it’s God’s grace that brings us to salvation, but isn’t our journey from our conversion forward largely a matter of our own effort? We often default to this mind-set about the daily Christian life, working hard, but often feeling like failures. Jerry Bridges calls this “the performance treadmill.” Is that really how we’re supposed to live the Christian life? Or, to quote the hymn “Amazing Grace,” is it more like “’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far, And grace will lead me home”? This class will be studying Jerry Bridges’ encouraging book “Transforming Grace,” discussing together how to live the Christian life in a Christ-centered, gospel-empowered way. Sound inviting? Well, you’re invited!
Kevin DeGraff & Andy Bass | Room 118
This class is focused on living out our faith together. Based on Acts 2:42, we will spend time each week building relationships, studying God’s Word, and praying together in an open atmosphere. Topics will include book studies and practical Christian living using the Bible as the foundation. If your desire is to know God better and learn how to live for Him, to get to know other people who will encourage, pray, hold accountable, and challenge you to serve, please join us!
