Spring Session 2 (6:30-8:00 p.m.)
taught by Tim Witte | Room 114
In Romans 12:2, God commands us: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” This class is for men and women who want to explore how the Bible’s message through the power of the Holy Spirit transforms our thinking and enables us to discern truth and error, living fruitful, gospel-centered lives in this fallen world. We will examine our basis for knowing truth, the Bible’s definition of wisdom, and how biblical truth relates to our understanding of history, science and expression. Also, we will see how we can be agents for biblical thinking in our family, our church, and our community.
Children & Conversion
taught by Pastor Marc Goodwin | Room 116
When adults are converted and become followers of Christ, there is often a dramatic shift in their life – a turning away from a former life of sin to a new life of following the Savior. But for those who grow up hearing – and seemingly believing – the gospel from a very young age, the experience of conversion may look quite different! At times it can be hard for us as parents, grandparents, and Christians in general to know how to think about the conversion of children. It can feel perplexing at times to long for the conversion of children, but to feel a lot of uncertainty about where they stand with the Lord. This class is for those who have a heart for children (whether their own or others’), and want to grow in their understanding of how to biblically think about, and work toward, the conversion of the children in their lives.
Impact/Biblical Leadership Academy
taught by Pastor Larry McCall | Room 118
Being a leader is a calling that is both challenging and rewarding. But, how do you lead? In our ever-changing culture, models about leadership come and go. In this class, we will focus on God’s changeless principles of leadership as found in His Word, and on the leader’s convictions, character and competence. This class is part of our IMPACT training, seeking to prepare current and future leaders at CCC in such realms of ministry as elders, deacons, Life Group Leaders, children and youth workers and Life Education teachers. However, the class is open to all men and women who want to learn biblical leadership principles that can help them in the home, at church, at work or in the community. Interactive manuals will be provided for each participant.
