Winter/Spring Classes (January-April 2019)
LIES WOMEN BELIEVE & THE TRUTH THAT SETS THEM FREE
January 9 – April 10, 2019
taught by Cassidy Topel & team | Room 112
Satan is the master deceiver; his lies are endless. And the lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles. This class for women will be using Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth’s book, Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free. Nancy exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women—lies about God, sin, priorities, marriage and family, emotions, and more. She then sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God’s grace, forgiveness, and abundant life.
LIES MEN BELIEVE & THE TRUTH THAT SETS THEM FREE
January 9 – April 10, 2019
taught by Josh Topel & team | Room 118
“God knows that…your eyes will be opened and you will be like God.” While this was not the first lie to be believed, it clearly wasn’t the last. Though Adam did not believe this lie (1 Tim. 2.14), he disobeyed God anyway. Have you ever wondered why? Worldly men seek to profit from the lies others believe. Wise men lay their own lives down to lead others to the truth. Christ alone turns their loss into gain. Knowing him as the Truth makes it possible for us to take him at his word and live it out. Join with other men who are interested in rejecting the lies men believe and seek to enter more fully into the truth that sets them free, as we engage this topic through the Bible with the help of Robert Wolgemuth’s book by this title.
LOST IN THE MIDDLE
January 9 – March 27, 2019
taught by Pastor Rod Valentine | Room 116
As we grow older, we look back on life and have regrets. We’re discouraged by the passing of our dreams. We realize we’re not the person we once wanted to be. The Bible teaches that this life is not our destination. It’s a preparation for a final destination. Lost in the Middle reveals that difficulties in life aren’t evidence of God’s inattention. In fact, they are signs of His grace, love, and faithfulness. God will take us where we don’t want to go to produce in us what we couldn’t achieve on our own. It’s called uncomfortable grace. When you begin to accept uncomfortable grace, it changes everything about your life. Aging, regret, and disappointment are no longer paralyzing realities. You no longer have to be afraid of life. You can move forward with anticipation because God is with you.
WALKING LIKE JESUS DID, PT. 2
January 9 – February 13, 2019
taught by Pastor Larry McCall | Room 114
An important question many Christians ask is, “What does Christian maturity actually look like? Well, maybe it would be best to tweak that question to “WHO does Christian maturity look like?” Christian maturity looks like Christ! Pastor Larry will lead this interactive class using his book Walking Like Jesus Did. Having covered the first 11 chapters this past session, we will be completing our study of the book over the next 6 weeks. Those who would like to join the class part-way through the book should have no difficulty, as each chapter can stand alone.
THE NEARLY WED CLASS
February 20 – March 27, 2019
taught by Pastor Marc Goodwin| Room 114
Are you engaged to be married – or hoping to be soon? Then, this would be a great class for you and your soon-to-be spouse. Pastor Marc will be leading those in this class through Bob Green’s book Tying the Knot, covering such topics as problem solving, communication, finances and more. This class will help lay the groundwork as you prepare for a Christ-honoring life together as a married couple. Engaged couples attending this class will also be encouraged to participate in more personal preparation for marriage by meeting with a pastor or a more mature mentor couple. Recently married couples are also welcome to join this class.
