Our Life Education classes take place on 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. They are a context for discipleship that we like to call “occasional community.” While our Life Groups ofter ongoing community (groups stick together for far longer periods of time and grow deep relational roots), our Life Education classes typically meet for a quarter of the year and focus on a specific topic. These classes cover a range of topics, but they all seek to connect the gospel to every day life. Classes for children and students are offered simultaneously on the other side of the building.
These are the classes currently (or soon-to-be) offered for adults:
THE WAY OF THE WISE: A Study in Proverbs
meets in Room 112 – Teachers: Jo Kateule, Mike Nixon, Josh Topel, and Tim Witte
Without wisdom, we are all fools. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Prov. 1:7; 9:10). Join us as we seek to grow in wisdom by studying the book of Proverbs. We will learn how to fear God in various situations and spheres of life, and ultimately, meditate on Christ as the wisdom of God made flesh. Through His grace and guidance, we will learn the way of the wise.
THE FELLOWSHIP: Look at the Book
meets in Room 118 – Teachers: Andy Bass and Caleb Dudeck
Join this class in which participants strive to love and encourage one another in their daily walk with God. This session, they will be learning from John Piper (via his “Look at the Book” materials) about the uniqueness of God and how to grow in love of God. “Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
AT HIS FEET: Ladies Prayer Gathering
meets in Room 116 – Leader: Jan Valentine
“One day Jesus was praying . . . When He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). Ladies of all ages, please join us for an hour of prayer as we turn the prior week’s sermon into prayer requests for the family of believers at CCC. As Steve Henry once shared in one of our Sunday evening prayer meetings, “our sovereign God chooses to use our prayers to accomplish His purposes.” It will be a delight to pray together.
meets in Room 114 (only June 13-27)
This three-week class is designed for those who are new to CCC–to help you learn more about the vision, values, and discipleship venues of the church. It also is a great opportunity to meet others who are new to the congregation, and to learn about how to get involved in community and service among the church body.
