Our Life Education classes take place at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. They are a context 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.
Spring Classes (starting March 1)
Proverbs for Everyday Life
Pastor Larry, Pastor Marc, and Team | Room 112
Proverbs 4:7 says, “The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.” That’s pretty clear, isn’t it? Get wisdom. Everyone is welcome to join us in this class as we seek to help each other gain a heart of wisdom as we explore the Book of Proverbs together. Though anyone should be able to benefit from our discussions in this class, there will be attention given when appropriate to helping parents in discipling their children in God’s ways. Each class member will be encouraged to use a copy of Lydia Brownback’s study guide on the Book of Proverbs. In addition to that resource, parents will be encouraged to purchase and use with their children Marty Machowski’s book “Wise Up.” Both books are available in the CCC Resource Room.
First Steps (meets April 19 – May 3)
Pastor Marc Goodwin & Pastor Rod Valentine | Room 114
If you are new to Christ’s Covenant Church, if you want to know more about the vision and structure of our church, or if you desire to become a committed member of our local body of believers, then we would like to invite you to attend our First Steps Class. The purpose of the class is to introduce people to our church’s vision and core values. Participants will learn steps they can take to be more actively involved at CCC, such as being baptized, pursuing church membership, joining a Life Group, and serving in various ministries.
Exploring Titus and 2 Timothy
John Sloat and Ozzie Fullmer | Room 114
Most of Paul’s letters were written to churches and contained encouragements, corrections, and instruction for the whole church. In his letters to Titus and Timothy, we see a different side of Paul because he can be more personal in his writing. We see Paul being loving to these young men, instructing them to hold fast to the gospel and how to build up the churches they are leading. While his gospel is the same, some of the topics and tone are different from his other letters. Come and discuss Paul’s words toward younger people in the faith who are attempting to lead ministries.
Hold the Ropes
Pastor Tom Wallin & team | Room 116
The stories we believe help us derive meaning and purpose from life. The story of God from Creation to New Creation challenges every worldview. It involves us in the action of the story, showing us our place in it. It shows us where God is taking history, and because of that, we are compelled to join Him in His work. Using materials from Access Truth, we will be looking at the Metanarrative of Scripture to see how God progressively reveals Himself through the narrative, and the importance of wrapping our minds around the Biblical story before challenging others with it.
Andy Bass & Caleb Dudeck | Room 118
Come together with other Christ followers as we study God’s word and encourage one another in our daily walk with God. We will studying how to battle unbelief through a “Look at the Book” series by John Piper. As we love and support one another, we will cover topics such as: the dangers of unbelief, killing sin, how to love people, anxiety, pride, patience, and bitterness. Come, learn, and grow with us.
At His Feet
Jan Valentine | Room 128
Ladies, please join us in the 9 o’clock hour as we pray through our sermons from Galatians. We take the prior week’s sermons and turn them back into prayer requests for believers and unbelievers at CCC.
