Preview of Fall 2018 Wednesday Night Live Classes 

Preschool

The preschool class will again be led by Jodi and Jim Hendricks in the nursery area. They will be continuing to teach the toddlers basic Bible stories and sharing God’s love with each child that participates on Wednesday night.

 

Children (K-6)

Bible Black Belts:

Our elementary and middle school age students will be continuing to participate in Bible Black Belts. Recent surveys reveal that few adults have a proficient knowledge of the Bible. This curriculum helps familiarize children with the Bible, giving them a solid biblical foundation for a lifetime of faith. Bible Black Belts will meet in the children’s ministry room in the hallway behind the sanctuary.

Youth (7-12)

Priesthood

: Our Jr. High and High School students will be studying about the lives of Jesus' disciples. What were they like? How did they come to know Jesus? After Jesus ascended to Heaven how did they lead the early church? They will learn how the disciples story connects with their story today.

 

Adult Studies

Psalms:

The book of Psalms is often quoted and clichéd, but much less often contextualized. When we understand the Psalter relative to the circumstances in which it was written, we find a rich resource for God’s people. Through these prayers, God both speaks to us and models how we might speak back to Him. At its core, the book of Psalms is an instructional guide to a moment-by-moment walk with God through the world. This study will meet in the Parlor and will be led by Travis Warren.

Life Lessons from Galatians:

Whose approval do you hope to win? Friends? Co-workers? Someone in your family? What about God? Do you sometimes wonder if you need to do more to earn his approval? Religious teachers in the early church were insisting that faith was not enough, that being right with God required something more. Early Christians were almost ready to accept and follow these extra requirements. This disturbed the apostle Paul. So, he reminded the believers that salvation isn't based on following a religious code. Nor is it based on what we do (or don't do) or what we know or feel. Nothing is required on our part, except to believe. In showing us the profound difference between living by law and living by grace, he reminds us that we are indeed free in Christ. This study will meet in the Conference Room and will be led by Mary Jane and Jeff Silva.

Christianity and World Religions:

This study is a video-based small-group study and outreach program that explores four major world religions- Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism – and compares the beliefs of each with those of Christianity. This six-week study deals openly and honestly with questions people ask about other religions, including why we should believe the claims of Christianity over those of other faiths. As part of the study, author and presenter Adam Hamilton interviews a religious leader from each tradition. He treats the world religions with great respect, recognizing the unique contributions of each. In examining these major world religions and the beliefs of their followers, the Reverend Hamilton urges us as Christians to build bridges with others so that we might grow in our faith, seek peace in our world, love our neighbor, and find positive ways to share the gospel. This study will meet in the Revelation Classroom and will be led by Kaylyn Busch.

Celebration of Discipline:

Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the "classic Disciplines," or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found. Dividing the Disciplines into three movements of the Spirit, Foster shows how each of these areas contribute to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study, offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service, help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate disciplines of: confession, worship, guidance, and celebration, bring us nearer to one another and to God. This study will meet in the Pastor’s Office and will be led by Pastor Dee.
