Jesus Speaks

Mark Brown I Full Term I Room 4

We know as believers in Christ, we are his sheep and his sheep know His voice. Yet we live in a day when we often hear, “The Lord told me…” with a confidence that is suspect as well as enviable. How do we know what he is saying and if we are hearing the real voice of Jesus. This class will focus on two aspects of hearing His voice, the post-resurrection appearances of Jesus, i.e. Mary in the Garden all the way to Jesus’ ascension and Pentecost. The second will be a practical look at other passages to help us grow not just in our confidence in recognizing the tone of His voice but our faithfulness to obey.

Philippians & Colossians

Dennis Jewell & Michael Lemon I Full Term I Room 17

Come join us for a study of these two marvelous books – Philippians during the first half of the term and Colossians in the second. These books have much to teach us, both on how we should live and the Christ whom we serve. Together we will walk through them, looking closely at what we can learn about God and how we may apply that to our lives.

Half Term Class:
Feb 5 - Mar 12

The Gospel

Dan Rudman & Rick Pratte I First Half-Term I Room 5

In too many of our churches it is the beauty of the gospel culture that is the missing piece of the puzzle. But when the gospel is allowed to exert its full power, a church becomes radiant with the glory of Christ. We will use Ray Ortlund’s book, “The Gospel: How the Church Portrays the Beauty of Christ,” as an outline to stir us to revive our understanding of the depths of the reality of the Gospel. As Ortlund writes, “Gospel doctrine creates a gospel culture. . . When the doctrine is clear and the culture is beautiful, that church will be powerful. . .  Without the doctrine, the culture will be weak. Without the culture, the doctrine will seem pointless. ” Join us for this 6-week challenging discussion. As Ortlund states, “There are no shortcuts to getting there.”

Half Term Class:
Mar 19 - May 7

Being Human is Stranger than it Used to Be: A Biblical Theology of Humanity

Kevin Lee & Ryan Mayo I Second Half-Term I Room 16

The psalmist once asked of God, “What is man that you are mindful of him?” Understanding what it means to be human and how to live humanely is central to the church’s collective faith and practice. This class will explore a Biblical vision of what it means to be human and the joy of living as humans the way God intended.
