THE WESTMINSTER CONFESSION OF FAITH

Scott Rask I Room 16

In the 1640’s, church leaders compiled the Westminster Confession of Faith over an extended period of time, which has since served as a doctrinal foundation for the Church. Let’s spend a semester studying the meaning and application of this important confession for us and the Church. In short chapters, we will consider the importance of Scripture, Who God is in all three Persons, God’s eternal decrees, our sinfulness, the wonderful and stunning Gospel, covenants, free will, works, assurance, perseverance, the Solas of the Reformation, and many more. Let’s see God’s providence in preserving His Word and His message, and the proclamation of such, as time passes. If the Westminster Divines were correct, the study of the Confession and Scripture should cause us to glorify God and enjoy him forever--a good way to prepare for, or follow, a time of corporate worship.

First half-term Class:
Sept 9 - Oct 14

HONORING YOUR AGING PARENTS

Mark Lange I Room 5

As Christians, how do we Honor Our Aging Parents as commanded in Exodus 20:12. What does this look like in real life? This class will explore the different ways this may look from the time we first realize our parents need some assistance until death. Recognizing that each situation is different, class members will be encouraged to share their experiences during class.

Second half-term Class:
Oct 28 - Dec 2

GRACE 101: AN INTRODUCTION TO GRACE CHURCH

Bill Vogler, Rick Pratte & Ryan Randolph I Room 5

Whether you are new to Grace or have been at Grace for a while and have not been able to attend Grace 101, please consider joining us for this full-term class with an emphasis on learning about Grace EPC, what we believe and how this shapes our ministries. Grace 101 is valuable as it provides a window into the heart of our ministry, as well as a foundation for membership. It is also a great time to ask any questions that you might have wanted to ask, but haven't had the opportunity.

EVANGELISM AND THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD

Dave Upchurch I Room 3c

The Bible teaches the sovereignty of God and our own responsibility in all decisions we make. Together as a class we will read James I. Packer’s short book Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God to learn better how both are true as we respond in faith, repentance, and obedience to the Good News of the Gospel. Packer also helps us consider how God’s sovereignty relates to the command to preach the Gospel and the actual content of the Gospel message. Finally, we will consider the ways we can take confidence from understanding God’s rule in all things as we proclaim the Good News of God’s saving work.
