Classes that walk through core Christian beliefs with an emphasis on how theology should inform our choices and pursuits in everyday life.
Our emotions and feelings are part of what it means to be created in the image of God. Yet Jeremiah warns us that our hearts are deceitful above all else. In this three-week class, we will look to Scripture to better understand what emotions are, why they exist, what they teach us, and how to handle them.
Paul says that the single person is not tied down by worldly things, like how to please their spouse, but rather "is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord (1 Corinthians 7:32). But what does it look like to be undivided in our attention? In this class, we will pursue what God says about singleness when worldly voices persuade us otherwise. We will discuss how to trust God in singleness because He is sovereign and good, He has provided all we need in Christ, and He has given us a new identity.
We believe the church is the primary vehicle for the care and provision of children from hard places, and this class will introduce you to a tool that is research-based and gospel-centered. Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) is a holistic approach specifically designed to help you care for children who come from hard places, such as maltreatment, abuse, neglect, multiple home placements, and violence, but the principles apply to all children. It is our hope that this class will equip you to care for children from hard places whether you are a parent, babysitter, or simply present in a child’s life.
Wisely stewarding our finances provides us with opportunities to worship God, grow in Christlikeness, and show Christ to the world. This class aims to reorient our hearts to view money the way God intended and give practical wisdom in how to manage our finances to build God’s kingdom instead of our own.
Studying the Bible can be hard work, and sometimes it's hard to know where to begin. In this class, we will learn how to discern the genre of a passage, read it in context, understand theological themes and cultural norms, and build a robust Scriptural vocabulary. We will workshop tools and concepts in order to grow in the knowledge and grace of our Savior.
