Bible Class Opportunities Abound Throughout the Week
Sunday Mornings at 9:15am
S2 Scripture and Science – Pastor Charlie’s study will begin on Sunday, September 16, at 9:15am in the Fellowship Hall. We will be examining some of the latest scientific information from top scientists in a variety of study fields to see how science agrees with the message of the Scriptures. The title is “S2” which stands for Scripture & Science. Often as Christians we are told that science has all the answers and that the evolutionary theory is fact. Evolution is taught as fact in our schools. We are told that if we believe what Scripture says about God creating the world in six 24-hour days we are rejecting all of science. We are given the impression that all scientists believe and accept evolution as the explanation of how the world and all life came to be. This is simply NOT true. Scores of scientists in every field are turning to the “other paradigm” of a universal creator and a short creation time/new earth view. Come and join us—bring your Bible and join us for this study that incorporates Scripture, science and history.
“The Art of Parenting” (March 10—May 12) This video-based study will be facilitated by Pastor Steve and Calie with the goal to make faith the core of our parenting. Parents will end the experience with renewed confidence, fresh insights on raising children at different ages, and a parenting plan unique to each child’s personality & gifting. Topics include: Forming Character, Applying Discipline, Building Relationships, Understanding & Nurturing Identity, and much more. We encourage anyone to attend! No matter the age of your children, please join the conversation. If your children are older and out of the house, come and bless others with your experience and lessons learned. If your children are still young, or perhaps not yet born, come gain insights as your prep for that next season of life. Hope to see you on Sunday mornings at 9:15am in the upstairs youth room (off the balcony of the sanctuary).
Monday Mornings at 9:00am
“Pre-Game” with Pastor Steve – Have you ever sat in church on a Sunday morning, listened to the scripture readings and thought, “What the heck does that mean?” Sometimes it may be hard to find the common thread between the two or three lessons read during the worship services. Come join our growing group with a perfect way to start each new week. Our Monday morning Bible class looks at the upcoming Scriptures and takes time to consider the theme and personal application. Our conversations are often unpredictable, regularly entertaining, and also lead us to a place where we can find the “sweet spot” of God’s love and grace for our lives. Join the conversation on Monday mornings at 9am.
Wednesday Evenings at 7:15pm
“Church, Home and Beyond: Taking a Look at Faith Beyond the Church Walls”
A class for parents held March 13 through April 10
Your children learn a lot in confirmation, but what does it all really mean, and how can you help them stay engaged in their faith even after confirmation? Join DCE Intern Jan from 7:15pm until 8:00pm each Wednesday in Lent. During these discussion times, we’ll talk about the struggles of facilitating faith in youth, how to help them before, during, and after confirmation, and how to help keep the faith going! Not only are parents of current confirmation students invited, but so is the rest of the congregation! Hope you can join!
Thursday Mornings at 9:30am
Revelation We are trekking through the crazy, symbol-imposing and question-creating book of Revelation. This wild, otherworldly book may just seem a bit too strange and scary for your liking. But if you are able to truly grasp what John intends as he writes this book, you will discover incredible comfort. We’re digging deep into the word to find the encouragement and comfort God provides for the Church today. This is an especially relevant conversation in a decreasingly Christian culture. Come join the discussion on Thursday’s in the church library at 9:30am.
Friday Mornings at 6:00am
Men’s Bible Study with Pastor Steve – Our Friday morning crew is studying the book of Nehemiah. One of the greatest needs of society – whether in the church, the home, or government – is good leadership. Every institution needs leadership. All of us are affected by leadership: we are all subject to it, and most of us exercise it at times or expect to exercise it someday. Using the book of Nehemiah for illustration, we will consider the Bible teachings and principles of good leadership, which is a concern for all. Come with your Bible in hand as we read through and study this great book. Join a great group of guys for Christian encouragement, accountability, and prayer. We know it’s early (6am in the library) but the coffee is hot and we have open chairs to fill!
