TRACK 1: JUNE 13-27

Tuesday Nights, 6:30-8pm

THE TORAH: An In Depth Overview

In this class we will explore the first five books of the Old Testament, known as the Law of Moses or The Torah. Our study will include a background on the history and culture of the time, how these books fit the overall story of the Bible and our lives today as followers of Jesus, as well as the main themes and ideas of each individual book.

WALK LIKE JESUS: A Study of the Life of Christ

In this class we will study the Life of Christ, focusing on 6 foundational priorities of what it means to “walk as Jesus walked” (1 John 2:6).  Jesus was “man as God intended man to be” – He showed us not only WHAT to do, but HOW to do what He did.  This material comes out of 30 years of studying the life of Christ.  When the course is completed, you will be able to disciple others in these six foundational priorities.

BIBLICAL FINANCE: Investing for the Future

Due to low sign ups, this course has been moved to a date later in the year (TBD).

A study of the Biblical view of stewardship and long term investing for kingdom advancement. We will review various investment vehicles, equity markets, historical performance, and how to invest your 401(k) and other investable cash with your specific goals. This is an excellent follow up to anyone who has previously taken Financial Peace University.

HOW TO READ THE BIBLE: Practical Steps for Understanding Scripture

Is studying God’s word for yourself ever intimidating? Do you ever feel like you don’t know where to start or how to handle some tough passages? Then this class is for you. I will be teaching very practical and easy to understand tools to help you start your journey for Biblical literacy.

RISE TO LIFE FOR PARENTS: How To Share God's Story WIth Your Kids

Have you ever thought, “Uhhh…how am I supposed to talk to a kid about THAT?” We all know we want our kids to know and experience God, but how can you explain those things in a way that they can understand? This class will help parents develop the language to talk through core concepts of the Christian faith with their kids ages preschool-8th grade.

KIDS U: Rise to Life

While parents are growing in their faith, we are offering a class for our incoming 3rd-6th graders to grow in their faith in an age appropriate way by offering a Rise U version of “Rise to Life” just for them!  We will dive into important questions like: What are we all doing here on planet Earth?  Where do I fit in? Why are people always talking about following Jesus?  We will tackle some big topics but have fun along the way.
