INTRODUCTIONS TO APOLOGETICS
Led by Rich Heavener
In any serious discussion the idea that something is “wrong” with the world is bound to surface. But just where do our concepts of “rightness” or “wrongness” originate and how are they justified? In this class we will learn how the moral argument for God’s existence is a very powerful and useful tool in personal evangelism and will tackle hard questions that all of us face on a daily basis.
DISCIPLINES OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH: SOLITUDE, COMMUNITY, MEDITATION ON THE WORD
Led by Pastor Dan Osborn
The disciplines of the Christian Faith are given to us so that we might be actively growing and maturing in our love and surrender to Jesus Christ. This class will focus on the purpose of Christian disciplines while developing practical ways that we can grow in our practice of these disciplines.
GOD’S BIG PICTURE: A PRIMER IN BIBLICAL THEOLOGY
Led by Bruce Chimani
Is the Bible one coherent book? Or many books haphazardly collated to no meaningful end? Vaughn Roberts’ book God’s Big Picture will help us navigate the storyline of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation to see how it all fits together, telling of God’s wonderful plan to save the world through Jesus Christ. This primer in Biblical Theology will not merely focus on God’s self-revelation in the sixty-six books of the Bible but on the actual “divine activity” of God as it unfolds in history and is recorded in those sixty-six books.
