Spring 2019 Course Descriptions
March 31, 2019-June 23, 2019
– Dean Ressler
Jesus clearly stated that the two greatest commandments in Scripture are to love God and to love our neighbor. When He spoke of this kind of love, He used the word “AGAPE”, the highest form of love. Christians often talk about agape love. But what does it mean? And how can we apply the qualities of agape love listed in 1 Corinthians 13 in our relationships with our families, friends, and co-workers? Join Dean in a discovery of God’s Word about practicing agape love in all our relationships.
The Doctrine of Salvation, Part 2
– Chris Von Holt & Daniel Waterman
In part 2 of this course, we will study our response to God’s saving work in our lives. We’ll also review the history of the doctrine of salvation, from the early church fathers to the current differing beliefs within the Christian tradition. But most importantly, we will explore God’s Word and marvel at His constant loving pursuit of us since Adam and Eve. Whether you have participated in part 1 of this course or not, join us for an exciting study of the greatest story of all time – God saving people!
David – Shepherd, Fugitive, King
– John Colabroy
No other description could be more praiseworthy than to be called one who is after God’s own heart. As we read about his life, we find countless incidents of David resisting temptation and remaining true to his God. And yet, we also find David sinning mightily, committing the ultimate sin of pride, until he willingly repents and confesses. Join John on a fascinating exploration of the life of David, a man with whom we can all identify, in both the best and the worst of our lives.
– John LoRusso
Do you desire to share your faith with others? If you are like many, evangelism may not come easy. In fact, it may seem intimidating and downright frightening at times. In this class, we will help prepare you to share your faith by learning what you want to say, and how you want to say. If you want to be more obedient in sharing the Gospel, then join John in this course as we discover how to more naturally include God in our conversations and share our faith with the world around us.
Life in the Body of Christ
– Glenn Felty
Jesus said that the world will know we are his disciples by the love we show towards one another as members of the Body of Christ (John 13:35). But exactly how do we manifest that love in concrete, visible practices? We will find that out by examining the “one another” commands God requires from each of us in our actions and attitudes as disciples of Christ. Join Glenn in discovering how to fulfill Christ’s mandate to “love one another” (John 13:34).
Ecclesiastes – Disenchanted with the God-Denying Delusion
– Ben Walters
“What is life about? Why do my efforts in life seem to be futile and fruitless?” These questions continue to haunt mankind, as life can oftentimes seem pointless and without hope. In a journey through the Book of Ecclesiastes, you will discover that a life of contentment can only be found in the person of God, and in His great gifts He bestows to us. Join Ben in a study of the great philosophical text of the Bible, and how you can find soul-satisfying peace in a broken and painful world.
