In Person – Chapel

Men, do you want to be radically different from the world around you? Do you wonder what it looks like to concretely live out the way of Jesus Christ in your everyday life from your marriages to your jobs to your spiritual disciplines? And to walk after Him in such a manner that our lives shine as salt and light to this dying world? Then come join us for our in-person study of Matthew 5-7 as we look together at what Christ has to say about what it means to follow Him in what is famously called the Sermon on the Mount.  

In Person – Youth Room

Video and Book series entitled God Does His Best Work With Empty by Nancy Guthrie

It’s amazing how heavy the weight of emptiness can feel, how much room it can take up in our souls, how much pain can be caused by something that isn’t even there. But while we may see the emptiness of our lives as our greatest problem, that’s not how God sees it. When God looks into the empty places of our lives, He sees His greatest opportunity. 

Join Nancy Guthrie in discovering why emptiness has never been, and never will be, a problem to God. As Nancy pulls back the curtain on God’s work to fill up emptiness as revealed throughout the Bible, you’ll experience page after page of grace and hope that your emptiness can and will be filled. You’ll begin to see that God really does do His best work with empty, as he fills it with Himself.

Class will be held in the chapel and will include a video, followed by discussion led by Nancy LoRusso.  The book is available for purchase on Amazon and 10ofthose.com.

From God to Us, A Doctrine of Scripture

Teacher: Dean Ressler
Location: Online via Zoom

 

The Bible is God’s Word. We firmly believe that. Yet we have all had questions. How did God communicate His Word to us? How do we know that the Bible is the Word of God? What about errors in the Bible? Why are there 66 books in our Bible but additional apocryphal writings in the Roman Catholic Bible? This course is designed to provide answers to such questions about the Bible and equip you to answer those who also have questions.
