Grow // It’s one of our four core values; we take studying the Bible seriously. This fall, you can enroll in a Grow Class (or two if you want to!). All classes will run for 8 weeks, from October 4 – November 22nd. Please click the link at the bottom of the page to enroll in the class. This helps our teachers prepare and helps us send you the information you need to participate.
Justice in the Psalms
Sundays at 9 am // Room 210
Taught by Anne Derksen
Have you ever wondered why a collection of songs, poems, and prayers contains the words, “Happy are those who seize your infants and dash them against the rocks?” Or noticed that many Psalm readings omit the violent, vengeful verses? Offering us insights into his character, the Psalmists describe God as majestic and mighty, a deadly enemy and righteous judge. Come and learn about an under-explored side of the Psalms.
The Life of Joseph
Sundays at 10:45 am // Room 254
Taught by John King
Sold into slavery, promoted to second-in-command, dreamer, prophet, interpreter, commander. Joseph, the son of Jacob and Rebecca, looms over the Old Testament as a larger-than-life figure. In this eight-week class, we’ll dig into the life of Joseph and learn what made him tick, find out where his faith in God came from, and experience how he walked with God in the midst of adversity.
Reading through the Gospels
Thursdays from 7:30-8:30 PM
Led by Alyssa and Mark Dunker
In this 8-week virtual class we’ll read through all four gospels in 8 weeks. Each week outside of class, you will read a portion of the Gospels, so when we gather together we can discuss our observations and questions in smaller break-off groups. Note: this class takes place on Thursday evenings through Zoom.
“Letters to a Birmingham Jail” Book Discussion
Mondays from 7:30-8:30 PM
Led by Bill Shewan and Tom Macy
In light of the ongoing injustices playing out in our nation, and having recently pondered Micah 6:8 on Sunday morning, let’s begin a journey toward deepening our understanding of the underlying issues by reading the book, “Letters to a Birmingham Jail“, Moody Press. Join a lively conversation about this important topic using this helpful collection of essays written by different church leaders. Prepare for our first discussion by reading pages 15-54 in advance.
