the Bible as history

a fuller picture of faith in the lives of everyday people

Taught by: Mitch Evans

The Bible is not full of theoretical concepts to live by, but stories of everyday people and how God interacted in their lives. When we get beyond the theoretical to our own every-day faith our relationship with God comes alive. To see an every-day relationship with God develop, we are helped tremendously by seeing examples of how God has interacted with actual people in the Bible. Therefore, this class seeks to understand the historical context - in all of its gritty but beautiful detail - of specific people and how God worked in their midst. In order to provide this type of insight we will talk through the historical accounts and background of biblical people and events. By understanding the lives of everyday people through whom God worked in incredible ways, we are able to discover direction and inspiration for our own every-day faith.

how people change

Understanding God's process for transformation in the christian life

taught by: Justin Morehead & Jeremy Eastburn

Do you feel stuck in your growth as a Christian? Do Christians around you seem aimless in their walk with Christ? If so, this may be the class for you! This class is a 10 week study of God's process for transformation in the Christian life. We will use the Scripture and principles presented in the book, How People Change by Timothy S. Lane and Paul David Tripp. Though it won't be a formal "book study" we will lean heavily on the structure and aim of this book each week in class. The Christian life is a changing life. The Bible says we are being transformed from one degree of glory to the next in Christlikeness (2 Cor. 3:18). Join us as we study God's process for how people change.

the pursuit of holiness

spiritual growth grounded in the holiness of god

taught by: Chris Norris

Christians are often influenced by the call to morality that comes from society rather than the call to holiness that comes from God. This book study will encourage you, challenge you, and then tell you, "God calls us to holiness." This is a work that is rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our pursuit of holiness is found in the holiness of God and we share in this holy living through the gospel as it propels and directs the Christian life.
