The Doctrine of God

“Let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth.” (Jeremiah 9:24) God has made Himself known to us in part because our joy depends upon our knowledge of God. Our purpose in studying the doctrine of God will be to take hold of that which God has revealed about Himself in His word so that our hearts and minds will be filled with a greater love for Him. The goal of the study of God is not informational but transformational. It is about doxology and devotion. Among the topics of this study will be God’s existence, His simplicity, His eternality, and His triune nature. This class is taught by Pastor Todd Pruitt.

Fundamentals of the Christian Faith

Who is God? Was Jesus a real, historical person? What were His claims? What is sin and how does it affect my life? What is “The Church” and what is its role? How am I called to live mylife? This is the course to gain a better understanding of the basics of the Christian faith, including a deeper appreciation for the power of God in your life. Whether a non-believer, a new or well-established Christian, we encourage you to come and bring your questions with you! This class is taught by Elders Larry Chico and Jerry Weniger.

Your Thoughts & Emotions and How They Impact Your Relationships

Do your relationships tend to be stormy, stoic, stuck, or satisfying? Are you able to distinguish between your thoughts and emotions? The Bible teaches that our emotions are an indispensable part of what makes us human—and plays a crucial role in our relationships with God and others. We will explore how God designed emotions for our good and how we need to properly engage with our emotions—even the more difficult ones like fear, anger, shame, guilt, and sorrow—so we can better understand what they reveal about our hearts and handle them wisely in everyday moments. This class is taught by Greg Becker, Elder and Director of Congregational Care & Counseling, and John Kuebler, retired Pastor and Clinical Director of Journey Counseling Ministries.

1 Timothy

Timothy is one of the pastoral letters that the apostle Paul wrote to help guide and instruct the church. It focuses on a call to godly living while at the same time refuting and resisting false teaching and errors that would seek to pollute the gospel message. In this class we will get an overview of this letter while drawing out applications and implications for our day-to-day godly living. This class is taught by Pastor Tim Frost.

God of Promise

How does God relate to his people? Does the Bible tell one unified story or is it divided into various dispensations? Has God always had one people or has he had two different people (Israel and the church)? What is the significance of God’s covenant with Abraham? What is baptism and why do we baptize the infants of believers? These are the main questions we will be seeking to answer in this introduction to Covenant Theology. This class is taught by Pastor Todd Pruitt.

Discipleship in the Home

Parents, you are the primary spiritual influencers in your child’s life. This weighty role is a calling and a blessing but can lead to feeling overwhelmed or inadequate. As a group, we will explore discipleship as it relates to the parent/child relationship covering topics like: home worship, catechesis, discipline, generosity and tithing, parachurch organizations, skepticism, and ecclesiology. Come partner with other parents who desire to grow in shepherding their kids. This interactive course is taught by Pastor John Kidd.
