SUNDAY

THE GOSPEL IN A WORLD OF RELIGIONS

Numerous religions exist in the world.  They each claim to hold the truth to the core questions of life such as: What is the nature of God?  What is the nature of man? What went wrong in the world?  And, what is the answer for suffering and pain?”  This class will examine those different truth claims and compare them to the Christian worldview and then discuss ideas for evangelism in our diverse religious culture.  The Global Gospel in a World of Religions is a DVD based curriculum from David Platt (Secret Church) combined with opportunity for group discussion.

NAVIGATING YOUR FINANCES GOD'S WAY-

Becoming a fully devoted, Spirit empowered follower of Christ includes learning God’s Word and applying it to every area of life.

 33 SERIES FOR MEN 

Many men lack clarity about what it truly means to be a man. As a result, many men are in a state of confusion. They end up disappointed with life and find themselves lonely and drifting. They’re comparing and competing, focused mainly on trying to keep up with everybody else. Too many guys don’t know how to answer the question “who am I as a man?” they end up settling for a “less-than” life. They don’t have a compelling manhood vision that is bigger and more meaningful than the conventional manhood that much of the world seems to be chasing. This study will examine God’s design for Fatherhood and Marriage as illustrated in Scripture and examine how God is redeeming each man’s unique story for His glory.


Teacher: Matt Russell and Adam Harris

Dates: Sept. 6 - Dec. 6

Time 6:30p-8p

Location E5-6

Cost: $30 for both books
