ADULT CLASSES @ 9:40am

SHARING OUR FAITH, Luke Crook Howell Auditorium
Evangelism normalized. How can we share our faith within the existing rhythms, relationships, and conversations of our lives? Can we take out the stereotypes and become disciples of Jesus who talk in normal ways that appeal to others? Come join 10 weeks of learnings toward this end.
THE GOSPEL-CENTERED LIFE, Greg Hjort Chapel
Is it realistic to think that the gospel can shape every aspect of life and conduct? Colossians 1:6 says so, but how does that really happen? Will our personal growth and church mission be stunted if we don’t grasp the gospel deeply enough? These are the questions this study will seek to answer.
THE PARENTING JOURNEY, Stacy Kutz, Carreen Smith Room 5
It’s not about perfect behavior. It’s about passionate hearts and loving God. Can we raise kids with good character and a faith that lasts? This class won’t take the challenge out of parenthood, but it will help you to connect with your kids and encourage them to connect with God in a vibrant faith.
