Friendship

a 5-week class with Lee Campbell

God designed us for relationship with himself and with others. We don’t do well without relationship psychologically, physically, socially or spiritually. Yet, people report being increasingly lonely. If we had good parents they taught us that if we wanted a friend we needed to be a friend. Good advice! This class is devoted to the art of being a friend centered on a few important principles and opportunities to practice these principles.

Parenting Teens through Adults in Fellowship

a 5-week class with Liz Sweet

Having our believing children in fellowship is awesome! It supplies us with many advantages and tools absent from non-Christian homes. But it’s naïve to think it’s all smooth sailing if our kids follow Christ in a good home church. Young people on mission within close-knit community creates special challenges—not entirely unlike the ones we face. This class will focus on some of the special issues related to parenting Middle School, High School, and Adult children. In particular, it will focus on how to help children thrive in fellowship, while constructively facing the complexity of relationships in fellowship.

Leadership principles from the pastoral epistles

a 10-week class with Doug Patch

bible memorization class

an 8-week class with Ryan Weingartner

Have you ever tried to memorize a large portion of Scripture? Haven’t you always wanted to really go for it and see if you could memorize that whole chapter or that whole book of the Bible? Think of the fruit that would come for years if you had the motivation and skills to tackle a project like that.

In this class, you will make your own 8-week goal to memorize a portion of Scripture, based on your own abilities and stage of life. Each Wednesday night will begin with a short teaching to both inspire you to continue in that good work, as well as inform you on how to effectively memorize. Then, you will share what you have memorized with people in a small group. 

Join Ryan this fall in being diligent to present yourself approved to God as a worker who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
