Helping Others Navigate Grief & Loss

A 4-week class with John Montgomery

Grief results from many sources: death, divorce, past trauma, unemployment, loss of friendship, etc. When we see someone struggling under the weight of grief, we want to help carry their burden. But have you ever felt confused about how to help a friend who has experienced a loss? Or how to “encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, [and] be patient with everyone.” (1 Thess 5:14). Too often, we shy away or remain silent out of fear of saying or doing the wrong thing. This class will go in depth into how to minister to those who are struggling with grief, loss and disappointment, how to ask appropriate questions, and how to speak truth with love.

Note: This course is designed to help an individual learn to support others, not find support for themselves.

The Upper Room Discourse (john 13-17)

A 4-week class with Ryan Weingartner

In John 13-17, John gives us inside access to the last lengthy speech Jesus gave to his disciples. The discouragement the disciples felt from their teacher leaving was to be replaced with the 'Encourager' who would provide even more than what Jesus gave them. Often thought of as a rambling discourse of isolated themes, you can instead trace the key ministries of the coming Holy Spirit for the church age. Join us as we identify these ministries of the Spirit, see how they get further explained in the epistles, and how they relate to exactly what we're called to in the church today.

Pentateuch III: Leviticus & Numbers

A 5 week class with Pat Reeder

This course is the third of four courses on the Pentateuch. Numbers and Leviticus probably take gold and silver medal in the contest for books of the Bible least understood by modern Christians. They might switch places in the contest for being the butt of many Christian jokes about the Bible. Nevertheless, Leviticus contains extensive literature on the High Priesthood and the sacrificial system, which is essential to understanding the nature of Christ’s atoning work as articulated in the book of Hebrews. Likewise, Numbers contains many lessons concerning the shepherding work of leadership, and God’s sovereign appointment thereof. We will also explore the way in which these books elaborate on themes of seed/nation, the Name and God’s dwelling place developed in Genesis and Exodus.
