He will also lead a discussion on the real-life challenges of applying biblical teaching to everyday decisions. What has God given us for guidance beyond the 10 commandments?

Good Parents Can Raise Great Kids!

Sundays, February 17*-March 3
*Note Date Change

9:30 AM  |  Room 108
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen

Every parent wants to do a great job raising their child!  And yet, we quickly discover parenting is an incredibly big challenge and there are no easy answers. But, there is no need to be overwhelmed or discouraged! While parenting can be confusing and challenging, the Bible does provide a lot of guidance for parents that helps us train our children in the way they should go. In this class we will look at biblical teaching and wise counsel from helpful teachers.  We will also spend time encouraging each other through discussion and prayer. Please join us!

 

Live a Life of Worship

Sundays, March 10 – April 7
9:30 AM  |  Room 108
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen & Christine Passig
Oftentimes people assume that worship just refers to the “music part” of a “worship service.” The Bible teaches us that worship is meant to be so much more! Join us as we unpack what the Bible teaches about worship and the role it is meant to play in all parts of our lives. Consider what some of the challenges are that discourage us from weaving worship into our lives and learn some practical ways to meet those challenges and grow in this part of your relationship with Jesus.

 

Live a Life of Faith-Driven Work

Sundays,  April 14-May 12
9:30 AM  |  Room 108
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen
Everyone is a worker. God is a worker and He has created us to work. Work can be a source of incredible joy and satisfaction. Work can be a way to show God’s love to others, to contribute to building a strong community, to creating goods that are necessary and good, and to providing money for meeting the costs of daily life and blessing others. Work can also be the source of great frustration, stress, discouragement and strife. How can we reclaim our work so that it honors God, blesses others and brings joy to us? In this course we will study what the Bible teaches about work and how our faith can guide the work we do, whether at home, in the community, at church or in a job.

 

Current Events & Prophecy

Sundays,  April 7
9:30 AM  |  Gym
Instructor: Dennis Lingo
In Mark 13:37 Jesus said, “What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”  But what exactly are we to watch for?  Jesus and the prophets told us of events that would be happening in the future as the 2nd Advent drew near. Is it possible that this generation is witnessing many of these events that were foretold? Let’s discuss these things using our Bibles and today’s headlines as we “encourage each other with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:18)

The Evangelism Toolbox

Sundays, February 17-March 3
11:00 AM  |  Youth Room
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen
One of the incredible privileges God gives us is the opportunity to introduce people to Jesus. It is one of the best gifts we can give anyone and yet we often pause before talking about Jesus because we are not sure what to do and are afraid to “fail”. Join us as we study God’s heart for all people and how we can personally and effectively be a witness for Jesus, so others will know the hope and joy we already have found through a faith relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

Living a Generous Life

Sundays, March 10-April 7
11:00 AM  |  Youth Room
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen
God is so generous! He so loved the world that he gave His Son. He has held nothing back and has blessed us in every way. So, how do we respond?  As God explained through His covenant with Abram, he has blessed us so we can be a blessing. In this class we will look at the variety of ways we, following God’s example, can be a blessing. What are the various ways we can live generously? What are the challenges to living generously? How do we cultivate an attitude of generosity in ourselves and with each other?

 

God’s Vision for His Church

Sundays, April 14-May 12
11:00 AM  |  Youth Room
Instructor: Pastor Geoff Bohleen
The Bible speaks of the Church as the “bride of Christ” and He loves it dearly. As followers of Jesus we are the Church and it is important to know what the Bible teaches about the Church and its purpose. How is the local church meant to function? What are to be our priorities as a church? What are the challenges that threaten the church? The world desperately needs the Church to be healthy and strong because its impact is meant to be world-changing. Join us as we study and discuss this important part of the work of God in His world!
