Every Sunday until June 3, 2018

11:15am – 12:10pm

We have two classes offered this quarter, which runs from March 11 through June 3, 2018. Join us for either of these classes, which start at 11:15 a.m. 

 

Understanding Church History


Teacher: James W. Scott
Location: Auditorium

Keeping names and dates to a minimum, we will explore how the church of the apostles developed over the centuries into modern Christendom. We will look at church history from the perspective of biblical teaching, and try to see both how Jesus has been building his church and how the forces of darkness have been opposing and undermining it.

Our studies each week will be largely thematic, focusing on major events and trends. Our goal is to gain a better understanding of how the Christian world got to be what it is today.

Schedule:

March 11:  Introduction

March 18:  The Expansion of Christianity

March 25:  Persecution

April 1:  Authority and Power

April 8:  Liturgy and Sacraments

April 15:  The Defining of Orthodoxy

April 22:  Efforts to Experience the Divine

April 29:  The Development of Roman Catholicism

May 6:  The Protestant Reformation

May 13:  The Splintering of the Protestant World

May 20:  The Threat of Islam

May 27:  Modernism and Materialism

June 3:  Democracy, Egalitarianism, Individualism, Consumerism

 

Commending Christ


Teacher: Tom Tomer
Location: Conference Room

The Apostle Paul tells us to “be wise in the way we act toward outsiders; making the most of every opportunity”. Much of our everyday interaction is with those outside the faith. They’re at the workplace, in the mall, in our neighborhoods, even in our families. These people are of great concern to us. They’re living apart from God’s mercy in Christ and will surely face his wrath on the Last Day.

But, we also know how difficult it has been for us to commend Christ to our friends and associates. Would you like to be more intentional in communicating the gospel?

Please consider joining this discussion. We’ll be interacting with a book entitled “Get Real: Sharing Your Everyday Faith Every Day”, by the Rev. John S. Leonard, former professor at Westminster Theological Seminary and founding pastor of Cresheim Valley Church (PCA).
