Parents Connecting

Room 307 at 9:45 a.m.

What is your calling as a parent? Many parents get lost while folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

This study will share fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel that shows us that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Led by John Untener & Christy Johnson.

Wonderfully Made

In this class, we will explore what the Bible says about human sexuality and how we can speak the truth in love to people struggling with their sexual identity. Pastor Peter Larson will teach the class using a video series and other teaching materials. The cost is free.


Knowing Scripture

Room 313

Every Christian has the privilege and duty to study God’s Word diligently. Dr. R.C. Sproul’s book, Knowing Scripture, and its accompanying video series will guide our study. We’ll learn numerous helps for personal Bible study through basic, foundational principles of biblical interpretation. Dr. Sproul offers several pitfalls to avoid and clearly explains eleven basic steps of interpretation and simple how-to’s for using them. We must improve our interpretation skills because accompanying our privilege to study is our responsibility to interpret correctly. This is a basic introductory course in hermeneutics or the science of biblical interpretation for lay people, not seminarians! Led by Steve Newby. 


The Sermon on the Mount: Life in the Kingdom

Fellowship Hall 101

A study of chapters 5, 6, and 7 of Matthew’s gospel, the Sermon on the Mount. Christ’s clarion call to life in the Kingdom provides teachings about the hallmarks of the Christian character, the deeper implications of God’s law, the righteous acts of giving and prayer, and the solid foundations of faith that guide the relationships among believers. Facilitated by Nina Dorsch, our primary text is Matthew’s gospel; The Sermon on the Mount by Sinclair Ferguson is optional.


The Marriage School

Sept. 6- Dec. 13 (No class on Nov. 22)

6:30-8:30 p.m.

Why doesn’t marriage, our most intense lifelong relationship, come with a manual? We want our marriages to glorify God, but what does that look like? We know God calls us to love and respect our spouse, but we need practical steps to get there. The Marriage School offers The Third Option a 14-week relationship skills course that helps couples build stronger, healthier marriages. The course is designed for healthy couples who want to grow stronger, committed couples who suffer from conflict or miscommunication, and couples who are in crisis.
