Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles
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 ulti-mate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. This study will share 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.

Loving People to Christ
That we might love our neighbors and share the love of Christ with others, the class will give us tools to cultivate a spirit of evangelism at LPC. The book we will use says it all “Organic Outreach for Ordinary People -Sharing Good News Naturally” ($10). Objectives of the class: increase compassion for lost souls • increase the quantity and quality of our spiritual conversations • let God have his way • be comfortable sharing your story and the gospel • awaken the Holy Spirit in all of us to Love People to Christ • foster culture of evangelism at LPC. Presenters are Joe McKenzie, John/Fran Morris, James Martin, Karen Kilpatrick, Terri Catanzaro, Jim/Trish Garrett.
Do you know that God is crazy about you? In Crazy Love, Francis Chan challenges us to pursue the relentless, all-powerful love of God. We will engage in honest self-examination, considering how to respond to that love with a selfless, Christlike life. Led by Nina Dorsch; book $10.
Christianity in America
Historians tell us it’s vital to understand the past to avoid repeating its mistakes. Our video teaching series on Christianity in America led by Dr. Stephen Nichols will survey the history of Christianity in America beginning with the Puritans. We’ll discuss the First and Second Great Awakenings, the rise of liberalism, fundamentalism and evangelicalism with the thought a clearer understanding of our past will aid steering a proper course for the future. Every generation must decide whether to stray from the truth to gain the world’s approval or stay the course at any cost. Dr. Nichols examines the lives of figures who accommodated the culture of the times and others who maintained their commitment to God’s Word. By relying on the Lord and learning from the tragedies and triumphs of those who have gone before, we can be better prepared to be faithful disciples no matter where or when we live. No book or study guide purchase necessary. Led by Steve Newby.
The Marriage School (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. The class includes discussion, teaching and testimony. Cost: $420 with partial and full scholarships available (free to LPC families). Led by Daniel and Rachel Sachs.
