Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.

My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.’ John 14:23

The deepest joy of life is knowing Jesus, loving Him and becoming like Him. This is the life of a true disciple of Jesus. To facilitate this growth and equip you as a disciple, we offer these opportunities to grow in knowledge, love, skill and application of God’s Word. In each of these classes you will experience sound Biblical teaching, thought-provoking discussion, fellowship and learn practical ways for you to live out your faith. Classes are grouped by topic and are designed to meet you wherever you are in your faith journey. You may choose to attend any class. To learn more about the spiritual growth process, check out Lead Pastor, Doug Brown’s “Spiritual Formation Paper.”

101: Sexuality – The Gift & the Challenges
If we are being honest, most of us have questions about sexuality, both about God’s purpose for it and the troubles that seem to plague us and those we love. Through this class, we will offer Biblical wisdom and resources on some of these issues (including pornography, sexual abuse, and sexual/gender identity), as well as casting vision for healing and the beauty of God’s intent for sexual expression.

401: Couples Class – The Meaning of Marriage
This class is uniquely designed for couples who are engaged, or married with or without children up through Middle School.

According to the Bible, all modern-day assumptions miss what marriage is about. In this six-session video-based Bible study,Tim Keller and his wife Kathy draw a profound portrait of marriage from the pages of Scripture that neither idealizes nor rejects the institution but points us back to the relationship between God and man. The result is a vision for marriage that is refreshingly frank and unsentimental, yet hopeful and beautiful. A leadership team of ten couples will facilitate and teach this DVD series.

401: Life Together – Beyond a Facebook World
We live in a world where there are a million points of connection through Facebook, Twitter, etc., and yet we feel so alone. We desire and were created to know and be known, to be in community and to have purpose. It reflects the heart of God and His desire for us. As we learn about small groups, we’ll explore what gospel community looks like, how we create it and how we can participate in meaningful connection in the family of God and His world.
