BIBLE CLASS ELECTIVES
 
  • Equipped to Serve: Room 320; Sundays @ 11:00 AM; Dr. Bob Paeglow and Anna Leung

A Sunday elective for those who want to learn more about caring for the marginalized. The elective is based on materials called “Equipped to Serve” which has helped mobilize a suburban church outside Grand Rapids, MI engage their vulnerable neighbors. The curriculum entails off-site experience of listening to and serving the poor together, as well as in-depth studying, processing and connecting in the class.

 
  • International Justice Mission Prayer Group: Room 325; Sundays @ 11:00 AM
IJM provides an updated prayer list each week for us to pray through. IJM strongly believes in the power of prayer. When we pray about the very difficult and painful circumstances in which IJM finds children, women and men, we partner with them and God himself, in setting them free. We learn a lot about various forms of human trafficking, slavery and other forms of oppression around the world and how IJM works not only to free those trapped, but also how it works with local governments, law enforcement and courts to reform justice systems.
