BIBLE CLASS ELECTIVES
 
  • Unlikely by Kevin Palau: Dr. Bob Paeglow, Class Facilitator;  Room 320; Sundays @ 11:00 AM   (Postponed until further notice)
This class  is based on Thom Rainer’s book. It is focused upon transforming from a passive, information gathering, inwardly focused believer to an active, outwardly focused disciple. Empowering the believer to pick up their ministry and “run the race.”
 
  • International Justice Mission Prayer Group: Room 316; 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. 
 
  • 1 Corinthians: Tom White, Class Facilitator, Room 325; Sundays @ 11:00 AM 
  • The Art of Marriage; Bill & Carolyn Law, Class Facilitators, Room 351; Sundays @ 11:00 AM 
God can turn any marriage into a masterpiece. Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives. Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form—challenging to master but definitely worth the effort. This class, featuring a video presentation and discussion of marriage
