Theology/Bible Pillar

Theology of God

Led by Tim Dix
Room: CLC F-201

No doctrine or aspect of theology is more basic than the doctrine of God, sometimes referred to as Theology Proper. Since the term theology (the study of God) is often used for the study of other biblical subjects like the Bible, angels, man, salvation and so on, Theology Proper is the designation sometimes used for just the study of God Himself. Rather than an exhaustive treatment, this study is a general overview of the key features of what the Bible teaches about God, His existence, Persons and attributes of the Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This study is a foundation for solid spiritual growth.

Propel Women Conversation Series: Influence

Facilitated by Jessica Nicholas
Room: WC-221

We don’t have to speak in front of thousands or write books read by millions to have a strong influence on other people—we simply have to be around them. Whether we’re aware of it or not, our words and actions can impact others in powerful ways. As we encounter others in our homes, schools, workplaces, and communities, we can learn how to use our influence for God’s glory. The Influence Conversation Series features practical wisdom and inspiring insights from Christine Caine, Lisa Harper, Dianna Nepstad, Oneka McClellan and Brandy Cheek.

 

Electives

 

Defined Bible Study

Led by Brantley Scott
Room: WC-219

When you introduce yourself to someone for the first time, you have an opportunity to define yourself. You disclose your name, profession, and interests. These factors help our culture define us, but are those answers enough? There are bigger questions our culture can’t answer: Who am I? Why do I matter? And before asking, who am I? You must first answer, who is God? The Scripture teaches we are made in the image of God. We do not define ourselves—the Creator does. Once the answers are clear, we can move forward and discover all God has called us to be. Book Cost – $10.00.

Old Testament Survey – Part 2

Led by Doug Osborn
Room: CLC F-201

Did you know the Old Testament contains more than 2/3 of the text of the Bible? Did you realize the Old Testament timeline covers thousands of years of history and tells us the stories of people whose lives still affect world events today? Are you familiar with the Old Testament prophets that describe in detail the characteristics of the Messiah and the events that happen when He comes, hundreds of years before they take place? Have you ever read the Old Testament books of poetry and wisdom literature that contain inspirational and instructional passages we still use today to inspire, comfort and inform our lives during life events and are ubiquitous in both classic and contemporary literary works? From the description of Creation in Genesis to the last book of the Old Testament, the book of Malachi, the Old Testament contains stories and teachings that can inform, inspire and transform your life.

 

Practical Pillar

 

Life on Mission

Led by Brantley Scott
Room: WC-231

Living a life on mission is the story of everyday, ordinary believers leveraging whatever levels of influence they have to bring unbelievers to faith in Christ. This Bible study connects you with God’s mission and equips you with the tools to confidently share your faith….using just 3 Circles.

 
Gospel Centered Parenting

Room: WC-227

In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. Using the book Parenting by Paul David Tripp, this class offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, it will present us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, you will see that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose and joy. Book Cost – $10.00

 

Men/Women Pillar

 

Be A Godly Man

Facilitated by JT Toavs
Room: WC-219

God has created men to have incredible strength. But today’s culture has hijacked masculinity, distorting strength into passivity and abuse. This class will invite men to embrace God’s definition of masculinity and to step into His calling upon their lives to wield their strength on behalf of others. God has designed men to be protectors, providers and defenders. When men act like men, everyone flourishes.
