May 27th Bible Class: 
“Just 23 Easters left?”
 

What does it mean to you that the institutional church
in America is declining as it has done in Europe?  Pastor Steve will lead a discussion on what the forecasters predict for the future of mainline denominations, and what we as a church and as individuals can do to reverse the trend and grow the Kingdom of Jesus Christ by
the power of the Holy Spirit.
   Meets in 201 at 9:30am.

When God’s Spirit Moves

God is eager for us to experience a fresh sense of His presence and power through the Holy Spirit.  Do you want to know God’s fullness in your life?  Do you want to learn how to better listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit in prayer, and be part of transforming the world?  Using the video teaching of Jim Cymbala, Pastors Steve and Brad along with Gloria Ruppel will lead a discussion on all of these topics. Room 201.

 

Befriend

Is real friendship too risky?  We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat to the safety of our small, self-made digital worlds. Tragically, even the church can become a place that reinforces this isolation. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Using the video teaching of Scott Sauls, Christians are invited to see the breadth of Christ’s love toward people they often avoid. Learn what it means to be a good friend in an age of judgment, isolation, and fear.  Led by Sean and Staci McMahon in 102/103.

 

Worship: Why do we do it?

We attend worship on Sunday, read our Bibles and sing songs, but why do we do it?  This class will study the why and how of worship, wrestle with some tough questions regarding worship, examine music along with studying the liturgy and what that means for us on a weekly basis. Led by Craig Harmann and Pat Durham in 101.

   It’s essentially the “Netflix of Video Bible Studies” because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. And you can also view them in a group setting through a TV or projector.

   There are over 14,000 videos from great teachers. You should have already received an official “invitation email” to give you FREE access to this library. If you haven’t received it, please check your spam filter. Because it was coming from RightNow’s system it may have got caught there. You must accept the invitation in order to take advantage of this amazing opportunity. You will set up your own user name and password to access RightNow Media.
